    Drove to Waco yesterday to run some errands and ended up at both Academy and Cabela's. While purchasing ammo wasn't my reason for going, how do you go to either place and not end up buying a box or two of something. I only looked at prices for ammo I use and just did a general browse to see what else was available.

    .22 - Academy had several boxes at the gun counter. I don't know what the price was as I didn't need any. I did not see any .22 at Cabela's.

    .223 / 5.56 - Both stores had plenty of .223 for 9.99 up to the mid 20.00's for the 'hog hunting' rounds. I saw more .223/5.56 at Cabela's. Also at Cabelas they had these square cardboard boxes of 120rnds (IIRC) for 79.99 and 240rnd for 170.00 (give or take a few bucks).

    9mm - Both stores had a heck of a lot more than .40

    .40 - Academy had less than 10 boxes SD ammo (various manufacturers) I took the last 2 boxes of 50 rnd Winchester 180gr FMJ for 18.99 per box.

    .40 - Cabela's didn't have much of a selection either. A few different types of SD ammo, the cheapest .40 was Lawman (non-brass) w/ this blue bullet. I think it was described as "bonded" or something along those lines. I picked up a box of 100rnd American Eagle 165gr 44.99. 3 boxes remaining.

    .45 was plentiful at the both stores.

    7.62x39 Both stores had it, but Cabela's had spam cans of it, I did not see any higher count boxes of it at Academy.

    7.62x51 - I saw 3 boxes of it at Academy, Cabela's had bigger selection.

    .410 - 12ga - Plentiful.

    Mosins - 6 Rifles for 169.99 - fair condition.

    Hope this is useful to someone here @ TGT.

    In July and August Cabelas typically drops their mosin prices to $130 and there are couple weeks where they get down to $99 when they get huge shipments in

    It is very useful. As I now have another unwanted appt. at the VA. But, it does now give me chance to check and restock my stock if "needed". Needed. That's almost an oxymoron when it comes to ammunition any more ain't it.

    I quit looking at our wallyworld because all I ever heard was "No .40". I have to go back to Waco next week so I'll spend a little more time in town looking around. I'll try to swing by Fun Guns, Unique, and Praco as well as the wallyworlds. If this works out I'll post what I find.

    When I went by Unique and Fun a few weeks back, both had .40. Didn't really ask how many or how much as I was more focused on 9 and .380

    Thought, repeat, Thought, I saw some .40 in the Hillsboro Wally world last week.

    For the first time in a very long time, the local Academy had an end cap loaded with Winchester White Box 100 round count 9mm FMJ for $26.97 each. A fellow asked a clerk if they had any empty card board boxes since he wanted to buy 1,000 rounds.

    When the clerk said no, the fellow shoveled as many boxes as he could carry in his arms and on his chest, then proceeded to check out.

    Guess he did not know Academy has shopping carts and baskets.

    Spot shortages will not end until people quit cleaning out the shelves.

    Went to the Wallworld in Hillsboro yesterday, 27 MAR 2014, an saw quite a few boxes of .40. I believe it was Winchester, about 4-5 boxes and Blazer, about 5-6 boxes.

    Thanks for the follow up. I failed to post what I found at the Hewitt Wally World last week. 5 boxes of Winchester .40 180 gr 50rnd ct. for 18.99

    They had a couple of boxes of 9mm but the guy in front of me purchased those.

    They had 5.56 and .223 out the wazoo as well. Most of it was in those miniature ammo boxes 120ct IIRC.

    My wife went to Waco today and picked up .40 at Academy but I haven't had a chance to ask her about well they were stocked up. I'll end up in Waco tomorrow or early next week and report what I find.
