Default Miwall ammo prices

I know they only sell at trade shows but are their prices that good? Do they sell 5.56/223 as well as other hand gun calibers?

Thanks

Their prices can be good for reloaded ammo. Where you save is in not paying shipping. If you go to a show know the cost of ammo before walking in. Ammo goes quick.

On a side note I had a very bad batch of 9mm rounds from them. 200 out of 500 rounds where not re-sized and would not chamber in any of my 9mm pistols. Had to send them back on my dime and Miwall sent me a refund for the 200 rounds. I Have not bought from them since.

At the last Costa Mesa gunshow, the .223 was $275/1K and the 9mm was $170/1K. So, you save a little bit over factory ammo. You'll have to add in tax and the entrance fee too.

And gas to get to and from the show...

Keep in mind too that Miwall doesn't sell just reloads. They have TON of factory ammo.

Some tips... Go there early on the first day of the show and go straight to the MiWall booth. Ammo moves fast, especially the better deals. And because they run the place like a sports bar in Spain during the World Cup, be prepared.. have money or credit card in hand, grab the ammo if you can and don't be afraid that someone is in line before you.

Ive scored some good deals on factory ammo from them, but the price varies.

Early this year I got 1k rds of Hornaday steel case .223 for a little over 200. Runs great, groups lil more consistently than 193 for me.

Jeez, these guys are getting worse and worse. I remember buying 9mm from them about a year ago for $150/1k. Last time I went (2 months ago) it was $165. Their .308 which used to be around $85 for 200 went to $99 for 200 2 months ago, and $129/200 last weekend! Ugh.....

Oh yeah, and there's tax on all the orders.

Factory ammo prices are going up as well so I don't blame them for their price increase. I used to reload all my ammo but my time is more important than what I saved so it's been MiWall all the way. Still, it was pretty nice was their reloads were only $240/1K and $150/1K earlier this year.

I bought their .223 reload 500rds for $139 at the last SF show since I had almost gone through the last 500 from the show before that.

Hadn't had any issues shooting it out of any of my rifles

This is an election year. I fully expect people to start stocking up again until it is over, and that means prices will go up for a while.

Just my $0.02

And after the election, regardless of who wins, they will go up again. Because people like to live their lives in fear.
