Wally world has been selling them both for some time. I used to buy the Fed. 4 packs because they had the same hull as Top Guns. I reloaded them for popper reloads. Now Fed. has gone to the" Euro Trash" hul for the 4 packs ,so I just buy the Estates now (the ones made in the USA). Wally has them fir $5.45 per box.
i get the same winchester and federals from a walmart in PA for the same price, good price, i shoot them for my handicap rounds when shooting ATA registered targets from the 20 yard line. A few other guys at the club i belong too use them too
At 10 cents a round (current low market price) that is only $20,000.00. If one gets 15 cents a round (current high average price) it is still only $30,000. Where do you retire on that?
That said, we should have all stockpiled ammo years ago as part of our investments. I have under 5 cents a round in my Lake City .45 ACP ammo and under 2 cents a round in my .22 LR ammo (various brands - mostly 100 packs and some bricks of 50 packs in the more exotic .22 LR and .22 WRM) I bought surplus .308 and 30.06 so long ago I can't actually remember what I paid but I think it was around 1 cent a round. If and when I chose to sell any of it, it will keep me in shotgun shells for the rest of my life.
Given what is coming, I think we can all expect ammo to go up even more in 2017 and 2018 than it did in 2014 and 2015.
