    I need to start a little stock pile, I figure 2 boxes a week that I dedicate to storage should do the job.

    I wish my Walmart sold Federal. The only 9mm they have is Winchester White Box.

    Good find. Our local WM has been getting 9mm and 40 in more frequently the last month or so. I have been able to pick up 35 boxes of Federal to boost my backstock over the last month. It surprised me when I got six boxes Saturday afternoon and then went back on Sunday night to find a good amount still on the shelf. Of course another six went home with me.

    Pistol ammo in the Walmarts around me sell out so fast and they never tell you when they are coming back on the shelves. A lot of the locals here think that the gun stores are going in and buying them all and stocking them on their shelves at a mark up. I guess reloading is in my future. At $189 for 1000 I would no bother with buying factory reloads.

    I can reload a 124 grain fmj 9mm for about 13 cents.A bullet is 8 cents,A primer is 3 cents and the powder is 2 cents.Thats 6 cents saved off of that 18.9 cent price( plus tax) if you can find it for that or just find it. I shoot 300 rounds a week.Thats 18.00 a week saved for 50 weeks equals a dang nice reloader( dillon550)Now I had been saving my brass and anyone else's I could for a year before I started reloading.Plus its fun and I can make make cleaner burning, lower flash, lower recoil loads.Did I mess up on the math? Nope

    Lower right forum jump..reloading

    20 cents/round sems to be the magic barrier for 9mm. Our Wally's sells Federal for just under that and WWB for just over - assuming they have stock on hand, of course. I wouldn't be able to get 1000 rounds in one trip though, as there's a 6 box limit. Guess I could do that if they'd get the UMC 250-packs back in stock.

    I don't know her you got your primers but around here they are much closer to 4 cents, and 8 cent a bullet?
    Where? What kind? Must be casting your own. If so they probably cost more than 8 cents when you figure in the electricity.
    Bottom line is I relaod also, but I can't reload any jacketed load for close to what Wally charges.
    Even Rainer is 12 to 14 cents and they are only copper coated.

    All the walmarts around here have a 6 box limit, so no thousands rounds for me....that is if you can fine 9mm ammo. The days the ammo is suppose to come in there is a wait at the counter.

    The other day I went to go look for some clays to shoot some skeet and all three walmarts were out of clays, can you believe that, out of clays.......

    I bought 300 rounds at Wal-Mart last night (100 of Federal and 200 of WWB). I've bought 300 rounds a month for the last 3 months from Wal-Mart. I'm quite pleased that the supply is starting to come back a little bit.

    I'm still waiting to see anything in 9mm or .45 at my local walmart. Nothing but shotgun and odd calibers for the past . . . as long as I can remember.

    None of your damn business!!
    The price of ammo at Wal-Mart still needs to drop about $3 to $4 :upeyes:from its current price in most areas.
    Where I live its $9.47 a box of 50. It should actually be at $5 and some change. The price will have to come down:faint:.

    Yes, I reload:supergrin: and I still by factory once in a while to just have some on hand for new shooters and such.
