Default Bulk Ammo

Hi everyone, so I've been ordering my ammo online in bulk. Is there a local shop that carry's 1000 round cases at a reasonable price? Or is online the only option?

I don't know about local stores but I use target sports online store because they still ship to Sac. 1,000 rounds of 9mm Aguila (115gr) is $210 with free shipping. If you consider shipping a box that heavy could be ~$20, then it comes out to $0.19/round which is very good.

They have great prices over the other store I used and free shipping for 1K rounds is awesome.

I found fairly good deals on some bulb at Armory Outpost.

Hey guys, are we still able to order ammo bulk online and have it delivered to our home address? I'm thinking of picking up 1000 rounds of HST 9mm ammo from www.targetsportsusa.com for $.040 a round. Just want to make sure there are no issues or things I need to do to make this happen (like contact fedex/ups to arrange pickup). Thanks in advance.

As long as you don't live in a city that doesn't allow shipments like Los angeles you should be fine

TargetSports has been great. Been buying from them the last few years and no issues shipping to Sacramento. Prices are very good and include free shipping with 1000 packs and sometimes 500 packs. They do take about 3-4 days after order is placed to ship and delivery is 5-7 days.

Good to know! So now my dilemma is... they are out of stock for Federal HST 147gr jhp (1000 to stock up for ccw/home defense) as well as CCI Blazer Brass 124 Gr FMJ (1000 for range practice)

SGAmmo.com

HST and Blazer Brass 124 go in and out of stock periodically. Set up a notification, and you'll get an email when available.

I looked at SGAmmo, but doesn't look like they offer free shipping.

Anyone offering "free shipping" has folded the cost into their price. Compare the "free ship" price with the add on shipping at SG(or other vendor). The free ship is often more expensive.

Doesn't seem like the case here...

TargetSportsUSA for 1000 rounds is $489.80 + free shipping
Federal HST 124gr JHP is .49 a round. If you buy 1000, free shipping.
http://www.targetsportsusa.com/feder...t1-p-3546.aspx

SGAmmo for 1000 rounds is $499 + $16 for shipping.
Federal HST 124gr JHP is .50 a round. If you buy 1000, $16 shipping.

That's why I said it's OFTEN more expensive.

The message is to shop the prices, and not to simply believe that "free shipping" means it's a better deal.

You also have to ask whether you need 1k of HSTs. Most folks buy less expensive ammo for practice. That allows us to shoot more.

If you're looking for target fodder and don't mind commercial reloads, check out bitethebullet.co out of Las Vegas. $295/1000, .223 (works fine in 5.56 chambered guns) Hornady 55gr bullets, CCI primers, double base powder, and NATO brass. $180/1000 for 115gr 9mm, the rest is the same. Free freight on 5k or more.

Bought .223 from them in June, I just bought a whole bunch more of each. No tax, no freight. Good ammunition for plinking steel, no issues.

I'm not saying you're wrong. I said that wasn't "the case here..." as in with this specific comparison and scenario. And I'm picking up 500 rounds, and my brother in law who just picked up a Glock 19 is buying the other 500. We wanted the free shipping so we kind of "have to" pick up that many, lol. The practice ammo will be Blazer Brass for 21 cents a round

Good looking out! yeah, I got the email notification earlier today. I ended up just buying 50 rounds of the hst 124 and 50 rounds of the hst 147. Before my brother in law and I commit to getting 500 rounds each... we want to see which we like shooting more and what our guns seem to like more.

Yep, good to test first. Somewhat depends on which gun and your preferences. I chose the 124gr std pressure for my Shield and Glock 26. Performance reviews were very good. Couldn't see paying extra for +Ps

Try using AmmoSeek as well. Not every sight is on there but a good majority of them.

Yeah, my theory is that the 124gr std pressure hst will shoot better in my P2000SK since the barrell length is only 3.26", and the velocity will be better vs 147gr... but then I hear/read that the 147 will have less muzzle flip and recoil, which may work better since the gun is smaller than my VP9.

I believe my VP9 might like the 147 gr std pressure hst more because it has the longer barrel, and the less recoil due to bigger grain and bigger gun will be a bonus. I mean, there's got to be a reason the Sacramento Sheriffs department all switched from 40S&W to 9mm 147gr right?

All of this is pure speculation until I actually get on the range and try about 50 rounds of each, lol.

Assuming my theories are correct, I will probably choose the 124 gr since I will be stocking up on a lot of Blazer Brass in 124 gr for practice/range shooting. So I figure I can practice the same grain as my HD/CCW ammo. I know the gr doesn't necessarily make the ammo feel and shoot the same, but I think it would help.
