Every morning when the doors open there is a parade of 20 to 30 men coming in to gather what they can at one box per caliber.
Last week they put out 8 of the Bucket O Bullets. As soon as the doors opened the first 8 customers each grabbed one. Poof gone that fast.
Unfortunately most who do this at Academy are simply reselling the ammo at the markups many are willing to pay.
I am seeing this stuff at local LGS's for 2-5x markup, and noticing the local gun traders are the same.
