This is probably a rookie question, but does anybody know what the heck happened to make the price of ammunition for the 300 ultra mag jump so dramatically about a month ago? I bought a Remington 700 BDL 300 UM (stainless, synthetic) a couple years ago & REALLY like it -- very flat shooting, with plenty of punch. At the time I bought it, I knew ammunition prices were high, but I expected (incorrectly?) that the caliber would become more and more popular and the price would maybe go down or at least stay steady. However, about a month ago (thankfully, right after I had purchased a couple boxes), the price jumped by $10-13/box -- the few options I can find in Anchorage now seem to run well over $50/box -- ouch!!
Anybody have a clue -- other than supply/demand?
