Just wondering....what is the average price for some .45 ammo at a local shop in Southern California?

Mainly Federal 230 grain ball ammo and winchester white box?

I picked up a couple of thousand rounds a couple of years back and its almost time to restock.

Prepare to be shocked. WM is probably gonna be the cheapest at $.35 p/rd, if you can find it in stock. If not, $.40+ seems to be the going rate.

I picked up some WWB 45s at walmart 100 value pack for around $33

Anywhere else you are looking at $20-25 for a box of 50.

I clicked on this thread because I wanted to know what APC ammo was. I think WWB is going for around $45/100 last time I checked. Maybe cheaper.

It seems like its too expensive to shoot 45 nowadays.

Ouch....just called Turners since they are close by. WWB are $28.99/ box. WoW!!!!

When I last got federal 230 grain ball it was about $12-13 / box!!!

Turners are always high, but that seems about right...

I like Gun-deals.com as it lets you know more about the ammo youre buying... brass/steel/nickle, powder and primmer types also.

basically the same info at times.

yes, that is correct.

I have about 1500 rounds of .45 and my gorgeous STI Lawman rarely makes it out nowadays because it is painful to feed the thing. I have this thing in my head that keeps reminding me that every time I shoot 1 magazine(8 rounds) , it is $3.20......i've been shooting my .22 and 9mm more and more.

ya I guess you can say that. I was thinking of taking out the 12 gauge more often then my little .45

I stocked up on 9mm for 20cents a round and I am quite glad I did so. Wish I had the foresight to get some .45 as well, but I don't have a .45 yet so I guess it's a moot point.

In preparation for 2/2011 Will the ammo be good if I store in a semi-air tight container with desiccant for 2 years? 5 years? 10years???

Was thinking of stock piling some. Such a hassle to go through paper work every time I need to buy ammo. Plus no more savings from online vendors. Arrhhh.....I really hate Kalifornia.

I picked up 250 rounds of Load-X (http://www.loadxammo.com/retailcat.pdf) 230 grain TMJ today for $18.50 per 50. They are local to me, but they ship all over.

I was bummed that they had no .38 Special, but they're going to call me when they make a batch.

Around $23-25 per box of 50. Plus tax - ouch !

No correction needed. CA. ammo retailers are going to pick up some good profits from people who used to buy large quantities of handgun ammo exclusively from out of state merchants by mail.
My prediction is many FFLs will start taking special orders for those that buy large quantities - but your guess is as good as mine as for pricing.
Time to get to know your local ammo supplier.

Big 5 has the practice ammo for around $23 a box of 50.

With this new ban in 2011, what's to stop me from going to Nevada or Arizona and buying my ammo, especially if I"m already going to be in the State for other reasons.

It may only cost 3.20$ but finding the ammo and replacing it is what's hard
Whenever I see federal 45 ammo I pick up a few boxes at a time

If this is non-Walmart prices, $20-25 a box of 50 is the going rate.

If you find some at Walmart, the WWB 100rd box is $33 and the federal 50rd box is $16

Nothing.
That's exactly what I'm going to be doing, and I'm sure a bunch of other people are going to be doing. This stupid bill may help or hurt the local economy. Kalifornia won't be getting any money from me tho.

I plan on driving to Nevada and filling SUV up with ammo as well :D.

Oh look.... stupid laws are creating yet another black market.
