Norcal Walmart ammo in stock
 
I've seem some threads about the ammo availability in Walmarts in the east bay and down south so I figured that i would start one for us up a little father north. I check stores in Chico and Oroville almost daily so I'll report what I find and anybody else is free to add their finds as well. I stopped by Oroville Walmart today around 9:00 am and they had about 10 50 round boxes of WWB IN 9mm they also had about 5 of the federal 100 round value packs of 9mm. They had a few other boxes of handgun ammo but it was the expensive sd ammo and i didn't really pay much attention. I don't shoot 9mm so this didn't help me out, but hopefully one of you guys can go get some of it!

Thanks for the heads up! I was down there a few days before Christmas and there shelves were pretty bare. The last few days it seems like there has been more ammo on the shelves, maybe some sense of normalcy is returning... We can only hope!

Vacaville Walmart is out...There were +10 boxes of 9mm WWB at Dixon - grabbed 3 yesterday. Went back this morning for some more and they are out!

4DMASTR 02-10-2013 6:29 PM

About an hour after I left a buddy went by and cleaned out the 9mm. My dad went down and all the .223 was gone.

Elk Grove Walmart is empty.

ALOC 02-11-2013 8:06 AM

Modesto Walmart on Sisk nothing.

Jacfourteen 02-11-2013 10:23 AM

I checked Chico Walmart this morning at 5:00 am, but they hadn't stocked the shelves yet. I'll stop by on my way home and check again...

mshill 02-11-2013 1:47 PM

I check the Roseville Walmart 2-3 times a week in the morning on the way to work. I got three 100 rnd boxes of federal 9mm this morning and there were 4 boxes left and I am sure the two guys behind me got the rest. By the time I could post anything, it will already be gone.

I find .223 once a week now but at three boxes of 20 I am shooting 4 times as much each week as I am able to buy.

They always seem to have some 40 cal.

Jacfourteen 02-11-2013 2:23 PM

I just checked chico again, they had quite a bit of the popular rifle calibers except only one box of .223. They were totally cleaned out of handgun calibers.

Timbob55 02-11-2013 2:38 PM

Yesterday the Rohnert Park store had a few boxes of .243 and .270. That's all.

spetsnaz 02-11-2013 2:44 PM

still hoping elk grove would be stocked one day...

Jacfourteen 02-12-2013 2:00 PM

I checked chico Walmart a little while ago and they still had lots of hunting calibers and about 10 boxes of federal 5.56, it probably didn't last long though with the crowd waiting for the clerk to open the cabinet.

I have been checking the ones in Yuba City, about 6 AM weekdays and the Woodland one about noon. No luck so far.

Jacfourteen 02-14-2013 5:07 AM

Chico had about 20 boxes of 100 round Winchester white box value packs in .45, they also had about 3 boxes left of .40 value packs. That was it for the handgun ammo, but they have lots of hunting calibers left. The .40 was $34, and i forgot to check the price on .45. Hope thishelps someone out.

Manteca, CA Walmart has a LOT of things coming in daily it seems. I've gotten 600 rounds of .40 FMJ and 100 rounds of .40 JHP. Also 100 rounds of 9mm JHP.

There is a guy in sporting goods, John, who literally gave me a copy of their manifest for today (last night around 5pm PST). If you ask him, he will let you see it every time. 209-824-2000 is their number.

Sounds like a cool guy, everyone I ask that works there tells me they don't know what they are getting until it gets there... Always sounded like bs to me, I guess they are just too lazy to look at the list for me.

WeiseGuy 02-14-2013 9:37 AM

You just gotta find your guy lol...

I was always told they load the shelves around 4am-ish...this guys said at 8:00pm they can start pulling stock "to be honest" (as he put it)....

Manteca was getting some more .45 JHP and FMJ. Also the bulk 100 winchester packs of FMJ .40....some 9mm too if I remember right.

Stockton has a sale between 7am and 10pm, any other stores give you this run around?

WeiseGuy 02-14-2013 11:08 AM

Never heard of that at all.

skosh69 02-14-2013 11:13 AM

Contra Costa and Alemeda County Wally Worlds do not sell ammo....:mad:

Man, I'm sorry.

By the way, if anyone thinks walmart is going to stop selling ammo, that is just a bad rumor per 3 store managers i talked to in san joaquin, they are definitely going to keep selling its just short supply.

Hard to imagine Walmart getting rid of an item that sells through for them quickly and consistently. Being the biggest retailer in the world typically means you're too big to bow to any public or political pressure.

Though of course I happen to live smack dab in the middle of the "ammo desert" of Walmarts in the Bay Area that do not sell ammo. Nearest location I could feasibly go to that sells ammo is at least a 50 minute drive if there's no traffic.......:facepalm:

Jacfourteen 02-20-2013 4:59 AM

Stopped by chico Walmart a few Minutes ago and they are pretty well stocked on 9mm, .40 and .223. They had 11 of the 250 round umc in 9mm for $63. They also had about 20 of the 50 round boxes of wwb in 9 for $13.27. About 15 Boxes of .40 50 round wwb for $19.27. And about 15 of the 50 round value packs of Remington .223 for $25. There was quite a bit of other ammo, but this was the popular stuff.

echopapa 02-20-2013 6:20 AM

Sorry, a bit off-topic, but did anyone notice that Walmart took down the handgun/rifle ammo off their website? I used to go check on stock availability (was somewhat accurate before the craze)

I never believed those, so I didn't notice :)

4DMASTR 02-20-2013 6:37 AM

Went by McHenry Wal-Mart in Modesto about 7PM last night and they were stocking the shelf, they just got 9, .40 and .45 in so I bagged my limit on 9mm

Yes very strange. Especially when you see ammo show up in stock and then disappear on their website but never see it on the shelves. Almost like the employees are scooping it up. I'm sure they took it down from all of the complaints.

Was on my way back down to the eastbay from davis yesterday. Hit all 4 walmarts along the way (Dixon, Vacaville, Fairfield, American Canyon) and none had any popular calibers. Vacaville did have some 00 buck but that was the nly thing worth mentioning.

Walmart has some sort of agreement with Alameda and Contra Costa county and the city of San Jose to not sell ammo. Not sure how long this been in place but it was before my time. We have two or three options in the bay area which is Milpitas, Mountain View and Gilroy. Bbecause of that all ammo get snatched up within an hour of being restocked.

Got some 17hmr at the Elk Grove Walmart.

Jacfourteen 02-28-2013 7:23 PM

Checked this morning at chico Walmart and they had nada, asked the lady at the counter and she said they didn't get anything today. I'll check in art 5:30 tomorrow morning and see if they got anything good.

Jacfourteen 03-15-2013 6:12 AM

Checked Oroville Walmart just now and they had about 10 of the 225 round boxes of .22 golden bullets for $10. They also had a bunch of 50 round boxes of .22, but i didn't pay much attention to what brands. They also had 100 round boxes of 9 mm for $30.
