    Where, near the Chicagoland area, are some of you finding 9mm ammo at Walmarts? The one near me in Northlake, hasn't had any in a few months!

    I need to go to the range for some practice, but I only have 200 rounds left and don't want to waste those!...:dunno:

    I haven't seen ammo at ANY WM lately. Go to Mega Sports in Plainfield,

    I agree. Walmart hasn't had any in months. Megasports does and 9mm isn't outrageous.

    My three local Wal-Marts usually have some combination of .45acp and .223 or even .40 S&W, but I rarely see 9mm. MegaSports in Plainfield and Gander Mountain are always stocked but their prices are a joke.

    Gander wanted $69 for the 100 round box of WWB .45acp that Wal-mart gets for $35. MegaSports is almost as bad.

    I just bought 100 rnd box of Winchester 9mm bulk ammo at Megasports for $24.99. At a shop in Aurora they wanted $33 for the same ammo. I can't seem to find anywhere that's selling for less than about $0.25 per round.

    Complaints about Wally World being all out of 9mm are all over the Internet. :dunno:My son even works at the local store and I can't get an inside line on it.

    $25 at Mega? That's fair. Maybe I should cruise over there and see what they want for the 100 rd box of WWB in .45acp.

    Gander wanted almost $70 :steamed:

    I think I'd feel better if someone pointed a gun at me while asking me to pay $69 for 100 rounds of WWB....at least then it's an honest robbery. :cool:

    A Wal-Mart north of me had well over 2,000 rounds of .223 the other day. The had a little 357 sig, some 32 and 25, but nothing of interest to me such as 45acp.

    I recently bought 250 rounds of Remington/UMC at Bass Pro in Bolingbrook for about $55.00. There are 5 boxes of 50 rounds each packed in a bright yellow outer box.

    Wow, that's a fair price for BPS. They're usually not quite so fair. But Gander Mtn is far, far worse.

    The Wally World in Crystal Lake IL has 9mm intermittently, it usually gets there on a thur. night, or a Sun. night shipment.

    The sporting goods dept folks don't even know when it's coming in for sure, as it varies, but it's always a PM shipment so it can be put out around 8:00 AM the following day.

    A local Wal-mart today had a ton of 223, 40, and a bit of .45acp. Also a lot of large bore rifle.
