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 shot the federals no problem but tried the Winchesters last week and few were really hard to eject out of my pump, I think the shell swelled in the chamber. Anyone else have this issue?

You guys have your thumbs on the pulse of the ammo market. Not sure where I'd be without this thread.

I hear that .22 can also be found. True? I sure hope so because I'm down to my last 200,000 rounds.
That's a nice retirement portfolio there Tron.

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.
