No, Auto Mall Durham is in Fremont, Alameda County doesn't carry any. Milpitas Wal-Mart is off McCarthy Ranch.

I talked to the cashier this weekend and he said he hasn't seen federal value packs in stock for over 2 weeks. I wonder when they will get some more.

I used to post something in the original Wally World thread every time I saw ammo. Lately I haven't been doing this. I've noticed that the past few months ammo has been really plentiful as far as what's in stock...WWB .45 and bulk packs included- which is a change from about a year ago when everything was rarely in stock.

Wow! .45 is back in stock! Been almost 3 weeks since it's been out. Federal 50-pack just in case you were wondering.

Best to call in advance and ask for the sporting department, then you can check before you drive in, I used to do that when I used to buy ammo.

My co-worker was there on Saturday looking for ammo for me. He picked me up some 12 gauge, but they didn't have any 9mm.

I bought a few boxes of their Federal .45 and noticed that they use small pistol primers. Just a heads up for anybody else who reloads.

Not sure.. I wasn't looking at the shotgun stuff since it seems that they always have some kind of 12Ga variation on the shelfs. If I had the time I would have taken some notes.

NP. You are right birdshot is always there, except my Saiga 12 prefers certain loads for 100% functioning.

I went back for more .45 today and saw a Federal 9mm/.40 safety notice at the register? I tried to look for it on the Federal site but didn't see anything. (wrong cal ammo in the boxes) so check your ammo!

It was nice to walk in this morning and be able to pick up .45 Winchester 100-packs at $36.97. It's been a while since they had any .45 in.

The Placerville WALLYWORLD has had a sign for the last month that the Federal was re-called.

I didn't know that Milpitas Walmart sells ammo. I went to the one on Mccarthy and they said they don't sell ammo. I tried looking at the sporting section and there was nothing..

If the Milpitas Wal-Mart on McCarthy Ranch stopped selling ammo that would be shocking. I have bought thousands of rounds there over the years but haven't been in several months.

Can someone explain to me why one would buy ammo in brick and mortar stores in small quantities? Prices are usually higher than online, you have to pay tax, the selection is more limited. Why not buy in bulk online?

Some vendors will not ship to certain cities of a state, in my case the City of Sacramento.

The City of Sacramento has a local ordinance that requires all ammunition dealers to keep a log of purchases, with the buyer's name, address, and thumbprint; and the ammo is behind the counter (think pharmacy.) Yes, this denies criminals from making a anonymous purchase; but it does force criminals to go out of the City to buy ammo. One of the unattended consequences of this is that many out of state vendors believe that they must comply with this local ordinance (according to CGF and Hoffmang with a response from the city http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/archive/index.php/t-246494.html , they do NOT) and in effect they don't sell at all to residents of the City of Sacramento. Some take it even further and deny the entire county.
