Buying Ammunition Online, Our Top Ten Places to Sho
Buying Ammunition Online, Our Top Ten Places to Shop

USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Lower Prices, bundle deals, discounts, and convenience are just a few words that come to mind as to why buying ammunition online is a good idea.

Often prices at retail are nearly double the online prices, which, for the avid shooter, makes life a touch more difficult. Online sales of ammo typically help you avoid sales tax unless you live in the same state as the company itself, however, in most cases, you can save your self 8-10% on your purchase by purchasing online. If sales tax saving is not enough, online shopping provides much deeper inventory opportunities.

These days, and due to public pressure and anti-gun measures, many major storefront ammunition retailers have eliminated ammo sales from their operations. While this seems like a loss for the public, it strengthens the ability to support real pro-gun industry and 2A supporting companies. Here are our top ten online ammunition retailers in no particular order.

SG Ammo is another great place.
Target Sports has free shipping on case lots.

Doszap

Check out SGAMMO.com in OK.
Great prices huge selection,and fast shipping.

Dave in Fairfax

Jason, I use ammoseek.com to find exactly what I’m looking for at the lowest prices at that exact moment. They check all the suppliers, and allow searches with a wide variety of filters. They update the search every several seconds and remove items as they get outdated.

RicktheBear

And, it let’s you compare shipping charges, too!

Bob

SG Ammo has been my bulk Ammo connection for years. Lower shipping costs than most and good prices. It’s to bad they started charging sales tax in September, but they all seem to be doing that now. There are a couple left that don’t still so the total prices are better on sale items. “Prepare for the revolution”

Pistolpete

SGA Ammo online better than any one of these list by ammoland!!!

Oldman

agreed

Thewoods868

I’ve bought ammo from most on that list. I can’t believe targetsportsusa didn’t make the list. Free shipping always in bulk. And they offer ammo prime for $95 a year with free shipping on any amount and with discounts.

24and7

Some of those places shipping charges are horrible..

Target sports, CDNN and grab-a-gun are three good ones..

Eighty

Really? CDNN only has 26 different items for ammunition – total!
GrabAGun’s search is horrible.

MBeach222

SGammo.com, TargetSports, LuckyGunner, Academy…

JDC

Ammunition depot and Angelfire are both sources I’ve used in the past in addition to those already mentioned.

I quit using Sportsman’s Guide after years of buying from them either on line or at their store in South St. Paul. Their Buyer’s club has over doubled in cost since I first became a member. I can o to Cabela’s virtually any day and get as good of a price on ammo as their “5% off” at SG.

Ed

Ammoseek lead me to Targetsporsusa.com and I really haven’t been able to find any place with better bulk prices and shipping. Their single box shipping sucks though.

Eighty

Here is my search for 2 boxes of Federal 300B 180 grain 300 Savage. Prices include tax and shipping to Rochester, Minnesota.

Target Sports $80.01 Cheshire, CT 06410
Foundry Outdoors $73.68 Bedford, NH 03110
Outdoor Limited $82.63 High Point, NC 27263
Sportsman’s Guide $85.86 St. Paul, MN 55075
Brownells (Win 150gr) $89.39 Grinnell, Iowa 50112
Palmetto (Win 150gr) $86.41 Columbia, SC 29210
Natchez $98.86
Gorilla 3 pistol and 5 rifle calibers
Rainier Arms Nothing
Primary Arms Nothing
Sportsman’s Warehouse $64.14 Pick up in store is the only option
Botach Nothing
Optics Planet Nothing

Eighty

I checked a few of the other suggested vendors:

SGAmmo $75.06 Stillwater, OK
Vizard’s $70.81 Tamworth, NH
AmmunitionToGo $94.62 Houston, TX
Sportsman’s Outdoor Superstore $78.80 Heath, OH
Midway USA $91.31 Columbia, MO

MajorMike

For years I consistently find the best deals and quality ammo (every caliber I need) through AmmoSeek.com I recomend them highly.

Bill

Why leave out LuckyGunner, the best of the best? Order on Wednesday and shoot Friday every single time.

24and7

The shipping charges..

Darkman

I’ve also used Surplus Ammo.com several times with good results. Their prices and customer service have been excellent.

KDad

I’ve been happy with my purchases from ammotogo.com.

coonhunter

I also like Natchez and Freedom Munitions. rcorrino I believe Freedom is in Cal.

Traveler52

Freedom is in Lewiston, Id. As well as RMR Bullets.

Link

Freedom munitions is now owned by lax ammo.
Another fine place to order from.
I just got 300 rounds of 45 win mag from them.

Sam in New Hampshire

DO NOT TRUST SPORTSMAN’S GUIDE. In July of 2020 I ordered 1,000 rounds of Winchester “white box” 124-grain 9mm FMJ. Including just three dollars for shipping, the price was $241.48 — 24 cents a round. After a while, they estimated the ship date to be 10/27/20.  Over the next YEAR AND A HALF, they changed the estimated ship date to 4/25/21, then 7/24/21, then 10/25/21, then 6/4/2022, and finally — after I mailed a check for the original amount in March of this year — they said they couldn’t fulfill the order.  Translation: “Piss off, we were never going to honor your sales contract… Read more »

Arny

Exactly why I cancelled my membership.

Dry gulched

It’s nice to see everyone on here arguing about ammo instead of buying it when you could find it a year or two ago. Natchez is my go to. They have it in stock and prices are good. Hang loose and never, ever give up your guns.

Wild Bill

Or solvent traps.

Dr. Strangelove

I’ll bet that there are still a few bump stocks out there, too.

Ope

I’ve always got my best bulk ammo prices through Natchez.

Hankus

Gunbot.net is a good place to hang out.

Jason

I’ve never understood why Ammoland pushes the SCAM site Botach. This company preys on Americas first responders. Botach is ripping off your readers Ammoland.

swmft

amoland survives on advertising money ,so yes they take from good and bad you are supposed to check prices let the buyer beware

Link

I’m surprised LAX ammo was not on the list, they carry a lot and have great offers.
I got 300 rounds of 45 win mag ammo a few months back at great prices.
They also own freedom munitions.

Nightowl490

AMMOMAN.com
Free Shipping for orders over $99! Ducking fantastic and fast.

Allen B

I’ll stick with Super Vel for 9mm

Chuck

Sorry to say it, but my online experiences buying ammo were not positive. Cost Savings were eaten up by exorbitant Haz Mat Fees and High Shipping Costs.

Arizona

Left off targetsportsusa and a few others. Some of those listed charge insane shipping. Target sports is free by the case. Ammo is 100% more than it should be and was just 2 years ago.

Arny

SGAMMO free shipping over $200.00. But I have seen the prices be a bit more than others these days.They used to have real good deals before the sweet & sour sniffles. But then everything is crazy these days. And they got bills to pay too. I do like how fast they package & ship.

PistolGrip44

Most of the ones contained in this article are some of the higher priced ones. And Most charge OUT OF STATE SALES TAX. I can find much better ones myself, and no, I will not give you my secrets.

Dr. Strangelove

Well, la-dee-da.

Wild Bill

You could’a been a hero.

Ope

Bill, I was thinking he could mean to buy directly from the manufacturers, but with the exception of Federal and sometimes Hornady there’s really no savings in that anymore. That ole boy does keep his secrets don’t he?

Wild Bill

Yes, he does. Had he shared his secrets with this small but illustrious group of readers, he would have been a superstar!!

Ope

Bill, I can only assume he has his own reasons for it. Disclosure of that information would had made him very popular on this site.

rcorrino

Can someone make a list of online vendors that will ship to California, to your address, if you have an FFL3/COE? A lot of online vendors won’t do this even if it is completely
legal. The only ons I know of are Brownells and PSA.

TexasGunCents

Ammoseek is good, but not all inclusive. For example, a couple years ago Natchez had been on them, then were not. The big cheese at Ammoseek said it was because Natchez would not set something up like Ammoseek needed. Don’t know what it was, didn’t really care. Not my businesses.

I still think both companies are awesome and both are on the check list, along with a couple other search sites. Just be aware the seek may not be as complete as you’d think.
