Default Big Five Sig Ammo on Sale 200rnds/$55

Hey Guys, first time posting in this side of the forums, Hello! If im violating any rules please forgive me. Just wanted to give a heads up that Big Five has Sig 9mm ammo on sale 55bucks for 200, comes out to around .27 cents a round or around .30 cents a round after taxes if my math is correct. Thought this was a deal, or can you get ammo cheaper locally? Ie: Walmart, Local Gun Shop, etc. I am in the San Fernando Valley so tax is crazy high.

Big 5 is on the high side on ammo prices, even when they are on sale.

The Turner's Outdoorman store chain has better ammo prices than Big 5 store chain.
^There's one in the San Fernando Valley (Reseda).
~Currently, on sale Winchester 9x19mm 115 gr FMJ @ $10.98/50 rounds ($0.22/round).

I'm not sure it's worth the extra five cents per round, BUT all the Sig ammo I've used lately (2,000 rounds) has been impressive. Not just reliable and accurate, but really CLEAN.

Sometimes it's worth it to pay a little extra, in order to avoid the usual gunk that results from white box

Big 5 hasn't been the same since the ammo shortage, they used to be my go-to because they had the best prices. Whoever is doing their marketing now should get a clue and start discounting again.

I have some of the sig 10mm hollow points that I like, I wouldn't pay for their fmj though. Target 9mm from Walmart or Turner's sales.

Not to go too far off topic- but Big 5 seems to have lost their way. When Sports Authority went tits up, I expected Big 5 to quickly make a dominant move. Crickets...
