A: It is difficult to predict the price of ammunition. While it might seem that low demand would lead to lower prices, if demand drops too much, it is no longer cost effective for manufacturers to produce the ammunition, and then supply ends up becoming low in relation to demand, which, of course, leads to higher prices. Beyond that, raw materials costs and large contracts for other types of ammunition have more of an effect on the cost of ammunition as a whole than the demand for one specific caliber. You will notice that calibers that offer similar case sizes, powder charges and projectile weights to 7mm Remington Magnum are priced at approximately the same amount.
