This can only be a good thing, right? If people share, then those places stay in business.

Please show vendor sites, not search engines.

I'll start with who got a lot of my business over the past three months:

....1) Palmetto Start Armory (http://palmettostatearmory.com/index.php/)
....2) SGAmmo (http://www.sgammo.com/)
....3) Cheaper Than Dirt (http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/)
....4) Natchez Shooters Supplies (http://www.natchezss.com/)
....5) Widener's (www.wideners.com/)
....

My reloading bench is my source for centerfire ammo.

For 22LR target/match ammo, SGammo.com is my favorite. Good customer service and fast shipping. :)

Love Ammo Bros & Turners but there's a good amount of times when even with shipping charges, it's lower than them.

Watch the sales, particularly the free/reduced shipping and you will beat Turners and Ammo Bros everytime.

I even check Cabelas and Bass Pro online from time to time, particularly Cabelas. Even though the ammo is a touch more expensive than other places if you get a $5 shipping deal, plus you don't pay sales tax, and you'll end up getting a better per round deal.

www.Grafs.com - $6 shipping, no matter how big/heavy.

www.freedommunitions.com - All made by them and reloads are available. All made in USA

Reeds, BulletsNBrass, and Castellos has gotten 90% of my business for the past year.

I reload too, but rather than post snarky comments about me, me, me I shall follow the spirit of the thread and post where I buy my components.

Cause I dont care if wideners is here or not, but I DO want Reeds, GBB, and Castello to stick around.

Buy local!

I get my components mostly from Blueline Ammo in Ventura, when Im taking others shooting, Ill have them either pick up some PMC from PSA if there is enough planning time or give me money for components

I get most of my ammo from my reloading bench in my garage. Sometimes I will buy ammo from Walmart. Even less often from Midway for premium defense ammo.

Walmart ammo goes on sale? I thought it's more like, Walmart ammo is in stock vs. out of stock.

Anyway, at least here they've jacked up the price of ammo to the point where I don't buy.

Good one! :D 1-3 are same here. For #4 and #5, here's my choices.

4.) Wal-Mart (for .22LR)
5.) Gun shows, if it's for 7.62x54R, for which unprimed brass is normally kinda pricey (Norma/Lapua). You can usually find Prvi Partizan at the shows, and Prvi's good stuff.

1) SGammo.com
2) PSA
3) Walmart for .22lr, 9mm bulk pack and bulk pack of general purpose shotshells
4) Turner's when on sale
5) Bass Pro Shop in Rancho..when on Sale

Tried Freedommunitions re-manufactured 5.56, didn't care for it..too many dented cases and seamed to be not as powerful as factory new xm193..at a price point I will wait for new factory loaded .223 ammo or xm193 to go on sale.

I did notice the dented cases on the reman Blaster ammo. However it seemed to function fine, and I didn't notice any apparent lack of power. Not as cheap as it used to be sadly.

Ammoman was great but no deliveries to CA. None of the dot coms can ship ammo to CA except in state?

Walmart and Turners.

False.
I order ammo online all the time from out of state. There are some cities that will not allow ammo to be shipped to them, but the state allows it.

Sorry I forgot to specify. He sells mostly reloading components. He has a glass case that has a few ammo, I'm not sure how deep his stock is on those. Next time I go I'll ask if he stocks them like Wallymart does.

I've been meaning to go there but my days off tend to be when he is closed :) I'd love to get some primers & powder when I'm ready to buy some. Does he sell powder for less than $25/1lb?

They ship just fine to my place in Ca.... So does Cabelas, target sports, and many others websites I use to order from before I started reloading

His prices are usually really close to the internet prices. I would suggest giving him a call before driving there, to make sure he has what you're looking for. Last time I was there I purchased 4lbs of TiteGroup and some X-Treme bullets.
