Handgun ammo
« on: March 05, 2013, 12:06:55 PM »
I have been looking periodically for ammo.  Where can I get some decent priced 9mm and possibly .40 S&W? I have looked at Wal-mart when I am there, but haven't had much luck.  Where is everyone else going? I tried looking at other places but there is quite a bit of price gouging going on from fellow gun owners. I have seen $25 for a box of winchester white box 50 rds of 9mm.  Any ideas?

I think people are just paying the high prices.  I was in sportsmans warehouse last week and picked up 3boxes of .45 for $23 a piece. Not bad but still more than I want to pay.  That equates to $460 a case before tax.  I usually reload my own and have plenty of brass, primers, powders and bullets.

Sportsmans limited purchases to 3 boxes per SKU.

I will have to go check them out.  Any place that people recommend for bulk purchases?

The last gun how had plenty of .40 and .45.  The 9mm sold out very quickly.  I ha a friend pick up 500 rounds of .45 for $230.  These were new bulk in the ammo can.  Same price as sportsman and Walmart except the gun show actually had stuff.
