Was at Academy yesterday picking up 9mm Blazer, guy says all ammo is going up about 20% on the 19th. Said he was told it was due to cost of lead. May want to get it while you can before the price hike.

Again already? The 9mm Blazer around me went up from $3.86 per box of 50 to $4.86 per box of 50 about two months ago.

How much was it where you were?

$4.86 and going up again 20% or so on Wednesaday, according the counter guy at Academy on Spring Creek & 75 in Plano. Hence my post. Good news is I did not buy it all this time.

That is ridiculous !!

At that price reloads are cheaper, no more money for blazer..they priced themselves out of my money..

I hope they dont raise the price on the Monarch ammo.

Hopefully they will raise their prices enough so that I have to stop buying ammo...

Has anyone been able to buy Q3131 at Academy lately? The one by my house has been out for several months now.

alright here to confirm this i am, yes i work at academy, on bryant irvin, and yes all of are ammo is going up, so buy now! also from what ive heard about 7.62x39 is that america is seeing about 5% of whats being made, the rest is being bought by the military and sent to iraq. but alas, ammo is gonna start to be a bitch in the next couple of months.

sorry fellas

Stopped by the Grapevine store on HWY 26 and picked up a case of Blazer 9mm (for IDPA fun) and confirmed that the price increase is real for all ammo and batteries.

Anything with lead in it is going up 20% on Wednesday according to the counter guy.

IBTPI! I got my ammo today. Thanks guys.

Same thing at Wal-Mart too, I bought a box of 100 Winchester .45ACP rounds on Sunday and by Wednesday the price had hiked $5 a box
Link Posted: 4/18/2006 4:48:11 PM EST
Thanks for the heads up. I mostly only buy Blazer 9mm at Academy and Q3131/A. I got 500 rounds of Blazer today in College Station. Nice thing is they don't even blink when you buy a case lot at Academy!!

Does anyone know roughly how much the price hike will be at Walmart? I bought all 500 rounds of WWB 9mm at my local Walmart.
