GunBot find 223 5.56 AR-15 ammo in stock


Gunbot is a great tool to find ammo but greater tool to find the price gougers. When put in list form they stick out like a sore thumb. I'm guessing that the reason the "gougers" have ammo is because not as many buying at there inflated prices.

Fyi... In my part of IN, we can't find 9mm, 22lr, 380, 5.56, 223... basically I can't find anything but shotgun and the lesser used high power stuff. Ironically, one local store has an abundance supply of Blazer brass .45acp. I don't own a .45acp... YET!! As that will be my next hg purchase, I am stocking up on the ammo.

Still plinkin, just shootin' slower...

Going to have to take a little drive out there...I'm off hwy 16 and the ammo at academy around here goes quick. Thanks for the heads up.

Interesting... In my part, we saw it get a little better, then the bottom fell out. No ammo, not even at the ranges. I have 6 LGS and a WalMart that sell ammo and none of them have any pistol or rifle ammo. Three of the LGS are ranges and they don't even have 9mm for shooters or even gun buyers. No wait for range time at this point. Forget about .22LR. Not even sub sonic ammo. It has been this way for about two weeks now. I shop for 9mm, .380, .22LR and .45. I shoot with my stock every weekend and have been rotating between guns depending on what I find. I then shop to replace what I used every week. My gun safe has been taking a hit lately. We have a show this weekend and I can't imagine what the prices are going to be.

I stopped at two different academy stores this morning and they had had 9mm! Waited in line at the first for a few minutes and saw the only two 9mm bricks go to the first two folk in line but I was able to get a box of 9mm and .40S&W. On my way to work I decided to stop at a second academy (~8:25am) and was able to do the same, box of 9mm and box of .40S&W. Guess who'll be at the range this weekend!

I've stopped looking. I'm tired of wasting my time. I'm just going to shoot what I have and restock after the craziness dies down.

Here in Pennsylvania, ranges won't sell you more than 1 box of 9mm (for $15/50). I don't have the patience to wait at Wally World for the ammo case to be restocked. Cabela's has been pretty good with online ordering and rationing but I hate having to pay sales tax and shipping.

I also noticed Freedom Munitions upped their prices by ~$30/500 and ~$60/1000. They sell out absurdly fast -- so fast that their website often becomes unresponsive. Forget the Slashdot Effect, welcome to the Ammo Effect

yesterday, local WMT, the last three 50rd boxes of Federal 115gr 9mm

this morning Wife and I stopped at a further distance away WMT, we each got three 100rd boxes of WWB 115gr 9mm (they also had .40 & .45 but I've got that - no .22lr - sold early)

750rds in 2 days - not bad - now have enough for guests who'll be visiting

UPDATED 4 Apr - got three 100rd boxes of WWB .380 at local WMT this morning (they also had WWB .40cal and lots of that junk, tulammo in 9mm, .40 & .45 - I'd rather not shoot than use that stuff !)

1050rds in 3 days

I saw 100 round 9mm Winchester packs at my LGS for the first time in the 3 months I've been checking the other day, and they also had 50 packs. (This is in northern CA) - 1 box limit unless you buy a gun and then its a 2 box limit.

No .22lr in stock locally, but I keep Gunbot open and listen for the beep.

I'm having good luck with gunbot. I just sent for 5 boxes of 100 round Winchester .40 for $38 each (Cabelas). I hate paying shipping but would hate more to go to the range and have none.

Local WalMart had .22lr, .380, 9mm, .40 and .223 yesterday. I got the last 3 boxes of .223 and the wife grabbed 3 boxes of .22lr. Ammo has been showing up around here pretty regular.

I went to the gun store and picked up a case of 175 rounds of 00 buck for my 12 gage for $143 and there was quite a bit more left. I wish it was always that price or lower because then I would buy a Benelli M4.

I'm far northeast SA, Schertz/Cibolo area. I know Austin isn't far and I head towards North New Braunfels and San Marcos often (Bucee's to be specific). I'm not sure about your location XavierNu.


I'll tell you what guys, I'll be happy to keep an eye out for .45 and 9mm FMJ if that's what you need it. I can buy up to 3 boxes of different calibers and all I need is .40.

I passed over 100rd packs of .22.

I'd appreciate it if you all could keep an eye out for a new P250 .40/.357 mag. I was hoping to check out Cabela's on the way home on Easter Sunday but the route from Salt Lick toward home brought me too far south on 35.

Maybe we can work something out.

I'm in the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Today was the first time in 4-5 weeks I've been able to get 9mm for less than $.60/rnd. Hell I paid $.80/rnd 4 weeks ago because I was completely out!

I bought three 9mm pistols because of the low price of 9. At the LGS in Salt Lake today, 9mm was the MOST expensive at $25.00 per box. Even .45 was only $21 per box. The store did have a healthy stack of 124gr and 115gr however.

I wish that when talking prices one would describe what they are talking about.( mm 20 buc a box.Was that target SD 20,50 or 100 rnds. A good description would be 9mm critical defense HP 20 rd box for xx dollars.

9mm range ammo,250 round value pack 115 grain xx dollars. Just my 2 cents.

A little tip. Call Academy before driving up there. Dial the number for the store and then 0 to go to CS. They keep all the popular ammo up front at the CS desk and they can tell you exactly what they have before you go.

I've been able to snag ammo pretty much at will just by checking Academy/Cabelas every so often. I stocked up 600 rounds of 9mm since all this craziness started at an average of about 28 cents a round.

Yikes, I'm in DFW too, where are you buying 9mm for such high prices, Cheaper than dirt? I've been paying on average of 14 a box of 50. I also got a 250 round box of UMC9 for 75.
