The REASON Walmart is always out is also part of their buying power"...

They make deals in advance using our "buyers" to do so... they look at all sorts of figures and try to plan in a "build up" or amount of anticipated growth in sales...

While this makes large retailers more competitive it can also hinder them in hard times when inventory is limited on the wholesale end...

With the Walmart model, it seems no one has the power to go to manufacturers and wholesalers and make short term deals on short notice...

No one seems to be able to go to one and say "We don't care what it costs today compared to our contract you cannot fill, but we need to up our order by several million more boxes we hadn't expected to have already sold above expectations..."

Or something like that... Then you have folks buying as many "3 box limit" purchases as they can...

I am still several thousand rounds of .22 down and a few hundred 20 gauge rounds low too...
