Highway robbery! Cheaper Than Dirt had 500 round bricks for the bargain price of only $89.95 the other day.
The Walmart near had six boxes of .22lr two weeks ago (bought 3, could have bought all 6). It was Federal 325-round boxes and not copper jacketed (not sure why it wasn't the normal 550-rounders they usually carry). It was just over $15/box with taxes. The 550-rounders, when they get them, are just over $20/box with tax. They haven't jacked their prices, yet.
They have boxes of .22-250, .22short, .22winmag, .25-06, .300 winmag, .300wsm, 7mm and 6mm stuff. There's no handgun ammo at all. All the centerfire stuff is over $1/round. They don't seem to be selling this stuff very fast, as it's always on the shelf.
Maybe it's time to invest in a new caliber.
