I just got a delivery of 45 GAP from a guy getting rid of his back stock... the price on each box of 50: $16.99. How much am I paying for the same box now? $22.99

Holy cow! :ack:

How sad replying to my own thread huh?

I just saw what discount officers get for Federal Premium ammo. Now that is what I would pay for a case: $290/1000.

I just can't find a way to get that discount for myself, short of become a cop.

On the bright side, I just got 300 rounds of Winchester 9mm for free. Now I just need to buy a gun to use it in.

I've checked them out in the past and like their prices.
It's a shame though to buy from NJ since I think the ammo is made here in Utah. I would rather buy it off the shipping dock.

Does any one know if these prices are up for good or if we should see prices drop as production spins up or demand decreases in the future.

I am glad this topic was brought up because I was just getting ready to ask people where they buy their ammo. Obviously there are the usual places like Walmart, Sportsmen's, Cabela's, but what online places do people go to buy their ammo and is there any good places here in the state for them? I am sure there are a lot of people on this forum who would be interested in this.

The cheapest ammo I have found is at the gun shows. There is one in April sometime. I plan on stocking up then. Ammo only goes up in price so the more you buy now the less you have to buy later. :gun2:

I haven't found any online/discount dealers located here in Utah. The best pricing I have found is www.ammoman.com, as pointed out earlier.

I wonder what it would take to make a deal with the local Federal distributor in SLC. I'm probably the oddball when it comes to ammo, but a group purchase of several cases should interest them.

I doubt if we'll see ammo prices at the level they were a few years ago. If you check the price trend on lead, copper and brass for the last 5 years, you'll that generally the trend has been up. China and India (and other developing countries also, are increasing their consumption of these metals, both for internal use and for export as finished products. Add in DoD consumption anf prices have nowhere to go but up.

I did just find 500rnd of GAP shipped for $199. Not a bad price, but more expensive than AmmoMan by the 1000.

The Crossroads of the West gunshow is April 19 and 20 at the SouthTowne exhibition hall. I am planning on buy a bit while there. Last fall, Miwall had 500 rounds of 9mm, 124 grain for about $55. This is fired-once brass. In shooting about half that, I found that about 10% of the brass are not reusable. I had one casing that split its entire length.

This doesn't include the entrance price of about $8.

I reload too, but I need a supply of brass before I can reload. And eventually I need to replenish the supply since I will only reload twice, at most. I keep track of this with a mark on the read face of the brass.

I might have to take out a second mortgage just so we can go out and shoot this weekend.
I really would like to get a 50 BMG of some sort but the cost of ammo killed that little fantasy.

For me, there are two different types of ammo I buy: (1) Cheap, Plinking, Target Practice Ammo and (2) Expensive, Self-Defense Ammo.

I don't have much of a problem buying expense self-defense ammo because I don't really shoot much of it.

But, I do have a need to shoot lots of target ammo. Ammoman.com seems to have decent prices, but I have never used them.

Usually, I buy my ammo (.45 ACP) at Walmart, cause the Winchester White Boxes seem to be the cheapest around, off the shelf and out the door. Anyone know where you can find .45 ACP FMJ target ammo cheaper than at Walmart?
