    Wal Mart ammo prices went up!

    That's right.......my local WM last night had plenty of 40S&W in the 50ct Federal. Past week and since the first of the year, it's been $12.47 per box. Well, now it's $13.97. Up $1.50 per box. I knew it was bound to happen sooner or later, and here it is. Still cheaper than anywhere else....when they have it. So don't be surprised when you're out and about this weekend and happen to stop into your local WM.

    Up $1.50 beats the heck outta up150%!

    Like you said it is still cheaper than anywhere else.

    Thanks for the heads-up.

    I noticed that increase this past week on Federal ammo. I would assume it also increased on the Blazer ammo but not sure. Both were marked at the same price two weeks ago.

    It seems the .40 is all I find at WalMart lately. Once in a while I get there when they have some 9mm, but if and when they have any .44 or .45 you don't want to see the price
    And don't be silly enough to ask for .38 or .357, they just look at you like they are wondering what planet you came from.

    It seems.....

    that I still ,after months of return trips to w/m, cannot find any 45acp at any price.

    It's still better than the $20-$40 per box of 50 cheapo Independence and Wolf stuff I saw at a gun show last night!

    Man, I'm glad I'm all stocked up. How's that $8.97 9mm Blazer looking? I haven't seen any in a while. Have they raised that too?

    At least some of you folks are fortunate enough that your local Wal-Mart occasionally has some pistol ammo to offer. For months now my local WM has only had shotgun, and some rifle ammo to offer. Of course I only make about one trip a week so I may just be hitting the store after the last shipment has sold out.

    If the hoarding ever stops and demand starts falling behind supply, you may see it come down. That's a big may. Who would have ever thought the supply was be this bad this far out. I'm starting to wonder if maybe there isn't some conspiracy thing going on. Oh, wait a minute. I'm not paranoid.

    $13+ box isn't so bad.

    I think we have a long way to go before the hording stops and production catches up. Once the hording stops others who have not been able to find ammo for a long period will start to restock keeping the shelves low for a while.

    Ramrod, that's still not a bad price for .40 S&W.

    I find the Remington UMC .45 230grn stuff at Dicks Sporting goods here in Northern VA every now and then. If you have one of those around you might want to check them out. It isn't cheap though. Seems to be running around $20 a box.

    Have you guys ever contemplated that things will always be this way, and that ammo will be scarce forever? I figure Obama gets us two ways, one there is no ammo, two there is so little of it that no one practices, and can't hit the broad side of a barn! haha
