I need around 700-1000 rounds of .223 for a weekend long carbine course I am taking next weekend (Sept 6th-7th). Stupid me got caught up in the new semester at CU and neglected to get it ordered online, forgetting Monday is a holiday. Now it's too late to get it shipped here, and I'll have to buy it in person. Anyone know where I can do it? I'm taking a wild guess that when I try Wal-mart in the morning, they'll not like my idea! I live in Boulder, but expect to have to travel for it. Reloads are off-limits according to the instructors. Thanks a BUNCH in advance for ANY leads.

1) Ordering it from Cabela's and paying the overnight shipping fee might be cheaper than the gas you are going to burn in order to go far enough out of the PRB to buy that much ammo at one store.

2) We still haven't went shooting!

I would think that Jensens in Loveland would have it. Give them a call.

Also, Maybe Lexington arms in Longmont has some.

How much you willing to pay?

I have 1000 rounds sitting in an ammo can in the safe right now.

I will be nice and give you a deal since you let your ammo supply get so low and forgot about your course. A meer $999.00 if you want it I will even deliver it to you.

No I would try Jensens, Sportsman's wharehouse, or the Sew What store in Northglenn on 104th and Washington talk to Ray he has a guy some where. He usually gets it the same day if he doesnt have it in stock.

Jensen's should have 1000 rounds for around $180 in stock.

Tell Mike I said hi!

Thanks guys,
I went ahead and went to Lexington yesterday. With everything I needed, it cost me a bundle. The .223 by the way was 99.95 per 500 and a free 30rnd mag with every box. So I got two free 30 rounders out of the deal! Of course since I needed green follower mags too, I've wound up with a whole mess of mags laying around, to now include four more! Thanks, again. Im looking forward to this weekend. NW

hello enginerd. There is a problem with the gun club, at least for an official one, that the forms need to be turned in way ahead of time. We could still start one for 2nd semester though. In any case we should get together and do some shooting sometime.

edited to add: if you did not figure it out, I am a CU student.

I live in N. Boulder now and commute to campus. When I don't have classes, I'm either in the library or the AROTC lounge room. I check email often though.
