M855 BallWe wanted to take this opportunity to list a few places we’ve bought ammo from online where we had a good, positive experience and wouldn’t hesitate buying from again.

We’d also like to ask our readers where they’ve had success purchasing ammunition and how their experience was.

Here’s ours:

Lucky Gunner

Make sure you head over to Lucky Gunner to check out their large inventory. They pride themselves on having great prices and only showing products that are in stock ready to ship to your door the same or the next business day.

They have a real-time inventory system that actually gives a count on how many of each item is in stock. They do charge for shipping, which is a fair price for the weight.

We’ve ordered 9mm and 5.56 from them with excellent results.

Ammunition To Go

Our experiences with this company have been great. They’re friendly when calling, ship quickly and package well. They charge for shipping, which again was a fair price for the weight.

Ammunition To Go does require a faxed (or emailed) copy of your drivers license on file before they will sell to you.

We’ve ordered 5.56 ammo from them, along with 9mm once.

Ammoman

Ammoman is friendly on the phone, quick to ship, packages well and ships for FREE!

Their prices are very competitive, and you get free shipping which usually puts them on top when comparing prices.

We’ve ordered 5.56 ammunition from them a few times.

No one in their right mind would randomly email an online store their drivers license. It is TOTALLY unneeded. UPS can easily get an "adult signature" upon deliverly, instead.

CTD is gouging again. They want $999.99 for 1,000 loose packed Federal M855 rounds.

Silver State Armory are great 6.8 mm specialists; lots of choices for both training and tactical loads. They also carry plenty of 5.56. Verry high quality stuff; they make their own brass.

I have had good luck with natchezss.com as well. I ordered a couple of cases of 9mm Blazer from them for a training class.

I have purchased ammo several times from Cabelas and have had good service. The dry boxes are an added plus. The prices at first look are only slightly higher than the discount dealers. They have twenty dollar coupon offers. You can use them one per household per day. They seem to have better stock on hand than some of the discounters too. I have been waiting on one order for three or four weeks though.

Norbert,

Ammoman is an excellent resource. Thanks for the link for sgcusa, good stuff!

ammoman.com has a steady supply of good value M193 and M855, plus the shipping being included in their prices is really convenient. They'll keep your ID on file for future orders.

My other top pick for ammo is actually sgcusa.com - they're inventory is more spotty than ammoman's but they only carry good quality stuff, their prices are very competitive (sometimes down right irresistible) and the shipping is quite reasonable (at least to CA it is).

www.aimsurplus.com has been my best source for 5.56 ammo recently. Shipping is reasonable, about $1/lb.

I've only bought online from Cabelas. Only once though. They threw in a free ammo dry box and the prices weren't bad. 500 rounds of 5.56 for plinking.

Thanks for the update brother. I'm glad that CTD is the cheapest for that, considering they were price gouging around election time last year. I understand supply and demand, but there's no excuse for what they did during the last election. Hopefully they learned from that and haven't adopted that model again.

Cabelas is friendly and the dry boxes are nice. However, their prices aren't the greatest and their listed wait times on ammo have become useless. I ordered Winchester White Box 40 and 45 that originally said 3 - 4 weeks. Three months later I called them to cancel and they said, "But it will be in in 3 - 4 weeks." I thanked the CS person and explained that I had been told 3 - 4 weeks for 3 months. They apologized and canceled the order with no fuss. I have ordered other items from them in the past with no issue and good service.

The Field Notes Case from Recycled Firefighter is made from firehose that’s been in service but re-purposed instead of being thrown out.
