Ammo Suppliers - Vanity
12/15/12 | APM

Posted on 12/15/2012 11:57:32 AM PST by APatientMan

I'm looking for good places to buy ammo. I usually buy at walmart or from Sportsman's Guide. SG had a lot of "Backordered - Expected Availability: ..." and I don't feel like dealing with the Christmas shoppers at wally world. Sorry for the vanity, but do Freepers have an good sources for buying ammo (and mags) on-line? Thanks.


TOPICS:
KEYWORDS: ammo; banglist
I'm looking for on-line sources for 9mm, 12G buckshot and .223. Thanks in advance for any help.

Try “Cheaper than Dirt” on line. That’s a huge store in Fort Worth, Tx.

Concur with all the ammo sources cited. As for your question on magazines, you need to specify the model of firearm and capacity. Battle rifle calibers (7.62x51 NATO or 7.62x54R or .30-06 Springfield) are usually 20 rounds standard and up to 30 rounds. The 30 round capacities can raise the rifle off the ground and may be cumbersome. Lesser capacities than 20 are also available.

The .223 Remington or 5.56x45 NATO (or similar intermediate calibers) come in 20 or 30 round types as standard. Magazines can be aluminum, steel, or polymer. Greater or lesser capacities are available.

Pistol calibers and capacities are all over the map due to frame size and whether the frame is a single column or double column feed.

Saiga shotguns are modified AKs and take box magazines or drums of differing capacities and gages.

Thank you. Beretta 9 fs, 30 rnd. steel .223.

By the way, I’m soon putting an ad in the paper to sell all of my guns - private sale only. I do a lot of boating and figure I might as well not tempt fate.

Why go online?

Most locations have a gun show once a quarter at least within 90 miles.

Go to the gun show with plenty of cash and buy what you need. Get a hotdog and soda, walk around and enjoy being with folks of a similar mind.

Good suggestion. The next one that I know of around here is in late Jan. or early March. Not sure where things will be or what prices will be like by then.
Thank you.

If you shoot a lot you might try loading your own. Once you get setup, you can load your own for about 1/3 to 1/2 of factory loads. Another advantage of loading you can control everything. different powders, projectiles and primers can and will produce different results.
A complete RCBS (very good) loading setup with everything you need (except dies)can be purchased for around $250.00 or less. Dies depending on brand can be purchased from about $30.00 & up. or you can find every thing you need on eBay cheaper.
There are books galore out there to teach you how and get you started. It is not as hard as most think.
Besides it is not only fun but you get a real sense of accomplishment.
