Ammo Prices: 05/23/2014

    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 teaches wilderness medicine and writes for a number of publications, including The Prepared, a site devoted to self-preparedness. 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.
