    18 months ago I was buying Blazer Brass for $8.97 a box(50 9mm) Today I went there and they had some brand I'd never heard of for $16.97!!! That's just crazy.

    That brand is actually okay to shoot, but not for that price. My "guy" at Walmart told me that they cannot get their hands on anything in pistol calibers. He told me that to fill the gaps, Walmart is buying any ammo they can get. I think you'll find that that particular ammo will sit on the shelf, for a long long time. They've had the same 40ish boxes at the Bellingham store for 3 weeks, the Mt. Vernon Super-Walmart has the same problem.

    On the other hand, every now and then I do find Remington UMC 1000 boxes at the Bellingham store. 9mm goes for 51 for 250, 40 goes for 72 and 45 goes for 85. The UMC seems to be pretty good ammo, for plinking or range stuff.

    You'll probably be looking at $10-12 a box for WWB once Walmart can get it. The WWB VP was$21 for 9mm and $32 for for 45.

    Yeah, I saw that "RWS" stuff an passed on it. Ben's in Renton has Blazer Brass and PMC 9mm at $13.99 a box.

    I fear WWB days are over. Only WWB I've seen lately is .357Sig

    Fear not, Boss, I have been seeing it around. It's expensive where I have seen it. But it's still around. I saw a WWB VP 100 round box, 9mm for 37 dollars recently. They're taking advantage of the recent shortage.

    Walmarts in Bremerton and Poulsbo only have rifle ammo now. Guess it's time to buy online.

    My only complaint about WWB is it's dirty! I reload and rarely shoot WWB although I have a case+ left. I really notice the difference from reloads and WWB.

    I liked WWB because it was so cheap, i'd pick up the brass and then reload my own. I was just reading a blog about ammo prices, and the author postulated that it will take up to 5 years for the price of ammo to go down.

    Same here, three weeks back I bought 4 50 ct WWB at 11.97. Went back to the same walmart only a week later and they had that RSW brand at over $16 for 50. I keep walking.

    If memory serves the RSW stuff is steel lined also. It is total junk for indoor shooters.

    Picked up 6boxes of the Federal Bulk .22lr at the Covington Walmartthis past weekend. $11-something for 375 rounds.

    They have it hidden under the counter, not visible in the case.

    The only thing I have been picking up lately are 100 shell 12 ga packs and the Winchester 333 .22 packs (my Ruger loves them).

    Everything else is crazy... Makes me sad to even look at it.

    Was this anytime recently?
    Cause last I went there 1.5-2 weeks ago they had a sign that said max 2 box limit per customer...unless you went more than once to get dem 6 boxes.

    Hmm, I could be wrong, maybe it is the 6 box limit you speak of, in effect now...

    I've had some bad experience with the crap lady and "supervisor" and trying to buy some damn ammo. I don't shop at renton walmart for that reason, unless they got cheap ammo (which they don't).

    Iwent to Wally yesterday and bough 50 rd. boxes for just under 10 bucks a box--it was Federal ammo. Winchester 100 rd. is 23 bucks now.

    Yea, 9mm. It was the Wally in Lynnwood that sits on HWY 99.
