    Bulk ammo purchase?

    I've looked back through old posts to find where people buy larger quantities of ammo, but the places I've found and checked weren't that different from buying 100 round boxes at Wally World. Is there any price advantage to buying larger quantities? It seems if I buy off the internet S/H will eat up most of the savings. BTW, I would consider 500 - 1,000 rounds to be a bulk purchase. Am I missing a bargain somewhere?

    Thanks,

    Darren

    Not in todays market,several years ago ammo deals were good,I bought 1320 rounds of .308 ammo for 120.00 shipped,not today,I bought 1000 rounds .223 120.00 shipped but not today.I do not believe you will find any ammo deals,unless you buy wolf or magtech and even then not so much.I turned to reloading over 3 years ago when I saw warning signs and now reload for about 5 cents a round of most pistol calibres and about 15 cents for 223 ammo

    Maybe no longer a saving, but in my area I can't find ammo at my local Walmart, and at least I will have ammo by buying in bulk on line. And, it is much cheaper then at my local gun shops.

    500-1000 is not bulk ammo So do not expect to get much of a discount on that quantity. I generally buy 9mm ball 10,000-20,000 rounds at a time. That quantity usually gets me $3-4.00 a hundred discount

    Jeebus, what are you doing with 20K rounds of target ammo? Do you buy that amount regularly, how often do you shoot?

    I generally shoot 300 rounds a week in the winter and 8-900 in the summer. So it really does not take to long to burn through a bunch of ammo.
    right now I have 35,000 rounds in stock.

    I just ordered some good Italian 12 gauge shotgun shells (a case) from www.jgsales.com in Prescott, AZ. At least it is convenient to come to your door.

    I buy 1000 rounds at a time and it saves me money over Wally World. Maybe prices are higher now because of short supply but I checked 5 on-line sources and all were less than retail.

    Depending on the ammo you can save quite a bit on bulk ordered out of state (no tax). I usually get together with some buddies and split the order up.
