    Ammo prices....?! 8-0

    Oh my.
    Dang...
    Shut your mouth.
    Iím just poking around online and what I see in stock (with 3-5 week shipping, mind you)
    9mm FMJ is 44-80+ cents per round....but you can camp out at academy and get it for 30 cents per round plus tax (33 cents per round)

    I saw .40 for 36-44 cents/rnd

    XM855 starting at 69 cents/rnd

    Anybody seeing different?

    I wouldnít wanna be the guy buying ammo right now, but if you are, maybe peeps will post up any good deals they see on ammo and components here.
    This reminds me of 7.5 years ago...

    Last week at Cabelaís, I was glad to find some .32acp fmj for only $17. My Wife shoots it in her Walter PP range toy.
    The same day at Academy in BR, I found a spam can of 7.62x39 for $160 and 5.7 at $23 a box(Federal American Eagle.)

    You can get some of what you need at one Academy or another if you are willing to drive around Southern Louisiana.

    I had consolidated to 9mm and .223/556 some time ago. I have a good amount of ammo but if I was shooting weekly like I used to it wouldnt last long.

    I've been shopping for something in .40, 10mm or 762x39 simply because I can find ammo at a not stupid price. I just ordered a Palmetto AK minutes ago.

    I just received a case of WWB 9mm from Cabelaís for $0.22/rd.
    Not the best ammo, but it should be fine for hitting steel.

    The deals are out there, but they go fast.

    CTD was selling Steel Case 9mm for $0.60/rd lol

    There is a shop in Ponchatoula selling .357 for $55/box

    I hear ya. I guess ya gotta weigh out cost of gas and savings on ammo. Sounds like you did pretty good. Are they limiting the amount you can buy like last panic?

    Lol, I did something similar over the last couple years. I had one RIA 1911 in 10mm and a substantial amount of 10mm ammo that I bought on the cheap. Built a AR in 10 and bought a double stack pistol. Problem solved!?! I think...

    A total of 3 boxes per visit. That means I purchased the spam can of 7.62x39 and the 2 boxes of 5.7mm.

    I pass two Academy's almost daily and was having good luck there until the last week. The last week they've been completely bare of 9mm.

    Voting is the responsibility of a citizen, even if voting may not necessarily be obligatory. To not vote seems to me to be an abrogation of one's responsibility as a citizen, regardless of one's politics.
