    Hello all, I work for Walmart here in Jax, Fl in the Sporting Goods Dpt. Just thought I give you all a heads up about the new prices of ammo. We had price changes come down from home office yesterday, apparently Walmart has caught on to what other people are charging for (some) ammo.

    1) Pretty much ALL .22 ammo went up, all the 550 bulk packs we sell(Federal, Remington, Winchester) went from $15.47 to.....$18.97! However, we have the 50rd boxes of Federal Lightning rounds that didnt move, $1.47 per 50 ($16.17 per 550)

    2) Winchester 100rd Value packs of 9mm went from $21.97 to $23.97
    3) Federal 9mm 50rd packs went from $9.97 to $9.47
    4) Winchester 100rd packs of .40S&W went from $30.97 to $29.97
    5) Winchester 100rd packs of .45auto went from (I think) $34.97 to $32.97, not 100% on the actual price, I know they dropped $2 in price though.

    These are just a couple of the more popular rounds I thought some might be interested in, overall, not too bad considering nearly all the centerfire ammo with the exception of 9mm WWB went down in price. Also, all the higher caliber rifle rounds seem to have gone down in price by around $.50.

    Ahhh, yep, forgot about those, we dont have any in stock atm though, so that's prob why I didnt realize it. I think .357mag actually went down too, wanna say they went down nearly $2.

    The Federal 9mm have been $9.47 locally since they first appeared at Wal Mart.

    The last I heard the across the board mfg price increases were to start April first.

    Considering that none of that is available at the local Walmarts here it won't be a problem. Ammo is still MIA.

    Handgun ammo including .22 is pretty much non existent here in Montana.

    That's interesting. I skipped on buying a box of those today. I chose to wait on more federal coming in. The Federals are $15/50 and are my preferred weight of 180gr. Yeah its only a buck but for some reason it rubs me the wrong way.

    Just went to two N Dallas Walmarts this morning. I've been stocking up six boxes at a time (sporadically available in the last coupld of months) on the Federal Champion 9mm 115 FMJ boxes for $9.47, and just realized lately I did not have very much 22 LR, so I wanted some more of the $15.47 bulk boxes (550) of Federal "Value Pack".

    No price changes here. There was no 9mm pistol, but plenty of .40 cal Federal at $13.97.

    Thanks for the warning on the .22. The WM pricing has been lower than just about anywhere, and lately they seem to have more of all calibers round here.

    I was going to just post this as I came back from Walmart and hadn't looked at ammo prices in a while.

    Ours jumped from $20.97 to $23.97

    You know I'm starting to get old when I start saying the "I remember when" stuff.

    Not 3 years ago it was $10.97 or $12.97 locally

    You don't have to be old to remember good ammo prices. I remember $89 cases of 9mm and $160 cases of 45. It was only about 5 years ago. Ammo has gone up faster than just about anything else in the last 5 years.

    My Wal-mart hardly ever has Ammo and when it does I can't believe the prices.
    However it is lower than most anyplace else.

    Here's what i saw this afternoon:

    357sig Win WB 125gr fmj: $23.95/50: about 8 boxes on the shelf

    9mm unknown brand 115gr fmj: $16.95/50: about 3 boxes on the shelf

    40sw Fed 180gr fmj: $13.95/50: about 6 boxes on the shelf

    no other handgun calibers on hand.

    This is the 1st time I've seen 40 cheaper than 9mm in my area, though I've only been buying 40 for a few months now.

    First time I've seen WWB 9mm in over a year at Walmart (saw a few boxes
    of Federal back in December). Price was indeed $24 now, which actually isn't any better than what my local indoor range charges. Maybe the only reason they had any in stock was because of the price increase...the Walmarts near me never have ammo after 10am. Federal .22 is at $18 or $19 now. Sure sounds to me like they got a jump start on their "across the board increase." They also have a ton of expensive RWS stuff. I'm in MI btw.

    The federal .40 hasn't changed price yet (still at 14), so I wish they had Federal 9mm in stock as I think that would still be at $9.47.

    It seems Walmart is finally coming in line with what other stores charge for ammo. Bad for bargain hunters, good for people who want to see ammo in stock.

    I think all of the retail outlets, gunshops, etc. are going to keep raising the price until they find the point at which no one will buy it, then they will back off slightly and try to maintain that price point. No business or company is going to sell something for $10 when they can get $15 or $20. Just my opinion.

    .22 LR went from 14 something to 18 something here in Arkansas. And I bought the last box of 550. No more there, when not but 2 weeks ago they were full, with multiple brands. Recreational shooting seems to have have slowed because of all this inflation. Don't worry about the prices being bad, because the worst is yet to come.
