The Walmart at Bowling Green,OH jumped their prices on Federal shotshells 100 packs by $2.00 Friday. Now $25.00 +.They had no Win. or Rem. 100 packs in stock.
With many shooters hoarding,they know they can get more money out of them.

I would not leave suppliers, manufactuers, and fuel prices out of the equation either, we have been watching prices rise on everything lately and even if fuel prices have been dropping recently, the cost of the fuel at the time of manufacture of a product is figured in it's cost and sell price.


I have noticed shot shell prices creeping up at various stores before the shootings and panic set in.



Besides as many people who berate WalMart on this site,90 percent would not shop there anyway.

Rick hit the nail on the head. Lot more in involved then just a store deciding to raise the price. Goes lot deeper then supply and demand. Seeing it in many different products. Going to cost you more to have fun.

Good Shooting

Printing money devalues our dollar so prices rise. Trust me, it will only get worse as long as our government does not address our addiction to spending more than we have.

lol @ the free healthcare comment.

My Wal Marts have no 12 or 20 ga ammo at all.

.410 and 28 ga. AAs only and less than a flat of each. If you need .380 ACP, .270 Win., or .22WMR, you should have no trouble finding ammo. Outside of those calibers you're hosed if you need ammo.

I stopped into the local Walmart today. Very little ammo left. The story that the counter guy gave was that they not going to be able to order any of the ammo that they wanted any more, but that they were just going to get what the distributor had to send out, divied up evenly among the stores. He seemed to think that they weren't going out of the guns and ammo business. Mark

Walmart sets prices at what the market can bear. I bought 3 Federal 4 packs today for $20.97 in Joplin but 17 miles south they are $25.97. By the way. they had over half a pallet stacked in the center aisle.

That is because Walmart doesn't set prices at what the market will bear. They set the price at what they paid for them the last time they received them. The same as they do with all the items in the store.
