Trip to Walmart: What’s up with the Ammo?

In General

In person Wal-Mart description of ammo situation. I got two boxes of the carry load I’ve tested and can’t seem to find elsewhere. I will no longer be getting my groceries, clothes, gifts, or ammunition there.

@RobertM: great tips man didn’t think of that! It is probably best to keep defensive loads factory and not like RIP. LOL

I would use my reloads for defense if the lawyers would not use it against me but I know they will so I don't unless reloads are all I have.

Good advice below. I am about 90/10 reloads to factory. It is time consuming for sure but the cost savings in plinking ammo is very worth while. Hunting or personal defense rounds are not as cost effective but still at least half the cost of factory. It’s fun as well.

Awesome advice thank you I will consider seriously taking up reloading. I have used Walmart for mainly plinking stuff and Ammo I can’t seem to find elsewhere. I have got my personal defensive loads from gun stores and lucky gunner.

Keep your defense loads factory only. Prosecutors will tear you apart in court for using "specially" made rounds. If reloads are all you have then they are all you have but as long as you can get factory defense loads then do it.

@RobertM: You know and I know that a bullet no matter how its made will kill but courts and lawyers will use whatever they can against you. Trying to make it seem like one bullet can kill worse than another.

@RobertM: If its a factory made round bought on the public market then they cannot use that against you.

Buy your ammo from your local businesses and also online if they don't have it. Support your local gun and pawn shops, hardware stores, and other stores that sell ammo first. Then go online. Start reloading. Learn how, get initial gear and components, and then start. Reload safely. Store your reload components just like you would for your factory ammo. Moisture in the air and big temperature swings are a problem so avoid them by using sealed cans and place them in a dry place out of direct Sunlight as close to room temperature as possible. I shoot half and half usually. Half reloads and half factory. I will probably be shooting reloads a lot more though depending on local and online availability of factory ammo.
