Ammo at Walmart
 
Walked in to Walmart today, and they had the American Eagle .223 ammo in stock (doesn't happen to often).

The price last week was $5.97 per box of 20.

This week $6.97

Holy Hanna Montana that is a huge increase for 1 week. What is going on?

At least 12 ga hasn't gone up - YET!

When fuel costs rise everything goes up dramatically as every step in the manufacture of an item pays increased cost in fuel and energy.

Businesses dont pay tax and they dont pay for fuel or energy or labour. The end consumer pays for all of it.

I was in WalMart today looking at the Federal 9mm ammo. It has also gone up about $1.00 in the last week.

And our current energy secretary would like to see US gas prices equal Europe...about $10 per gal

The comrades in DC think this is good because we will all buy solar panels and
Chevy Volts.

Tack

You're lucky - my local Wal-mart only stocks .223 JHP, and at $16.97 for a box of 20, they can bit a big one.

The walmarts here in Newport news. Va.doesn't even sell ammo, maybe because were a commie-wealth.... idk.

I've been buying 5-10 boxes of the tula brand in .308 everytime i hit up wallyworld here. @ 8bucks a box of 20,its better than buying offline....for now anyways.

I usually buy my 9mm there. Winchester white box 100 count for $22 and some change. Thats a pretty good deal around me. Usually cheaper than buying online plus i dont have to wait for them in the mail.

Wow here in Texas the price for 45acp has gone down about 4 bucks

Don't mess w/ Texas!!;)
The Wally world near me carries crap for ammo in the new store. It is a Super Wally world. I won't even walk in the door. Buy ammo, bullets, and Brass on line. Powder and primers locally. I buy .44-40 locally as it is always dirt cheap.
I can't pass up $11.00 for 50 rounds loaded ammo these days.
