    Not much of a shortage on most ammo at the gun shops here locally, but usually higher priced than what you can buy it at wmart. But, getting what you "want" or "need" at wmart is another thing in it's self.
    .223 ammo and .22lr....cant get it at wmart here. The bulk boxes of .22lr havent been on their shelves in about 2 months. I asked one of the guys that work there behind the counter, and he said it's on order, but thier main office seems to think that "they" know when they need it and not on what they order.
    I told him, is it me or is that totally screwed up!? Screwed up big time is what it is.

    You would think, that when they order the ammo that the DANG store needs as it sells, they woulkd get it? It dont.....messed up is what it is....just my 2 cents worth on wmart!

    WalMart is in business to make money.
    If your local one lies about how much ammo they have in stock, refusing to sell you more than two boxes - then re-stocking the shelf with two more - I believe you should contact corporate headquarters with this complaint. I feel sure they would not appreciate a local store LIMITING sales like that!

    SGAMMO.COM has ammo buy the box or case. Fast good prices sales all the time and When I asked about then not having Nagant pistol ammo, 7.62x38R, they started carrying it less than 2 weeks later.

    No shortage here in Idaho either :) You can get good prices on-line, just make sure you order enough to justify the shipping. Ammo has to ship via UPS ground (Fedex may also ship it, but UPS is the most common). Shipping for one box is generally ~$14, but add more boxes and the shipping charge generally only goes up by around ~$1 per additional box.

    Exact opposite at our walmarts, both of em. They always have plenty of CorBon, HydraShoks, stuff like that- and the cheap Winchstr wb, but they are out of Federal, UMC FMJs all the time. I went to one 5 days last week- they never had a box of either. I usually buy the Fed FMJ box of a hundred- but the last month or so, no such luck. Went to Academy Thurs, their 9mm shelf looked like they foorgot to order anything but Tul and HydraShoks.
