Default Minor Score at Cabelas WV.

I went to Cabelas in WV today looking for 9mm target ammo, but found 3-50rd boxes of Remington M1 Carbine Ammo for $18.99 each. After using my accumulated points, I ended up getting 150 rounds for only $40.

They had no .22LR, and no 9mm except for a few dozen boxes of special $1.50/round "self defense" ammo.

Tons of .45 cal ammo. Lots of .223/.556 but still a bit pricey.

They had 1- Rack Grade looking and beat up M1 Garand Springfield($1195) and 1- dirty and very below-average looking Blue Sky Inland($629) in the "museum" room.

I was at the Dundee MI Cabela's last weekend. Funny, cause pretty much the same thing. TONS of .45 ammo and not much else in handgun calibers. Plenty of .223 as well, but yea, over .50/round. No Carbine ammo or any rimfire at all.

Grandville, MI yesterday - all sizes of primers but only about a half dozen pounds of powder. No .22LR, plenty of .223 at $0.50+/rd.

I think now some calibers are back but way over priced so no one is really buying (I guess everyone realized how much more they were paying). I think once the stores realize no one will pay .50 cents a round for .223 it will drop back down

Cabelas tends to be a bit overpriced anyway.

A 50 rd. box of Remington 30 cal. carbine ammo is a very good price. I wouldn't call that overpriced at all.

Ditto @ the Saginaw Outpost store...

Primers in all brands and types and sizes

only about a half dozen types of powder (not the common good stuff either)

Lots of .22 LR, and tons of .223 same prices as above

Federal XM193 was going for $0.36/rd plus shipping last summer. That comes out to be about $0.40 ea. I think $0.50 is the new normal.

I was at dicks sporting goods and academy sports today. I got pmc bronze for about .40 cents a round at dicks. Academy wanted $1 a round for all the .223 except for tula .223 for $14 for 20 rounds.

I was there the weekend before you and there were a few boxes of carbine ammo. Did you happen to see the $3,999 PB M1? They had a 1903 for $1,400 (I believe). Didn't look all that good. It had the end of the barrel ground down. Looked like it may have had a BFA, maybe?
