    Nice find. Today I found some Federal 9mm for $18, two per customer.

    Most other places that sell 9mm are about $4-5 dollars higher then at my local Bi-Mart.

    Yeah I've seen those but all my WM's have a one box per day limit, so not really worth it to me.

    IME you can find better deals online.

    My buddy lines in town and checks often. He's scored several times on those bricks.

    I've been in my walmart a few times in recently and seen Automatch or Winchester Power Point bricks. I'm pretty well stocked on .22lr, I've been hoping to snag some 12 or 20 ga cheap game loads and keep striking out.

    i went back this morning. Another gentleman and I bought 3 boxes each and there were 4 other boxes left. i don't think anyone is actively hunting for ammo in Walmart in our area. Like me, they probably got used to empty shelves. only other ammo is shotgun, a couple of boxes of 30-06 and another hunting caliber.
