    So, in light of recent events, has anybody seen inflation of ammo prices in their area due to the Navy yard shooting?

    I just scored 3 x 100 boxes of Federal 115gr FMJ 9mm for $67.41 at Wal-Mart. That is the lowest ($0.2247/round) I have paid for 9mm FMJ all year.

    223/556 has definitely been hard on the wallet.

    Wow! That is a killer deal! Wish I was anywhere near a deal like that...

    The local gunshot is about 10 per cent higher than Cabela's bud lots of .223 and 5.56. They still wanted $17.99 for Pmags gen 2 which made me wish I woulda grabbed a couple more at the gun show for $10 a pop. Bought 2 E Lander mags at the local shop. $20.00 each, more than on line but no shipping, tracking,etc.

    The local WM has a limit of 3 box's of 50 rds and 1 box of value pack. They had some 9 mm in but I only bought 3 box's of .45 Tula for $19.97 each. They had more too.
    The had 2 box's of 100 .40 S&W.

    The sign just said "Limit 3 boxes". I suppose they could have limited me to just the one "value pack", but they had plenty of 50 round boxes for $14.47 each so it was not like I was buying all their 9mm Federal.

    Same here in Salem. I did find a guy at the South store interpret the rule as 3 per caliber so I scored some 3 boxes of 9mm, 3 tula 762 and 3 tula 223. It was almost like the olden days...Score!

    It would be difficult to break up as they are loose rounds in the box.

    Best,
