    places for ammo

    been trying to get to the gun range, twice a month would like to go more but the cost of ammo is killing me. What do others do? I've never reloaded before and not interested, just looking for paying less than $20-$25 for a box of 50.

    Do you have WalMart nearby? Also, there's any number of internet sites that even with the steep shipping they charge can beat those prices. 9mm is dirt cheap but if you're firing .40, .45, or magnum rounds then you'll beat it but not by as much.

    Best deal I've found online for .40 is Glen's Army Navy.

    I buy my target ammo by the case from here:

    Cheap 9mm Luger Ammo For Sale | Bulk 9mm Luger Ammunition For Sale Online

    They have free shipping if you buy 1,000 rounds. There are other places and I have a link to an ammo finder on my home PC but I'm sure someone will come along and post the link momentarily.

    What are you shooting? I got a .22 version of my most-commonly-shot pistol and can do a lot of practice with that, then a few magazines with the full size to make sure what I learned transfers.

    Ammo costs are the best reason for investing in at least one 22 plinker. I can't afford to shoot many of my other calibers right now but I can afford to fire off hundreds of 22 per range session.

    I agree in theory but I can buy a lot of .40S&W for the price of a new gun. Like my '99 Suburban, which was paid for in '04. People ask about MPG and I say, "I can buy a lot of gas for the price of a new car."

    Every week my local store (fleet Farm) for those in WI has 9mm target on ammo either $9.99 or $8.99 on sale. They alternate brands every week but I have yet to find it cheaper on line once you factor in shipping.

    Well first, don't shoot a caliber that is hard to find and uncommon.

    Second, purchase and fire a target round rather than the expensive self defense round.

    Third, buy in bulk.

    Fourth..., reload? .22 conversion?...

    Walmart, Fleet Farm or you can get a case online, other wise change over to a 22 and you can purchase a 500 rn box for under twenty bucks.

    +1 if your weapon is capable you can buy a 22 conversion kit which contains a upper assembly and magazine, just pop it on and you can shoot 22 at the range all day long, then swap back to your carry setup for CC ;-D i have them for my 1911's and glocks.

    Stop buying boxes of 50 and stock up when its on sale. For example: Walmart has 9mm Federal for $12.49 per 50 or $19.99 a box of 100. Its a no brainer, you save $5 a hundred. Check out sgammo.com, palmettostatearmory.com and ammunitiontogo.com. Those are 3 of my favorite online ammo suppliers.

    Just run down to the local gun show and buy those plastic bags of loose reloaded ammo from Billy-Bob's Handy Dandy Ammo Shack. It's good to blow, I mean go!

    Seriously, what caliber are you shooting? I reload my .45 ACP for @$9.00 a box, and I'm not buying components in bulk.

    Sportsman's Guide and wait until they have a free shipping sale that includes ammo.
