Default Ammo prices

With ammo prices soaring, it makes one search out the best deals. But who is doing the price setting? A couple pics from the local wally world. This baffles me. There is no rhyme or reason to it. WMart also started carrying Federal 100 rd boxes of 230 gr FMC 45 ACP for $25.97. Saw this in two stores. Don't know if it was a fluke as there was no "spot" for it. Was in lower right side of display case both times. 15 year old prices. Grab'em when you see them.

I saw the .45 ammo at Blue Angel and also in Daphne. The BA W Mart was out yesterday. They only had 4 boxes the other day.

Go to Ammoman.com and see what he has. I have bought several 1000 rds. of .223 from him.

Sorry folks, I guess I should do some explaining. I'm not trying to complain about the prices in the pics; ALL AMMO IS HIGH. I guess I live in a fantasy world and still think of.38 spl as $8 per box ammo. What I am showing is inconsistent pricing. For the Winchester, 50 rounds of 130 gr FMC is $16.47. If I bought 2 boxes (100 rounds) it would be $32.94. OR I could buy the 100 round "value pack" for $34.97. A loss of nearly $2. Wheres the value in that? Now the Remington is another matter. In side-by-side comparison here, not only do you get a better round (if your pistol is rated for +P ammo), you save about $2 for the JHP rounds.

Walmart is famous for that. Not just on ammo either. You have to be very careful when buying "family size" grocery items as well. The larger quantity items are often more expensive per ounce than the smaller ones are....

So is Sams Club.... owned by Walmart of course.

I always do my own math to price out the cost per unit. In bulk its generally cheaper since you save the company the cost of packaging two separate items.

Yep, I buy mine when and wherever the bulk prices look good. Some times it's at Wally World, and others it may be Academy or even Bass-Pro. 'course, I'd be willin' to pay more at Bass-Pro if they had girls in bikinis and skates bring your order out to ya....
