    I just picked up a couple of boxes of UMC green box .45 ACP 230 grain at Dick's Sporting Goods at Washington Square a while ago. They had more .45 than I have seen in the last 6 months. It cost $18.98 a box which is cheaper than the 2 boxes I was lucky enough to get at Bi-Mart last week for $23.97 each.

    Dick's also had the yellow box .45 UMC 250 pack for $119, which is wayyyyy expensive. I am curious why the bulk pack is more expensive that buying 5 regular boxes.........

    They had plenty of other calibers available. Lots of .223 including JHP, 40 S&W, 9mm, .38 special and about any other pistol/rifle caliber you could want.

    I don't know, but I saw the same thing at bi-mart about the bulk UMC costing more for the same round count than the smaller count UMC of .223 even without sale prices.
    The cost of the 200 count was $90
    200 rounds from the 20 count came up to $80
    Buying in bulk costs more now? Go figure. Now if Costco sold ammo I'd be really happy. :)

    The 9mm ammo was that way too when I was in there a few days ago. I thought it was quite odd, got 5, 50rd boxes and saved some $.

    The new Dicks at Delta Park had a BUNCH of the green boxes locked up behind the counter when I was there Sun (Grand opening day). Didn't pay much attention to the prices other than to check the other stuff. They're quite proud of their merchandise I see. I'll probably buy from them when I can't get it anywhere else.

    when it was ordered or purchased. Prices were (and still are) all over the place. A few days one way or the other could make a big difference in what it sells for, kind of like gas.

    Wal Mart. .45 Auto Winchester White Box, 100 rnds, $34. Cheapest I've seen it for a while.
    9mm, Remington, $9 a box of 50.
    Why go to gun shows when you have Wal Mart.

    Dicks = Overpriced, Less Selection.. I'll pass on Dicks.. Good news is, the originally founders of G.I. Joes is planning a great comeback and they are talking about opening a store modelled after their original store they opened years back. This means a better selection of guns, ammo, hunting, hiking and camping gear. I cannot wait until they come back. I utterly hate Dick's!

    There was a pretty interesting article in last Sunday's Oregonian about GI Joe's opening back up.

    It will be interesting to see if they have the buying power as a new startup (even if they are an old name) to compete price wise with Dick's, Fisherman's, Wally World, and BiMart.
