The only thing i've found not cheaper at wal mart is Winchester 147 gr JHPs. They are actually cheaper to buy online + shipping than at wally world.
Depends on where you look. I found 9mm for about an average of 17c a round online with free shipping over 99 dollars. Cheapest I've found at wally world was tula for about 8c plus tax.

Slick guns.com is my friend.

.22LR is obviously best overall value, that should be a lesson for everyone.
Sorry, didn't mean to seem ungrateful. I really appreciate the work. I browse frequently, do I know what my stuff usually runs, but for my friends looking to start shooting, this is a really good way to illustrate the cost differences for caliber.

Me too, and thanks. I guess the bad thing for me is that I'm now shying away from considering a 7.62x39.

How's that new pistol of yours working out?

Fantastic! Thanks for asking, I do love shooting cheap 9mm and 22 out of the same gun.

Agreed. I find myself shooting it almost exclusively lately. I think my little guys are going to be ready next year (at least one of them), so I'm stocking up

I don't know how you got that 12ga price. I pay max $5.49/25 that's 23cents each and often find 12ga at 4.99/25. 20ga is the same price as 12ga. 16ga, 28ga, .410 are more.

Thanks. I know what you mean, that's what I buy most too, because I use it for Trap and for 3 Gun shoots. I didn't list cheapest prices I found, I listed median prices from online ammo dealers to normal folks. There must be a lot of HD rounds that inflate to median price a bit. That's good stuff though
