Online ammo

Recommended Posts

Have any of you guys bought ammo online? I took a ride to bass pro shops in Auburn today and they didn't have hardly any ammo. I'd like to get some rifle ammo to do some shooting before the season but have never tried ordering any online. Does anyone have any recommendations for where to order from?

What caliber?  Gander Outdoors in Cicero had lots of 30-06 and some Creedmore 6.5.  Not much else.

I couldn't find any 308 ammo at all so it gave me a reason to start reloading again. This ammo shortage is real. 496772c419594343c56304ee0300edfc.jpg&key=2e4d49c7af0e2afcec56010be08aaf161d235a9fd88153f4474cda284369a1f5

Primers and Powder have been hit the hardest, but starting to see it in the bullets as well.

I bought a new rifle in 6.5 prc. I thought I might have a hard time finding the gun. Now it appears I might not find any ammo.

You bet your bippy there is. Pistol bullets for 9MM are just about impossible to find and primers especially small pistol primers are hard to come by. If you can find them expect to pay almost double what they would go for 6 months ago.

It use to be 15cents for 9mm target ammo. Those same bullets are now 60cents plus if you can find them. 

It doesn't help that people are willing to pay the overpriced price .

They reloading supplies eventually get short too. The difference is once your set up and have your stuff you commonly have enough for years and can weather storms like this. Just buy in bulk and forget it.

From what I’ve read, manufacturers have production runs scheduled out one or two years in advance , with 9mm and .223 being the top, dogs . Some Gov. purchases orders take years to fill , and some ammo is only produced every few years ! Odd ball or less popular rounds one may have quite a wait ,till they find it again .

For those who do not reload I would seriously consider getting into it. It does not take a lot of money to equip yourself with good quality equipment. Do not be afraid to buy used, it is almost impossible to wear presses and dies out. Ebay is your friend as there is plenty of good used everything at a good savings. 

Don't wait, be prepared.

Two setups on Craigslist in the Buffalo area.
The rcbs looks to be half price compared to new.

It also looks to be covered in rust which could mean a lot of clean up to get it 100%.

I have a Lee and am not overly impressed with it but it serves my needs.  Just know what you are getting because the expense of getting set up the way you like can add up fast.

I was just passing those ads from Craigslist along for forum members.

I personally have pieced together dies, scale, tumbler....a bunch of other tools and a Rock Chucker press from craigslist over the years and am setup to meet my needs.

So today I found some ammo for my 6.5 PRC. I figured there was no chance in hell of finding what I wanted at a dicks of all places but I stopped at the one in Webster today and they had 10 boxs. I couldn't believe it! I bought 5. I probably should have bought them all.
