    I just got back from Walmart. They increased the price of the Federal 9mm 115gr from $9.47 to $10.47 for the 50 round boxes. Kinda sucks but its still the best deal for range ammo around here.

    To my suprise they also had a pretty good supply of both Federal and Winchester .45acp in both 50 and 100 round boxes. It's the first time they've had a decent supply of .45acp in a long time.

    Anyways, I just thought I'd share. Happy Shooting!

  3. I guess I'm finally going to have do what so many others here have suggested and take the plunge and begin reloading.

    That sucks, while everyone else is coming down on ammo prices walmart hikes theirs. One thing that pisses me off is that it takes walmart personnel 3 hours to get me my ammo out of their case. I can never find one, then when I do its the wrong one, then they finally get there i can get my ammo. Its a royal PITA around here.

    I can get wolf for $8 a box locally, laquered steel academy 9mm is 10 bucks.

    Haven't checked my local Wally World for a while, but if they're raising prices at some locations it's just a matter of time until they raise them everywhere.

    $10.47 a box makes it $209.40/1000. Add in my local sales tax, that brings it up to $224.89/1000.

    There are better prices to be found online - even when you factor in shipping - for new, non-Russian ammo than $224/1000.

    Maybe this will help quell those "Is it really worth reloading 9mm?" questions. But, I doubt it. Regardless, according to internet lore, the weak stuff does not run well in the Gen4 Glocks so who really cares. :supergrin:

    Price increase here to $10.47/box. That is $230.34 per case of 1000 for me.

    Guess I'll just start ordering online and stay away from Walmart as much as possible.

    Noticed that they have raised many of their prices on oil too. Castrol GTX is now $3.97/qt.

    cole, My G4 G17 now has 8,500 flawless rounds fired and most of it was 115gr. Champion. Not the first issue. So much for internet lore.:cool:

    I just got back from Wally World. Federal Champion 9mm, 40 and 45ACP went up $1.00 a box each. Still not bad compared to other prices around.

    9mm $10.47
    .40 $14.47 (Might be $14.97)
    .45 $16.97

    Each of the above were a dollar less last week.

    Good thing I have a local sporting goods store that if I buy ten boxes I end up paying $8.35 a box after tax. But then again that's still to much for me, that's why I have started reloading.:devildance:

    Yeah Walmart sucks. It's a PITA finding someone in the sporting goods dept.

    I pretty much am only buying Silver Bear online at $8.75/50 now. It works.

    That is a bummer, but still hard to beat for the most part.

    That is better than a 10% bump.

    Not dumping on WM as their ammo prices climbed a lot slower than some and were stable for a long time. But, now other suppliers are dropping prices and WM is raising them?

    Ammo prices are horrible. 9mm really isn't cheap any more and 40 and 45 are over the top expensive. At my LGS they want 14 a box for reloaded 9mm. $16 for .40 and $20 for .45. I have a feeling that in the near future high volume shooting will become cost prohibitive for anything other than .22lr.

    I have a feeling that with the amount of people buying 9mm guns the price of 9mm will eventually be close to the same as the bigger rounds simply because the demand is greater than the supply.

    In my area I still see the Federal at $9.47. I do see the 22 LR CCI varies from store to store by $0.50.

    Actually, I am hopeful. Cabella's has S&B brass-cased re loadable for $9/50. You can get steel cased for close to $8/50. WM is going up, but many of the online vendors are coming down.

    Back in "the day" (bout 5-6 years ago) I never bought at WM as online vendors were cheaper. Maybe those days return.
     
  19. I checked a Walmart in Greenville, S.C. today and, Yes, The price had gone up. But, They sure had plenty of ammo to choose from.

    Nah, if it hasn't happened yet it's not going to. Supplies and prices are going in the right direction. Even 380 ACP has come down a lot and a LOT of those guns have been sold.
