Yeah I was there around 8:30pm tonight and there was still quite a bit on the end cap.


They had some 9mm stell as well.

Academy on 75 at spring creek had quite a bit of variety of 9mm this morning.  The walmart next door had a lot of 9mm 100ct boxes and some 380 and lots of 40SW.

I am starting to find 9mm a lot easier to find. around plano mckinney

Weatherford Wal-Mart, Friday afternoon. One of the few remaining Wal-Marts that sells guns.

All but wiped out of ammo, 4 value packs of Winchester .22 shells and a few boxes of centerfire rifle ammo.

Quite a bit of birdshot in 12 and 20 gauge.

As of 7:00 p.m. yesterday evening, the new Academy in McKinney still had good quantities of Monarch .223 in both brass ($9.99/box) and steel ($6.29/box). The steel case is on an end cap on the ammo aisle facing the gun counter. They also have .45 Blazer brass ($19.99/box) and Winchester USA ($22.99/box). I didn't pay much attention to prices because I own neither, but they also had a fair amount of .40 and 9mm. My inquiry on .380 was greeted with a scoff.

There were so many people in there looking at guns last night you'd have thought they were giving them away.

Austin- Wal Mart at 35 and Ben White

No 9mm, 357 Sig WWB, and I think the guy in front of me bought the last .223 UMC.

The Leatherman Blast multi tool was on clearance for 45 down to 25.  They had three left in the clearance aisle, just to the right of the sporting goods counter.

academy at 635 and 75 is out of almost everything.  Only 2 boxes 9mm 1 box 38 special, and not much .22.  Plenty of 223 steel and brass cased though if you want to overpay.  Also I did the math today and the price for walmart shotgun shells and academy remingtons are so darn close if you need 250 and want to reload them you better buy at academy.  Good luck out there.

In the interest of science, I took one for the team to confirm aforementioned discount. It was 10%.

Hope that helps.

They only gave us 10%. $50 off each pack. My wife went and picked it up at lunch, so I just had a chance to look at it. It is the big bulk pack where they are all just loose in a plastic bag inside a box. Looks like FC headstamps on all the ones I could see.
Link Posted: 3/17/2009 7:08:59 PM EST
don't get me wrong...10% is a good price...just trying to clarify the "deal"

Loose pack can be a good thing ...if you can inspect the results.

Can we get some order to all this information, for example:


Date of visit:                                        Today
Store name:                                       Walmart
Store location:                                    75 & 380 M cKinney
Ammunition:                                        9mm brass case
Type:                                                     Winchester White box 100 round value pack
Cost out the door (to inculde tax):       25.00$
Quantity you saw on hand:                  4 value packs

I think this might help us all to see what is available where and for how much.  I am trying to get 1k of 9mm brass and would like to be able to compare online vs out the door prices.

Nothing really special here.  No 7.62x39 at either place. I asked about WWB in 9mm/.45 and they say they haven't seen any stock in the last couple months. Bummer!
I had found some Federal XM193F brown box for $9.50 per 20 rounds about a month ago but haven't found any since.
