I just got myself a 1000 round box of Federal for $380 shipped. Wolf ammo starts at $249

Why so cheap though? I thought this is the price people pay when doing a group buy..

I havent checked ammo prices in about a year myself.
I can definitely use/need more, but I keep telling myself to learn to reload - and buy that damn dillon ive been putting off.

Thats my excuse for not purchasing ammo :D

Whats this BS about being 21 years old to purchase rifle ammo?

The funny thing about stores not allowing you to buy pistol ammo until you are 21 is this...

The law (I believe) says that you have to be 18 years old to buy ammo FOR a rifle (not rifle ammo) and 21 years old to buy ammo FOR a pistol (not pistol ammo). So, technically, you should be able to buy .45ACP at 18 if it is for your carbine (or HK USC). I think most stores don't let you buy pistol calibers if you aren't 21 to cover their behinds from any liability. The Walmart in Mountain View usually has this one guy running the sporting goods section and he won't even sell you .22lr ammo if you aren't 21 because it could be used in a pistol. You can try telling him that you are buying it for a rifle and that the caliber is .22 long RIFLE, but that won't change his mind. I know you could use it in a pistol, but if they believe you are going to use the cartridge for a rifle, they have plausible deniability (I think). Now, if you go to the Walmart in Gilroy (I was driving through there one day), they are more knowledgeable on the matter. I explained that 9mm was for my 9mm carbine, and they sold it to me without a hitch.

Man, that turned into a rant...

Buy components NOW.
It's costing almost $150 to reload 1000 rounds of 223 these days.
The components just keep going up and up.
I remember the good ole days when it was under $75 per 1000... :mad:

reloading would be nice, getting started etc seems to take alot of time of research etc.. dies, presses, powder, the right amout, so on. would be great to have someone to actually show you and teach you.

You are so right - reloading isn't as cheap as it used to be, anymore. Beats paying retail prices for factory ammo, but it's not cheap, that's for sure.

Ok, these look like good prices. Can someone tell me what's the difference between Federal American Eagle, PMC Bronze, Winchester Q3131, and PRVI Partizan? They're all about the same price except the Winchester is more. Which is good for accurate, reliable ammo?

The shipping makes it cost more in the end.

Can't beat a $10 flat rate except for ammoman with his free shipping!
