wallyworld in Raleigh NC had FMJ for 9mm at 9.62 a box
I have yet to find a Wally World in the Denver area (West side of town) with any ammo in stock .. they literally laugh when you ask. Gander has ratcheted up their prices and stock seems better at the Arvada store vs. Aurora .. but prices are are routinely ~15%+ higher than anywhere else ... when the other places actually have anything in stock.
A recent example ... 1000 rounds of PMC 55 grain .223 = $419 at Green Mountain Guns and the same ammo was $499 at Gander. :-( I know these guys are likely worried about their future in light of our current administration ... but this is gouging .. IMHO. :-( FYI, I bought the same ammo from Green Mtn Gun back in November for $350 / 1000 rounds!
I won't even touch any other ammo at Gander unless desperate .. even things like CCI Mini Mages are $2.50 / box higher at Gander. I did find good pricing on safes at Gander compared to others .. FWIW.
