    Question looking for CHEAP .22LR

    anyone know where the cheapest place to get .22LR ammo is online?
    is there such thing as getting it cheaper than the federal 550 box at walmart? I am looking for ammo in BULK- we keep buying the local walmart out of ammo and having to get it elsewhere which is more expensive. any suggestions?
    our one requirement is that it is plated.

    Ammoman and CheaperthanDirt are probably good places to start.

    Might find some good deals at Sportmans Guide or AIM surplus.

    even ammoman is 3 times more than at walmart!
    cheaperthandirt is about 1.5 times as much for their huge bulk packs

    Start driving to other Wal-Marts in the area....

    Wideners, AIM - there's a nice long list of places to buy ammo on arfcom in the ar15 ammunition section.

    I totally support that notion. I live in WallyWorld home territory and every one is different. If you don't want to waste gas---just look them up and call before you go. Ever heard of the 'bucket-o-bullets'? Nice bulk 300-500 round plastic containers full of 22lr--copper plated, I also have some of the buckets of 'golden bullets'. I have so much in the 22lr plinking department, I haven't bought any in a few years except my Remington 'targets' for silhouette matches.

    looking for CHEAP .22LR

    Every time I've looked, web and mail order was more expensive
    than wal-mart when all costs were considered.

    I have one more suggestion:

    Ask the clerk at Wal-Mart when they order their ammo, and drop a line about being the President of the School Pistol Club, and see if they can increase their order of .22LR

    Point of information: AmmoMan (AMMOMAN.COM) offers FREE shipping, so while its prices may be similar to other places, you don't have to drive and use gas, and (depending on where you live) you might not have to pay sales tax!

    Go buy a couple hundred rounds of .44 mag or .308 win...

    After that, ALL .22lr seems cheap :)

    yea ok. i have looked at all the suggested other placed to get it, and for what i want, walmart is still way cheaper.
    as far as driving to the next nearest walmart.. thats a 2-3 hours drive in clear weather. which we never have.
    thankfully my fiance will be visiting from downstate so he is bringing ammo up with him from the walmart there. after that, i think we will have to talk to walmart about ordering more for us, although i doubt thats possible.
    i love walmart and all (sarcastic), but they dont exactly have knowledgeable people working there, and doing something like ordering extra ammo i dont think is as simple as a task for them as we would think. it often takes a looong time for them to even figure out if they have any more in storage, and nobody has every been able to give me an estimate of when they will be getting more. ill ask though.

    Best price I could find is $160 for 5000 rounds of CCI on MidwayUSA.com - not such a great deal I guess. IIRC I used to go to my local Big 5 sporting goods store and buy 525 rounds for 10 or 15 dollars in the bulk packs of Remington. Do you have any local sporting goods type stores?
