I stopped by my local Walmart this week at about 9 AM and found that they had almost two dozen 325-round boxes of Federal AutoMatch (40 grain LRN) on the shelf. I picked up my three box limit at $17.73 a box. Even the employees seemed pretty surprised that they had so much ammo in stock.

I've made it a habit of stopping there in the mornings and found a few boxes of .308 and .30-60 hunting ammo for normal prices (~$1/round).

How does Walmart sell AutoMatch for $17.73 when Federal sells it for $29.99 on their website?

Lose a little on every sale and make it up in volume.

The Eley at CMP is now $134 - $170 a brick. RWS is about $100 a brick.

Ouch.

Just stopped by Walmart again and found a fresh shipment of ammo. Picked up three more 325-round boxes of Federal AutoMatch (40 grain LRN) but the price has gone up a little bit to $21.16 / box.

When I was in a Walmart, recently, the ammo shelves were completely bare.

Turns out my Kimber 1911 Rimfire Target only really likes the higher-velocity stuff. I'm in decent shape in that respect, but I'd like to replace what I shoot. One on-line retailer is showing CCI Mini-Mags and Remington Golden Saber for 18¢/round!

I recall paying that for WWB 9mm a few years back Frown

You can purchase cheaper direct from CCI. They have available as I type this for $0.12 per round.

My experience also, although I don't go there very often.

Thanks for the hint.

I had actually found that by myself and was wondering if it was legit. I guess now I know Smile

ETA: Done! That should feed my Kimber for a while Big Grin
