My ammunition supplier has raised its prices $1/50 and will do so again on the 1st. I bought 8 cases with all the cash I had on hand. it's still the best deal I can find, including Wal-Mart where' it's $28.87+ +Tax for the 100rd boxes. These are packed in foam containers.

I won't be able to do them at this price again. :(

$155/case (500rds) I'm available for pick-up around the 10/405 interchange of WLA.

I'll be in Taft this weekend, as well.

Walmart price: $28.87 + 7.75% tax ($2.24)= $31.11 / 100 = .31 cents per rnd
Your offer: $155.00 / 500 = .31 cents per rnd

Am I missing something?

Tax in our neck of the woods is 8.25% so you're off by a quarter of a cent per bullet.

Didn't Walmart prices go up?

Yeah, there are no WalMarts that stock WWB within 40 miles of me. The few times I've tried they've been out of stock or I've gotten, "Oh yes, we have plenty." Show up and it's 10 boxes... I buy multiple cases. WalMart is impossible to beat in price for new manufacture ammunition. That I can match it, in quantity, is a feat. Every time my supplier has raised prices, Wally has, as well... usually by the same amount, so I'd suggest you can anticipate a $2-4 increase from WalMart.

I guess you're implying that CG offers should be mad crazy deals? I'm not doing this for my benefit. I pay $5 less than I sell it for. In the end, I come out even or even behind, by the time I factor in gas and time. It's for convenience and to be nice.

If you're lucky enough to have a WalMart that stocks ammunition, by all means use it - I highly encourage it.

However, most aren't as fortunate. Turner's is up to $19/box for WWB, online retailers like Midway are $230+/case + shipping. Gun show prices of new stuff still outpace what I'm offering by $1-2/box. The only thing that comes close are reloads.

I suppose I should stop since people apparently are happy with their current means of ammunition supply.

Keep up the good work UCLA many of us really appreciate it. I wish I was closer to you to pick up a box.:(

Again, supply and demand. Not all Wal-Marts carry ammo. UCLAPLINKER is trying to be helpful, but...there are some that thinks you're trying to make a buck.

The Wal-Mart by me does not do ammo, I'd buy some from you but am here in Nor-Cal.

Thanks for trying to help.

Thanks... I don't mean to be defensive, but I feel weird from the reactions. I'm really not doing this for money. There is no economic justification here.

I get to meet Calgunners. :)

For me its really hard to find good quality ammo at a good price. I jumped at buying a few cases of WWB at that price.

Uclaplinker is a good, trustworthy guy and I'm appreciative that he is doing this for us. Gas isn't cheap and working out logistics is a pain in the ***. I hope he does make a few bucks for those reasons alone.

I like the ammo and I like the price, therefore I will buy has much as I can.

Thanks again Will,

Cesar

Group hug?

It's not that, I get snippy when my integrity is questioned. It's all good... This thread has turned to drama. :D

Unfortunately, at that price, never... If you need some, PM me and I'll see what I can do.

I'm guessing it's now $160-165.
