Went ammo shopping at Bi Mart today. They had a hefty stock of CCI Mini Mag, so I grabbed a 500rnd pack. The price tag was marked $3.79 per 100rnds. Went to the counter and it rang up on sale at $2.99 each.

So I turned around and grabbed another 500 rounds for $14.95

How good of deal is this really? Should I go back and buy them out? My local Sportsmans Warehouse sells the CCI Standard Velocity 100rnd packs for $4.50 or $4.95 depending.

Sounds like you already know the answer. You won't find it that cheap anywhere. Even at $3.79 it's a screaming good deal. At $2.99 you're just taking advantage of the clerk's mistake.

I've never bought any of this ammo before so I wasn't entirely sure. Guess I will go back there tomorrow and pick some more up. Pretty sure they had at least 5000 rounds.

Its $3.00. What are you trying to do, save another $0.50?

I'd have to say yes on this one. I generally have to pay nearly $4 for a pack of 100.

For 2.99, I'd whip out the plastic, and let the good times roll!

Me too. My Walmart now gets I think $4.77/100 for CCI MMs. Grab all you can at that price!

BiMart has CCI minimags on sale every couple months at 2/$5 so although it's a decent price it's not bimarts best. There is usually a limit of 4 boxes at that price so I go back several times during the week for more. I think I've still got about 2K of it at home.

Go for it, BiMart is the best source for CCI MiniMags wherever their stores are.

I picked up about 3,000 rounds last year at TSC (all they had at that time). They had them in their ad for $2.00 / 100 rounds. Thought I was misreading or it was a misprint, but nope! All my .22's love the Mini-Mags.

I went back today but forgot my wallet and I only had a $50 in the car. I bought 1000 rounds of CCI Mini Mag Hollow Points (same price), and 500 rounds of the Mini Mags.

I might go back again but right now I have about 4000 22 rounds which should last me about a month, maybe a little more.

Oh, and they had Remington UMC 223 for $4.25 a box

do you think it's worth the cost of the plane ticket to fly across the country to Washington or Oregon to by a few 100 thousand rounds or not? I guess you would have to pay shipping to get it back across the Mississippi. Maybe it isn't worth it afterall. Oh well.
