    Smile Wally World .45 cap

    Had to go to WM last evening. Stopped by the gun counter. Lo and behold they had several 250 rd. boxes of Remington .45 acp. Price was $112.00, about .45 cents per round. So I bought one. (My ammo allowance for two months) How does this compare with ammo prices in your area? I must have been there at just the right time, the ammo case is usually empty. Maybe things are getting a little better.

    I have never seen those in the local WM, but BP has them for the exact same price.

    I have never seen that at my local Walmarts. I'm flying down to Clearwater, Florida this week and I plan on hitting all of the local gun shops and Wally Worlds while I'm there. Their prices and selections will be a lot better than here at home.---Sturgis

    They had at the Wally world in Sugar Land, TX a few boxes of 9mm, but i was looking at .40S&W the price seemed to be about $2.00 higher per 50 (WWB 180 Gr) then last month when i purchased some. They had Federal FMJ at a decent price but only had 5 boxes. They had a some SD JHP (Very few left) but they are between $28-30 per 20 rounds

    I have found bulk packs ( 50-100 ) for 45 and 40 are pretty easy to find around here and on line ... 9/38/380 etc all hard to find local or for a decent price at least .. Right now all I am really seeing for 380 or 357 is expensive defensive loads not plinking ...


    and that price is not too bad for that much imop at least right now ... 45 and 40s are good guns to have now I got to say ...

    Same here except 38 are fairly common like the 40 and 45.

    I exaggerate none, throughout this whole "shortage" I have always been able to find .45 (and .40 and all popular rifle cartridges besides .22LR) at Wal-Mart. I go there roughly four times a month and I can recall only 3 times total that they did not have .45 in stock. Every time I'm there, I buy the allowed limit of .45, usually three 250-round boxes for about the same price you mentioned per.

    TBH, I'm surprised about that. I would have thought .45 is just as popular as 9MM and would have been just as rare, but nope. Fine by me, that's for sure!

    Edit: I thought it was a little under $100 with tax, but I got the price confused with the 9mm 250 round boxes. $112 for 250rnds of .45 is the price here, too.

    I have little use for Wal*Mart but I have to commend them on not gouging people on ammo. The OP's price was a few cents higher per round than I get from Natches but when you figure freight, especially on .45 buying local makes a lot of sense. Freight on three hundred rounds of .45 ACP 230gr from Chatttanooga TN to Berea KY was $18.59. That is just $5.00 dollars less than a 50-round box.

    You just can't hardly afford to buy ammo on line unless you get some stellar deal. On the other hand, if you don't have a LGS On-line is the only option.

    My Best!

    Never seen the 250 round boxes in WM here, but the 100 round boxes run about $45.

    Too rich for my blood. I'll wait for under $0.40 per round. That might not sound like much per round, but its $65-70 per case.

    Patience grasshoppers. Let the supply overstock. Let these Gunbroker hoarders wives find their stockpile of ammo for guns they don't own, and scream for them to "get rid of that junk!

    I'm already seeing entry level AR's going for under $700. Still MSRP for a slightly used gun (only tried to sight it in once), but the same rifle was $900 a year ago.

    At WW just this past week saw 50 round boxes of stingers for $6.37, Federal 9mm fmj 50 round boxes for $13.97, 50 round boxes of Winchester 45 fmj $21.57, and 325 round tuna-cans of 22lr for $14.97

    While traveling out of my area I’ve seen WW prices vary on ammo from $.15 to a $1.97 a box and $18. to $125. on firearms. Their prices do vary on everything they sell from area too area.

    Just this past month at the LGShow prices were $12.80 for 50 round boxes of PMC 9mm fmj, $12.50 for 50cal ammo cans, $18.00 for 40 round Pmags & $9.50 for tan-flat dark earth 30 round Pmags, $21.00 for 25 round & $10. for 10 round Ruger 10/22 OEM mags, $185. for 500 rounds of Federal XM193, DDM4-V5 $1,275./OTD, and an Aimpoint PRO for $365., M4-2moa for $525. and a 3x magnifier for $580.

    Only ammo that hasn’t comedown at the LGShow is 22lr. But Bass had Remington Thunderbolt 50 round boxes of for $2.49, 50 round boxes of stingers for $6.99, and 325 round tuna-cans of 22lr for $18.99 this past week and their a few cents too a buck or so higher then WW on their ammo. Cabela's isn't too bad on some prices but Gander is still way too high and I will not never ever never step foot inside dicks.

    The nice part too about buying at the shows is 99.999% of the tables build the sales tax into their OTD prices too. So that $13. box of PMC 9mm + 6% sales tax $.78 = $13.78 would still be a good price though WW's $13.97 + 6% tax $.84 = $14.81 isn't bad either.

    More like entry level AR's were $2k a yr ago & are $500. now

    Shop around I've seen Colts 6920's going for $1,000. & DD going for $1,275. OTD at the shows lately. My local WW had a Colt 6920 with a quad-rail for $1,067. about 5-wks ago. Same rifles were well over $2.5k a year ago if you could find one.
