    Ammo selection at Wally World today...

    I happened to drop by my local WalMart about an hour ago and for the first time in over 2 months they actually had .40 in stock when I went in. Decent amount of it to for what's been round lately.

    Anyways, they basically had two brands. White box Winchesters, 165 grain at $35/100rd. box. I picked up 2 boxes, figuring it's good enough for the range (as a side note, how would this be as a defensive round if push came to shove?). But I also saw some Tul-Ammo Brass Maxx - 170 grain which I thought was odd, as I've never seen that load on shelves. It was also comparatively expensive at $22/50rd box. I also am stigmatized to stay away from Tul-Ammo from my LGS not allowing it.

    Online shows a pretty decent divide between "it's decent" and "it's terrible". So I figured I'd ask here if anyone has any experience or input for the Brass Maxx line.

    I went to three different Wal-Marts today (and Bass Pro) and all shelves were empty. I was however able to get the ever so attractive female worker to divulge when the shipments came in and the time when they began to stock the merchandise.

    As a bonus, I also got her phone number and have a date with her on Saturday. :)

    My local wal-mart has also been getting a decent amount of 40 S&W in every few days. So much so I traded my Glock 19 for a Glock 23. Why pay $22 per 50 for 9mm that I can't even find?

    My Walmart actually had two shipments in two days. Before that, they were getting one about every couple weeks.

    Pro tip: if you call, they'll usually tell you if they have any in stock. Of course, it might all be gone by the time you get there, but at least you'll know if you have a hope in heck of getting it. (of course, you lose the benefits of getting pretty employees' phone numbers, but whaddyagonnado?)

    Congrats on the phone number. That's the only thing I know of that's harder to get than ammo.

    One Walmart in WV had around 200 boxes of 40 ammo. That's it, but they had a lot.

    I'll share the info with you guys, but keep in mind this may not be the same for every Wal-Mart.

    She said the trucks arrive (just about every day) around 5-6PM, but the merchandise doesn't start getting put on shelves until about 9PMish. She also said, not every truckload contains ammo.

    After learning that Wal Mart sat down at the table with Bloomberg Obama etc and works with them in their little anti gun circus
    you can find the letter one of our members recieved from them on this forum. and admit to going beyond the regulations the law proscribes to infringe on our 2A rights, I nor my family will purchase ammo or a candy cane from them again. Ammo ill get at my local LGS. If Wal Mart wont support us I wont support them.

    I of course didn't take a picture of her while there. If she's okay with it, I'll take a pic of her on our date for the good sake of DC community. :)

    lately since ive had money for bullets ive been going to walmart everynight around 8 when they put their shipments out. sometimes its nothing and some times its something. last week to different times i got 1 100 round pack of 45 3 50 round packs and 1 50 pack of 40s all were winchester white box. and yesterday they had 3 federal 115 gr 9mm 100 round packs in and i was gona take em all but this guy ive been seeing their also looking for 9mm wanted some so i got two boxes andlet him get one. and the lady said they had more in the back. so i think what theyre doing (atleast at my walmart) is setting out 3 or 4 boxes here and their so people dont buy 10- 12 boxes at a time and when those 4 boxes are gone will put a few more boxes out a little bit later

    .40 is the only caliber I've seen at Walmart in forever. Unfortunately, I don't have a gun that shoots it.
