Went to WalMart to pick up some WWB range ammo in 9mm & 45 this weekend and saw there had been a price increase. Would you believe they wanted $19.56 for 100rds of 9mm and $26.87 for 100rds of 45!!!! Looked through the case some more and found the better deal for the 9mm was two 50rd boxes of Remington Green Box UMC at $8. I ended up buying three 50rd boxes of Blazer Brass at $11.31/each! Has anyone else seen these price increases?

Doing quick price checks on various sites that don't do monthly catlogs and price guarantees, that seems to be the new price range for things in the S&B/WWB/american eagle/etc range.

Just wondering if the price of reloading components have gone up proportionally? I don't reload but am thinking of starting. Economics would be just one of the factors to consider.

That's one of the reasons I started reloading. The price of a box of .40 in NJ at a local place is about $15 + tax!!! I had been ordering ammo online buy the 1000 count at about $12.47 a box (that includes shipping).



The reloading supplies was a decent chunk of $$$ up front, about $1100 .... I did the math and when i reload round 10000 (about) I will have spent as much for all the reloading supplies & equipment as I would have spent buying 9500 rounds online. So it'll take some time to "break even" but after that it's worth it.

I believe the theory behind reloading is not tat you spend less, but you get to shoot more for the same amount of money/time spent.

At Dicks Sporting Goods I bought a value pack of Utramax 250 rounds 9mm and the 50 count buying this way comes to $6.99.



These are 125 gr lead round nose reloads.

I'm sure they do, howver something else just occured to me. With the popularity of sites such as this and all the others like it, I've noticed a recurring theme. Everyone refers to WWB as a great deal for practice ammo......with that level of info sharing going on, I wouldn't put it past WalMart to raise the prices based on the increased demand they've seen.
