Finally found a Wal-mart with .45ACP IN STOCK! I was soooo happy cuz I've been looking for months.

Remington UMC .45ACP...$19.something per 50 box.
Hmmmmm, didn't they used to be like $16/box?
I just got a case from the grand opening of Turners for $16ish.

So, did Wal-mart raise their .45 prices?
Turners has $19something this week on sale. Never thought they'd meet Wal-mart prices.

Not sure what the Rem stuff used to go for. Nowadays the cheapest 45acp at WM is Fed 50rd boxes for $15.97 and Win 100rd boxes for $32.97.

I only buy Federal from WM. Still $9something for 9mm and $15ish for 45. 45acp is definately hard to find but when I find it I make sure I buy at least 2 boxes for my next range session.

Same prices I have seen for a while now. The usual 50rd boxes are way too expensive other than the Federal

I bought 6 boxes Rem UMC .45x250 round packs at wallyworld a few weeks ago.

You have to go early before they're gone.

that's around $16.50 per 50 rounds.

Oh hell. Last Sunday night I was walking around the Oceanside WalMart. Their ammo case was FULL of Federal 9mm, .40, and 45acp (over 20 boxes), not to mention scads of various other calibers. The 45 was 15.97 per box, the same price I paid at Lodi WalMart a few weeks ago. The crap isn't gold people.

They raised prices on some of their .22 bricks, but not on their .45 that I'm aware of. Unfortunately my 2 local Wally World's have been out of .45 since forever.

I just checked the Walmart in Citrus Heights and was told that the local gun shop manager comes in every Tuesday morning and purchases all of their .45 as it is stocked on the shelf. I missed the delivery today by two hours. I'll have to get there earlier next week if I'm going to get any of their bulk packs.

And gasoline used to be $2/gallon before the last big price jacking. Now it's $3 and never will go down again. Same thing with ammo. Places like Midway now magically have ammo in stock at newly jacked up prices. get used to it.

I've never seen any .45 at any of my local Walmarts. Seen some 9mm and usually .40 but never any .45. Funny, the last 2 gun stores I went to wanted $26+ for a box of 50.

It was only a couple of years ago they were selling 100-round boxes of Winchester .45ACP for $19.97 plus tax.

Walmart is raising prices on everything....


Wal-Mart Quietly Raises Prices

By JONATHAN BERR (http://www.dailyfinance.com/writers/jonathan-berr/) Posted 11:30 AM 08/10/10

Wal-Mart Stores (WMT (http://www.dailyfinance.com/quotes/wal-mart-stores-inc/wmt/nys)), which for years has touted its prowess at lowering prices, has been doing the opposite as it tries to bolster its bottom line amid stagnating sales.

A JPMorgan Chase (JPM (http://www.dailyfinance.com/quotes/jpmorgan-chase-and-co/jpm/nys)) study of a Walmart Supercenter in Virginia found that the world's largest retailer has raised prices by nearly 6% on average over the past six weeks, according to the New York Post. (http://www.nypost.com/p/news/business/jpmorgan_wal_mart_rollback_plan_UolYEpdKtwxFJ3yVvt QJSJ?CMP=OTC-rss&FEEDNAME=) Reuters says it was (http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE6791MH20100810?type=domesticNews)the biggest (http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE6791MH20100810?type=domesticNews)sequential increase since JPMorgan started the study in January 2009.

Some Prices Hiked Over 60%

Some of the price hikes were considerably larger. For instance, the price of a 32-ounce bottle of Windex household cleaner jumped 50%, a 12-ounce box of Quaker Oats instant grits climbed 65% and a 50-ounce container of Tide detergent rose by more than 50%. A spokesperson for the Bentonville, Ark., company could not immediately be reached for comment.

The results of the price-hike study aren't entirely surprising. Shares of Wal-Mart, which rose at the height of the recent recession, are down more than 2% this year amid lackluster performance at its U.S. stores, where same-store sales fell 1.1% during the 13 weeks ended April 30. When Wal-Mart announced a revamping of the management team overseeing these stores, including the departures of CEO and President of Wal-Mart U.S. Eduardo Castro-Wright and Chief Merchandising Officer John Fleming, current Wal-Mart U.S. CEO Bill Simon bluntly said (http://investors.walmartstores.com/phoenix.zhtml?c=112761&p=irol-newsArticle&ID=1443998&highlight=), "our mandate is clear: increase customer traffic, make sure our products are relevant to our customer and never give an inch on price leadership."

Unfortunately for Wal-Mart, keeping prices low is tough with less store traffic. To make matters worse, rivals appear to be doing better. Target (TGT (http://www.dailyfinance.com/quotes/target-corporation/tgt/nys)) reported a 2% gain in July same-store sales (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/target-july-same-store-sales-rise-2-2010-08-05-81400), which are a key metric for retail investors. Kohl's (KSS (http://www.dailyfinance.com/quotes/kohl-s-corporation/kss/nys)) reported a 4.1% gain. (http://www.marketwatch.com/story/kohls-same-store-sales-in-july-rise-ups-forecast-2010-08-05) Wal-Mart stopped releasing monthly same-store sales figures for its units last year, so making an apples-to-apples comparison (http://blogs.wsj.com/economics/2009/05/07/wal-mart-to-stop-publishing-monthly-sales/) is difficult.

Narrowing Its Lead in the Low-Price Wars

Wal-Mart is also under assault in the grocery aisle -- one of the areas it has aggressively expanded over the last few years. As the Post notes, "Although Walmart still has lower prices on key groceries and staples compared to mainstream supermarkets, its lead is narrowing -- to 10.4% last month from 16% in June." The grocery business is noted for its low margins and fierce competition. Even niche players like Whole Foods Market (WFMI (http://www.dailyfinance.com/quotes/whole-foods-market-inc/wfmi/nas)) cut prices by 0.7% in July, the paper says.

Theoretically, this should be Wal-Mart's moment to shine (http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSN2726037520100727). U.S. consumer confidence in July was at its lowest point since February. People still want low prices. Unfortunately for Wal-Mart, they just would rather shop at other stores.
