Default Academy 5.45X39 Monarch Clearance

Surprised no one else has said anything..after seeing Robskis slr104 video I'm curious what this ammos velocity is....I like it nonetheless.


Still high....noticed in store the other day..
asked if they weren't gonna carry it anymore...guy didn't know...
not good? Unless being replaced with something else of course..

Sgammo has a much better deal, especially in 750 round packages.

Yep, I only buy 5.45 from academy when it's 6.99. Not worth it at that 8.98 price.

Clearance usually means discontinued. Hopefully, no one buys at $8.98 and they drop the price to $5.99 in an effort to dump it all. I will be watching.

Yep. Not much of a sale there. Regular price is obviously too much. Sometimes these are $7.99....but when I've bought around the holidays and real sales they are $6.99

Clearance
Meaning... it's been sitting in the warehouse too long and we need to move it or we're not going to carry it any more?

My guess is that they need to move existing stock and make room for the "rebranded" Monarch ammo.

All Monarch but "apples to oranges" you show steel case Russian ammo and Brass case Yugo ammo. These always different products/boxes.

Yup..New packaging here too...They've moved the ammo around at my Academy lately..Rearranging it etc...Didn't have 5.45 for a little while I believe..
Wish I'd gotten some of the tula 62 gr. They had on clearance..It was down to like 4.28 a box...Competitive to bulk online prices.

ya I saw it the other day too with the yellow label. I laughed when I saw the clearance. I remember this shit was 4.99 everyday. Then they raked the prices after SH and been collecting dust ever since until they have their sale.

Hopefully, they get their shit together and realize people aren't going to play .30 CPR when you can bulk for much less.

Picked up some Monarch 62gr FMJ .223 in the rebranded boxes the other day. Any idea what plant this is coming out of? Tula? Barnaul?

Yeah, I just noticed that too. Very hard to believe that people cleared them out at that price.

The normal spring sale price for that ammo is 5.99. Thats when I normally buy a few thousand rounds from them.

Yep, hard for me to believe too. Sure some unsuspecting people buy at that price but you'd think most 74 shooters are a bit more flavored and know better. Either way, maybe it was discontinued as it's not even listed on the site anymore.

I don't even see the listing on their website anymore as stated above. Maybe they are just getting the new pics up? But that shouldn't take that long.

I really hope they don't stop stocking it, it's a large part of my rifles diet. After reading this I went to my local store and there was plenty on the shelves, both old and new boxes. Bought a couple hundred rds. Also asked the guys behind the gun counter why it wasn't listed online anymore and they didn't know anything.

Will hit this "deal" when it's around $.20 per round.

Then I'll get a-round to it.

Ok I know 8.99 is kinda high, but you getting 30 rounds, not 20. Plus Academy does have free shipping if you spend over 25 dollars. So its not that bad of deal. Just saying and its quality ammo.

I check it out. But I don't buy 500 or 1000 rounds at time, due to I have other calibers that I have to restock also.

Also Sportsman guide have good deals too
