    Bulk ammo?

    It appears that bulk ammo - meaning, sold in bags of 100 rds - can be less expensive that the same ammo in a 50 rd box. Is there a reason I would NOT want to buy that bulk ammo?

    You would need to be a bit more specific as to brand, type, and source of the ammo.

    If they're factory reloads, then don't buy it.

    I dunno. I've blasted through several 500 round cans of Georgia Arms factory reloads (.40 and 9mm practice ammo) and they've been flawless.

    ^^^ What he said. You can get WWB at WalMart for a reasonable price. The only large scale operation I know of selling reloads in 100 pack bags is MBI (Military Ballistic Industries). Reports on their quality are all over the place.

    Look at ammunitiontogo or luckygunner to compare prices.

    targetsportsusa has some great deals on ammo as well. All 1000 round cases ship free. Not sure what caliber you seek but they have Federal 40 S&W for $13.95/50. WalMart here can't touch that.

    you need to take your calculator with you--sometimes advertised "deals" on bulk ammo can actually cost you more than buying individual boxes--just sayin'...........

    Cheaper than Dirt routinely advertises Federal FMJ .45 in a bulk pack of 250 rounds, and I've bought several boxes of them for 104.00. They've never caused any problem in either of my .45's. At 104.79 a box that's about .42 a round, which is about the lowest I've seen, and I have no problem with the bulk pack at all.

    I was told Sig's don't like re-loads, but I do buy my 9mm ammo 100 at a time from Georgia Arms with no issues.

    DG recommended them to me a while ago. They've been flawless. Just ordered 2500 more RELOAD rounds. I trust them more than WWB.

    I have a simple rule for dealing with reloads. Keep in mind no gun company will warranty a gun blown by reloads. If you buy reloads from a big, reputable company and something happens they will back their ammo and make things right. If you buy ammo in a ziplock bag at a gunshow from somebody who sells beef jerky and ammo...

    Of course, if you load them yourself and blow something it's your own fault.

    Reload does not necessarily mean bad, but plan for
    the worst.
    Try not to screw up so bad they name the screw up after you. (Station 15 saying)

    never shoot faster than you can stop

    even with factory ammo, it is a good practice. and how often do you
    think you will have to dbl tap 3 BG"S?
    practice often enough to know that you can, and practice lots of other what-ifs also.

    Bulk ammo buy a reputable supplier shoudn't be an issue. I believe some of the folks doing reviews both good and bad should keep their opinions to themselves. Remember your on the internet, there is as much bad information out here as there is good. Think about this we have a community organizer for a president. You figure it out.

    Take the above information for what its worth.
