.22 Scored !!

Discussion in 'Rimfire Forum' started by allegro, May 2, 2013.

  1. Entered Wally World to pick up a few things at 8:30pm. Decided to do the "dance" back to the Sporting Goods Dept and WOW....they were bringing out some carts of ammo.

    Scored 6 boxes (wife and I) of .22 GB's (225) and had another friend pick up WWB of .45 (100).

    Good score......good night !!!

    I suppose I should make a run and see what (if anything) they unload tomorrow...

    Same here- 3 boxes of 225/per box, after tax the total was $32.00 even. Just under 4-1/2 cents per round. The store 20 minutes further away has a 6 box limit but were already sold out by the time I got out of the first store at about 7:30 am. Glad I called them before going there first.

    They had a huge ammo shipment this time around- much like the days preceding the recent insanity. Besides the 12 box case of Remington .22, they got in about a dozen cases of ammo (much of it pistol) including .40 S&W, .45ACP, 9mm, .380 (costs more than 9mm), .38, .357, and some others I didn't wait around to see.

    I didn't do the straw buying deal even though I easily could have bought the entire case for myself. Bad enough that ammo is in short supply- I'm not going to make it worse than it already is.

    I picked up a 500 rnd box of 22LR Stingers at Midwayusa.com earlier today. First 22LR I have purchased since December. I have also found 223, 9mm and 380 for reasonable prices over last 2 weeks. I see all calibers becoming slightly more available. In fact as I write this, I see that midwayusa.com now has Remington 22LR in stock. Things are slowly improving.
     
  7. Just visited my local Wally World... typical shotgun stuff, and about 8 boxes of .45 JHPs were all they had.

    I'm looking for .40 and 9mm, so no luck for me.

    Scored a 1000 round box of Win M22 at my local Walmart tonight and 2 boxes of Federal 9mm. They got 1 case of M22 (that's just two 1K boxes) and 1 case of the 9mm. I was the 2nd guy there so we each left with the same same amount. Hope my 10/22 likes M22!

    Good deal! What did they go for, if I may ask? I'm asking because each WM store is free to set their own prices and sometimes the difference is fairly significant.

    Not too bad. I wouldn't hesitate to buy the M22 Winchester ammo, either. At least the Winchester .22 ammo should be better quality than the Remington green box "Golden" ammo that is made w/the bullet having a loose fit in the shell.:sad: I bought those for just 4-1/2 cents a round, but they don't work in all autoloaders and probably aren't the most accurate .22 round regardless of the type of action they're shot from.

    Anyway I paid about 6 cents per round before tax for Winchester Super X "Super Speed HP" .22 LR ammo in boxes of 100.

    FWIW, here in GA, WalMart's Winchester ammo is more expensive than similar ammo from other makers. Federal is the cheapest brass pistol ammo.

    To put ammo prices in perspective (somewhat), Cabala's had 2100 round boxes (included a metal box) of Federal Champion .22 ammo for $99.99 plus shipping. That's about 4.8 cents a round- before shipping! One more ammo box on top of the seventy dozen I already have laying around is not a selling point for me. So when WM has ammo, it's far and away the best deal out there. Again, in my opinion. :supergrin:

    Off topic, but those who are relying on gunbot.net for ammo updates may be missing out on some suppliers. Case in point, Cabela's is selling 100 round boxes of Remington Viper .22 LR ammo for about 12 cents a round, this includes shipping (limit one box of 100). This doesn't show up (yet?) at gunbot...

    Walked into my WalMart this am and found a box of 1000 Winchester M-22 .22 LR ammo. It had been there from the previous morning; I believe he said there were three boxes that came in.

    So either this area has become (finally) saturated and guys have what they consider to be "enough", or they just didn't need a thousand rounds of .22 LR. Cost was $48.37 plus tax- exactly the same as Kwesi paid.

    What is good news out of all this is, it seems WM ammo shipments are becoming more frequent and are comprised of the most commonly used pistol and rifle ammo: 9mm, .40 S&W, .45 ACP (.45 ACP Federal 230 gr. FMJ $28.97/100), .357 Mag and .38 Spl, .223/5.56, .308/7.62, 7.62x39, and .22LR. Recently I've even bought CCI .22 CB Shorts (I prefer the Longs, but these are still OK) as well as CCI Quiet .22 LR. I was worried I'd never see these again!

    What I haven't seen come in yet is .357 SIG, 10mm, .25 ACP, none of the .32s or .44s, no .41 Mag, no .45 rimmed, and only once for .380 ACP.

    Shotshells were always available (16 Ga was/is still very sketchy) but the selections were limited. I think this remains about the same, although I haven't kept as close a track on them as pistol and rifle ammo.

    One local Walmart had 10 boxes of Remington HPs (the flat 225-round box) last week. Another had the Federal AutoMatch 325 boxes (about 20-30 boxes). Neither lasted very long, but it didn't sell out in an hour, either. At one of the stores, the clerk mentioned that now they are re-stocking the ammo shelves at 5-6 PM instead of early in the morning.

    Keep looking, the situation is improving.
