    I know we have an Ammo Hotline running in the Florida Glockers Club forum, but I have not seen any mention of prices in those posts.

    It has been quite a while since I have been able to purchase handgun ammo in my area, so I am a little out of touch as to what is considered the going-rate and what is price-gouging.

    Can some of you who have been lucky enough to recently purchase ammo let the rest of us know what the current prices are? I'm sure any caliber in any quantity will be of interest to us, but I am mainly interested in .40 caliber. Please let us know what and how much was in a box (100 rds FMJ, 50 rds FMJHP, 20 rds Gold Dot, etc.).

    Lastly, can you let us know where you made the purchase? Something like: Walmart, internet dealer, local gun shop, dealer at gun show, etc. would be great.

    Thanks, a lot.

    I pick up boxes of .40 S&W at the local Wal-mart for somewhere around $12.50/box 50 rd boxes. 180 Grain FMJ That's for Federal, They also had Boxes of WWB in .40 S&W which was somewhere around $16.50 (+Tax) This was also for a 50 round box. FMJ. When I picked up my 23 a month ago, I did pick up a box of Speer Gold Dots JHP 50 rd box, 165 Grain and that came to around $40.00 after tax (Gun shop prices obviously):crying: Also, I'm in Lake County (Clermont)

    The gun shop / Range I go to (Shoot Straight, Apopka) has .40 S&W FMJ for somewhere around 17.00 / box, 50 round boxes, and they will sell it by the case at a 10% discount. IIRC, they have 9mm for somewhere around $13.00 /box of 50 rounds +tax. There is a gun shop down the road from me here in Clermont, I will be going to on Saturday, I will see if I can remember to ask them their prices on ammo in .40 The Wal-Mart near me typically has a good amount of .40 but other calibers it's hit or miss.

    Federal has been showing up more frequently at the walmarts near me at $8.97 for a box of 115g 9mm. Also seen alot more winchester white box. Cant remember the price but not much more than the federal. Also went to Shoot straight just last week and they had some boxes of 9mm for $11. Dont know what brand since I didnt buy any (still had the walmart stuff). I cant say the prices are going down too much but the demand is definitely not what is was before. Checked Florida Gun Trader and there's still scalpers trying to get $16 a box for their blazer brass they've been hording all these months. Guess they're trying to cash out before more walmart ammo starts showing up and starts collecting dust on the shelves.

    The Walmart on us 19 in Bayonet Point, wich hasn't had any handgun ammo for almost an entire year, currently has:
    $10.97 wwb 115 gr 9mm fmj 50 round box.
    $12.47 federal champion 180 gr .40 fmj 50 round box.
    There is now a six box limit. Employee told me that up until the box limit a couple of guys would come in and buy their entire stock spending thousands of dollars at a time.

    I purchased 6 boxes of Federal, 115g 9mm at Walmart this afternoon in Ormond Beach. $8.97 a box of 50. Whenever I stop into Walmart, I always stroll by the ammo counter just to check. They haven't had any in months. I went by today and they had 9 boxes sitting in the cabinet. Their limit is 6 boxes, so I was happy to get that.

    I dont know what it is but most of the wal-marts here in Jax have .40 whenever I go and is out of everything else I need.

    Last I saw, the blazer brass is $12.47 for .40.

    The Walmart by me didn't have any blazer, in fact I asked and the guy said they are carrying Federal now. Any idea how this is compared to blazer? It was the same price.

    Federal is the next box I am going to pick up and see how I like them. Probably better than the boxes of 100 rounds of Winchester white boxes.

    I did the same thing at one of our Gainesville Walmarts, today. $12&change/box. Got one box and that was all they had in .40 cal (or any other handgun ammo).

    Still no .22's except for a few small, but pricey, boxes.

    In St. Augustine, Gander Mountain has FINALLY got ammo in stock. I hate to have to drive all over Flori-DUH to get ammo for my Glock 27.

    You havent been going to Wal-Mart enough. I've been able to buy plenty of .40, 9mm, .22LR, and 12 gauge slugs/buckshot between Super Wal-Mart as well as the Archer road and 13th street Wal-Marts. I've even seen some .223 and other stuff starting to show up.

    WWB .40, 100 round pack - $29
    Federal Champion .40, 50 round box - $12.50
    WWB 9mm, 100 round pack - $20

    The can always go to Picketts, Micanopy shooting sports, Sapps, or M&C army surplus and get ammo...Of course you will be paying more. I think M&C had a box of 20 gold dots (.40) for almost $40! :faint:

    I mainly stop by the sanford wal-mart after I get out of work around lunchtime and they usually have 9mm and 40 cal in good amounts. They seem to rotate between the wwb's and Federal 50ct boxes when it comes to 9mm, and usually have federal .40 in stock.

    Everybody else's prices still apply; Fed 9mm $8.97, Fed .40 $12.47, and wwb's $19.97 when you can find them.

    I like the federal rounds, very little deposits..i swear anything is cleaner than wwb's...plus...Federal is cheaper..
