    Cost of 9mm Ammo

    Bought my first 9 mm last fall and have been accumulating FMJ ammo recently. After a series of purchases, I've accumulated about 1500 rounds at an average cost of about .54 cents per round. Just wondering how that compares to the cost of 9 mm ammo pre-election?

    I have been buying 9mm all year at .20-.30 cents from Walmart. Mostly the fed. 100 round boxes that cost $21.97. I have about 2000 rounds

    I have seen it online in the .30-.40 range. Walmart here never has any.

    Just before The Banic, I bought a case of 1000 for $220. One of my LGS put out on FB tonight that they have 9mm in stock at $18/box of 50.

    I finally found some yesterday at an LGS while traveling in Indiana. American Eagle $21/box of 50. Terrible price, but I was just glad to restock.

    Wonder if we'll see anything close to that that again?

    That's about what I'm seeing in LGS around here.

    Seems like folks along the west coast are having more luck with ammo.

    Best deal in Dallas I could find per-crisis was Walmart, Federal FMJ Champion 115g 100 count for $19.97, or 20 cents per round.

    I recall the clerk bringing out two cases of 10 boxes each and only buying six boxes - 600 rounds, for $120. I told myself "well, if I run out I'll just come back and buy more".

    if you are paying more then $24 for a box of 100 you are paying to much and need to shop around. Not that hard to find if you put some time into it.

    You are doing better than a lot of people.....54/rd isn't bad for the current climate. I have been getting lucky at around .35/rd, but I reload for most of my shooting needs and only purchase new on a whim when I see good prices. Most of that luck has come from Cabelas, no sales tax and I leverage shipping with shotgun shells or reloading stuff that I constantly keep in my cart or 'wish list'. Hang in there, it will get better soon hopefully....

    I'm down to my last 500 rounds at the moment, but I've only ever paid more than 30 cents per round once, and it was when I REALLY needed some ammo for an event I was attending and couldn't find any. I paid 60 cent per round for a box of 250 on that occasion.

    I'm still getting the 100 count WWB at my local walmart for $24. I just have to get up at 3 AM to get it.
