Everything seems to be going up. Cost of processing a deer went up again this year, but really can't complain . . . cost increasing only $30 over the course of 10+ years.
But do feel you pain over the costs of ammo increasing. One reason for trying to stay with Remington Core-Lokt's. At least those still seem to be less than $1 per cartridge, finding a 20 rd box for around $17 or $18. They're relatively cheap and still as effective as ever.
