They also have a variety of 40sw, and higher priced 223's, no 38sp right now.

Sometimes, they have Remington UMC 38sp+ 100 round boxes for $39

but not today.



Target masters used to have the 357 Magtech for out the door sale (~$28

for 50 round boxes) but I haven't been there in a while. I guess you can find

better deals on-line.



Good hunt

Thank you for the help

What's .356 and .38 special goin for??

Anyone
Been a while since I've been on here, but good to seem some familiar faces!

408essj, I have 3 boxes of the Remington value packs 100 - 38 special +P . $39 + tax.

If you or Karl D wants them, PM me. you know I'm right near TM.

If you want the best deal on 357- Herter's from Cabelas is $23 when it's in stock. or try Underwood Ammo if you want Hot Loads that go BOOOOM!

Yep, so far that's been the best price I've seen on .357 mag as well. And they do have them in stock currently online at Cabelas. Brass has also been fine for reloading. Reloaded their .38 special and .357 mag brass with various mild to medium loads, with a few max ones, about 4 times already and the brass still looks good so far.

Walmart mountainview, plenty of hunting ammo. Saw fed 9mm, 556 and 762x51 on the cart. Display case was packed to the gills with hunting ammo, self defense loads and shotshells. There was a full cart of shotshells and misc rifle cartidges as of 1pm. Happy holidays folks. The fed 9mm bulk packs were 28 cents per round after taxes.

Try Reed's Indoor Range, they rent .22 guns and usually have these in stock.

I'm in my small hometown in Arizona, and went into Walmart just to look around. The Milpitas WM is among the most gun friendly Walmarts in the Bay area. They have zero guns.

My hometown Walmart has 4 or 5 different AR's, including a SIG and a Colt 6920, Bushy, Windham, and 1 or 2 others. They have a bunch of shotguns with breacher standoff devices on the muzzle, and a Remington SPS pre-threaded for a suppressor. And they have a Steyr SSG, lol.

Default Stock on Saturday Jan. 4, 2014

Decided to go out today and buy some ammo to refill my supply. So I thought that I'd share what I found with you all.

This is the ammo case at the Mountain View Walmart as of 11:15am this morning:


I haven't seen that case that full in over a year!

(If you're curious about prices, you can click on the image above and then from my Flickr stream view the large or original size of the photo to zoom in.)

One thing caught my eye though:


Way more than what I had budgeted for today. But even if I did have the money, I probably would have passed on it since it's really pricey @ 63.5˘ / round. But maybe one of you guys will be interested.

After Mountain View, I decided to check out Milpitas. Here's what their case looked like around 11:45am:











(Sorry for the multiple shots but it was the best way I could get close ups and minimize the reflection of the overhead lights).

And for your reference, here's what I paid for the ammo that I bought today from these establishments:







Hope all this helps at least one person out...

Crysknife1013, mucho props on the detailed TRs of the MV and Milly WMs. Can't believe prices have gone up to the levels they have at WM nowadays. Even the 100rd value packs of WWB .40S&W, once you factor in sales tax, aren't the cheapest around anymore.

I went in the opposite direction to the Tracy Walmart today (went to Bass Pro Shop for the first time today!!!!). NO 45 ACP or 9 mm (It was about 6:30 or so on Saturday night (1/4). A bunch of shotgun and other assorted rifle ammo.

Most of the ammo was very expensive. When I started shooting a year and a half ago, 45 ACP was $30/100 (Federal Bulk). Now, it's close to $47/$48 including tax for the Blazer!!!

Ugh.

Those Dillon presses are looking better and better!

Happy shooting and be safe!

MV has Plano 1512 double rifle case for $29.99

same as this
http://www.amazon.com/Plano-Pillared.../dp/B000P3YSLO

Picked up one
not bad for $30 rifle case to lug around the range

That price on the 7.62x51 is actually pretty good. You won't find much better anywhere. Miwall price at the weekend gun show was about 78 cents a round for Winchester white box.

Thanks for the pictures and updates. The reason the cases are so full now is because the prices aren't really outstanding. Still, it's really nice to be able to find ammo for decent prices, and based on Wal-Mart's standard operating procedures, we can expect (or at least hope) that they will start reducing prices soon to reflect the market.

Spoke with an associate in Milpitas and sadly he said that the person currently running sporting isnt too proactive with the firearm and ammo re-stocking and neither is the Store Manager. That really sucks.

The days of ammo hunting at Milly Walmart are a distant memory. Good while it lasted. Hopefully better days are ahead!
