Ammo Prices: 05/23/2014

ammo

Week nine!

I know looking at all this data is just too much work for some of you :), so this week’s new feature is a summary table of the best prices by lot sizes for caliber. The vendor’s name is linked to the ammo page. It looks like LAX Ammunition is leading the pack with the most ammo at the cheapest general prices. It also looks like it would be cheaper to buy ammo in (2) 500 round lots than (1) 1000 round lot for some of the calibers (unless you get hit with shipping for each box).

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.

We have also included the raw data so you can run your own trends: Weekly Ammo – 20140523

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.

    perhaps powderless 22lr not for use in semiauto’s should not be considered a standard 22lr round and included in the list (see link for best 22lr pricing in 500 http://ammofast.com/products/aguila-colibri-quiet-22lr-not-for-semi-auto-20-gr-500-round-brick)

    • NotoriousAPP

      I forgot to make the same comment last week. That shit is nonsense.

  • NotoriousAPP

    Yo Tom R, what up blood…..where’s the charts and graphs? Visualization be my shit son!

  • bvice

    Tom it looks like you forgot to put .the-armory.com they’re cheaper on shipping and the ammo

  • Limonata

    I have been plotting the data for the last 9 weeks. At least from the CSV provided by TFB, looks like prices have stabilized and the highs have not gone higher nor the lows lower for the past 3 or 4 weeks depending on caliber. There seems to be standouts that are always the cheapest and those that are always the most expensive for a give caliber.

    If I take the average, there seems to be consistent those vendors that are between the high and the low some for all 9 weeks.

    It will be interesting to see if there is any change throughout the year

  • JLR84

    Why isn’t the caliber part of the table header? Makes it pretty much impossible to read.

    • gunslinger

      was going to say…

    • Doc Rader

      Doh, my bad. Misplaced tag. I’ll fix for future.

    Hit the LAX Memorial Day parking lot ammo sale this weekend . They had .308 winchester match 168 gr. and federal 180gr soft point (20 rounds) a box for 18$ I bought all I could carry . Got in my car turned on the radio and heard about Santa Barbara which made me decide to park again and go back to buy 556 , 9mm and .22.

    Fasten your seat belts but I hope we’re not In For another shortage cause some asshole was too afraid to spank his kid and the kid grew up to be a psycho.
