    If you talk to the right people they will hold some for you, when it comes in. I got 2,000 yesterday and have a total of 3,600 rounds. At this price It makes me want to get more.

    I invested in .223 rifles: Sig 556 and Mini-14. Going to get rid of the Mini. I just dropped $259 on 1k rounds of 5.56 Wolf. Poking around on the internet for the last month and looking at this thread, I wish I'd gotten an AK.

    Woot! The Academy got a lot more in stock so I purchased 2k rounds. Now they need to do the same deal with the .223 :cool:

    Bought a case today in Houston. There were at least 20 cases out where I could see them, and probably another several cases worth out in individual boxes.

    have you noticed that Academy's price on Monarch 5.45 is about 8.99 a box and Monarch 223 was around 6.99?

    Kinda kills the idea of getting an AR or Polish Tantal for me....especially since my 3 SKSs shoot the same caliber.

    Yep, the AK rules!! LOL

    The local Academy in Houston was sold out of full cases - I did not feel like messing with individual boxes -

    But later in the day I was driving through College Station (Home of Texas A&M University) I spotted an Academy store and figured it was worth a shot -

    They had at least 25 cases of 7.62x39 - what a sight to see.

    I put 1,000 rounds in the cart and was heading to the checkout when my wife stopped me -

    She said looks like they had a couple cases - so I tell her - they have at least 25 more - so she says - "YOU BETTER GET AN EXTRA ONE BEFORE THEY SELL OUT" :wow: - :hearts: So I turned the cart around and got an extra 500 rounds.

    My plan was to have a total of 10,000 rounds for the AKs before the election - this puts me well over that - :milestone::banana:

    I stopped in to the Academy in College Station today (Sunday 11/2) -

    I counted 75+ cases of 500 - the price was $4.86 a box -

    I ask the guy behind the counter - he said the sale ended today -

    So I say - you have over 75 cases - it will take you a year to sell all of these - how about selling me a few at the sale price?

    No can do - corporate sets the price -

    Looks like in Texas the price has gone back up.
