Try GUNBOT.NET or AMMOSEEK.COM. Used both many times.

Shoot some thing other than your 9mm. Lots of 40's and 45's available. I picked up 500 rounds of Korean 9mm at Cabela's last weekend for $13 bx. Lots on the shelf no limit. Bulk 40's and 45's also . No 22lr's. Wally had 22short bricks cheap picked up a couple, haven't had the old gallery gun out in years or my Beretta pocket pistol. Guess I will be shooting those this week.

I guess that may depend on where you live. I haven't seen a supply of service caliber ammo in the Pacific Northwest since King Barry's second coronation. I slowly built up a good supply of bulk ammo as well as premium over the years before the current shortage, so I'm not desperate enough to buy imported stuff yet. I guess in some respect, that makes me a prepper and this is a SHTF situation; I was prepared.

Kentucky gun company has WOLF 9mm FMJ in stock at ~ 12.19 a box , this morning. WOLF shoots sooty, but reliably goes "bang" . I picked up some WOLF .45, at 17.89 /50 .

I have been getting federal 9mm FMJ for $14 per 50 count box. Walmart corporate policy is 3 boxes per customer per day. Any store that is limiting customers to one box per customer is overstepping corporate policy. I would write walmart corporate to report the store manager who is limiting customers to one box of ammo per day.

Same here with out Walmarts - 3 boxes max regardless of count. Gotta get up early and get in line. They sell til they run out which is usually before they reach the end of the line of those waiting.

I agree with johnr1943 - gunbot and ammoseek do work. You can sort by cost per round and only show where in stock.

I bought 100 rnds .308 Win online for $40.00 plus s&h. Still a good deal. Add your s&h then divide the total by the number of rounds to calculate the cost per round.

Went to Denny Dennis Sporting Goods here in St. Louis the other day and they had two shelves full of 9mm 115 and 124 grain. I asked the lady behind the counter what the limit was and she said no limit. I bought 5 boxes. They only ammo they did not have was .380. I could not believe it.
