    How far are you from Sparta? I wonder if Grand leftovers got redistributed.

    Finally after several months, my local Walmart in South Orange County, California, has had the shelves stocked with about fifty 4-packs of 12 ga. Then they are sold out in about two days.

    I bet with the fall hunting season approaching, the shelves will be better stocked.

    Our Walmarts in Fort Wayne have had Winchesters and Federals all summer. Just got 2-100 round Winchester white boxes of .45acp, they had 10 boxes. They were $40.77 per box, up $3.00 from a year ago. Not to bad of an increase compared to all the price gouging going on from the local gun shops.

    There were no "grand leftovers" at Sparta Walmart. As of Sunday they had sold every flat of AA trap loads in stock along with the Fed and Rem they had. A friend was there hoping to pick up a few more flats of AAs and all they had were a few flats of AAs with #9 shot.

    Store all loaded here also. Things are looking better so the hoarders that are reselling for a profit will get stuck with it soon. I see a lot of people on trapshooters right now trying to unload what they have so they don't get stuck.

    Noticed the Walmart in Fl is almost $27.00/ 4 pack---That almost equals $70.00 for bargain basement shells.

    John55,

    Unless your friend got it from the Sparta Walmart that they sold all of the ammo, it could indeed be left over, that was shipped out Sunday after the Grand.

    He was at the Sparta Walmart and found nothing on Sunday. The store manager told him they could have sold another two truck loads if they had them.

    waverider,

    The ammo showing up in the other Walmarts, is not leftovers from the Grand stock at Sparta Walmart. Just about every post here is about 4 packs they have found at their Walmarts. You don't seriously think the ammo they had for the Grand was a bunch of 4 packs? Had there been any left over, it would have likely just stayed at and sold at Sparta Walmart. Remember, The WSRC and area clubs have more shoots this year and there are other clay target shoots other than just trap.

    For what it's worth, Sparta also has a large selection of the 4 packs.

    Saturday morning at the Sparta Wal-Mart the only thing they had in AA's was 26 gram low recoil low velocity shells and a few one ounce 9's. They did have quite a few Winchester super targets at that time. Almost no Remington or Federal shells left. A few of the AA trackers.

    Same here in lower NY.........Walmart shelves all of sudden nicely stocked with Federal Game/Clays 4 packs. However.........my usual ammo supplier, Davis Sports in Sloatsburg........went from having SKIDS of $65.00 flats of Federal Ultras at the door.......to ZIPPO !!! They said they would not be available again for months. In the meantime, they must have broken open the last few flats they had, and sold each box at $9.00 EACH !! That's up from $6.50 when they had flats in stock !! MORE THAN AA's !! Are they kidding me ?????????
