    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.

    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.

    Looks like SG ammo is about to run a deal. I've had great luck with them.

    I just ordered 1000 rounds of Aguila .223 from AIMsurplus for $299; should arrive tomorrow :)

    I think I just got an e-mail from Cheaper than Dirt that they have a sale on PMC bronze ($5.89 per box) through July 19th.

    All the above are great vendors.

    CTD does, but their PMC is boat tail...I am likely to just wait until SGAmmo does their sale.

    They are out of stock, and have been for some time, on newly manufactured ammo.

    Thanks though. I am just looking for a purchase more now than later is all.
