walmart.com not showing all ammo brands

Postby sand1303 » Thu Nov 14, 2013 9:38 pm

so why when i look up on walmart.com i can find out what stores have winchester and federal 9mm in stock with the store_msg hack but any time i try searching for the brassmaxx they carry it tells me there is no such thing in the database. the only two brands that show up for 9mm on walmart.com is winchester and federal. i know they stock other brands. the brassmaxx is like 13 something a box. i would like to be able to check out which walmarts have them. i know every walmart i have walked into the sticker is there for brassmaxx. i have bought it from three different stores.

Feel very fortunate... I haven't seen a 9mm in my local Wal-Mart in 2 years...

Ya I have better luck at academy but the walmart clear across town had a crazy load of wwb. I just wish brassmaxx would show up for me to check because it's about 7 $ a box cheaper.

Very jealous. I've found 115 gr Federal fmj there a couple times and Federal 115gr jhp once. .40 and .45 is a little more common, but only a box or two at a time.

Only Walmart can answer your question about ammo being sold that's not visible on their web site. Since the normal view is basically no information about ammo availability at all, I'm kind of surprised they list any ammo on their web site.

That "hack" is kind of nice but I find it's not really very useful since the last inventory date is many times several days in the past. Still, it's a tool to use to start looking. As Miss Kim used to say: "You just never know."

Stopped in one local store yesterday and they had all the brass max, remington, federal, winchester. in 9mm that you could want. A couple of cases UMC 250 pack waiting to be bought. The only shortage appears to be 30=30 right now, but today is start of firearm deer, so that might splain that.
Have all the 9 mm I could use, but they also had several brands of 22lr. Bought the max boxes of federal 22 just for kicks.
Wish I could buy it and ship it to you guys who need it.



I live in Missouri as well and usually don't have any issue in buying 9mm ammo at my local Wally World. One day I saw 6 boxes of 9mm NATO, 4 or 5 Tula steel, 8 Tula BrassMaxx, and 3 Winchester white box (100's).

I bought the WWB.
