The predictions are cheerfully optomistic, bur one can hope:
Metal prices have already fallen from the highs of the bubble. Copper and lead are far lower than they were. You will know that the bubble is close to the bottom when you see .22 LR on sale for below 4 cents per round. At the lowest, we might see .22 cartridges below $10 for 500.Missed the gun show last weekend so I don't know if the crash is genuinely starting around here, but I do know there is plenty of .22 out there waiting for its owners to realize that +$65/brick is no longer a viable assumption.
