    I remember hearing that WalMart is owned by the Chinese,
    hence why the products sold there are relatively cheap (or use to be).
    I remember when dog food made in China and sold
    to us in USA there were dozens upon dozens of reports
    of dogs suddenly dying everywhere. So, needless to say,
    I stay away from dog products made and sold by them at
    WalMart's. My question now extends to ammo. With that
    reputation should I be wary as to the quality of ammo that
    is sold there too?

    Walmart sells brand name stuff. So it is made in the same place it is at another store. I know they sell Winchester brand ammo. The same goes for dog food: Alpo is Alpo, etc.

    yep. Wal-Mart, whether it's currently an American owned company or not (IDK if it is or not) does still carry American name brand products. If it says "Made in USA" then it is, unless it's counterfeit-in which case file a lawsuit and get us all a nice pretty gift.

    I remember it was a national news story back in the early 90's when a retired couple in Arizona found a product being sold at Walmart that was Made in China. Up until that moment in time, Walmart was all-American and to carry a Chinese product was shocking. Look where 20 years has got us...:(

    I think Target has slightly better quality cheap Chinese sh*t than Wal-Mart's cheap Chinese sh*t.

    WalMart is a publicly traded stock corporation (stock symbol WMT) headquarterd in Bentonville Arkansas. You can buy their stock from a broker, or directly from WalMart, and then YOU are a part owner. They are the largest corporation in the US for several years.

    Winchester ammo is made by Olin-Matheison, who owns the Winchester brand for ammo. WalMart's Mossberg shotguns are made by Mossberg. Their 10-22s by Ruger. Their Pepsi is made by Pepsi.

    Yes, I remember the pet food fiasco, but that hit EVERY company that sold a lot of pet food.
