Cheap ammo?

Postby GixerJockey » Fri Mar 09, 2012 1:50 pm

Who's got it? In good supply. Locally or online...

I'm primarily looking for cheap 9mm. I could use some .45acp as well.


All of my local Walmarts have gotten clobbbered for what I'm looking for. I just cleaned out the rocky hill store of 9mm Federal 100 round boxes ($19.97 each)

On the other hand... the Cromwell Walmart is stocked to the gills on .38 Special and .380 auto for anyone that is in need.

You grow weary of me posting this, but for newer members...
...the Old Saybrook WMT has about the best supply of ammo/reloading gear of any WMT around. You won't find .303 Brit Frangibles there nor 7.62x45mm, but they had two varieties of .44 Magnum (R-P 185gr JSP and Win 240gr JSP), two loads of .30-30 (R-P and Win), even a Hornady 45 LC choice.
Powder (Unique 1#, Red Dot 4# and Clays 4#), wads, shot and primers (CCI at $3.37/100).
Heck, I don't recall which store it was, but I once saw RCBS die sets on the rack!

Are you in possession of a nine x nineteen now?
I will have to have you sample some of the 125gr TMJFPs that I recently loaded up.

These guys seem to be pretty good. Their prices include shipping. I have ordered from before, service and product has been good.

No this was like last summer when i had my Ruger P95 which i traded away. I swear some firearms don't hold my interest as much as others.

Cheap ammo I go with www.sgammo.com if you wanna do the online route fast shipping cheap shipping and it always gets to you in good shape

Just for S and giggles, you remember what WM was selling the unique for?

So just doing some quick homework on the suggested sites...

SGA Ammo is significantly cheaper, including shipping on most products that I compared.

What other places do you guys use?

I've checked all over Cheaper Than Dirt and it seems like they've crept up to brick and mordar retail prices.

Sorry, these are more for reloading components, not ammunition...

I saw that too. I may give them a try too, I like to have several sources for anything I buy if possible.

Thing I like about SGAmmo is some of there ammo you can buy in a 30 cal or 50 cal ammo can so you don't have to screw around opening a spam can
