Ammo Prices: 04/11/2014

ammo

Third week of ammo prices! Next week we should have enough data to start generating and showing some trends and graphs from the various vendors.

We have also added a new vendor-Target Sports USA-which currently has the cheapest price on 1000 round lots of .45 ACP.

Again, prices posted are exclusive of shipping (unless the vendor includes that in the price). The number in parentheses following the price is the cost per round.

As always, if you have comment or witticisms, please leave them below. And if you find that some of the items are now out of stock or the prices have significantly changed, please let us know. Also, if you know of any vendors that are not represented here and you have had a good experience with, comment below and we will see about adding them.

    I think you could post what, in your opinion, would be the best deal for each caliber, performance/cost wise. That would really help new shooters who have little experience with ammo brands and such.

    • Doc Rader

      That is probably a good area for our readers to chime in on. This posting is not really differentiating on brands. My focus is more on volume of shooting rather than specific performance markers (which is more of a personal thing, in my opinion). I spend most of my time with a Glock and an AK-47, neither of which have complained so far about feeding really anything (so I go for cheapest in caliber).

      Any of you other readers have an opinion? 🙂

  • simmoc04

    i know this is for bulk but our local cabela’s has .380 brass cased factory monarch brand for $17 per 50 = .34/rd and academy sports has 50rd boxes of 9mm for $13 = .26/rd

    • Doc Rader

      Nothing wrong with posting other deals down here!

  • pdxbnohica

    I like the idea overall, but it’s been done better… This site allows you to enter in your zipcode and calculates CPR including shipping and covers a much wider range of calibers and is updated much more frequently… gun-deals.com

    • Doc Rader

      pdxbnohica, it was never intended to be a complete list. Gun-Deals definitely has a nice utility and croud-sourcing allows it to be more current. There are also a number of other search sites out there…

      What we are going to bring to the table is trending and raw data in a couple of weeks.

  • Alliance Ammunition

    Tom,

    We have more 22LR again and we just received more 9mm 115/124gr UHP along with 300 AAC Blackout in 125gr Match and 155gr Barnes for LE use. Please check back on our site and update this. We greatly appreciate the traffic and your site alone sent us so much traffic that at our pricing of $69 per 500ct 22LR, we sold out in 2 days.

    Thank you again and God Bless America!
    -Brian Tate, Owner

    • Alliance Ammunition

      As I have the Denton County Fire Marshall doing an inspection right now, it will be tomorrow before I can update any further inventory, therefore I ask that you not update our information until we can list all of it at that time. Thank you!

      P.S. Where am I to send you an evaluation box of our ammunition for review?

    • Doc Rader

      Super stoked that we were able to push some traffic your way!

  • Jared

    Freedom munitions has better prices on practically all of the ammo on here.

    • Doc Rader

      They do, and I include it when it is not remanufactured.

  • Limonata

    I hope you might consider posting a link to a Excel file or cvs file. While the information is good, it does not really show trend. I have been keeping a spreadsheet that shows the trend from week to week to see what direction things are going. The raw table is nice snapshot but does not tell me what is really happening.

    • Doc Rader

      Working on it… 🙂 Trying to figure out the most effective way to do that (not how the data is setup–mainly the distribution).

  • BattleshipGrey

    $60 for 22LR!?!? Wow. Just today I noticed my 500 rnd brick of .22 was about half full and thought, maybe I should just shell out the $40 for a brick. Never mind. Thanks again TFB for doing this foot work for us. Excellent idea for the blog

  • ATman

    I can verify that Federal bulk box or winchester bulk box .22 is like $23~ in Canada still in Good supply now if only I could get 00Buck 2 3/4 -3 inch 12ga shot gun shells that were not in a federal five pack for nine bucks a pack that would be nice.

    • Limonata

      I will would trade you my 12ga and 00 Buck for 22lr if you were in the USA

      • ATman

        I heard that stateside most shot gun loads are in supply but here in the frigid North all I can find in any real quantity is birdshot. Yet the manager of my local store has to store some of the 22LR in the back as there is not enough room in the front ammo lockup.

  • PuddleMonkey

    I’ve now spent $1,200 on 45acp in the last three weeks because of your updates. Damn you!

  • Wills

    I’m a huge fan of the Rem. 870, 20 ga. (wimp who’s had shoulder surgery) I’ve found the Winchester Blind Side, #2 shot is DEVISTATING as a home defense load. It’s available in 12 ga. also.
    I figure if it’s good enough for ducks it’s good enough for home invaders.

  • gunslinger

    thanks again for this.
    Can you add something to designate retailers that include shipping? just an asterisk or something?

    thanks

  • Alliance Ammunition

    • KW

      How do you ship and how long for delivery?

      • KW

        This coming Monday will be two weeks since My order was confirmed shipped from Alliance Ammunition, but I’m yet to take delivery.
        I sent a couple emails to the address that was confirming it was shipped but I have heard nothing back, I ordered from them because they were listed on your list of businesses with in stock ammo, not blaming just saying.
        Has anyone else had any issues?
        Just wanted to give a heads up to others.
        I have been visiting your blog for a while and have recommended to others.
        Thank you guys for all the hard work you do.

        • Alliance Ammunition

          Keelo,

          Thank you for bringing this to my attention and it has been addressed. This week has been nuts and my wife and I just had a baby!!! Along with my dedication that matter, just after the article posted, our US payment processor froze our account with everyone’s payment in it because they are owned by ‘someone who doesn’t believe we should be able to do legal business’. Unbelievable they never said that before. While our ATF status allowed them to release the funds, we were forced to move our processor to Canada where – politics don’t trump federal laws for those who are attempting to serve those like yourself. I show you did just receive you order and I will be calling you personally as all of our (four?) clients of that week that were impacted in that fiasco. It has been addressed and will not occur again. I will reach out to you by phone as integrity is foremost to customer service with me and I believe each of you deserve that same level of service we all once received decades ago. Thank you Keelo, for your business I am pleased we were able to get you a 22LR 500ct Bulk Pack for far less than anyone in the market! Thank you for your business Keelo and patience, we typically ship once your payment clears as only an authorization is placed first when you complete the order, to confirm I don’t have someone who is fraudulently placing an order. Once that occurs, I ship typically same week and takes about 3 days to receive that order as it did yours after you brought this to my attention as did one other client. God Bless America and all of you, regardless of if you live in a restrictive state – we will do what we can within legal means to ensure you receive what you a entitled to as a US citizen – no matter what State you live in (obviously certain cities and counties I must abide by, but I will not discriminate against those who are stuck in states with ridiculous laws that don’t help anyone).

      • Alliance Ammunition

        Hello Keelo,

        I did call and leave a message for you in regards to this egregious delay in payment processing and shipping. This is not typical and with my wife in labor, I needed to be there for my duty in that regards. I also left you my personal cell so that you will not be without contact as this again. I also left you a inside tip that I hope will provide some compensation for the delay. Thank you from the entire new Tate family and I look forward to serving all of you. Take care!
        -Brian

      ##### UPDATE ##### We just received SEVERAL CASES OF 22LR (that’s right, for all of you, our fellow neighbors and countrymen) on our last palate with the rare
      concealed carry 380ACP 88gr JHP bulk packs, 9mm 350ct Bulk Packs for
      $119 and even 45ACP 230gr bulk packs for less than Walmart can even deliver on! Tom R hopefully can update that list soon. Also, we shall have orders from PNW Arms and Remington on the 300BLK VERY SOON! Thank you all for your business, WE value the privilege of opportunity of serving every one of you, wherever you may be.
