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 [Read More…]

On the .300 AAC Blackout

Sixth week! So, I’m not sure why but The Sportsman Guide has 500rds of .380 ACP for less than half of the other vendors with availability. It *is* Wolf, but still… Also, there are a lot more vendors selling .22LR this week. Prices are still a bit [Read More…]
