I did see 3 boxes of .308 for $59.99/box.

I needed some, so, I picked up 10 boxes of 5.
Also picked up some .454" round ball and some Pyrodex fffg powder.

Got to the check-out, and they would only let me buy 5 boxes of the #3 buck and NO round balls.

"There were NO SIGNS of quantities allowed, anywhere."

"You might take them into the parking lot and sell them."

"Hahahahahahaaaaaaa. Lady, I drove 65 miles to buy this stuff. I'm not sellin' anything."


My wife bought 5 boxes of #3 Buck. Left the round ball sitting on the counter.
5 boxes limited signs on customer service desk

There's nothing quite like standing on the firing line, stuffing your ramrod down a waiting black hole, slathering your balls with grease, and then having as many as eight nipples.

Sorry you missed out. As others said, it is hit or miss. One day they have hundreds of boxes of 5.56 and 9mm, the next day it is gone.

The signs are all over, even right on the shelf where you picked up the shells (see pic). I don't know how you missed them. Signs at both entrances, a sign in the aisle, and 2 signs where the ammo usually is.

I read your post minutes before going in so I expected they might be gone, but nope... still there where they've been for weeks.

Pics for anyone who wants to see their policy.

Wasn’t on the shelf at BP- they were setup over by the safes near the shooting arcade and selling off the rolling carts they use to stock with.

Yup. You have to check 3 places now.... on the shelf where the shells are (they sometimes put the 9mm and rifle ammo there), the black shelf in the aisle (I usually see winchester wb 5.56 there), and down by the safes is their new spot.

Next they'll start hiding boxes on shelves like a scavenger hunt... make you shop the whole store.

Ah!!!!!!! We never even went over near there.
We actually went in there to see IF they had #10 or #11 percussion caps.

Itís a shell game of sorts they seem to be playing, then they try to get you to sign up for their credit card with the caveat that they let you buy more boxes of ammo.

Ya know, the young lady at the checkout asked if I had a _____.
Never did understand what she said, because of those daggone masks.
This old man can't decipher what people are sayin', when they have a rag in their mouth(s).

I told her that I didn't know what she was talking about.

Oh well. I don't have their card (any longer), anyway.

I went to Bass Pro today in Bristol Tn, only ammo they had was 308, 12 Ga slugs and 6.5 Creedmore. No primers or powder. Guy said there is a line every morning to get in for ammo.

On the plus side... opened a credit card and got a 20 dollar credit. So I bought targets and 22, 30 and 44 cal cleaning brushes. Better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. She offered a military discount to boot because she noticed my hat.

Only priced one gun for drill....... Henry Golden Boy youth 22 was 499, that's well under MSRP.

I've been in that store, in Bristol, several times.
My wife has family in Harlan, Kentucky, and I used to live in Kingsport, TN.

Nice store.

Whenever we are there, we also grab a burger and a shake and "Steak & Shake".
