    UMC at LGS for $319. All of their UMC stock, which wasn't much, sold within the hour I was in the store.

    Okay.

    Price isn't terribly bad. Not great, but not too terrible.

    I paid $147 for 500 rounds of Fiocchi 9mm the other day, shipped, from Midway...and I almost didn't because it's a little expensive...but in this market I think less than $0.30 per round total cost for 9mm brass case is acceptable.

    Not a bad price at all. I believe that's considered "pre-panic prices" where I live. Kudos, I think you did well.

    The Walmart stores in this area are beginning to have 9mm on a regular bases and their prices aren't grossly inflated. However, they all have a 3 box limit (which I'm fine with, btw) so no purchasing by the case there.

    Pre panic (and currently) Walmart has 9mm 115gr FMJ for about $220-$240 per 1,000

    My Walmart (all in WNC, I'm guessing) impose a fairly strict 3 box limit per household.
    I've seen the clerk ask a couple for a drivers license to verify the wife did not have the same address as the husband who just bought his 3 boxes.
    I will say that went over like a lead balloon, but it's the times I suppose.

    I do on occasion swing by a Walmart after work and buy a box or two for plinking. I do this maybe once every couple of weeks.
    I do remember at one point I simply couldn't find 9mm anywhere at a price I was willing to pay and back to the loading bench I went. Thankfully I have enough components to last a good long time. I just don't like reloading like I once did.

    However, the few times I did purchase 9mm from Walmart, it was Federal Champion at $14/50. Not the best but acceptable.

    At some places, right now, they are lower than that.

    As I just posted recently.

    I'm sure people said the same thing during the 08 panic too. This too shall pass.

    I agree that sub $0.35/round seems to be decent these days. I can remember paying around $200 or so for a case from a couple of different places, so I wouldn't say we are back to pre-panic prices yet.

    That super cheap ammo though, that is Wolf/Tula? Isn't UMC brass instead of steel?
