I’m sorry but Palmetto State Armory charges my state tax and shipping. Their shipping almost made me choke, if it hadn’t been for the 80% off on a set of RCBS dies. Unless the sale is phenomenal or very small, I rarely use PSA at all anymore, just to many really good sites out there. Some of the better ones are, MidwayUSA.com which has $49.99 S/H at least one time during the week, Grafs.com which has $9.95 flat rate S/H on ammo, Creedmoor Sports who’s S/H is $10 for under 20lbs on ammo and even less for lighter weight orders,… Read more »

Check out TargetSportsUSA for ammo – bulk purchases ALWAYS have free shipping WITHOUT a code. An optional membership also allows any purchase – however small – to ship free if you are enrolled in this option. For bulk, a 1000 rds of 9mm Magtech runs $179, and this price is indicative of the relative prices for everything else on the site.

TSUSA is my go to vendor. Living in the People’s Republic of Illinois I had to fax them a photocopy of my FOID card. Only had to do it once, they keep it on file. Shipping is quick and I’ve never had any problem with them. I generally buy a thousand rounds at a time.

There are WAAAAAY better places to shop for ammo then the ones listed here. I buy most of my ammo from Freedom Munitions and LAX. The ammo is much cheaper than the ones listed here. Whenever I’m looking to buy in bulk I search the internet for the best prices. Don’t buy from a big box store as ammoland has listed here.

Correction: In CA ALL online ammo sales now have to go through a FFL, they can no longer direct ship to your home.

Angelfire does 7% off for Vets (you have to ask, though) and has some good sales and great guarantee on their ammo. They offer new and reman ammo. Ammunition depot has decent sales, but you can find better deals at some sites as mentioned. I used to buy a lot at Sportsman’s Guide (esp at the start of the Obama induced shortage) and drop by their show room in South St. Paul, MN when ammo got real hard to get (they had small lots too small to put on line). However, after years of shopping with them, they got out… Read more »

I have found that when they do the ammo/mag combo you tend to get the best deal . My bone of contention is I do not like doing the mail in rebate and that is most often a deal killer for me !

gunbot.net is a nice aggregator to use for pricing out cheap ammo

If you live in OK,or any surrounding states SG AMMO in the Best I have found,low freight,and very good pricing and fast delivery are the norm.
Ammoman.com pays frt and of course it shows in their prices but they are second to SG.
Frt is the killer, on many items esp when sales tax is added.

SGA ammo will treat you right. I’ve bought lots of 7.62×51 to fling through my FAL and AR10s.

I have looked at them before and find them pricey,Natchez used to be a great place but pricy and Freight charges stopped a years long relationship w them.

Last time I tried to purchase from Natchez, they said that due to contracts with retailers, they could not sell directly to anyone in Tennessee. Haven’t been back since – pretty dumb contract to sign.

Except the contracts they have signed with retailers, at least the last time I tried to buy something from them, prevents them from selling to anyone in Tennessee.

@JDL,I just got off the phone with Natchez. I talked to a man named Sam and he wants you to call him. The policy you described no longer exists since August. They now ship to residents of TN. Call Sam at Natchez 1-800-251-7839. Thanks.

Or Alabama, or Georgia, where I live. It seemed kind of dumb to write off three rather big gun-totin’ states.

I did get a Natchez catalog in the mail a week or two ago, so maybe these policies have ended. I always assumed that it had something to do with collecting sales tax. I will have to start paying attention to them.

I buy reloading stuff from Midsouth Shooters Supply, Graf’s, and Wideners.
