All around my parts is a 2 box (100rd) limit if they remember to call you when it comes in for .223/5.56, 9mm & .45ACP. Believe me with this gem also, the ammo prices are the same here than up North with no exchange being taken into account........
    You can take ammo down to the US. No limit actually specified, but I’d pay attention to their 5,000 round export limit.

    Personal use, not for resale. However, if you’re sharing because they treated you before...

    Don't use Cabelas as a Guage on price, they have always been insane. Go to a place like Budget Shooting, way cheaper.

    I believe that's a Canadian import limit, and only for approved ammo....which should probably cover most everything the average person would buy. Don't bring ammo back from the U.S. though unless you have an export license, which if you're Canadian, you don't. Unless things have changed recently, but I don't think so.

    This is only about going down to US.

    There was a guy entering from Mexico with just over 5k that got in trouble. News reports.

    Do as I did, ask the Border guys as you clear before you do it next trip. And carry evidence of your gun purchase from the FFL as extra support if needed. They just state “reasonable amount” last time I looked.

    And preferably, clear US customs in Canada. YVR should be used to shooters going back and forth. You might have to go to secondary to get your answer.

    Yeah that's what I mean, as far as I know ammo is covered by ITAR, which means it's a big no-no for Canadians to be taking ammo out of the U.S.

    The Canadian side will only care about the amount and the approved list.

    The latest issue of Calibre magazine has an article on their anticipations of ammunition prices depending upon who gets elected in the USA. Either way, doesn't sound like much will be available.

Yes prices will always go up but where is the tipping point when nobody can actually afford to shoot any longer.

    I just can't believe the nerve of some people on cgn's EE. Trying to flog 8 pound jugs of powder north of $400. Some at $450. That's 60 to 70 percent above distributor pricing!! Only because of the shortage. People are just down right greedy.

    I have 16 pounds of Varget and 16 pounds of Retumbo. Both unopened and surplus to my needs at present (because my opened jugs are still 3/4 full). I would not try and rip people off for 60 to 70 percent more than I paid. Just to try and make a quick buck and take advantage of people.

    Sickening!

    It's kinda wonky at the moment. I can find some ammo on sale at many Canadian online retailers. That doesn't fit a shortage scenario, unless they just want to move it because business is slow.

    I'm not exactly sure where some prices were before - maybe sometimes the sale price is what it was before February this year.

    What's in stock in my local Canadian Tire isn't bad - it's far better than 2014.

    I hear the local Bass Pro is short on a lot of ammo. But those guys have the strangest cycles for getting goods in. I think a truck arriving now was ordered by a computer in Fall 2019. They will have a sale on a firearm and have zero in stock before and after (this was prior to the pandemic - I tried the raincheck).
