Default Best place to buy bulk ammo???

I haven't been shooting much in the last several years but am starting to shoot more now. I really don't have the time to invest in a reloading setup, so I try to just buy bulk ammo. I always have people willing to go in with me to buy relatively large bulk ammo if it saves money. However, it's been at least 3 years since I've purchased any bulk ammo. I used to get some decent deals from a place called Lippman Enterprises when I bought bulk 9, 40 and 45 ammo. However, it appears that they no longer are in business or don't sell bulk ammo anymore.

Bob had done a great job of posting various sites for firearms, but I don't see any thread listing good places to purchase bulk ammo online. Anybody have any suggestions? After my son came home for Christmas break and shot up about 1500 rounds of my .223 with his friends I just about laid an egg after seeing how much that ammo has gone up in the last 3-5 years! Anyway, my full autos are all 9mm, so I need to buy it in bulk and it needs to be decent quality. I also seem to shoot quite a bit of .40 and .45ACP among others. Any suggestions? Many thanks in advance for help.

Thanks Big Dog! I've been all over those sites and an taking notes. I'll probably make one of them relatively happy sometime next week.

while you're out looking, keep an eye out for winchester ranger pistol ammo -- the .40 S&W is east to find, but the 9 and .45 is more difficult and $$. It's good stuff, however. (boxes are labeled LOE, but that's just Winchester trying to CTA)

I've searched various websites and none of them can beat Wal-Mart. I hate going to that store so I just send the wife!!! She just picked me up a box of 100 Winchester 115 grain target ammo for $16.88. I think the 230 grain .45 ACP were $28.?? for 100 and 230 grain JHP were $32.?? (these were Remington). The Remington .223 55 grain were $7.?? for 20 rounds. I did see that the Sportsmansguide had a really good price on some Wolf ammo. I did notice that the prices do seem to be going down a little more than before.

natchez beats Wal-mart on some of that.
sportsman's guide has been pretty iffy pricewise lately, but at times they have deals that are very hard to beat.

Bragg Blvd in Fayettville, N.C.

Ever drive by, stop in at some of the shops and have a wadd of cash, no internet sales and no advertising.

Aim Surplus has some good prices. 223 - 200 rounds for $67. Cheapest I've found it, but it's a brand I've never heard of before.

Has anyone shot any 223 Wolf ammo? 223 has gone up so much in the last 5 years it's crazy. I've never shot any of the cheap Wolf steel cased ammo in 223, but my machine guns digest the stuff in 9mm.

I've used a lot of it (mainly in, .223, 9mm and .45).

It is dirty but it fires fine. I actually think the .223 fires better than the pistol ammo.

Sig Forum members hate it, Taurus shooters love it, go figure .....

Frankly, I won't shoot it (never have), just seem to hear too many unflattering things about it. Specifically light loading, squibs and filthy.

Over the last 6 months I've shot CCI Blazer (alum), American Eagle, WWB, Remington, S&B, Federal & Fiocchi .................

I prefer Blazer and Fiocchi for practice, they always appear to have a crisp, sharp report. The guns cleanup well after also.

Federal Hydra-Shock is in the gun after practice ...........

Haven't had much problems other than filthy. My FIL comes over and he shoots either American Eagle or WWB. He seems to have as many, if not more problems with squibs, light loading or FTE's than I do with the Wolf (shooting identical pistols and even swapping pistols). I don't recall having any issues with the rifle ammo and have had zero FTF's or FTE's.

Now, it's been many years since I've bought the Wolf. My cache of it is probably 9-10 years old. I wonder if their manufacturing has changed over the years, for the worse.

I wouldn't use/trust the Wolf for anything other than target shooting but at least when I bought it, the price couldn't be touched by any other manufacturer. As I recall, I was getting 1,000 rounds of 9mm for about $89. The .223 was about $119.

Wolf ammo is a pain to shoot. I shot some of the .223 in my AR-15 and that red crap around the primer gummed stuff up inside and was a real pain to clean. Wolf ammo is one of the ammo's listed on the card I got with my AR-15 that was test fired through their guns. After I use up what I have left that is it for me on Wolf ammo.

On a side note if you are looking for any nice magazines for an AR-15, check these out and notice the shipping price.

Took awhile to sink in, you ain't bought ammo for some time have you Zoomer ......

Good deal on a case of 9mm (not Wolf) is $175 for 9mm, $280 for .45 and $330 for .223 ..............

Howdy! DesertDave here (newbie in AZ).....I'm finding 9mm Winchester White Box (WWB)-bulk 100 loose rounds ($20.97) & .40 S&W in Blazer Brass for $12.47/50. (Your mileage may vary).....At WallyWorld. Let your fingers do the walking>>>Call your closest store, ask for sporting goods. Our store will hold fopr you for up to an hour, if you are on a first-name basis with the guy/gal there. Our trucks come in at 3-6 PM local, they have it out on the floor by 8.....Get your a** in there and bag it. They are the cheapest for those calibers here and NO warehouse I checked has .380 or 9 mm.....Period!

Welcome to the forum. How about you start a thread in the Introductions section of the forum and tell us a little about yourself.

I haven't been in a store shopping for ammo as I'm not buying at these highly inflated prices but the online stores are going wild with their pricing. I've read where places like Cheaper Than Dirt and Gander Mountain have prices so high that people think they're gouging.
