    I just bought 7.62 x 39 (Wolf HPs) from Copes distributing for 33 cents a pop, delivered. This caliber weathered the storm better than most.. something to consider when buying your next rifle or PDW

    Thanks man hopefully we are at the end of this bs. If these fn dirtbag resellers would just leave what they don't need on the shelves woulda been over a while ago. They claim its American free market. I disagree

    BI-Mart Prices.....every week for the last month or so:

    .40 S&W - 250rd Remington UMC - $80
    Primers $3.49 per 100

    Every single time I've been to Bi-Mart in the last month they've had .45 ACP just sitting on the shelf.
    Everyday. 4-5 boxes .45 ACP 100rd WWB, I don't have a .45 so I never checked the price. I think it's about $48-$50

    5.56 - 1000rd Federal - $399.99
    .223 - 200rd Remington - $80
    .45 - 250rd Bulk Packs -??

    CCI Stingers (50) at Bi-Mart for $5.99 each (.12 per round?, ouch!)

    No problem, I should have made this list a months ago. Now if we can all just steer all of these new gun owners to this list, then we can slow or eliminate the "over-priced" ammo market in the classified section.

    I am sure that there are a number of gun owners out there that was caught unprepared, I know that they have learned their lesson (I know several of them personally).

    As I mentioned to them before, they do not need to buy all of the store's in stock ammo in one visit, all you have to do is, when you visit a store, pick-up a box or two of ammo, in a year's time you would be amazed how much a person can accumulate.

    Midway charges way too much to ship ammo. Even more than Cheaper Than Dirt and Natchez.

    Only one cure for this. DON'T BUY FROM THEM!

    As I've stated before, if I run out of ammo or components for my "fun shooting", I'll buy a slingshot before I buy from one of the Scalper/Profiteer/Reseller/Opportunists that have been stripping the shelves. Let them choke on their speculative purchases.

    Copes has a $9.95 flat rate shipping no matter how much ammo. No ORMD. Get on their e-mail list

    Thanks, I have a Cabela's card for $5 shipping. Gander Mountain is free shipping over $50 but there is a $9 per order ammo surcharge. Palmetto State Armory is another good one with only $7 shipping.

    With Cabela's, Sportsman's Warehouse, Bass Pro Shops and probably others, you can order online and shipped it to the store for FREE.

    But Cabelas is an odyssey. You must make 4 + trips just to walk the store. Plus they actually have ammo and guns, guns, guns. They even had Nano mags. Reloading stuff? Hardly any
