    Im not sure if anyone has posted anything about this but here goes.. I have read a lot of threads lately about ammo prices and avalability. I have seen people post about Wal-Mart having great prices, myself included. I see a lot of people reply to that with "my Wal-Mart is always out" or " there is only a few boxes on the shelf" I have been buying CCI Blazer Brass in 9mm and 45 from Wal-Mart for the last year or so because of the price and how great it shoots. Well just to let people know, Wal-Mart has cases of ammo in the back room. If you ask them to go look in there "gun room" or "ammo room" in the back to see if there is more of the ammo you are looking for. Tonight I picked up 2 cases of Blazer Brass 45acp (2000 rounds) for $9.47 per box of 50 (40 boxes total) I also picked up a case of 40 S&W for $7.47 per 50

    The Wal-Marts around me have had the same prices for the last year on Blazer Brass ammo even with WWB and Rem. increasing there prices 2 or 3 times. Just this last week they finally went up a buck on the 9mm 50 round box so its a few cents more now then the .40 S&W. Price in my area (South Houston/ Sugar Land) has been 9mm=$6.76 per 50 .40=$7.47 per 50 .45=$9.47 per 50, like I said all the Blazer has stayed the same price except the 9mm which is now $7.76 per 50. If you call them they should be able to scan one of the boxes and tell you how many they have in house not just sitting on the shelf.

    I hope this helps someone else get some good ammo for a good price.

    I was talking to a sportgood's guy about cases and he told me that they could order what ever I wanted.

    9.47 for a box of 50 is a good deal. I am paying 11.97 for 50 of the BB 45acp

    Our local Wal-Marts in Ohio are packed with ammo and the prices are usually better than then local Gander Mountain but not always. I don't see them running out anytime soon (unless my husband and I buy them out of ammo...haha).

    Gander Mtn price matches within fifty miles of their store here. I keep track of WalMarts price and if I need ammo and Walmart is not handy and Gander is I ask them to match it, and they do.

    nalioth ... I seem to have missed your point?

    I live in Rosenberg and work in Stafford and most of my family lives in Alief and I do a lot of my side business all over the South part of town from Katy to Sharpstown to Copperfield to Pearland even out in Missouri city and everywhere in between. So while I’m out driving around I stop in a Wal-Mart or 2 or 10 along the way.

    the price varies from WalMart to WalMart, at least in Central Texas. when you can find it in the Austin city limts, it is generally $7.57 for a box of .40 CCI Blazer Brass and $9.47 for a box of .45 CCI Blazer Brass.

    outside of the city limits i have visited two WalMart stores (Hutto and Bastrop) and found the prices to be about $1.50 higher per box, of either .40 or .45. and they usually only have 8 boxes of each.

    today i got 43 boxes of .40 ammo in Austin, just happened to be lucky! in the past week or two i have purchased about 5000 rounds of .40 and about 1500 rounds of .45. seems the .45 is harder to find.

    Was it what they had out on the shelf or did you ask them to go check in the back?

    I was explaining this same thing to my buddy this morning and he said the Wal-Mart by him did not have any .45. I called this evening and they said there was nothing on the shelf for .45acp just like he said. I asked them to scan the tag to see how many it said they had in stock and the guy said "well Ill be the computer says we have 37 boxes" he told me to hang on and a few minutes later he came back and told me he found 33 of the 37 the computer showed in the back room ;)

    Its all gone now since I told my friend about it :p

    Well, I don't buy pistol ammo too often, rather roll my own. But, I have noticed that 3" 12 gauge steel #3 Winchester Hi Velocity 1550 fps loads are 5 bucks cheaper than Academy wants for the same load. Screw Academy, LOL. I've been stocking up for the coming duck season. I might check out the price on a box of .380. I hardly ever set up to load .380, hardly ever shoot the thing. I like to buy a box now and then if only to get the brass. I don't have a lot of .380 brass.

    The secret is out. I bought a ton of Blazer brass at Wal Mart after the price Winchester white box got jacked up there. It's funny how Wal Marts in close proximity will have a difference of 2 dollars or so for the same stuff.

    Are those prices only for when buying a case? Here in Wyoming at Walmart, Blaser Brass is $9.95 for 50 rounds of .40. If I could get it for $7.47 like you, I would buy a case right now.

    Where are your Wal-Marts with the Blazer Brass? I live in Chattanooga, and have been to three Wal-Marts in the area, and all they've got is WWB for, I think, $24.00/100.

    It won't help you much, unfortunately, but the Wal-Marts I frequent in Phoenix metro all have Blazer Brass, for about 20% less than "white box." So it is at least out there.

    Is "Blazer Brass" the throw away stuff?

    No, the aluminum is. The brass is, well, brass, conventionally primed and should be as reloadable as any other brass. The aluminum (identified by being called just plain Blazer - as opposed the brass which specifies that it is brass - in a black box with red or silver lettering, I don't recall which) is indeed nonreloadable.

    Use the case trick on shotgun shells all the time, much easier to carry one big box than ten little ones. Just ask them to go check in teh back.

    Just got back from Wmart. had to call 3 stores to find the Blaser Brass. But at $7.67 a box, it seemed cheap enough. I bought the last 7 boxes they had.

    That's some good prices there. I might have to hit Wally World this weekend so I can get some brass and enjoy using it before I start working on it in the reloading cycle. I do need more 40. Thanks for the tip, but holiday weekends being what they are, and Wal Mart what it is, I'm not sure I can handle that many wifebeater t-shirts all at once.:neener:

    They always have some on the shelf here, I don't see any point to buying a case when there is no discount and it's just ammo I use for plinking anyways. Usually before I go to the range I'll pick up a couple 100rd value packs of 9mm.

    I did notice the 100rd value packs of .45acp being quite expensive now. :what: I'm sure that will change though, as soon as they see no one buying it at that price.

    The 9mm price is about the same as always, maybe a dollar more than the last time I bought some. I think I bought some for around $10 something a year ago and I think I saw the price at $11.88 this time. It was not too long ago the 9mm value packs were closer to $9 apiece.
