Default Handgun Ammo Prices

Wondering what everybody is paying for their ammo these days, especially in California. Curious about what would be a decent find online based on what you guys are paying.

For 9mm rounds, I am paying $0.25/rd for commercial reman and $0.29/rd for factory new. I buy the remanufactured ammo locally in San Diego and the factory new online. Can never find any at Walmart.

What caliber, price per round, manufacturer, and did you purchase B&M/online.

Wow, I guess my Wal-Mart app and Ammo-Can is off. I've been checking Wally stock on 9mm everyday. Thanks for the headsup, I will head over to Murphy Canyon now. I was there yesterday and they were all out of everything.

I got 500 rounds for $125, incl tax at Orca Arms. They upped the price to $130 pretax now though.

This is what I currently pay for ammo at my range as a member. Usually Fed Range&Target or PMC Bronze. There are daily limits and only members can purchase without shooting it there. It only adds 10 mins to my commute so daily stops aren't a problem.

9mm = .26p
.45 = .43p
.40 = .35p

Prices include tax since I am buying locally. I keep these numbers handy so I can comparison shop when buying online.

Gotta agree...

Been a while since I bought factory ammo, but last time I did it was $10-11 for new factory federal. I don't even look at current prices.

Reloading is about 10 cents per... so $5/50

Mr. Beretta,
No WWB at the Aero Dr. (Murphy Canyon) Wal-Mart, only a few boxes of 50rd PPU, bought three boxes at a gastly $0.315/round

tonyxcom,
Thanks for your prices, that was exactly the type of data I was looking for

ExtremeX,
Wow, I didn't know reloading saved that much bank... I will definitely get more serious about investing in reloading setup.

This will give you an idea of what ammo prices are.

I've read a lot of information on the breakdown cost of reloading... it definitely is not that cheap unless you are doing it for 10's of thousands of rounds. What is often ignored is the extremely expensive setup cost which offsets any monetary benefit of loading your own ammo for a long long time.

You can also do the same reloading math for yourself, you will see it isn't that cheap.

You can do the math yourself in fact:

I feel like I am in Vegas operating a slot machine when I reload, only difference is every pull is a winner. I would have no problem buying a slot machine if that happened every time.

But seriously, cost isn’t the only benefit of reloading… plus after doing it for a while, the monetary savings are almost secondary… I reload because I like it, I consider it a hobby, and in some cases (match ammo) I can make better than what I can buy in a store with a substantial cost savings.
