100 round bulk packed boxes of Federal 9mm, 115 grain fmj were $24.67 per box. There was plenty of this ammo on the shelves.
This is the first 9mm I have seen in Walmart in several months. The clerk at the counter told me that Walmart has gotten a large supply into their main distribution center, but they have not yet put out the price increase which is anticipated at any moment. Of course, they have already had several price increases that did take effect over the last few months.
50 round boxes of the same ammunition were $14.75 apiece. This is the lowest price on good quality 9mm I have seen in some time. There were probably 40 boxes or so on the shelves. It seems, in our area at least, that people are about topped off and ammo is not being sold the instant it hits the shelves.
Federal 45 ACP was $25.77 a box. This is not a particularly good price, but I bought some anyway. There was also a great deal of Winchester ammunition on the shelves. They had plenty of .40 S&W, lots of .223 by different manufacturers. There was .38 Special, .357 Magnum, and .44 Magnum. About the only thing I didn't see was .22 Long Rifle.
I noticed that the 100 round packs of Federal and Winchester #7 and #8 shotgun shells, in both 12 and 20 gauge, were now selling for just under $30.00. I bought several hundred rounds of that ammo a couple of years ago and it was $14.00 for the 100 round packs.
Sportsmans Guide and AIM seem to have plenty of ammunition on hand at reasonable prices. This is all good news as far as I can see. I plan to lay in some more of just about everything, in case the stories of big price raises in the offing turn out to be true.
