The last two years Bass Pro Shops have offered a super sale on 5.56 ammo. They priced 20 round boxes of Win Q3131A at $2.88 per box the first year. They did the same thing last year, but ran out and substituted Remington UMC yellow box 5.56 at that price.

9mm ammo was also on sale at $4.88 per box of 50.

If you applied for a Bass Pro credit card you received an additional 10% off the price.

Needless to say these were super deals.

I just got off the phone with BPS in Orlando, and they say it's regular price on both this year.

Same everywhere, or have some of you guys found some great deals?

Isn't there a war on or something?

Be lucky you can get what you got.

Uncle Sam has got first dibs on any 5.56NATO/223Rem production. Actually, Uncle Sam is somewhat desperate and have gone to the trouble to put in an emergency order with IMI.

Here the 9mm was $10.88/100 rnd box. The only 5.56 to be had was 45gr stuff in 200 rnd "value" packs.

Yes, I know there is a war on. It started back in March of '03. Didn't stop the big sale in August of '03, or the big sale in August of '04.

Bass Pro Shop has 5.56 ammo. It just isn't on sale.

Same thing on 9mm. Tons of it. It just isn't on sale.

My guess is that they just got tired of losing money on the ammo.
