Default Wal Mart ammo

I was at the gun store yesterday and one of those guys that just sit around and BS said that all Wal Mart ammo, Federal, Reminton or any of it is seconds, where when they pass over the eye or scale or the assembly line they get kicked out for whatever reason and gets sent to Wal Mart. Does anyone have any idea if there is any truth to this or not?

they want to make you think that you should buy all your ammo from them.

My LGS actually carries Walmart ammo (at a significant markup of course).

It is the maroon box federal and even has a "WM" at the beginning of the SKU.

I'm sure he just goes to Walmart and cleans them out. He has told me that walmart sells ammo cheaper than he can get it.

I have shot many rounds of Wally World ammo from several of my firearms.... and have never really had any issues myself.

WM ammo is the same as the stuff you find other places. The reason they can sell it so cheap is because they have the buying power to get it cheap. i.e. They may buy 100,000 cases of ammo in a week when most other places may buy 10 cases in 6 months. The more you buy at one time, the better the deal you can get on it.

I heard the same crap from my buddy who is the head service guy at the local car dealership. I had been getting BFG TA KO tires for my truck at Wally world and he tried to tell me they were seconds at Wal-mart! That's BS!!! They just want you to pay their high prices.

Wouldn't surprise me if they each have a sub par line set up just to supply WM. WM has other companies make WM only items , why not ammo makers ? Doesn't mean the ammo is bad ...just not AS good .
