hello,,supply and demand is the bggest factor in the prices your seeing ,,and it's a very hot selling caliber these days ,,i see factory ammo in the 35-40 buck range per 50 rd box,,and people are buying it!! the ammo companys are telling people that the conflict overseas is causeing the ammo shortage ,,at least thats the story dealers and distributors say there being told ,, the componants are in short supply also and finding small pistol primers is a hard thing to find in my parts ,,Brass prices are up and most of the brass being made is going overseas and demand is high ,,don't look for ammo to go down once this conflict is over and when it is i look for more restrictions to be placed on ammo ,,it's the governments way of enforceing gun control..without ammo how can the evil guns be a problem..and crimes gotta go down if theres no bullets for honest citizens,,lol,,lol,,yea right! gun shows are still your best bet for finding ammo at affordable prices ,,sporting goods stores are much higher these days ,,and if ya find any ya better stock up while ya can!!!

hello again,,i see alot of guys selling and buying guns that shoot cheaper ammo,,proably the cheapest thing to shoot these days is still the 9mm or 38 spl or 22 for plinking,,seems everything else is high ,,exactly what i was talking about ,,ya can't afford to shoot them so get rid of them,,and crime is gonna go away when nobody can afford to shoot ,,i'd keep your gun and just watch the gunshows and flea markets in your aera,, a big chain store with a W had some 380 cci ammo recently for around 20 bucks a box ,,look <email> ..sometimes ya can find some deals there on ammo,,also look at auction arms.com,,ammo can be sent directly to you with a copy of a current dl ,,also look on CDNN's site and cheaper than dirts site ,,they run some deals from time to time and ya might just find what your looking for at the price your willing to pay ..then stock up ..because it's gonna be like gold someday,,if you have it someone will pay what you want for it..

Manufacturers have come out with so many more guns chambered for the .380 because of people wanting them CCW. The .380 which was not a popular round a few years back. Industry just has to catch up. It can be found on internet stores like AIM, Sportsman Guide,Cabelas, and on and on. Just have to look

The cz52 is an affordable gun and the ammo, 7.62X25, is really cheap at Cheaper than Dirt.
