Seems Like Walmarts a hot mess with their pricing strategy. I imagine the ammo gets scarce soon.. The elections will generate a run on ammo... Maybe thats the reason for the drastic hikes

I have never bought ammo at Walmart. It's too expensive. I can go a few mile away to "Cheaper Than Dirt" and pick up a box of Brown Bear 9 mm or Tula 9 mm for $9.29/50 round box.

IME, price isn't the problem with

Wal-Mart ammo.

1.-Availability--major problem, they don't stock much and run out fast.

2.-Getting served--they have another major problem getting their

shirt together and unlocking the ammo case. I've seen entire shifts,

sometimes two or more, when they just would not get ammo out for you.

3.-Selection--fairly limited, also, see "Availability".

4.-Ignorant salespeople--one does have to wonder what middle and

upper management would think, if they could see the massive negative

effect their own employees have on sporting goods sales...

My biggest beech is #1
Why don't they figure out they need to stock more of what they run out of fastest

Like I said I am an employee of Walmart and the only way I can ever get a descent amount of ammo is my contacting the ammo company and ordering directly
