    Hit the Jackpot at Academy today: They had bulk packs of Winchester 333, CCI Swamp People 300 count, and 100 count Mini-Mags today.

    I settled for the 300 count CCI "Swamp People" offering.

    Price? Availability seems to no longer be the question.

    The CCI at Academy was about 23 Dollars plus tax.

    Today, on a whim, I drove over to a near by WalMart because I woke up early and could not get back to sleep.

    Got there at 7:08 a.m. There was a nicely dressed fellow already there. He says to me "this store got a shipment of Federal Automatch."

    I ask him how he knew this. He pulls out his "smart phone" and shows me the ammo was delivered to that store last night.

    After a while, no clerk or anyone shows up. The other fellow eventually finds a manager, and after 40 minutes, we get our three boxes of ammo.

    Just to add insult to injury, the last guy to show up at 8:00 a.m. is allowed to buy the remaining four boxes of ammo.

    Shit happens.

    Availability is still spotty depending on the time of day and store you visit.

    Prices at retail are all over the place: CCI $.09/rd; Win/Rem/Fed $.06/rd; Aquila (which has dried up) $.10/rd.

    Managed to pick up some CCI/Rem/Win today. Average price per round (including tax) was $.065.

    I predict the "new normal" will stabilize at $.08 per round for bulk.

    Apparently there was a pretty big sale event at Walmart today including 22 ammo.

    For the month of October 2014, the supply of .22 LR has dried up. Methinks the retailers are holding it back for a "special" sale later in the year.

    The flow of .22 was steady from May - September.

    Perhaps they want to have actual ammo to sell with their 22 guns this year. :)

    Just when I thought the "supply" for October dried up, it appears Academy got some plastic ammo boxes packed with 16 100-round count CCI's for $129 today. Missed out on this, but did get one box of CCI 300-count "AR Tactical."

    The pendulum continues to swing ...
