And here all I did was buy 2 more pounds of powder at Walmart for $60. I've got enough supplies to make 700 rounds of 53gr Vmax hunting ammo for $0.33 per...

Bought 9mm Federal at Academy last week for about $11 a box of 50. Only bought 2 boxes because I wanted to buy 3, 525 round boxes of Federal Champion .22. I'm still shooting .22 but holding off on 9mm.
Sadly the nearest Academy to me is on the other side of the state.

Well, it's kind of a risky deal too. You have to show up before they open on Monday, Wednesday and Friday because that's the days they get ammo shipments. They don't know ahead of time what they are getting so you have to go get in line and one at a time you go to the gun counter and see what they have.

Limited to 3 boxes of any one thing and 5 boxes total. If boxes are 50 rounds, you can get 150 rounds, if boxes are 500 rounds you can get 1500 rounds. If they don't have something you want that day, you just go back the next day.

It really helps to be retired and about 5 minutes away from a store. But at least they don't seem to be jacking prices up to bad if they have what you want.

We have no Academy around here at all. But they have perhaps decent prices if you are local only. For the very few rounds and the hoops you have to go through there, I don't mind them not being here. I wait and bide my time online. Been getting some decent but not old pricing in case quantities of what little ammo I do not already have in stock.

We have a place in town that sells “remanufactured” ammo, and they’re even sold out. Ammo is decent and (so far) reliable, But they can’t even come close to keeping up with demand.

Academy actually seems to have ammo in-stock!? And for not-terrible prices.
Of course their closest store is about six hours from me. Of course.

OK... bit the bullet so to speak then closed my eyes and hit the order button:

American Marksman
7.62 (308) 147 GR M80 FMJ - 500 CT - $365.00
(2) STRYKER - 5.56 M855 STEEL CORE 62 GR FMJ - 250 CT - $360.00

No Tax and free shipping over $500.

THEN

Classic Firearms (yup Classic)
Wolf Performance 7.62x39 1000 Round Case - 123 GR Hollow Point Ammo, Steel Case, Non Corrosive - 1000 Rds. - $319+ shipping etc

The 7.62x51 I didn't feel so bad, guess I don't about the 556 either. Most sites had steel cased for almost the same price on those.

As for the AK fuel, that isn't a horrible price at all!!!

Still need to find some 45/40/9 SD ammo that won't make me crap my pants...

I bought 50 rounds of American Eagle .357 JSP 158 grains for $24. Mostly for the brass, as I finally ordered a Lee Whack-a-Mole Classic Loader for 38/357. I have about 200 cartridges of .357 and 200 of .38...that should last me a good long while.

I’ll need another 500 rounds steel case .308 before I’ll go shoot again.

I REALLY like the $8/20 Tula steel .308 at the Sportsman's Warehouses out here, but I haven't seen any for a month or so now. Sold out online too.:(

Went early and stood in line at Academy yesterday. They didn't get any .22 lr and no 9mm at all on Monday. Have to go back on Wednesday or Friday as I am shooting quite a bit of .22 at the range. Just need some more 9mm to keep as back up for now. Not shooting any 9mm at all right now.
