    I saw some at Walmart yesterday. It's made in Italy (not Russia), and I've heard it's under contract with Fiocchi, so you're basically buying Fiocchi ammunition under a budget label at a budget price.

    I saw .45ACP and .223, but other calibers are available and on the way. Prices for the .45ACP were $20 for a box of 50 rounds (kind of average), and the .223 was $17 for a box of 50 rounds (excellent value). For brass cased reloadable .223, that's less than 35 cents/round. And predictably, there is already some for sale in the classifieds here with a 50-100% markup.

    Just an FYI for people still on the hunt for cheap ammunition: swing by your local Walmart. This stuff just started coming in within the last 2 days, and it's a brand new product.

    Walmart is getting stuff on their trucks regularly now.

    Their distribution centers were caught flat footed (like everybody else) after the panic initially struck, but now manufacturers have dramatically increased output to feed demand. And in this case, Tulammo even launched a new line of ammo to target a different set of customers from their typical steel-cased stuff.

    My Walmart had boxes of Federal .223 as well. And remember, Walmart is one of the few retailers that hasn't jacked up their prices a lot. You can't say that about places like Fisherman's, Wholesale Sports or local gun stores.

    Walmart has been receiving shipments of ammunition, while other stores, like Fred Meyer have not.

    That is great.

    I will probably pass on the 45 for other similar priced options, but I'll jump on the 223 if I find any.

    Cool. I'm fine with the cheapest .223 I can find. My Saiga doesn't care what it eats. I've actually been disappointed that Russian steel-cased loads are nowhere to be found! I've had great luck with Wolf Military Classic .223.

    Looks like I know where I'm going after work tomorrow. Thanks for the heads up, I would've been content with the steel cased stuff!

    As of 7am this morning, they still had a butt load of .40 TulAmmo Brass Maxx. There was no 9mm, 45acp or 223 by any other brands.

    I gather a new Wal-Mart is being built at the old GI Joe's site in Oak Grove.
