While on lunch yesterday, stopped by sporting goods at a nearby Wal-Mart to see what kind of ammo they had(fools errand, I know). Walked to the case and they had 6.8 spec. I was amazed and amused at the same time. I wonder how long that will last?
I mentioned in another thread, I stopped at one the other day and all they had was .17HMR and .338 Lapua. The .338 was $63.97 for 20 rounds. This was on top of the day before when I stopped at Academy sports and found about a dozen boxes of 4.6 x 30mm.
I was down at Wal-Mart a few weeks back, to my shock the shelves were bare as far as ammo went, EXCEPT for 6 lonely boxes of a brand I have not shot before in .40 S&W, 180gr FMJ Hollow Points, 50rnds per box, $20 a box, limit 3 boxes per customer. I promptly picked up 3 boxes then had my wife run through the line and grab the other 3. Haven't tried them out yet to see how they run but that is the first time since December that I have seen them with ammo., hell it's the first time I've seen any ammo since December.
