They get deliveries in the evenings, and stock the shelves in the early morning. Later in the evening is the best time, before they put it on the shelf.

Do you just ask them if tey got any in? How early is early. If I roll in there at 5:30 will it be on the shelf? Actually not sure if they are even open then.

I usually call after 7pm. I have been there as late 9am and the ammo is still sitting in a cart behind the counter.

Default I've gotten exhausted looking..

(I thought I had subscribed to this thread - didn't work..what the heck?..I would have missed out)

I've been calling at night for the one that is open 24hrs - If I remember it's Aero. I think shawline is not 24hrs.

Here is what I learned:

call around 830pm to Aero; their shipment I think come around 9-10. So far they are saying even their warehouses are out. I had called to Shawline, the guy said, "um, yeah we got 6 boxes left"..I said, "OK be there in 15 minutes"...I get there, "um, yeah we just sold out..literally 1 minute ago we sold the last three." I thing the guy was BSing me though. The point is..this is getting tiring.

imagine how many other people are calling and asking for the same thing with only 6 boxes in stock. you should know now these days don't last (I don't even want to say long) because stuff is nearly off the shelf the moment they get in.

Random walmart, but went the National City one, off highland?

Went fishing, so stopped there to get tackle stuff and checked ammo since it was in the same area.

They had all common handgun calibers minus .45. I was amazed by the quantity, guess National City residents don't buy often.
Had lots of .22

Aero Dr just stocked a bunch of Winchester 9mm 115gr value packs and Federal 9mm 115gr value packs. There was other stuff in the cart but I forgot to go back and check to see what it was.

I still went and I got some .40 SW (hand-gun)...By the way, does anyone know if these are scarce? They have about 5 boxes left (100 rds). And they have about 3 boxes of 9mm (I think 100rds box). So to make my question simpe; Are .40 sw 165 grain scarce?

Thanks for the heads up, I picked up the last two. Nothing left but .40, .380, 12, 20, 410 gauge, 22-270, 243, and some other unpopular calibers...

@MYK, anytime, also thanks @anderman for good scouting. I ended up getting .40 sm. By the way, is .40 a scare and unpopular caliber?

I was there about 8am buying a fishing license. Shelf looked the same except for the two boxes of bulk .223 (that's what I bought) and some 9mm on the very bottom shelf and a few more on the third shelf.

So you're the guy buying out all the ammo at my local walmart... I guess I'll have to get up a lot earlier in the AM to beat you to the shelves!

Nope, not me. This is my first time buying ammo at a store front in over a year and it was my first time going into this particular walmart. It was the closest one to Lake Murray. Just happened to need a fishing license and tackle. I didn't see the ammo case at first, but I asked the cashier and she pointed it out to me. Since it was close by I went to take a look. It was weird becuse the ammo case is not in the sporting goods section. It's closer to the electronics at the top of the escalator.

Either way, they had 9mm in this morning around 8am.
