Sportsman usually carries Silver Bear, Wolf Poly, Wolf Military and Hornady in 5.45.

Academy is the only one who has Brown Bear Lacquer coated.

SGA does have the wider selection now.

30 is not bad. Yes better deals can be found but it sure is nice to have a local store stock 5.45.

...and it's no longer listed on the Academy website. Not a "clearance" but a "close out".

You're right - weird!

It was there yesterday at 8.99/30

Academy must be blowing through ammo like crazy these last few days. Even the not-so-special priced ammo is selling out.

I don't think they would take the time to develop new boxes for it if it was a closeout.

My local Academy here in San Antonio has Monarch 5.45x39 for $6.48 a box. They did have a clearance tag under the normal price.

I also found a single box at my local Academy for that price. A few other local stores had a few boxes still in the system. Might hit them up if I'm in those parts of town soon.

Are these the older (reddish) box or newer (blk/wht/yellow) box?

Just spoke with someone with Academy's Customer Service; she claims it is not discontinued, they are just temporarily out of stock.

The boxes I purchased are the new white, black and yellow colors, 60gr FMJBT. I was told they are getting ammo shipments every day and to check back if I was looking for more.

Yep. Fayetteville has it at the same price of $6.48

However, their shelves were re-stocked sunday with about 50/60 boxes. Last week only had 6 boxes.....Hummmm?

Same deal at the academy near my work. Picked up a few boxes to replenish what I've shot recently. Would like to see it a bit cheaper but after tax is still is cheaper than any other new production 545 currently available. That said, more expensive than most of the 545 I've ever bought.

They probably had 50-60 boxes on the shelf and I barely put a dent in it.

My local Academy got a shipment the morning before I stopped in the other day. Funds are a bit tight at the moment, so I only picked up five more boxes of the stuff.

Has anyone chrono'd it recently?

I am paying a visit to one of my locations tomorrow as well. Although I do not own a 74 yet, I need to start stacking now while the price is right.
