Is .45 ACP ammo still scarce?

Ok gentlemen tis the season to get more .45 ammo but I see that there is none here. Is anyone else encountering this problem?

If so I will travel to Laredo which is south on the border with Mexico. People there only shoot thug calibres so if you want some .45 let me know! I won't charge you extra just thought I would be nice enough for all the people in Arlington. PM me or post here, I can get anything from Academy or Wal-mart.

Wallyworld is carrying Federal .45 ACP now? I thought WWB was their exclusive manufacturer?

I see both Blazer and WWB at Wallies. I hardly ever see .45 though. I'd be in for two boxes of WWB or Blazer brass personally. I could always use another 100 rounds of .45 in stock.

It's hit or miss on 45ACP at my Walmart. In the last month or two it seems like their stock levels are starting to return to normal, but you still never know what you're going to find when you visit the ammo counter.

My local academy finally got some in. They now get a steady though not so large supply every week now. I don't support wally world anymore. Can't stand the company nor the stores.

The new Acadamy off of 377 in Keller had 3 boxes of 100rnd Remington for $44.00 each. They also had an off brand ammo made at the PRVI-PARTAZAN plant in Serbia. Decent ammo too. Cost was $17.99 for 50rnd.

You can also go HERE and get the PRVI-PARTAZAN for $21.99 per 50 rnd box. Mail order but they are in Brenham TX and delivery is one day (after shipping, which takes a day or two).

Academy in Burleson (last night) and the one by Ridgmar (couple hours ago) had WWB, Federal and Monarch brass .45ACP. I've been seeing more and more of it on the shelfs...

50 or 100 rnd?

I've been wanting a 100 rnd to test the ammo out.

Not as scarce at the two Walmarts near me. I usually find a few boxes of .45 ACP when I stop by.

I need at least 300 rounds of .45ACP, and 300 rounds of 9mm. Also a few bricks of .22LR if you can find any.
