Have you tried lucky gunner? I bought some 45 hollow points that I couldn't find in town. Think it was 2 day delivery

Kind of ironic that you can get all the deer rifle ammo you want for anything other than 308 WIN or 30-30 WIN. Those are two of the calibers that people have always recommended because ammo for them is so readily available....until everyone wants ammo....and then you can't hardly find any ammo in those two calibers.

I was at Cabela's on Saturday and they had plenty of 243 WIN, 25-06 REM, 257 WBY, 6MM REM, 270 WIN, 270 WBY, 280 REM, 7MM REM, 7MM WBY, 7x57MM, 30-06, 300 WIN MAG, 300 WBY and everything on up. No 22LR, 223 REM, 308 WIN or 30-30 to be had. No buckshot to be had and no handgun ammo for any of the common calibers to be had.

I don't know where you are, but in Mid TN i see 308, .223, and .40 pretty regularly. I see 9mm from time to time. Now .22lr is a thing of myths, but Buck shot is in stock in massive quantities.

the 30-30 thing perplexes me. I have one and it took me a month of looking everyday at lunch to finally find some in 150 gr. I've seen 170gr several times. I just saw a case sitting on the gun counter at Academy last week, but I refrained from buying a box or 3 because I have plenty.

So are there any laws being broken by these guys being ammunition dealers?

Contact corporate headquarters. If enough people complain policy can be changed.

I have done this already, and was told they would take care of the chair thing, they haven't yet. The same guys every morning, buying all they can get and going to the Crump Flea Market and selling them. I hope when they die they bury them with all that precious ammo.

I was told at the clinton walmart its always the same folks buying it early,you would think somebody would want to know who was reselling the ammo to make sure sale taxs were being paid on it,not sure how all the tax laws work or how mant times something can be taxed or how much you sell before you need some kind of lic,crazy times when you cant even but a box of 22 to let your kids shoot some \:\(

I been looking for some 30-06 for about a month now. I got lucky and found 2 boxes at academy sports in west Knoxville for 15.99 a box. i bought 2 boxes and now i can't find nothing. because i was going to buy a box a week until i think i got enough to last a couple of years.

But i was wrong on that so i'm going into reloading just in case i have to reload a few hundred rounds.

last time i was in gander mtn, they had 3 shelves full of 30-06 ammo.

I guess I'm the Lone Wolf on this one but I say the 1st one across the finish line Wins \:\) Rules and regulations, IMO, are something we have too much of already.
In the end, these folks little business will play out but in the mean time, it "should" be their right provided they have the cash to wait in their chairs and buy everything the store will sell them.

Now, If WalMart really cared who got what - they could easily draw times out of a hat daily and put ammo out at 1130 today instead of 7am and 1245 tomorrow instead of the same time daily. If it were my store, the folks in lawn chairs would be scratching their heads and their hemorrhoids from sittin too long on most days but again, it wouldn't be a "rule" just something to remind them that what they are doing is having an impact on others and to make them Work for their $ \:\)

Just me, but if I only wanted .22 ammo for my kids to plink with, I'd buy me a good pellet rifle for $100 and piles of pellets.

Oh wait.... I did.

Walmart has a no soliciting policy. They could stop this if they wanted. But they choose not to. I had stopped by the north Jackson store on Tuesday morningright at 6:30. To my surprise nobody was there waiting. I found an employee stocking in the camping section. I asked him if they had any ammo in the back. He asked me what caliber, I told him 223 and 22's. He said they didnt have any. I then asked him where the people were that are usually there waiting. He said he hasnt seen them. He said that one of the usual's showed him a paper that showed what ammo they were supposed to be getting. He said the inventory list was pretty accurate with what they actually had. I asked him where the list came from. He said he didnt know.
Skin that one, pilgrim, and I'll get you another!
