I just went to Walmart and got 200 rounds of the 9MM WWB. The price went up to around 14.50 a box from 12.80 something. :(

They had a 250 round box of the UMC for about 39.00. Anyone ever use that stuff? How does it compare to WWB? The UMC is marginally cheaper to use.

I've used a few hundred rounds of the UMC 9mm and liked it better than the WWB. Seemed to have a little less recoil.

It must have just gone up this week. I bought boxes before last Saturday's shoot and it was still $12.88.

The good news is energy and lead prices have started to come down. The bad news, its going to be a while before the savings work their way through the distribution chain.

It looks like I'll be buying 9mm ammo from Dicks Sporting Giids for a while, unless they go up too. If you watch for their sales, you can catch Remington 9mm (green box) for $5.98 per box of 50, if you buy 10 boxes at a time. The 10 boxes isn't a problem for me, since my wife and I both shoot 9mm. I also shoot about 450-500 rounds a month.

Adam5, I wish I had known that before buying ammo for the SMG last time. :evil:

That gun eats money.

I truly cannot afford to fire a full auto in a rifle caliber.

I was seeing wolf .223 for 6.99/20 at Bullseye last weekend.

I'm making an adventure outdoors run this afternoon. God I hope it's not that much there too.

Are there really no inexpensive hobbies? :(

It was sooooooo much cheaper when Uncle Sam was buying my ammo...

MP, I feel your pain and I don't shoot at much in a month as you do in an afternoon.

Thanks again for letting me play with it.

THAT WAS A FUN GUN!!!
:flame:

Got back from Adventure Outdoors. Yup, ammo has gone up again.

Wolf .223 3.99$
Wolf 7.62x39 4.49$
CCI Blazer 9mm - 6.99
Master .45 FMJ 12.99 :x

Looks like a buck increase across the board. 2$ on .45 grrrrr.

I'm getting close to rolling my own. .45 kills me and that's my favorite to shoot!

My roommate and I noticed the same thing when we went by walmart last night. Prices had shot up. It's probably cheaper. Now I just need to find a decent supply of cheap .38 Spc and .357 Mag for shiny new revolver to practice with.

+1 on reloading. I'm going to have to start myself.

Not long ago I could get 1000 rounds of Golden Tiger 7.62x39 for around $70.
I'd be lucky to get 500 for that now.
With all the cals I have, it would be best just to invest in the gear and make my own.

The only cheap ammo out there is 7.62x54R light ball with 440 round sealed tin of military surplus for about $39 not including shipping.

Another good deal is 8mm.

I'm seeing 20/1.99$ in the SOG catalog. 760/70$

Too bad I don't have a Mauser... might be a good reason to pick one up though :wink:

That's a sign of a firearms addiction...

When you have to buy a firearm for the ammo you just picked up because it was extremely cheap.

Yeah this blows, horribly.

Thankfully I bought 400 rounds of 9MM last week so I wasn't affected by the raise in prices. I've noticed that sportsmanguide.com didn't seem to raise prices that much though.

At the Eastman's this weekend I overheard one of the GeorgiaArms guys saying something about the price of lead going up.

Times like these are when I'm glad I strive to at a minimum 500 rounds per gun and preferrebly 1000 rounds per gun. Unfortunately, I don't always have enough money for that especially with .308 and .357 Magnum. Must reload, must reload.

I've never shopped at Dick's, 6/50 is a good price for 9MM though, might have to check that out. As far as .38 Spl goes I noticed that Adventure Outdoors had some good prices on .38 Spl in 148 and 158 grain loadings, IIRC $8/50.

Bass pro shops is selling 9MM WWB for 13/100. That's cheaper than wally world. Does Dick's even list ammo on its website?

N/M Sportsmans did go up, maybe not as much on certain things but Wolf .45 ACP is way more expensive than what it was 2 weeks ago, crap should have gotten another spam can or 5 of that stuff

22

I can't afford to shoot a lot of centerfire ammo anymore :( the stuff is just out of my budget. I shoot rimfire ammo to keep the skill level up. I can buy 1000 rounds of 22 for the price of 100 38's.
