    I just spotted this ammo today while at Walmart. I normally go for the cheapest ammo (Tula), but I noticed a box of Federal .45ACP behind the shelf. Red box, double stack 100 round pack of ammunition for $29.99. So basically the same price as Tula but in a reloadable brass case.

    I havent been in country for very long, so I was just wondering if this was new, and if anyone has any experience with this ammo?

    I've shot a few hundred rounds of this with no problem. I get a few packs every time they are available at my local wally.

    Wow. To feed my new 1911 until I got reloading supplies I was paying right at $20/box for Federal after tax. $30/100 really isn't bad at all.

    This was my suprise. This is just a few bucks more than the same amount of 9mm ammo, and at the same price as the Russian steel cased ammo.

    $15 per 50 is a good deal. But I don't know of a single Walmart in my area that sells ammunition. I'd like to know where these elusive gun-friendly Walmarts are...

    Lol. They seem to be all over the south. I haven't made it anywhere else since we got back to the states.

    Just come on down to the Confederacy. Wally loves selling guns and ammo down here. Would be awesome if they sold handguns. Maybe they do somewhere??? but not in FL.

    I found them at my local store for 29.97. I cleaned house. Good deal.

    definately a great deal. Damn Federal Champion has those awful small primers though.
