I want to buy .45ACP ball ammo by the case. The cheapest price I can find is Sellier and Bellot .45, which checks in at 199.37 including shipping.

Does anyone know of a cheaper price for 1000 rounds of .45ACP 230gr. FMJ?

www.natchezss.com has sales on .45ACP 230gr FMJ

Federal American Eagle $9.35/box of 50
Sellier&Bellot $9.24
Magtech $9.45
CCI/Blazer $7.80
(non-reloadable aluminum case)

The S&B ammo here would add up to $184.80/1000 rnds before shipping. Add shipping and it'll probably add up close to the $199 price.

www.cheaperthandirt.com looks like a better deal with:
S&B .45 for $8.97/box 50 or $179.40/1000rnds before shipping
OR
Wolf .45 $79.20/500rnd case

Some guys are still selling sealed WWII ammo in what look like GIANT SARDINE CANS and swear they work fine.

The WWII surplus .45 ammunition was manufactured in 1942-1943 and sent to Russia for their defense purposes under our aid program. The Russians stored most of this and are now selling it back on the American market. I've used about 1000 rounds of this ammunition and have found it to be accurate and generally reliable. Since the primers are old, maybe 5% of the primers need to be struck more than once to fire. I've had this problem in my Ruger and Dan Wesson .45's and in a friend's Springfield. Also, the ammunition is mildly corrosive so you will have to use some extra cleaning care such as running ammonia based windex down the barrel on a patch after shooting. It's cheap, fun to fire and good enough for the range but I wouldn't bet my life on it.

I shot a box of that stuff Sunday. Only 46 rnds but everyone fired reliably without any firing 'weak'. I think it's $89.99 for around 750 rnds at Centerfire Systems. I'm ordering 2 cases this week.

If you keep your eye on Natchezss.com, -very- occasionally, the S&B will slip down to $7.80 or so. SNATCH IT!

I'm using CCI Blazer in my Springfield Milspec. So far I have fired 500 rounds with only one failure to feed. It's good ammo.

I got it from Natchez for $193.71 delivered to California.
