Walmart ammo.... WTF

Weird. In the past 6 months, there's only been one time when I couldn't get ammo. I could go buy 1000 rounds of 9mm if I really wanted to. I have no need to buy 5.56/.223 if that's what you're looking for though so idk the situation on that.

I hope that's the case, I know the one in new tampa is one box per customer.

Damn, must be nice. Down here in FL it's almost impossible. My local walmart (citrus park) is even out of 12ga and 410.

There's a section of US19 in St. Pete where there are 2 walmarts within 5 miles of each other. One of them restricts to 1 box; the other restricts from 3-5 boxes. Its really stupid, but ohh well.

I'm just anxious to shoot the new rifle and know 60rds isn't going to be enough

Have you ever tried to call in before actually going in? Will they actually tell you if they have anything in stock? I'm sick of wasting time walking back to the sporting depo to find absolutely nothing.

You've got another thing coming to you if you trust the intelligence and workrate of walmart employees to get that information.

Good, I'm tired of getting to the sporting goods department to find out some bastard bought out the store.

One 100 round box of Winchester White Box is enough for my weekly shootring range time.

our walmart has had a bunch of 30-06 in stock every time I've been in. Makes me want an M1 even more.

I have seen Remington 30-06 a couple times. Most of the other rifle rounds are wiped though.

I'm glad I stocked up with two extra boxes of my 300WSM last year. Havent seen that anywhere either...

Our Walmart has a few of the less common hunting calibers. 300WSM, 30-06, 270. Oddly enough, I think I even see 6.8 more often than not.

How about a site or app for searching for ammo in general?

walmart app is not accurate for me. It says product is in but the shelves tell a different story.
