I'm kinda tired of paying shipping on my ammo... anywhere round here carry ammo at a reasonable price?
mainly 40 and 45 needed.
Link Posted: 3/8/2005 1:43:00 AM EST
WalMart Value packs for each.
Link Posted: 3/8/2005 1:57:21 AM EST
really? What kinda cash am i lookin at vs midway:
wolf 45 7.90 box
CCI 40 7 a box
Link Posted: 3/8/2005 3:13:29 AM EST
the 100 packs of .45 white box are a little less than $20
Link Posted: 3/8/2005 3:38:28 AM EST
that's ridiculous. I'm pretty sure the NRA can beat that and ceterfire systems will send me a thousand of wolf for 130 free shipping. Guess the answer to my original question is no, huh?

I've used Wolf before and can say yes Value pack (Win White box) might be just as dirty as Wolf but it's more accurate.

I placed 4th using Value pk 9mm in SSP at Shooters Paradise last week. I placed 4th overall and 4th in my division and was the most accurate shooter in the match.

guns.wicked96ss.com/20050302_IDPA_Results.html


I think Wal-Marts price on .40 Value pks is just under $17 (100 rounds) and .45 is just under $21 (100 rounds), 9mm is right around $11 (100 rounds)

Outside of WWB at Wal-mart, I buy most everything online. I get my carry ammo at VA Arms when I make it out to Manassas.

Yeah me too I like Winchester Ranger 127gr+P+ in 9mm and Winchester Ranger 230gr +P in .45 ACP.

Like others have said, the good deals are all online. There are occasional deals like back when you could get Q3131A really cheap at Galyan's but those are occasional. All of the local gunshops are good for picking up a box or two to try something out but if you want bulk it's time to fire up the web browser of your choice.

Besides GunShows and Reloading I find that there is no cheaper place than AmmoMan. He is in NJ and if I call the order in the morning I receive it two days later.

a lot of nice things can be said about ammoman, but "cheaper" is not one of them IMO

+1

I find that you simply cannot beat midwayusa for under-case amounts. (for +P HP rounds, soooooometimes sportsmans guide will have some good deals on magtech or remington personal defense ammo. but of course it goes FAST)

I'm staring at this ad in SGN for centerfire systems. Anyone hear of them, order from them?

He often is cheaper though. Obviously not always but often.

I can often find one or another specific round cheaper from somewhere else but if I'm buying 2 or 3 different types of ammo then the whole order is generally cheapest from Ammoman.

That 'free' shipping helps too.

Sweet.

Let us know when it's in.

To quote the movie ....

If you build it, we will buy

Or is that

if you stock it, we will pick up

Or is that

If I buy it, I will shoot it

Aw, nevermind, I'm all messed up now.

Seriously, I know many of us who will make the drive for the right deal. It would be fantastic to have a "local" source for our needs.

Heck, I'd settle for a source of crappy ammo with spotty availability.

Are you going to stock Wolf?

Black Hills Mk262 {5.56 NATO} cosmetic blems would be a good start.......

Unless you could get NATO 77gr Mk262.......

I have a thought on that and just to share is the only reason I will post this.

If said local dealer is selling a case of {insert your ammo here} for the same price as shipped ammo, via the internet plus additional Virginia sales tax to bring the total above the Internet price shipped.

I believe people will order the ammunitions before paying more in store, I hope we can depend on you as a supplier of ammunition rather than spending our money out of state.


Did I make any sense?

Wrong!

NRA Range prices for a 50 round box are something like $8 for 9MM, $10 for .40 S&W, and $12 for .45 ACP.

On the downside, Wal-Mart is frequently out of value-packs!

Edited to correct mistakes!

NRA Range ammo is D-I-R-T-Y........I won't use it.

Is this just new ammo (5.56)? How about surplus 308 or 8mm? Either way I'll be stopping by a lot I hope!

Someone was telling me that the NRA Range will offer case discounts. Who was that?

Some of the Wally-World ammo might be a bit tougher, but try picking up a Beta-C mag while you're in WalMart!

Anyway, we'll have pallets of factory FMJ 9mm, .45ACP, .40S&W, 5.56 and 7.62.

7.62X39 along with the 51

I don't know if they normally do it but when you're taking a class there they have American Eagle pistol ammo by the case at decent prices. They also had some Federal XM193 that I bought when I was taking a pistol class. I paid something like $160 or $170 for a 1000 of XM193 and I think $140 for case of 9mm AE.

Any chance for Surplus 8mm? Probably not a big seller to normal everyday shoppers but my 1919 loves it. How about 50bmg? Talon?
Link Posted: 3/8/2005 7:01:41 PM EST
what else? Hurry up Quantico Arms! I've got money in my pocket, a need for ammo, and a large fear that I'll waste it on silly things like utilities and rent. Seriously, for a couple thousand rounds of ammo, I could live in the dark, and shower with a jug of water for a month or so

I know I'm in with the rifle crowd here, but how bout some 12ga? bird, buck and slug.
Link Posted: 3/9/2005 8:09:16 AM EST

30/06 for those who shoot Garands or unconverted 1919's.
7.62x54 would be nice to have available. I never see it anywhere in case lots except at gunshows. That's probably better if you cater to C&R guys though.
Link Posted: 3/9/2005 6:29:08 PM EST
Hey Chapper... did you ask Faroukh? I usually don't waste his time with 5.56, but he seems to have some good distrubutors lined up for pistol ammo.

you know I never thought of that, but am going to pick up some stuff in teh next few days. will inquire for us all.

+2 on 5.45

As I posted in another thread.

___________________________________

My self indulgent bulk ammo request is that you sell 1000rd. cases of Wolf 5.45x39 60gr. FMJ for $110.00 $120.00 whatever.

I have seen it sell out long before anything else at all of the gun shows this year, that is, if it can be found.

_____________________________________

Personally, I am into instant gratification after a shopping experience. In another words, I can see myself regularly going into your new store and buying a case of 9mm, a case of 5.45 and a case of 5.56 along with some other ubertactical item you are selling.

I am getting an SMG, so that might be 3 cases of 9mm.
Link Posted: 3/12/2005 3:37:01 PM EST
OKAY folks, I'm wearing full body armor, knee and elbow pads, a nomex suit and a helmet so I'm prepared for this...

Is Quantico Arms in/near Quantico?

Sounds like they are good people and I am needing more 193 than I thought.

Anyhow, good luck and let us know when you're operational!

if you mean cases of 500 - 2000 rounds and up, well.... DUH! How else do you think we buy this stuff... especially M193. I would also be interested in a case 74gr SMK or TAP.
