    Yeah I just saw it too. It was $17 for 50?! This was FMJ target ammo, thanks but I'll stick with $11 WWB.

    Just too expensive. I made a comment on the other thread that I saw this at Wal-Mart. Went back a week later; they still have about thirty boxes of it.

    RWS? Dynamit/Nobel ammo? Great stuff. Probably worth the $17.

    All the local Walmarts in my area are stocked up on this stuff and have been for the past 3-4 weeks. Doesn't seem like the Walmart shopper wants to part with $17 for a box of 50 FMJ as they are still in stock. However, the cheaper Federal and WWB are gone within 6 hours of receiving a shipment.
    To all you current and former military ... thank you for your service! Let no one forget that the sacrifices you have made allow us the freedoms we enjoy.

    I don't mind paying that much or more for SD bullets, but what's the point when I'm shooting at paper targets?

    Yeah that was all that they had in stock at my local Wallys.

    Yeah I was shocked when I walked into Wal-Mart the other day and they had like 200 boxes of this stuff, they also had some Remington UMC for 4 dollars less per box. I agree it may be worth a little extra because of the bullet weight but for range use I'll stick with the cheap stuff.

    I'll take Western European/Swiss ammo any day of the week.

    Great stuff. It's basically NATO ball ammo, but not marked with the NATO headstamp. Good stuff to keep in the trunk.

    RWS/Dynamit Nobel is some of the best ammo made, that being said, I shoot cheap stuff for targets. I sure would like to get some more RWS/Dyamit Nobel in .32, some of the best ammo that I have. BTW; RWS , at least in .32, is made in Germany not Switzerland.

    The 9mm is definitely made in Switzerland, as I looked at the box yesterday.

    Yeah........I know about it....it's way over priced! $16+ for a box of fifty. They can pretty much KMA over that deal.

    Probably made by Ruag in Switzerland and branded RWS as they are one of the brands owned by Ruag.
