holy crap, ammo is expensive now

Something you won't have noticed if you're not into shooting: right now, ammunition is hellishly expensive. Between the weak dollar, strong commodities prices, and China's insatiable demand for metals, shooting is getting pricier and pricier. I just stocked up on ammo with a bulk purchase, and for the amount I paid I could have bought a new gun. And I mean a pretty nice new gun.

Granted, my new stores will probably last me through the end of the year and then some, but *still.*

I am going to seriously have to look into reloading.
