Default Which Ammo sites to avoid?

I was going to order some ammo online. I know there are some websites that have treated Calgunners and or the general community poorly and want to make sure they do not end up with my money.

Any websites I should boycott? Or, any websites that people consider good to support for various reasons?

Gunbroker.com
The prices there make CTD look good

I value my brother GWs opinion, but Ive gotten amazing ammo deals on Gunbroker.com. You have to know the market and be aggressive in your search

you have an apparent calguns member who is committing fraud against other members. He goes by tomcat4t4@gmail,com. I paid him for antique ammo on 11/6 through a money service (square.com) and he is not answering me and i have not received any ammo. I am filing a complaint with his money service and he is supposed to be in southern california. he may also go under tomnow4t4 but i can not be sure. He had me send the money to a woman named johnson on the service. Be very careful and I may have learned a hard lesson but the rest of you need to be careful. I am resisting going to DOJ or filing a complaint involving calguns because i do not want to ruin this site for others. So any help you can give me i would appreciate to keep this among us. The amount sent was significant and i can be reached at jrp1947@aol.com Thank you

square.com expressly prohibits firearms and ammo transactions. Contact them and have them reverse the transaction.
You should have known better, but get your money back.

Cheaper than dirt all the way, not sure if they sell to us though. I think you'd have better success asking about which sites do business with Californians. At least..... That's where I run into most of my headaches.

There was a post a a while back on ammo vendors that are CA friendly, though it may have been for COE/FFL card holders.

I think there were a couple of others...I'll see if I can find the using the search, which is hit and miss.

These may not apply to OP's question. Probably not much help.

If ammo wasnt a part of this question, it would make more sense. Right now ammo is basically Gold, and to find any at a good price would instantly make that website worth buying from. But thats not gonna happen.

That's a given. Wouldn't buy any of their other products, either!

Just my $0.02 but make a profile in every vendor you want to buy at (filtering on which ship to CA FFL will narrow things down) so you are ready when the cartridges you want come back in stock. You’ll have less than 5min to buy if the prices are close to pre covid

Avoid at all costs:

CDT-Cheaper Than dirt - basically dirt human beings. Never buy anything from CDT. Ever.

LAX Ammo - they will rip you off any way they can. They'll sell you destroyed boxes packed into other outer boxes that arrive seemingly undamaged. They will then claim it was 'shipping damage'. Then if you spend the time to actually count them, which of course they went to great lengths specifically to avoid happening, you'll find the round count at least twenty percent light. LAX ammo are crooks/thieves.
