Buying ammo online

Postby GoesBang » Thu Jan 02, 2014 12:12 pm

I would rather buy ammo face to face at a store counter, but sometimes you can't always get what you want. Here's a place that seems to have a very good selection:

Wow...VERY good prices, especially for JHPs. Do they ding you on the shipping?

Holy cow !! Nice prices, especially for my wifes' .380. I just got 500 rounds of PMC 9mm - 115 g. FMJ for $150 (including shipping) from Palmetto State. For them that's dirt cheap, but I think this guy has them beat. I 'm going to give them a good looking over later tonight.

We've got a local gun & knife show this weekend. I plan on stocking up on some 9mm for sure.

My WalMart doesn't have squat. Shotgun shells. I picked up some 5.56 at Dicks. Independence (Israeli) for $6.99/20. My AR likes that stuff.

WalMart here has been sporatic lately with Pistol ammo. They have had 9mm pretty often and I've picked up some. They've also had .380 and I've been able to get some of that too. One WalMart here has .32 Auto that I might pick up a box of for my Savage 1915. Prices have been higher than a year ago but not by a lot (nothing like I've seen on line at some places).

I've also picked up some .22 LR and 9mm from Dicks recently. The .22 LR was $.10 a Round but that's less than I've seen on line so picked some up for the kids and their Christmas Rifles.

I found some 7.62x54R ammo at a LGS that wasn't too bad. New Wolf non-corrosive stuff.

I've bought some ammo on-line and had mixed results with prices. I bought a bunch of .380 and 9mm a while ago for about the same price as at WalMart if you include tax and price of gas to get me there and back. The benefit to that wasn't the price but was better selection. I got a variety of ammo types that weren't available locally at the time.

I did buy 880 Rounds of surplus 7.62x54R on-line just before Christmas. Gander Mtn had it for $129.95 for 440 Rounds (no can opener). Add tax and the gas and that goes to $146.70. On-line it was $179.99 with free shipping, a can opener and no tax. I did spend $30 to join their Buyers Club which saved me $20 on the ammo and set me up for future discounts. Since shipping was free I thought it was a good trade off against future purchases. With insurance and everything the total was $210.97 for 880 Rounds against an equivalent price at Gander Mtn of $286.38.

As mentioned above, shipping can make a decent deal a bad deal but remember to add the total cost when comparing to a local source (tax, fuel and time). Even a slightly higher on-line cost may be worth it especially if you consider selection and your time.

I've found these sites to be good starting points for searching on-line:
