Compared to the Swiss made RWS ammo, Federal and Winchester stuff is "crapp". If it's too expensive for you then don't buy it.

Wal mart introduced that brand about the beginning of 2010, sort of an intermediate round, Federal replaced Blazer and should be on your shelf as well as winchester, my local store has all three brands, I buy the Federal when in stock, I guess your store had no federal left is all. check back soon.

I saw that for the first time today too (I only check Walmart maybe once a month).

$16.97?? You gotta be kidding.

Don't worry, we won't.

Crap? It fires every time. Good enough for me.

I was totally happy with Blazer and am still plenty happy with federal. No need to pay that much money for some range/ plinking ammo.

RWS is the only thing my local Wal-Mart has had in the past two months. I won't pay almost double for range ammo. For the past eight months there hasn't been any WWB value packs and I've never seen any Federal or Blazer 9mm ammo there. Never.

Are you telling the OP to learn to reload so he won't complain about ammo prices?

Or

Are you trying to say that the RWS ammo in the photo is reloaded?

Some folks don't have the sense God gave a billy goat.

Economics 101.

Don't purchase it.

Sales plummet.

Sought for profit margin is not achieved by manufacturer.

Manufacturer seeks price point where purchases re-occur.

This tends to be much lower than the original price.

Bottom line? As long as people purchase the ammunition at the increased prices, there is no incentive for them to lower those prices.

Capitalism at it's finest.

Going on 3 years of not buying a factory round. I just chuckle at these threads.

No offense meant to anyone, it's just that seeing it from the other side, I can't believe I didn't start sooner.
