I started hunting/shooting again this past October (before all the NEW madness) so I really don't know the price of things as to a year ago. Obviously I know things have gone up but by how much would you think. What were the costs for SPP, bullets, 22lr bricks, .40, .45, 9mm etc. A friend of mine is stocked up on everything it seems and I told him I found 22lr bricks for 21.99 a couple weeks ago and he shook his head and said he was buying those for 9-10 bucks last year!
Here's what Ive been paying to date:

22lr 500-525 bricks 21.99-33.95 (last week)
380 ammo 50 rounds 17.00-21.00
SPP 3.95/100 locally - 31.95/1000 on line (today)
Remington 209 match primers 49.95/1000 locally
Powder 84.00/4lb can
Bullets 380 cast 31.95/500 fmj were about double that
Brass (once fired) 380 7.00/100 and .40 8.00/100

This time last year I was buying primers for $28.00-$31.00 /k local. I picked up some LPP two weeks ago for $34.00/k, and found 2k SPP for $32.95 this past weekend. My LGS in town still has primers priced at $28.00/k, but hasn't had any in a month. I cleaned him out back in Jan. He said his prices will remain the same as for now since his vendors haven't increased prices. I haven't noticed any increase in powder prices local, and haven't noticed any shortage either. Bullets have gone up. TJConevera has gone up $3/k in 180gr .401" Berry's. My LGS also went up $5/500 on the same Berry's bullets. I usually buy all my bullets from Internet sources, and have noticed slight increases since Feb of last year, but most of the increases happened back in Nov. My problem is finding bullets. I struggled to find primers back in 2008-2009 after the election. So this time I stocked up on primers thinking bullets wouldn't be a problem. Boy was I WRONG!

I haven't seen bricks (500) of. 22LR for less than $15 since 2007. I don't know where your friend was paying $10 per, but I would have bought them out. Unless it was Remington crap.

most of the items in your list cannot be purchased now at any price. ...there is simply no inventory on the shelves.

auction cites command huge prices now for these items..... get used to it because it is not going away anytime soon.

I built up my ammo inventory from 2011-2012.
When I'd see something under my "buy" price I picked some up.
On average I paid:
common 9mm fmj: $10-$14 50rd box
common .22lr: $15-$18 500brick
common steel .223 $4-$5 20rd box
common .45 acp fmj $30 100rd box
common .38 spcl $15-$17 50rd box
common .357 $17-$19 50rd box

Now you can't even find it, and if you do, your likely to pay the "I'll part with it for this much" price

+1 to Josh on the price of .22 ammo last year. I buy a lot of .22s for summer camp each year, and in 2012 CCI Blazer ammo was running 4.1 cents a round ($20.50 a brick). The good stuff was 9.5 cents a round.

380guy, you did well at $ 21.99 a brick.
