    Good, cheap ammo

    What is a good cheap ammo, and where is the best place to get it. I'm going to the gun show this weekend and am hoping to find a good deal on some bulk. I've tried the CCI Blazer Brass which seems okay. It goes for just under $10 a box. Someone recommended Sellier&Bellot. I picked up a couple of boxes at the local shop for $12 each. Are there any good web sites where you prefer to get decent range ammo?

    Check out Wolf at Cabela's. .45 will be about .16 cents/rd, and Walmart in CO is .18 cents/rd, tax, and shipping figured in. 9mm is the same price per rd at both locations. Winchester 100 rd box at Walmart.

    I buy about 1K rounds each of .45, 9mm, and 1.2K.38 spl from Cabela's about twice a year. With their Club Card/Visa I save about $20 per order.

    Ammo prices have been steadily rising for the last couple of months. IMO if you see a good deal, stock up.

    Check out Natchez Sporting Supplies on the web (www.natchezss.com). Good prices, even with shipping.

    A lot of people don't like the WOLF stuff, I shoot it through my G21 and it works fine.

    www.sportsmansguide.com has it and can be delivered for around $8.00 a box for .45. a little more or less for other cal. They have the other brands you mentioned also.

    I am always looking online for ammo deals but have yet to come across anything good enough to beat the local Wally-Mart on WWB in 9mm. Sometimes I'll see some decent pricing online but after figuring the shipping cost, as mentioned earlier, it's just not that great a deal. I can get the WWB value 100rd boxes at Wally for $11 locally....

    I find Independence to be quite good. It's a less expensive brand. If you have a Sportsman's Warehouse near you, it's about the cheapest.
    www.ubgholsters.com short wait times. Use 'defensivecarry' as a coupon code for a discount to your order.

    Sellier&Bellot @ Cabelas - Less than $10.00 per box of 50 in .45 caliber acp and it's better ammo than alot of the pricier stuff.

    I'm fortunate to have a Cabelas 20 minutes away.

    What caliber(s) are you looking for? Keep an eye on aimsurplus.com. They occasionally get shipments in from various importers. They recently received a large fiocchi shipment and have lots of cheap 9mm ammo.

    Of course - the only real way to do good AND cheap is to reload.

    Not sure if you have Dick's sporting goods in your neck of the woods...here they have good prices on ammo and you get 10%off when you buy a case.
