    Stopped at Academy for some .308, and stopped at the service counter to see what they had stashed behind the counter. they had American Eagle 9mm in a combo pack. 100 Rnd. FMJ and 20 Hollow points. 124 grn. FMJ Practice and Federal 124grn. Hydra-Shok jhp. $55 for the box. I thought it was "reasonable", so I threw it in the basket. $23 for AE .308 / 150 Grn. and $39 for Winchester .308 168Grn. Match. Since I don't reload, I don't think I got raped to much.

    I've seen those combo packs before. Neat idea, and a decent price.

    That is a very good price, if you are willing to pay for it in these difficult times. Happy you purchased from a retailer instead of one those nasty ammo skanks who line up before dawn to buy "cheap" ammo then sell it at "A$$ Rape" prices. Academy, in my eye, has been good to their customers since they first opened their doors.

    Well I'd given up on Wally world. but I did see Winchester 180 Grn. soft point " Deer Thugs" $ 24.64. Also it helps to be a early week day shopper.:peace:

    Pretty sure I bought that exact same thing over a year ago for around $49 so that's not bad...

    I don't buy ammo from them anymore because of their limited stock. Then again, I'm spoiled because I can go to Gander, Academy, and Champion Firearms here in College Station and they always have what I need and more. Not to mention Champion has ridiculous discounts and they know how to treat ya right.

    Gander Mountain, Spring, Tx prices are WAY HIGH (tho I've bought 'cause couldn't find elsewhere) and they, sometimes, have a better selection

    now both my local, Conroe/Montgomery Academy and 2 WalMarts are selling everything I'm needing (tho Academy is just a small bit higher for the same ammo)

    Yeah, Academy always seems to have the best selection. But I ain't buying none of that gold plated TED ammo.!

    Gander Mtn is a highway robber... Started looking for a Beretta Bobcat and found they had one in stock, MSRP from Beretta is 400, they had it for 500.
