Walmart Pistol Ammo Clearance now 50% off YMMV

Recommended Posts

You probably saw a couple of months ago where Walmart announced they wouldn't be selling pistol ammunition.  I had been watching and while there had been some markdowns there wasn't any price that couldn't be beat with bulk buying and in particular with Black Friday Specials and rebates happening. 

That changed as it has now dropped to 50% off today, or at least it did at the Ft. Henry Drive Kingsport location.  I was actually alerted to it by the clerk as I came up to check on prices.  It was it won't last long if all the sporting goods clerks are that proactive in letting folks know, but you may be able to snag a deal or too.  I couldn't pass up 9mm Rem UMC 250 rd mega packs for $25.  It was also a good excuse to buy some premium self defense ammo at a great price. 

The earlier discounts had thinned some of the variety down, but it seemed that every common caliber still had something on the shelf.  I don't know if this is system wide or just a single store, but its worth checking if you need more ammo.

Dang, I gotta find some time to stop by there. I passed it earlier today. If I get done early tonight maybe I can. 

Not that I NEED any more ammo. ... but....  lol

Prices are slashed in Knoxville as well and it’s going fast.   Word has gotten out.

There is a Walmart clearance thread on arfcom with a bunch of SKUs, and it is also posted on Slick Deals if you want to check specific calibers and potential availability.

I grabbed 1k of 9mm for 10cpr (after tax!) and 800 rounds of 5.56 for 16cpr. I wish I had grabbed more yesterday but left a few boxes for the next person....but today I'm going for more.

I just bought the last few boxes of 9mm at my local WM. All they had was WWB 115gr FMJ, but $9 for 100 was still a good price. There was still a little .380, .357 and .45 left and plenty of .40.

Whaaaat?? Must get dressed and get to Walmart. :panic:

 

 

I'm just kidding. I have more 40 than Walmart. Besides that, now all the guys/gals that carry The Right Stuff headed over there.

Stopped by Ft Henry at lunch. Besides LOADS of .40 S&W,  they had a few boxes of .32 Auto and .25 Auto. I bought the last box of .380 Tula, and last  4 boxes of Tula .45.

Clerk said someone bought $1000 of ammo yesterday in one transaction. Said sold out of most stuff yesterday

Damn! I missed this.  Probably nothing left.  I did tell my daughter to go by there and see if she could find any .32ACP for her Keltec.

Shelbyville Walmart has a ton of Winchester 5.56 200 round boxes for $30 a box. I got all I needed and they said there's a bunch of cases still in the back. 9mm and 45 are pretty much gone though.

Are they going to stop selling 5.56?

Yes.  5.55/.223, 7.63x39, and .300 Blackout are all going.  Those are all “assault rifle” calibers.

Multiple managers have said the corporate directive is 22LR, hunting rounds (30-06, .308, etc but soft point only), and shotgun ammo.

 

And if you haven't heard, anything left on shelves as of 12-29 is being donated to local PD. Two managers told me no further price drops are forthcoming, but who knows for sure. Either way, can't pass on sub-10cpr 9mm and sub-16cpr 5.56!

Made a stop by Bristol, VA exit 7. when I left there were still several boxes of white box Win .38 ($9), Hst .380, ($9), and did have some .223 ($14 ??) and 7.62x51. No 5.56 or 7.62 x 39. 

I picked up some .38 Win, .38 HST, and .380 HST.

I also noticed reloading stuff (bullets, dies, and such) seemed to be clearancing out too.

This is a weird deal. I have been to several different Wal-Mart's. The one at Harding and Nolensville and the one on Murfreesboro rd in antioch. Neither one of them has these incredible prices. Their ammo cases still have a fair amount of ammo in them.

Did you ask if it was on sale?  I stopped by one today that was completely wiped out but they did not have any sale signs on the ammo case.  The clerk said a guy came in yesterday and bought $2400 worth of ammo.

      Never owned a .380; never shot one.  Have read lots of info on both sides of the debate that the .380 is or is not a good round for self-defense.  I know that many of you here carry a .380, so please educate me about a caliber I know nothing about.
      Thank you for your feedback!

      I'm doing some loads to shoot out of a conversion cylinder in my 1851 Navy. The instructions for the cylinder are to use 38 Long Colt or 38 Special wad cutters. I've got a good bit of 38 LC brass and want to load 148 grain hollow base wadcutters to get better obturation/grip on the rifling. I haven't found any 38 LC load data for 148 grain wadcutters, but have the data for 38 special. The question is if it is safe to load the wadcutters in the 38 LC brass using the COL and powder charge listed for the 38 special loads. It seems to me that the space inside the case of the 38 LC with the bullet protruding 1/8 inch out of the case would be the same as in the 38 special case. The pressure listed in the Lee manual for the 38 special wadcutters is actually less than for the 150 grain round nose that I have been loading in the 38 LC brass so I think I'm safe there. I thought I'd bounce my logic off some experts before loading them. These are not hot loads by the way.
