Howdy all,

Since ammo is so scarce, I thought I'd post that

http://palmettostatearmory.com/9mm-ammo.php

has 9mm 115gr Brown Bear available at a reasonable (to me) price of $123 shipped for 500 rounds.

I've already purchased my allotment for the month, so go down and get some :)

My G19 eats these up with reckless abandon. Very tempting to pick up a case or three.

Thanks very much for the tip! I started with just one case, to try them out. A little wary of the lacquered cases--I'm not fond of cleaning lacquer out of the chamber.

Seems to be gone. I got a message that said something like "Your order cannot be processed. Trying to order something that is out of stock"

:-(

What do you mean? Why would they ban it? It's only steel cased, not steel jacketed or steel core, so no fire danger...

Some ranges don't allow steel cased ammo.

Those ranges collect range brass for re-sale or reloading. They don't want to have to sift through it all to weed out the steel casings. Same reason Angeles Shooting Range gets all PO-ed if you throw shotshells in "their" brass buckets....

AFAIK, it has nothing to do with safety....

Do they have free shipping?

You can buy WWB 9mm for less; just have to backorder it and wait a little:

Hiyall,

Palmetto State Armory is $115/case with a flat fee of $8/case (i.e. $8 for 500, $16 for 1000).

I ran through the https://www.ombexpress.com/ checkout and they want $20 for shipping.

Overall, the BB goes for around $12.30/box of 50, WWB around $13.60/box of 50. If there weren't such a shortage, I'd have gone for the WWB, it's just a better round IMHO. However, we live in "interesting times", so I purchase ammo when I can.

Wow, what a bunch of turds. All they need is a strong enough electromagnet, and it'll sift out the steel cases easily... Just take one, put it under the bottom of the bucket, then swirl/shake the bucket. All the steel will be at the bottom...

I just got mines 2 cases(WWB) yesterday, which I've forgotten about. I went to the local wally's world yesterday and saw they had 4 boxes of the WWB value packs so I decided to get 2 boxes too. So now I'm at 22 boxes, yay for me. That'll last me 2-3 months.. :)

How long ago did you place your order? Did anyone else notice that California is grayed out in the shipping diagram?

Thanks for the link. I have never shot any of the BB brand. Should shoot out of my XD with no problems.

Not to worry; I think that diagram only indicates anticipated shipping times and that CA will require longer than the 3 days. My brother-in-law placed a huge multi-cal order with them about 5 weeks ago when they offered free shipping and virtually everything was out of stock except the 12g OO and slugs which they shipped immediately. They shipped the Ranger T 45's about 2 weeks ago and 1 week ago he received his case of 45 230 FMJ. I think he may have received his 9mm ball this week but is still waiting for 223 FMJ and 9mm Ranger T. All of it is being shipped separately as it comes in and of course, free shipping.

Hiya SCMA-1,

Thanks for the heads up on ombexpress. Since THE SHORTAGE I've put various places on a www watchlist. I'll probably order from ombexpress when it's time to refill my buckshot/slug supply.

Be sure to sign up for their email specials; they seem to have their "free shipping" special several times a month which really saves you alot on ammo.:thumbsup:

OMB has a bunch of bonded Ranger coming in next week and it's very decently priced.
