Ive done that at wally world also. Dont think it was that much but usually when i go they have the WWB 100 count of 9mm for $20 and i usually buy all that they have in stock if i have the extra cash. I have a picture of when my son was just a few months old when i bought some ammo at walmart. Not $1300 worth but thats what they had in stock.

Stuff like this is why we have ammo "scares". People get all freaked out by the current administration and in turn the consumers cause the prices to go up. It's basic economics 101. High demand is going to push prices up.

Yeah last time you couldn't even find .22 cartridges for quite awhile. There was a shortage on all kinds of ammo.

Most people will buy 10X the ammo they will EVER use in these panic buy situations. Most of this ammo will go bad before these knee jerk jerks ever use it.

Kept is a cool dry dark place ammunition will last decades. and in Air tight ammo cans makes it last even longer. Im shooting 7.62x 39 that was made in the 50s and never had a problem with any of them.
If these people don't use them I believe UPS and USPS will ship to Alaska

Ammo will last a long time, but it's better to buy some as you use it so you don't go broke...

Most of the jerks buy ammo because they think if the price goes higher they can sell it. Or if SHTF they can trade it for stuff they need.
This is possible but most likely will just get wasted at the range or given a box or two to the buddy's.
