Wal-Mart Ammo Sale

Post by ShockedNKansas » 15 Sep 2012, 18:29

I was at Cabela's today shopping for stuff and when I was in the ammo section, I was notified by a fellow consumer that Wal-Mart had Federal 9mm for 20.00 per box of 100. I promptly went and bought two boxes. They also have Federal .45ACP for 30.00 per 100. I bought a box of that as well.

Those are some solid prices for range ammo this close to the election!

I'd rather reload than shop at Walmart :laugh:

Although I do admit, I go there on rare occasions. Usually sometime between midnight & 3AM is a decent window.

C'mon, there is a certain... entertainment value associated with going to Wally-World:

I did some checking and it appears it is a special price -- at least in some areas. This is the official Wal-Mart ammo thread on the web. http://www.xdtalk.com/forums/ammo-can/1 ... e-285.html

Another thing, ammo stock is very inconsistent around the U.S. If you have 100 round boxes available to you at the sale price, you seem to be lucky. I might go pick up some more today if there is any left. I think in Kansas the sale price is rarer because there are plenty of people here buying ammo regardless of price.

Now there's a phrase I never thought I would see, "official Wal-Mart ammo thread."
Maybe its just me but that sounds so "blue light special" :D
Oh it's an XD forum, that explains it :p :laugh:

Checked the link - holy crap! 285 pages of walmart yap? :suicide:
Thank you for linking to the most recent so that we didn't have to sift through that.

BOOM. Also, you left one store to save a few pennies at another? Reminds me of people who drive out of their way to wait in line to save 3 more cents per gallon on gas. Wow, your prius holds 9 gallons. You wasted 15 miles and another half hour of your life to save 27 cents. Kudos.

Hey now. That 27 cents adds up when up multiply it by fueling 14 times a year.
You just saved enough to buy another gallon of gas - provided you don't live in PRK.

A few pennies? You can't touch 10.00$/box for new 9mm anywhere. Even bulk online orders. The only local options I have are gander mountain. $25/50 for .45 ACP sorry I'll support Walmart :). That's about all I buy there besides brake cleaner and other random stuff

Every purchase of 9mm has been under for under $10 a box, brass or steel-cased.

Even as I type this, these sales exist.

All of that sub $10 is all steel cased. Again for brass cased, reliable NEW ammo you can't get it pretty much cheaper than Federal Champion from WM :) Don't forget to count in shipping as well.

I didn't see brass as a qualifier in your original post. also, freedom munitions and aim surplus offer new 9mm ammo under $10 per box and aim surplus even does free shipping quite frequently. plus for the $10 box at Wal-Mart, don't forget gas and tax.

again, I'd rather pay more to not shop there. it's been quite a few years Wal-Mart got any of my money.

What the hell? I start a thread about a great price I found on ammo and I'm rewarded by a member inferring that I am the kind of ignorant that would drive miles to save a few pennies? Sweet bunch! :skep:

And for the record, if anybody read my thread in the gun forum they would know that I had just bought a new 9mm pistol at Cabela's and needed some ammo right away. The best price Cabela's had on 9mm was 15 per 50, and in .45ACP, 25 per 50. Wal-Mart's price was 20 per 100 and 30 per 100 in 9mm and .45ACP respectively.

At Wal-Mart I paid 70.00 total for 200 rounds of 9mm and 100 rounds of .45ACP. At Cabela's I would have paid 110.00 so yeah, I think the price of a full tank of gas is worth driving a couple miles. And FYI, my car gets 40-45mpg's in city driving. :)

So much for trying to help someone out. My local Wal Mart usually has great prices, they just stay sold out. Ill pick up a 100 at a great price any day to send down range. Extra bonus I can re load the brass.
