Eschew Obfuscation
I still kick myself for not following Para's advice (buy it cheap, stack it deep) for other calibers. But, I do have a healthy amount of 9mm.

I was looking for something in my storage closet and noticed this price sticker on a stack of WWB.

Wow. What a blast from the past! Eek

I have 2,000 rds of Winchester Q3131A I purchased at Bass Pro Shop in Grapevine several years ago for $1 a box.

We were staying in the attached Embassy Suites Hotel and Bass Pro had a limit of 1 500-rd case per customer. I made 4 trips back to my room with a case each trip.

WOW!!! I remember those days when ammo was plentiful and CHEAP!

At least you guys still have a WAL-MART that still sells ammo.

Inside the SOCIALIST REPUBLIC of KALIFORNIA, Wal-Mart don't sell ammo? Citizens are restricted to ammo purchase where they must be approved and registered by the states DOJ to buy ammo and pay a Fee.
Also no online/mail order ammo sales.

LEO and FFL dealers are exempt from this restriction.

grumpy1 beat mine by more than double, but still...

The Western stuff I believe is probably the newest of the three. The Rem and Fed stuff I bought in bricks of 500 or 1,000, I think?

When I was at an indoor range last week, one guy saw that Remington and said "Remington in a green and blue box. I haven't seen that for ages." I'd say so. That has to be about forty-five years old.

When I first got into shooting in 2006-2007, the 100 round boxes of WWB 9mm were $15 each.

Seems like a dream now Frown

I have one box of Winchester and one box Federal 50rnd 40s&w HPs that I bought at a gun show around 2003. Each one has a $4 price tag.
Around that same time 100rnd boxes of WWB were $9.98.

At some point in the early 2K's, Bass Pro had the green and white box Reminton-UMC 9MM on sale for $3.99 a box.

Initially no limit at the semi-local one until a fellow that I knew as a customer at a local shop bought a pallet worth.

Then they put in a limit.
