Like the title says....where is the cheapest place? Looking for factory ammo. Edited to add I am not looking for steel cased ammo at the moment.

Thanks for the reply. I should have added that I don't want steel cased.

I've been looking. Even though I reload mine, having 1K for SHTF would be nice. For that, steel cased works fine, if stored properly. It seems like $300+ shipping is about as good as it's going to get. Always pay attention to shipping.

That's a hell of a deal! The PMC 55gr at my local Wal-Mart is 13.97 for a box of 20. That would save someone near me a couple bucks shy of $400!!!

Keep an eye on AIM surplus; I picked up a few cases at $200/k with shipping, but you had to buy 2k...I bought 6k at the time.

Just checked--they are currently sold out, but be ready to be notified...500rds of Wolf 62g FMJ for $110...limit 1500 rds.

You know, for bird flu, zombies...probably zombies....

That is an insane deal....I would gladly do $400 for 2k....is this steel cased though? And how do I find those prices? Just a special they run from time to time?

AIMsurplus has some of the best deals available.
Available stress that, they get out of stock quick so get an email notification when in stock and jump on it before its gone.
