I know Dick's is not handgun and EBR friendly, but what can I say? I'm a whore for cheap ammo.

Remington UMC
9mm 4.99
.45 ACP 7.98

Supposedly a limit of 10 boxes, but I got that price for 20 boxes. I also had a coupon from the back of today's Strib for buy 1 get 1 half off.

Grand total for the 1000 rounds of .45 ACP - $127.48, tax included.

Sorry, Fedgunner and QuinlanV, this is even cheaper than Wolf quality ammunition!

Just wait until you have disposable income and kids. I used to have time to reload too.

Where is this place that you speak of

Those are pretty darn good prices.

I'll refrain from telling what I pay for .45ACP though

Was that in Thursdays Star Trib? Did you happen to see if they had coupons in-store?

Thanks

Dpmmn: this is the old Galyan's stores in all locations.

Quin: Yes, of course, not all of us can shoot Hydra-shoks as practice ammo

LouV68: Did not see any coupons in store. Prices are good without a coupon but the buy one get one 50% is only with the coupon. There is also a $10 off $50 purchase that I am going to take advantage of today.

We're all hoping you'll get out of college, soon, buddy and get that first job so you can start shooting again!

Thanks mcnielsen

I just called the Dick's in Richfield. I asked the guy in firearms if they would honor the 1/2 off coupon price without the coupon. He said no at first, but then said yes and to just come on in. *The limit on the coupon is one box.

The sale items are:
.380ACP $7.98
38 Spl $7.98
9mm $4.98
.40 & 45ACP $7.98 although he says they are out of stock on the 45
Crap!!!
Link Posted: 12/9/2005 7:59:51 AM EDT
Nope, the limit on the coupon is 10 boxes

Just got back from the Minnetonka store.

14 boxes of .40 and 6 boxes of .45 = $127 and change.
20 boxes of 9mm = about $80
(the gal said I could apply the coupon on 10 boxes so total purchase was limited to 20... but she let me go thru twice on two coupons :)

They had plenty of 9mm, no .40 left after me and only about 26 boxes of .45 that I saw on the floor. No .40 in the back. Did not check on .45 in the back.

Would have bought more .45 at that great price but have nothing to shoot it with....

Odd...I just got back from the Minnetonka store and *I* cleaned them out with 15 boxes of .40 (loose boxes on the counter and shelf. He said that was all they had after checking in the back). They still had some 9mm cases left.

He said someone cleaned them out of their last case of .45 a few minutes before me.

ETA: They even gave me the 10% case discount on the 3 cases of 9mm = 4.49 box (they sub'd WWB for the UMC).

Maybe this is a dishonorable thing to do but I bought 10 boxes from Woodbury and when I got to my car it turns out he only billed my 42 and change after tax. I got it for 8 cents a round. I didnt go back in to make it right I just went home, I am chalking it up to an employee that wanted to talk to his friends and not concentrate on his job. Good for me I guess, gotta go to Bills and get rid of the evidence...

Diesel, you must've gotten the same idiot that I did at about 2pm today. The male customer in front of me was buying some apparel, including some fuzzy socks. "Those for a wife or girlfriend, I presume?" he asked. Then he went off on how his girlfriend wanted to move in with him, the ring he got her for Xmas, etc, etc. Made a normal 2 minute transaction take forever.

Of course, when I put my 500 rounds of ACP up on the counter, I had to say: "Before you ask, these are for my wife." (His jaw drops open). Nother 5 minutes of jawing, as I tried to ignore him. All the while, the guy with the nifty "Front Manager" nametag is flittering idly by... Anyway, 500 rounds out the door for about $32. My father was next in line, and got his 500 for $42. I felt bad for a moment, but then remember all the crappy service I always get there, and chalk the score up exactly as you did.

(Even better was the case of 30-30 I got a month ago for about $4/box after rebate)...

BTW: No 45 left anywhere in the Metro now. I picked up the last today.
Link Posted: 12/9/2005 5:34:27 PM EDT
Far left register. What can ya do I guess. I felt the same way. Now I am pretty good on .45 for a little while. Side note they had tons of Q3131A but 4.99 a box...not so good.
Link Posted: 12/11/2005 10:57:26 AM EDT
it was supposed to be about 8 cents a round, so you did just fine, FYI.

Really? Thats not what they told me. If I would have known that I would have bought every box they had. I was under the impression they were selling it for 7.98 a box, limit 10 boxes. That is like 5 dollars off their regular price. (that would be 16 cents a round, still a very good pricie) Dangit Wish I got more.
Link Posted: 12/12/2005 5:37:45 AM EDT
Oh, I thought you were talking about the 9mm. THEN, you got a great deal!!! I'm not telling when I see you at Bill's "testing" it out, OK?
Link Posted: 12/12/2005 5:44:15 AM EDT
I cleaned out the .45 at the mtka store, and the girl at the register gave me the coupon deal on more than 10 boxes. i am going to take a copy of the ad to gander mtn and test out their price matching policies.

have fun
Link Posted: 12/12/2005 5:57:36 AM EDT
Is this deal still going on and if so, where to get the latest coupon?
Link Posted: 12/16/2005 4:19:18 PM EDT
I was in there today (Bloomington) and suprised to see the 3 day sale is still going on. They are sold out of .45 but had plenty of 9mm, .40 , 380 ,.38spl etc...I picked up 1000 rds of 9mm and also a bunch of rifle ammo and slugs. Buy 1 get the 2nd for 50% off!!

This isn't the same sale as last week. Last week handgun ammo was buy 1 get 1 50%. This week it's rifle ammo, SG slugs and steel. Unfortunetly, Dick's rifle ammo prices are too high to begin with, so the sale just brings them in line.

Last weeks sale was so good because the HG ammo was on sale, plus the 50% special. This week, it's just on sale. $4.99 for a box of brass 9MM - 10% off for 10 or more boxes is still an excellent deal, just not as excellent as last week.

Dick's was having these HG ammo sales about once a month over the summer, but lately they've been more frequent. Interesting to see them beating China*Mart's prices on ammo.

Is ammo coming back down in price, or they just using it as a loss leader I wonder?


Link Posted: 12/17/2005 3:43:37 PM EDT
Well, I guess if Federal premium 300 Wby Nosler partitions at .68 cents a round is in line with everyone else I've been missing out. Also Remington sabot slugs for about 3-4 bucks a box cheaper than the competition.Value packs of .223 varmint loads Were a steal at buy 1 get 1 1/2 off.

Loss Leader is the best bet for ammo!

Link Posted: 12/17/2005 9:58:23 PM EDT
We all know we have to support a couple board members lively hoods! Or should it be said shooting habits! Well, I only buy a few Federal things EFMJ, HST, and 22 ammo. But, I support some other people I know I buy 3M's version of Bandaids!
