    Wally World Ammo Price Increase

    Southern Colorado Wal-Marts have increased its price on CCI Blazer Brass .45. I don't know if it's chain-wide or Regional or District. It was $11.88 - $12.88 (depending on which of the 3 stores I was in) for a 50-round box. It's now $14.88 for 50. WWB is still priced at $28.88. Either the greed factor is on the rise or someone realized one could buy 100 rounds of the Blazer for less than the 100-count WWB. Either way, I'm not happy about it!

    Ammo is getting out of hand. It's depressing to see the price increases for sure!

    I plan to start reloading my .45, just so I have the know-how and the components on hand. I already load my rifle and am pretty well set with that ammo. It will cost to set up a pistol reloading system as I really don't want to load my .45 with a single stage press. I think the investment will be worth it in the long run.

    Definately worth it. My cost to reload .45 acp is 1/3 the wallyworld cost.

    The prices have gone up alot in Florida also !!!!! Winchester 100rd boxes went from $18.99 to $29.99 in a 6month period !!!!! I have the press and all the stuff to reload but nobody to show me how ? I bought it when my uncle was alive . He reloaded for over 30 yrs. . Luckily there is a gunsmith 15miles from my house that sells reloaded ammo at a decent price and it's clean shooting .

    The reason the prices keep going up is because we are exporting so much lead to China so they can paint toys to sell back to us!

    Just as depressing are the empty spots on the shelves. Not just at Wal-Mart, either.
