Sportsman Warehouse is on the wrong side of the country but sometimes beats Target Sports USA on price and availability or vice versa. I live in Upstate NY and I support ammunition vendors that understand the law and are willing to ship to legal addresses using patriotic delivery services.

i.e. FedEx to my door. God Bless them.

These guys earned my business over all the pussies who haven't the stones to ship to customers because of the NYS SAFE ACT vague and not-in-effect attempt at prohibiting online ammo sales. They also do not charge sales tax, further depriving New York State.

The hardest thing to find is reasonable 12g birdshot as I avoid Walmart and Dicks. There are no online deals for cases of $50 birdshot because shipping must be pretty expensive. I hate shooting Clays but I still do because my 80-year Father likes kicking my ass and that's great.

SGammo.com

They have consistently been excellent in terms of shipping time, customer service, and transparency as far as the ammo market and securing good deals for customers. They don't always have the lowest prices on any given thing online, but if you're trying to do a sizeable multi-caliber order they will probably always be your best bet.

Today it's academy. 20% off, free shipping, PLUS $2 rebate per box of winchester shotgun ammo. ~45% off with free shipping.

Ammoseek is where I start. Also, Target Sports USA has been my go to for .308 ammo. 6.5 Creedmoor seems to default to Outdoor Limited. Both companies have had stellar customer service thus far.

My current residence is in Connecticut, so there is a process for getting ammo on-line, and both aforementioned companies still ship here.

Back in the 2000's, I used Ammoman. Never had any problem, but then the prices just seemed to jump. Used to love Wideners, bought lots of IMI, then, same thing, prices jumped, I think they were sold? Now it's mostly SGAmmo or Midway with a deal, both great to deal with. Wonder what happened to Cascade in, I think, the Pacific NW? Bought a lot from them in the '90's, Russian 7.62x39 and .22lr Biathlon dirt cheap. Wish I literally had bought a ton of that stuff, a little greasy but shot lights out through just about everything, whether 10/22 or target pistol/rifle. Will check out Target Sports and the others. Thanks.

I joined Target Sports USA's prime ammo club and today recieved a "surprise" gift box that included a box of Hornady 140 grain 6.5 creedmoor ammo and 25 rounds on 9mm defensive ammo. With the 15% or so discount on ammo purchases and this gift, makes the $95.00 for a year well worth it.

Awesome, thanks for sharing, I had no idea they throw in some extras.

Someone posted in another part of the forum about sportsman warehouse Norma 6.5 creed 130 target for $20 shipped. Brass alone is worth nearly that. Bought 200 this am after spending an hr trying to find the same prime in stock. Of course I bought 200 140 eldm before reading the post about Norma.

I shoot 6mm Creedmoor Hornady 108gn ELD-M. Outdoor Limited always has the best price for it and their shipping is reasonable and incredibly quick. Ammoseek always has them on top for that caliber and manufacturer.

yeah, no idea but they went from usually lowest price or close to rarely if ever lowest price, by a long shot. i unsubscribed from their email feed they were so far off the mark.

always ammoseek but remember they don't pull from every website, such as palmetto state armory which does have some good deals from time to time (especially when free shipping with 10+ boxes etc).

With me, any week, it's Midway. I don't shop price, I shop convenience and availability. If they don't have it, I don't need it that week.

This week I finished a project building Garand Ammo, with over 600rd in clips and maybe more will happen, too. My Garand is a worked over shooter, and now it's got choices between 150FMJBT (240rd), 155A-Max(240rd), and 168FGMM clone(200rd+); whatever strikes my fancy when I pack it out for the range. Most everything that goes into my handloads comes either from Midway or from fellow shooters.

Greg

PS Some of my purchases don't amount to savings deals, but they provide me with an opportunity to restock my standing components minimums at convenient times so I don't end up in a pinch, which seldom happens anyway these days. I hold off my purchases until a great deal comes up and then I pounce. I'm winding down my handloading binges (I just tossed five empty one pound powder containers this week, IMR-4064 and Varget), and doing strategic purchases of desirable factory ammunition at good deal prices; IMI for instance.

Ammoseek and Gunbot dont query all of the online sellers.

You have to do the rounds at Outdoor Unlimited and TargetSportsUSA when they have stuff on sale plus free shipping. Otherwise they are normally not cheaper than SGAmmo including shipping.

There are also a lot of vendors that play the bullshit game of being .02 cheaper per round and then trying to charge you 39$ to ship it, so pay attention as the shipping makes any savings go away.

I usually buy from the cheap PLUS free shipping vendor or from Brownells when you can double stack coupons plus free shipping.

Well I posted and said gunbot.net and then realized other people had posted. So I'll just give my opinion. But I've personally purchased thousands of rounds from Freedom Munitions and never had a single problem. If you keep your eye out they'll usually have a free shipping thing every few weeks, father's day, other holidays, etc.

I stopped buying from Freedom when a friend of mine had one of their new 9mm rounds (not a reman) blow up this Glock. To be fair, they did pay for his medical bills and a new Glock.

Personally I never shot any of their new stuff just remans, and there's not much more they can do! Sucks though no doubt.

Freedom totally freaked out. Not sure if they tracked down & recalled all the other ammo from the same lot number and never heard if they had any other problems like my buddies. I'm sure their lawyer was seeing potential lawsuits.

They had others. A few reports of their 223 blowing up guns. I used to buy from them before I knew. They have had some financial issues, which makes me hesitate and you can get factory new from Targetsportsusa.com cheaper. Pretty sure I was getting 9mm from Freedom for around $0.14 a round 20 months or so ago. now they are over $0.20.

I did hear they were thru a financial re-organization (not sure if it was a bankrupcy - Chapter 11??)

I don't order much online anymore. Seems Sportsman's is pretty similar in price to most online stuff if you buy in bulk. Funny thing is the bulk I am buying from them is literally "kept in the back" and you have to ask for it. Not sure why they don't put it on the shelves. I don't remember what it is but I can take some pics of the box.
