    Bulk Ammunition

    For those of you who buy bulk ammunition, where do you buy (websites/box stores) and what brands do you buy ? Do you shop around looking for the lowest price per round or do you stick with a merchant because you have a history with the merchant.

    I shoot the three major calibers (9MM, .40 cal, and .45 ACP). I do have .38/.357 and 380 but do not shoot enough of those calibers to be concerned with that bulk ammunition.

    I know...I know...many reload, and that's great. I have no desire to start reloading as my shop is set-up for mechanical jobs and golf clubs.

    Just curious to hear what you guys do.

    In the past, when I bought a firearm I didn't already have ammo for I'd just buy 4 cases of reloadable ammo for it. Except for 7.62x39, 7.62x54 and 9x18 which I don't bother reloading. My UPS guy used to hate me.
    I no longer shoot as much as I used to so it looks like if/when I die in the next 10 years my brother will inherit a U-Haul truck loak of guns and ammo.
    In thinking about this, I guess I need to get back into guns from my current interests in cannons, mortars and flare launchers.

    As mentioned Ammoseek is a good search site. Sometimes when I buy factory ammo I just go to SGAmmo.com. Their prices are generally pretty good their customer service is good.

    Ammoseek is good although you can still Bing it if you feel nasty.

    I also like Freedom Munitions and their "Reman" ammo. It's essentially reloaded ammo with once-fired brass but run on the same machines they use for new manufacture. I've never had a problem with it and the calibers I reload (.45 ACP mostly) doesn't care if it was already fired once. I also like Georgia Arms "canned heat" which is also reman in bulk.

    LuckyGunner. They run specials once in awhile where there is free shipping. Usually a good deal. Shipping costs are almost always a deal breaker for me. Buying locally and paying sales tax is cheaper.

    When I need to buy factory ammo I try just shop around using as many resources as I can and find the best deal including shipping. Generally speaking I am not picky unless it is .22lr, I stick to one brand that works well for me. Watch for those free shipping deals and take advantage of them to do your restocking.

    I use Freedom Munitions for my bulk target loads, I always buy their reman instead of new because it saves on average .4 cents a round and the only difference is it's once used brass but it's still loaded the exact same as the new. For S.D. or hunting ammo I use SG Ammo usually the best prices and they have everything, with a very quick order to delivery.

    Bought bulk for years. Friend owns a reloading supply/reloading company. Bought in case lots from him, traded with two other reloading companies before we became friends. Don't shoot much now but still buy case lots in some things.

    I have thus far bought all ammo locally or used some of my dad’s reloads.

    I found one of those drab green steel cases of 7.62X39 (steel penetrator) 750 round count at WalMart about 4 years ago. This was back when BATFE was pondering taking the steel penetrating AR ammo off the market. In any event that case remains sealed.

    Most of my FMJ stuff I buy at WalMart. But WalMart also carries the relatively newer Federal 130 gr jacketed wadcutter for 38 + P.

    I also buy my hunting ammo from WalMart - for my 30.06 anyway. I use Remington CoreLokt 180 grain.

    Have never - YET - bought ammo from an online source.

    With over 200 million firearms in private possession, in addition to a collective ammo round count of over a trillion rounds, it should be obvious that we in the firearm community and culture are NOT the problem!
