    Average price for 9mm Ammo?

    Hey all,

    So I will be getting my first handgun here in a week or two, and I wondering what you guys pay on average for 9mm ammunition? I'm talking about target practice, not rounds you would carry with.

    One of my best friends brought his Sig p6 over with a few 50-round boxes of Fiocchi for about $18 a box, is this typical?

    Thanks for all the help.

    Bob

    If all of the planets are in alignment and the wind is blowing in the right direction, Wal-Mart sells 100 rounds of WWB (Winchester "White Box") 9mm for $20.00. Of course the problem is, as I am sure you already know, actually finding a Wal-Mart that has any of this stuff on the shelf!

    Good luck and welcome to the forum!

    HAHA, if you can find the stuff, last box I bought was bout 2 months ago, I happened to get there when the shipment got there 18.95 for a 50rnd box of PMC JHP. I bought 5 boxes out of the 100 boxes that showed, to leave some for my fellow shooters and brothers in arms. I have a little respect to not take ALL the ammo, unlike some other people who seem to have an unlimited check book.

    yeah that must be nice for them to go in and drop $500 just so THEY can make sure THEY have enough to tide THEMSELVES over but screw everyone else.


    Anywho to stay on topic. Walmart when available Winchester White box for $20. and if its all they got ill pick of Remington UMC for just under $10 for 50.

    I am ordering online from Cabela's, it comes down roughly to around $14 per a box of 50 rds. Magtech..However, it is more than a month now and still waiting.

    Sometimes Walmart will also carry Blazer Brass 9mm, for about $8.97-$9.47 a box of 50. Of the two Walmarts within 10 miles of my house, one carries the Blazer Brass (when you're lucky enough to catch it in-stock, of course), and one does not. The next nearest one (in a small town) also carries it, but several other stores in larger towns I've recently visited do not offer it at all.

    Decent stuff at a good price, if you can find it.

    Some gun shops in SE Michigan are selling a box of 50 for $20 (and that is regular FMJ not hollow point)..They claim that it is costing them that much and that they hate to pass it to the customers..But I definitrly doubt their story.

    I was at my local walmart the other day looking, and they had some 243, a box of 357, a couple boxes of 17 HMR or whatever, and a crapload of shotgun shells...

    oh yeah, and about 25-30 empty shelves

    Lately for me it's been Big5 and if I'm determined and willing to put up with the BS that has become of trying to buy ammo at a lower price, Walmart. Big5 is $15.00 per 50 round box of Lawman, WWB, Remington, or PMC.

    Average Price Of 9mm ammo??

    What's average these days? I've paid as much as around $15.00 a 50 round box for Blazer Metal Case FMJ, and actually found Winchester White Box at WallyWorld Friday for $19.87/100 round box. The a-hole just ahead of me bought up 5 boxes at that price, I was left to buy the single 100 round box, and a 50 round box of WWB for $9.77.

    I saw some last evening on Ohio Swap Giant of the 100 round boxes of WWB for $30.00 per box. I sent the seller an e-mail giving him hell for buying the stuff, likely at the same price I paid, and then turning around to sell it for a $10.00 per box profit. In my opinion, shooters shouldn't be screwing their fellow shooters.

    I tend to believe the smaller retailers story about cost to them versus sale prices, they don't have the volume buying power of a WalMart. I've seen several documentaries over the years showing how WalMart negotiates their buying, they basically tell the manufacturer what they'll pay rather than the manufacturer stating their price per unit of anything.

    WalMart in Houston sells Blazer Brass at $8.95 if you can find them. They also have a new policy, you can only buy 2 boxes of handgun ammo.

    I've noticed the larger chains are putting box restrictions on their ammo due to the shortage, There are 2 big 5's here, they limit 2 boxes per customer depending on the ammo.

    I agree. If a gunshop is getting regular ammo shipments right now, they are probably paying a premium to get it, and of course they are going to pass that cost on to the customers. The alternative is not to have ammo at all, and that can not only tick-off your regular ammo customers, it will start to impact your gun sales, too (saw a couple trying to buy a .380 the other day at a big-box sporting goods store; the clerk didn't have any ammo for the gun, and they walked out without buying). Walmart literally buys goods by the trainload, and has contracts of varying lengths for most items, so THEY aren't caught up in price spikes. When this all shakes out, I expect Walmart prices will jump a bit too, as the ammo manufacturers refuse to sell at anywhere near the old wholesale prices and lose money. The price increases will hit Walmart too, it's just is going to take longer (maybe a LOT longer).

    when its all said and done, its about supply and demand. those that can supply will charge more to those that demand.

    i hope the temporary shortage ends soon and all those F#$%^& ammo scalpers get stuck with their caseloads of ammo.

    Best deal in (my) town right now, if they have any. I found the 100-round WWB Value Packs on the shelf unexpectedly last week, and scooped up a handful so I can practice for a few upcoming IDPA matches. Once I can find some primers, I'll breathe easier (in the short term).
