Bulk ammo

Anyone notice that most bulk ammo deals are not deals at all. A good example was today I saw 500 rounds of Brown Bear 9mm 115gr for $115. I can normally find brass cased ammo for 9.99 to 10.99 for 50...I see this all the time. Does someone know where the real bulk deals are?

Another mention for SG Ammo and Target Sports USA. They seem to have the best bulk ammo prices and reasonable shipping. Well Target Sports USA has free shipping, but a little higher prices, so they both even out in the end.

I've bought some bulk in past but you have to look carefully and figure out the price per round before buying. Those ammo aggregators are great for seeing whats online at a given time on a per round basis, but shipping can turn a deal in a different direction unless you are paying attention. In the end I've found that if my local Walmart has stock, its often pretty close to the best deals I'm seeing online.

For example, they are selling Federal aluminum 115g 9mm for $20/100. I've got all the brass I need for reloading at the moment, and in the winter I'm not going to be recovering many cases at the outdoor range in all this snow so who cares.

I've been pricing bulk .40S&W on-line and when shipping is added the price per round matches what I would pay at WW with tax, so I'll buy FF with cash and be done with it.

Here is a couple others. You can sort the results by cost-per-round.

In stock ammo, guns, magazines, and reloading supplies

I think ammoman.com is in Jersey.
I bet you could drive there and get a deal. Wouldn't hurt to ask.

don't forget this!

Hey all: Not sure everyone does this, but, don't forget to add shipping costs when ordering (very few are free unless you order like $150) anyway, if you find what you want at say 300 rounds at $.25 a round ($75.00) that is about 15 pounds, plus hazardous. so say maybe 20 bucks to ship. that is now $95 for the ammo or $.32 a round not such a great deal.

True, and when they do they are only down to where all the others have their everyday pricing.

I have noticed that by the time you consider shipping, Cheaper Than Dirt . . . isn't.

I stopped buying from them years ago. SG Ammo is the place.
