I will be going on a trip(work) next week and was hoping to get a battlepack of ammo to take and let the gentlemen I am working for fondle my AR and shoot some stuff, of course. My problem is I have only purchased ammo from gun shows so far and don't know where I might find battlepacks(not necessarily battlepacks, but that quantity) locally in the Atlanta area. There doesn’t seem to be any gun shows this weekend...oh, the horror!! As a last resort I can order online, but fast shipping sounds like a problem, dollar wise. Yes, I am cheap frugal.
I used up almost all of my ammo at the last two Atl shoots, not that I am complaining. It was great fun!! ::shameless plug::
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The only place I've seen with SA BP ammo has been Bernie's Sports Center, but he charges
$59 per 300rnd BP!!!!!!
WAY TOO MUCH!
Eastmans will be in a week or 2 as well as GA Mtn....I would wait.

I was in 400 Jewelry & Pawn in Dawsonville yesterday and they had 1,000 round cases of Wolf (if you like Wolf) for $125. Dixie Guns in Buford (near mall of Georgia) has 1,000 rounds of Winchester White Box for $180. I'm fairly new to AR's so I don't know if these are good prices or not.

You could also try Georgia-Arms in Villa Rica, GA. Here's their price list. The first price is for 500 the second for 1,000.

223 Caliber / 5.56MM
Order # Item 500 1000
G223B 55gr FMJ $75.00 $139.95
G223C 55gr Soft Point $100.00 $190.00
G223H 52gr BTHP Match $110.00 $210.00
G223M 68gr BTHP Match $130.00 $250.00
G223A 55gr Ballistic Tip $145.00 $280.00

I went to Wal-Mart this afternoon and was pleasantly surprised to find 40 round packs of Winchester white box 55gr. for only $6.99. That wasn't a bad price in my opinion.

Thanks BigDawg357 for the info and WELCOME to the circus!! Watch the Meeting forum for Atl shoots. I am not much more than a newbie here too, but don't hesitate to ask if you need anything.

So are you blaming me for making you shoot all that ammo? Someone said on another thread that Galyan's had a good deal on Q3131A, something like 160 for 1000 rounds. I haven't looked there yet though. Let me know where you find a deal.

YES Bushmaster-M4gery I blame you! You kept twisting my arm, teasing me with the promise of letting my try your Trijicon scope(Sweet!!), and then those dammed hOOters girlz. What was a fella to do but shoot most of his ammo. Uhhh, that came out all wrong...
I will be getting out in a bit to see if I can find some. I can hit Galyan's on my lunch hour if I cannot find something else.

Thanks all for the help!!

BTB,

Call Georgia Arms 800-624-6861(in Villa Rica, GA). They load an excellent 55gr FMJ in LC brass for $140 per 1000 rnds. Also load extremely accurate 55gr Nosler BT and 68gr BTHP match. I've used this stuff by the case and have had zero problems.

Shoot all you want, they'll make more!
