Ammo Prices: 05/16/2014

ammo

Week eight!

Interesting to note that this week, bulk pistol ammo is trending down from previous prices at vendors. Only a couple of vendors have increased.

SG Ammo is showing the lowest of the week for 3 types of rifle ammo (in 500 round lots). Bang It Ammo is showing high prices across the board but it seems that they have more “specialty” than anything.

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 the other readers 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.

Tom is a former Navy Corpsman that spent some time bumbling around the deserts of Iraq with a Marine Recon unit, kicking in tent flaps and harassing sheep. Prior to that he was a paramedic somewhere in DFW, also doing some Executive Protection work between shifts. Now that those exciting days are behind him, he has embraced his inner “Warrior Hippie” and assaults 14er in his sandals and beard, or engages in rucking adventure challenges while consuming craft beer. To fund these adventures, he writes medical software and builds websites and mobile apps. His latest venture is as one of the founders of IronSights.com; a search engine for all things gun related. He hopes that his posts will help you find solid gear that will survive whatever you can throw at it–he is known (in certain circles) for his curse…ahem, ability…to find the breaking point of anything.

    Wallymarts in IL finally dropped their 3-box-max-per-customer policy on everything except .22. I guess that is more of a comment than a witticism.

  • Steve Truffer

    7.62 is now cheaper than 7N6. A sad, sad day.

  • Frey

    Unless Trop has recently (within the last week) changed their protocol, they love the “bait with good prices then break it off in ya with massively inflated shipping” tactic. Shipping to Arkansas for 1 case of .40 S&W was $58ish.

    • I hate that trick. I saw that a lot during the run on ammo—

      • sven_va

        Hmmm…. when I checked over the weekend, they had an instant shipping estimator running, and costs looked pretty close to actuals, at least to Virginia (lead is heavy).

        I would love to see more vendors Trop’s (and a few others’) lead and providing a way to see all costs before having to enter full shipping/billing/credit card information. Per-round price including shipping would be awesome, but a lot more work to generate for the summary.

        Should probably have lead with this, but this series is awesome–thank you!

  • Garret

    By the way, that lowest price .22lr (the 500rds one) is powderless. Just an FYI to anyone that might be jumping the gun on it.

  • lifetimearearesident

    TFB – Thanks for starting this ammo price tracking! One comment – why did you decide to track 300 blk. Perhaps you should consider tracking a more popular round like 30-06 or 270?

  • Jon

    I disagree with your .45 acp data. I am looking for the white box Winchester bulk 100 rd boxes. I have compared multiple vendors this week. For the past several months prices have been steady at $40/100 rd box but this week I have seen prices jump to $51.99/100 rd box. I have talked to a couple vendors and they have nothing to say other than “demand”. This isn’t the only caliber that has jumped drastically over the last few days. 9mm, .40 have both skyrocketed as well. BTW…a really good site to check on “real time” prices….www.gunbot.net updated multiple times per day. Needs a little tweaking but it’s a really neat site.

  • We would just like to add that yes, the ammo listed here is on the higher end, but we mostly stick to the smaller quantities for purchase (20, 50, 100 rounds) and have fewer selections at the 500/1000 round boxes. Certainly if we were to scale most of our listed ammo to the 500 or 1000 round amounts, they would be more in-line with what you are seeing on a $/round scale on these tables. We invite you to stop by the website to see for yourself.

    • BangitAmmoNick

      I forgot to add you are comparing frangible ammo to regular lead ammo. There is a major difference in pricing of almost double the price in most cases. All the ammo you used in this pricing scheme are frangible products from ICC verses standard range or even self defense ammo. I think we re one of the only retailers that carriers the ICC Brand. As I mentioned above, feel free to look at our per box prices and calculate that out on any brands like Wolf, Remington, Winchester, etc.. In most cases we are in the top tier of search engines are far as range and self defense goes.
      Just my two cents….we appreciate your hard work and if you ever need anything from us, just let us know!
