The price of spam cans of 7.62x54R seem to just keep going up or maybe it is just that the prices in my head are out of date. Anyway if you want some of these for practice or to put away for a rainy day I would look at getting them sooner instead of later.
Folks could say that you should buy lots and lots of common caliber ammo like .22lr, 9mm, .38, .223, 7.62×39, .308 and 12 gauge now because it is not going to get cheaper. Those folks would not be wrong in the strictest sense. It is unlikely that ammo will get cheaper. However this fails to look at the big picture. If you are barely making normal bills and doing the best you can to prepare that advice really isn’t all that constructive.
Look at your overall situation. Where does your ammo situation stand in relation to food, water, medicine, sanitation and other such stuff? If you are a bit short on ammo without any more urgent needs then focus there. Don’t do anything crazy just work on it as your finances allow. Consider making group buys with friends or family if you can’t afford whole cases. Making 2-3 orders over a few months will do a lot of good but shouldn’t kill the family budget.
Anyway those are my thoughts about that.
