I haven't found any great places. I have found it is cheaper to shop around online, despite shipping charges.

If there is a good place in OC, I would love to know about it.

Default 5.56 ammo

I haven't found any reasonable prices locally either, so the online suggestion is a good one. By the way, you can go to ar15.com to the ammunition forum to check out current ammo specials. There is a sticky near the top where folks will post ammo deals they have found.

As others have said, order online is the way to go. Watch out for Sportsman Guide as they are squirrelly about shipping to OC. Sometimes they'll allow it, sometimes they won't. Personally I prefer Palmetto State Armory.

Alternatively, check the Ammo section for local Calgunners selling their stash. Sometimes you can find decent prices there.

There is a member from Tustin (Dark Mod IIRC) that does group buys every once in a while. I haven't personally bought but keep hearing that the ammo is good.
I will def be on the next buy.

Also, you can check www.gun-deals.com. People will post deals and it break the cost per round with shipping

Default Field Time Target

I work around the corner from this range and go there once a month. When I was there a couple months ago, they had bags of 50 up to cans of 1000. As you go higher up in the 500 round range, they are very close to the gun show prices for reloads. Plus, they are local. I bought a bag of 50 and didn't have a problem with any of them.

I'm not affiliated with them in any way, just a patron. I do plan on going to the gun show on Black Friday just to compare.

Got tired of looking....so I started reloading!! Way cheaper to feed my addiction. Also check out Wally World. Least expensive for ammo in my opinion (if they have it in stock).

I've used Surefire Manufacturing. They're based out of the San Fernando Valley and are at all the gun shows. They usually have 400 round bulk boxes of .223 for around $115, before tax. Good stuff, I've used their 9mm, .45acp, and .223 for range use and haven't been disappointed.

I'm relatively new to the .223 game, but from what I've seen online, $0.339 / rd is a decent price. Anything less than that and I'll usually pick some up even if I don't need it. This is for brass cased ammo. Wolf ammo is cheaper of course...

I've been on the Group buy. Yes, Dark Mod runs it. He purchases it from another Member Bullet_man911. Serge is a great guy and I highly recommend his stuff. Sadly .223 has not been avail the last few group buys.

gun-deals.com
ammoseek.com are great sources to seek for cheapest stuff.

Cabellas has free shipping right now.
Freedom munitions and Ventura munitions are also awesome.

Best bet is to reload yourself. I'm getting a press in 2 weeks!

I have been literally to pretty much every gun shop I south Orange County and there's nothing anywhere, not even 9mm really. Sux so ya Internet is your best bet if u wanna pay way more or if you wanna wait 6 months. I ordered 800 rounds of 5.56 about 6 months ago from sportsman guide and haven't gotten them yet. It was originally supposed to be 2 months at most then they pushed that back to 4 more months, it's a joke. All I want to do is go shoot my brand new built legit mk12 and can't do nothing but play army men at my I house with my guns. It just sux, all I want is like100 rounds to go shoot my 3 ar15 and I can't do squat. I can't even shoot my beretta cause I can't find 9mm really either. I don't buy ammo to hoarde just in case one day the world ends. If the world came to that's were gonna be dead or were gonna wish we were. I know I wouldn't want to live in a anarchy waste land. But that's me. I just buy ammo cause I love to shoot and its a passion of mine. I'm the kind of person that if there's ammo in my house I'm gonna go shoot it. But I'm sure a lot of you are on the same boat. Just wish I could go to a gun store and get 100 rounds for 30 bux that it used to be. Actually ammo was a lot cheaper than that. Now that the news is saying that the bill won't get passed and gun prices are somewhat starting to lower, now we have an ammo issue, just sux and hope it gets better soon.

I am sorry, I just don't understand saving a little money on a case and waiting six months for it. Yes, there is a panic tax right now. But there is plenty of 5.56/223 on ammoseek.com that can be sent to your front door.

There is shipping, but there is also no sales tax. (Although you must report the out of state purchase on your state return )

Just buy surplus online. It really is your best bet. Plenty of sellers on Calguns and other sites. I can't find .308 in any county let alone this one.

I didn't realize how bad the supply was until this last week when I actually tried to find ammo.
WOW.
I have a class at Front Sight next month and even their own ammo supplier told me today they can't guarantee they'll have enough ammo for students so I'm trying to be proactive and find my own.

Does anyone know a good place to buy factory reloads? Those normally aren't allowed at FS but due to shortages, they're making exceptions so I thought I'd start there first since we know the status of Factory New.
Any advice / info would be greatly appreciated.

p.s. been keeping an eye on ammoseek.com but wasn't sure if there were other good sites or local places.

Try laxammo.com I've read that they do a lot of reloads. I have not personally been there though.

I've bought the bullletman/Dark Mod 38spl a couple times - great consistant reliable stuff. no 357, no 44mag.

Laxammo has wider selection, but I've not used them. laxammo.com is showing no reloads.

Keep looking here - not everybody is gouging...

I was surprised to see several boxes of American and Winchester 9mm at Ammos Bros in Cerritos this morning. They had zero small pistol primers or pistol powder unfortunately. That's all I'm missing for my first crack at reloading.

I have found some expensive $30 for 100 at elite firearms in orange. On target range in laguna niguel off the 5 freeway has 9 mm reloads, $170 for 500 also .45acp $200 for 500. I've been getting wpa and milwall 308 from gunbroker for about $0.90 a round.
