Default Turner ammo price

I am going to LA next month and was wondering how much are the ammo price of 5.56/223 and .40 ammo? Turners is like the Bass Pro Shop down south but better prices right? Thanks!

Kinda steep in my opinion.

Just go to wal mart. Turner's is usually 1/2$ more expensive per box unless they're having a sale or special.

I think you would find a better deal at a gun show. I like Miwall reloads, they have worked fine for me. http://www.gunshows-usa.com/california.htm

It's true that gun shows have better deals, but don't forget to factor in the admission cost. Unless you plan on buying other items, I would suggest you walk right into Walmart. However, not every Walmart sells "hunting" supplies, so check online before you make a trip.

Bah, I never include cost of admission or parking when thinking of buying goods at a gun show.

I mean, when you purchase ammo or goods online, do you count the cost of your internet? Or maybe the cost of your computer? Because you need both to order.

Besides, even with the added cost of parking/admission, you don't have to worry about if a Walmart that sells ammo actually has any instock or if they do, they only have like 1 or 2 boxes because some one else came over and bought it all.

There are some good deals online. You can find some places that give a really good deal on shipping or even free shipping when buying a certain amount.

Mmm, well I don't buy either of those two calibers you mentioned, op, but they do usually sell ammo at retail price unless it's on sale so definitely check out their weekly ads that tend to be put up on Thursdays(prices effective the day after). They do carry LAX reloads, though. Wish I could remember their .40 s&w prices but should be the cheapest ammo they carry.

Ammo brothers in Cerritos has a box of 20 American Eagle 5.56 62gr. green tip for $7.50. They also have reloads as well IIRC.

Turners ammo prices are high except for the sale items.
right now neither of those ammos are on sale at turners.

While I do agree with you that ultimately online is the best way to go, I don't agree with including internet and computer costs as I would have both regardless of ammo purchase. I guess the same can be argued about going to a gun show if you were really going there for other purposes beside ammo.

OP, try www.gun-deals.com. You can look for great deals online and enter your zip to calculate shipping, as well as sort by cost per round.

If you are going to be in LA you can always go to LAX Range to get their reloads directly.
