Possibly. I'm not too optimistic about ammo prices. I remember a time, not to long ago, that I could walk out of walmart with a federal 100 round pack for $19.99 + tax. Those days are long gone, panic-struck idiots let these businesses realize many were willing to pay double that.

I stick to reloading my plinking ammo and only buy factory loaded ammo to use for concealed carry and home defense. Much better value, a 50 round box of 9mm costs me $4.50, a 50 round box of 45acp costs me $6.50.

Anyone that isn't wealthy and enjoys shooting large quantities of ammo is a prime candidate to learn to reload. I get to shoot 3xs as much as I would if I didn't reload, and it's a fun hobby in and of itself.

"Moms Demand Action" sounds less like a gun control group and more like the title of a porn flick from the mid-90s.
