Default East Bay Ammo Group Buy - Closed

If you are new to this Group Buy and like to participate, Please read update2 thru update4 below.
The ammo is reloads, if that matters to me.


Hi all,

I tried to ask where people in the East Bay get affordable ammo yesterday (Link), and have not gotten any answer except 1 person stated his interest in a group buy from a forum vendor Bullet_man911 (his for sale thread).

Therefore, I'm posting here to see if anyone else is also interested in a handgun ammo group buy from Serge. Calibers are limited to what he is offering (9mm, 40SW, 45ACP, 38spl). I live in West Contra Costa County, near Richmond, El Cerrito, and Albany area, so ideally the closer you are the better.

At the moment, I cannot promise anything yet, since I don't know how many people would be interested. However, I'd be willing to do it if we can get an order of 3 - 4k round combined. The price is like going to be Serge's final price plus some fuel cost (more to this once we are more certain to do this).

Please reply below for interests/comments/suggestions.
Make sure to tell me how many rounds you'd like to get.

Thank you,

Chris


Update1 20130111 20:39
Thanks for all that replied. I feel a group buy is likely to happen soon (hopefully within a month). I will start getting in touch with Serge (bullet_man911) for more accurate pricing. See the list below for who's interested.
===================================

Update2 20130112 07:55
First and Foremost, by participating this group buy, you certify that you've met the legal requirements to purchase the ammo you are ordering. I don't want to get Serge and myself into trouble.

Now back to the topic, I talked to Serge last night, and unfortunately he is on limited stock at the moment and will not be able to offer additional discount to our group buy. Therefore, the cost the ammo will be what he listed in the commercial section. I will quote his price below. In addition to the ammo price, I'd like everyone who orders to help out my fuel cost, 5% of your order. See price below.

Pricing
9mm per 1000- $210 ---115gr TMJ
40sw per 1000- $245 ---180gr TMJ
45acp per 500- $155 / per 1000- $310 ---230gr TMJ
38Spl per 1000- $260 --- 158gr TMJ

Final price = what you order above + 5%

For 1k 9mm: $210 + $210x0.05 = $220.5 (how you deal with c50 is completely up to you. You can round it up or down as you wish, no need to come up with the change)


Payment
For payment, you can either pay cash or check, but no credit cards (no way to process it).
1) For cash payers, you can contact me to arrange a meet up to make sure your money gets to me safely. Unless you want to mail a money order from the post office.
2) For check payers, you need to cut a check for Serge and another check (or small amount of cash to help out fuel cost) for me. Along with your check, you will also need to include your contact info for Serge. I will send out instructions later this weekend.
=====================================

Update3 20130113 09:00
Now that we have enough interest, I've made arrange to go pickup the ammo on the weekend of Feb 2nd.
I will follow up PMs to those we expressed their interest for payments. Like I previously stated, you have the choice to use check payable to Bullet_man911 if you are worried about your cash payment.
For FTF people, I will likely be at San Leandro Range on the Jan 19th and maybe Richmond Rod and Gun on Jan 26th. Other time and location may be discussed.

For the next couple weeks, we should all get the money together to secure our desired amount of ammo from Serge.
For those new to this group buy, it is still not too late as long as it is before the last week of January, but ammo may not be guaranteed due vendor stock and supply situation.
===================================

Update4 20130114 19:00
The Following are some key dates and what I think will happen:
1) 1/16/2013, I will take off the names of those have not contacted me for payment, to make room.
2) 1/19/2013, I will be at San Leandro Rifle&Pistol Range, likely 9 - 11. If you like to meet there let me know. So far, I have Sennasixty8 and craig682. -CANCELED due lack of response. PM me if you still wish to meet
3) 1/20/2013 night, I will contact Serge to reserve ammo for those who have given me the money.
4) 1/26/2013, I will likely be at San Leandro Rifle&Pistol Range from 9 - 11. Contact me if you want to meet at the time.
5) 1/27/2013 night, I will contact Serge to reserve additional ammo for those who have given me money after (3).
6) 1/31/2013 night, I will contact Serge the last time for any additional ammo.
7) 2/3/2013, the ammo will be available for pickup. You can also start contact me for meetups as well. I mistakenly stated to some as 2/2/2013, sorry.
Note: I cannot guarantee the availability of any ammo. I will try my best, but it is not in my control.

Please feel free to PM me for any additional questions/comments/suggestions.

I'd be interested in some .40 S&W at the right price, and also some .223 if there is any.

I'm in Sacramento, but can be pursuaded to come down, pick up and shoot at USI or wherever people are shooting next.

Bonnie, that makes 3 of us, I guess.I think USI is ok for me, always give me more reason to browse LGS.

However, Serge does not offer 223, so only 40. I will likely get 1k 9mm, and maybe 500 45acp. How about you?

sparrky,

There is no shipping cost, but I will ask you guys to add 5% to your order to help me out with fuel, which should be slightly cheaper than the actual shipping. In you case, in $8 - $9.

Rob,

We will only be ordering what Bullet_man911 offers, so no. Sorry.
Unless, you have any contact between Bay Area and LA that supplies those.

I'm sure I will do it again later this year if this one goes relatively smoothly and the further ammo purchase restriction is not too much PITA.

Thanks... let me know if you do it again. I'm up for some .45 acp later. I love Serge's stuff... shot tons of it alreaedy in 9mm, 45acp and now 38spl. I like his stuff better than freedom's reloads cause I've had FTF on thier stuff and not Serge's.

I scheduled to go down to LA the 3rd weekend from now, the weekend of Feb. 2nd to allow enough time for allow people get in the group buy and send me the money. If I have everyone's money, I will contact Serge right away to reserve enough quantity for those paid. Additional ammo from that point will no be guaranteed. The ammo should be available for pick on Sunday the same weekend. I will update timeline in my original post.

If no one else, I can split 1k 9mm with you. Let me know which one you want to get. It will officially end 2/1/2013, but likely stop taking orders sometime last week of January. After that, it is just people getting their ammo.

Hi Chris,

Serge has pulled his contact info and not taking anymore orders until he can catch up. He also posted that prices may be changing. Can you confirm that this order is one he's going to fill at the prices originally quoted?

Thx,

Kelly
