Just bought some 22lr from Cabela's for $.06 a round. Free shipping if order is over $99.00. I bought over $100 of different types of ammo and it was all pretty cheap. Wally World here in Louisiana are all about back to normal on 22lr and even 22 wmr mag. At a reasonable price too.

Hallelujah!

Default cartridges

Yep same here my wholesale houses the crooks finally took restrictions off now that they are up to their rears in supplies. I ordered 2 cases of Aquila and selling at 35$ a brick including sales tax.
The whole ammo deal still has me fuming. They could have shipped me a case now and then butif I wanted 22's I had to order a 1,000$ of guns or junk I didn't need.

I'll pick up a few more cases and sit on them for the next go around.

It's not like I make a whole lot on a case either.

BPBill your comments about your wholesalers during the ammo crisis reminded me about this:

Down in the central part of the state, where a friend grew up, there is a family owned sporting goods store and a little before the ammo crisis struck, one of the owners sons, still in training, was given the task of ordering their ammo.

Somehow in placing the order, the young man made a mistake and apparently entered the order twice, at any rate the order he made out got doubled. His dad, reportedly told the boy, it may put us out of business, but we probably have enough ammo for the next decade, IF we can make it that long!

Shortly after their ammo shipment was delivered the ammo crisis struck, and it was quickly learned by those in that area that, their store had ammo when others didn't and that news spread well beyond their normal market area, bringing in many new customers.

Later, I understood through my friend, that the dad, told his son, your ammo order may just be our salvation through this crisis.

I am familiar with the store and shop there occasionally, but all my information is strictly through my friend, and he said the information was second hand to him. He is a frequent customer at the store and true or not he assured me they never failed to have ammo on their shelves throughout the entire ammo crisis, when numerous other stores all around them, including some much larger chain stores, did not.

"Wally World here in Louisiana are all about back to normal on 22lr and even 22 wmr mag. At a reasonable price too. the1Gman" I was just in my local Wally World today and talked with the Dept Mgr and they still are NOT having .22 anything but small drips and drabs come in. While I used to work there, I now work at a gun store in the next town and we are getting plenty of .22 and even have it on the shelves with no restriction at this time. Granted if the proverbial SHTF starts again for whatever reason we may take into the back room and start limiting how much each person may have. Right now all the small gun stores in area have it, and Wally World has very small amounts and only once in a very Great while.

Default shortage nah

Jjr, oh yea I had stuff in boxes that I could not sell then Capt Zero and King cuomo hit the stage.
I had customer who were regulars that defected to the box stores calling me looking for ammo and supplies.

I sold what I had at MSRP which is something I had never done in the past. My prices were always lower and I could match any LGS.

Then my wholesale houses jacked up the price of ml spec cartridges. Like from a few pennies each to 50-.100 per piece.

The pricing disappeared off the flyers and was replaced with a "call your rep" for pricing. Black carbine adds , flashlights and 150$ pocket knives were and still are in 99% of my emails and paper I get here.

These guys are way over stocked and I'm offered FREE shipping on most ammo orders instead of 20$ per case as was the norm last year.

I can be standing at the local gun smith shop where I have ammo stocked in 3 display cases. People will stand and talk to me for an hour and never see the ammo below them until I mention it.

The business was weird in the past, but now it's like syfy weird.

.22 ammo is scarce around here again. It started coming back, then it dried up, then started coming back, now its around but you don't see a lot. Our one Wal-Mart had some bricks of federal .22 standard velocity stuff last week. They had it strategically placed on the bottom shelf almost hidden from view. Our local hardware/gun store still has some as always. They're a first source store, as in I was told they have perks with the ammo wholesaler that they get stock before other stores do. I imagine since they sell guns it makes sense to have ammo for said guns they sell.

All other calibers have been back to normal for a while now.

Default We have ammo.

We may be out one brand of a particular loading, but we have ammo from .17 HMR upwards. Prices are up but availability is as well.

I miss 0.02 and 0.03 per round rimfire, but at least it is available.

22 ammo almost non existant in ny, the same couple people buy up what little arrives at wally world, 20 boxes come in every 2 weeks and they are gone in 5 minutes. nobody else carries it either, a single round sells for $1 in local flea markets (50 round box for $50). can't order online, the Safe act prohibits ammo to be shipped through the mail, cabelas, cheaper than dirt, etc, won't ship to NY because its against state law. only way i can see getting 22 ammo again is to travel 1200 miles (round trip) to the nearest otherer state without bs restrictions then find a place to buy ammo and haul it home,no easy feat when your only means of travel is boots, bike, atv, and tractor

Just another example of laws restricting the rights of law-abiding citizens, which in no way what-so-ever hinders the criminal element. I hate you are caught in the web of New York's injustice, Setanta.

possibly I could have it shipped to an authorized dealer, I have to look into doing that next. 22 rimfire is about the only thing impossible to find, no shortage of ammo for shotguns or larger rifles (I buy 12 and 20 gauge and 30-30 ammo easily, though its expensive), shortage of plinking ammo just means nobody can practice much (unless you got a crack barrel pellet rifle, that's still 250 rounds for $5). you do need 2 forms of ID to buy ammo in NY and i rarely carry any (was almost arrested in 2012 for not having citizenship ID, I was walking to a friends house and a state police car pulled me over and demanded I prove I was a US citizen, had I not had some mail in my pocket with my post office box number on it I would have been arrested under suspission of "walking in from Canada")

This post is long but lot's of information depending on where you live there is no need to buy or ship to an FFL for ammo.


No FFL / FOID faxing or uploading required to buy ammo in most states!


Can you buy ammo online? Of course you can! Buying ammo online is something some people avoid because they are not familiar with the ammunition laws in their area. However, as long as you known the laws in your jurisdiction, buying ammo online can be a great way to buy hard to find ammunition at great prices. The next time you find yourself asking "Can I buy ammo online?", simply check this page for information on federal, state and local laws on shipping ammunition while ordering online.

Buy Ammo Online

Ready to buy ammunition online? If you already know your local ammo laws you can go directly to our ammunition store. If not, please review our Shipping & Returns, Frequently Asked Questions, this page, and agree to the Terms and Conditions at checkout to buy online from Ammunition Store! Only residents in the restricted areas below will need to send the required credentials via fax or e-mail before our products can be shipped. For more information on guns and ammunition laws in your state, visit the NRA-ILA state laws page.

AGE RESTRICTIONS: You must be 21 years of age to purchase handgun ammunition and at least 18 years of age to purchase rifle ammunition.

PLEASE TAKE THE TIME TO DOUBLE CHECK YOUR STATE / LOCAL LAWS

Any order placed that does not meet these legal requirements will be automatically canceled and refunded minus a 4% fee. Why you ask? If you place an order online we get charged a fee by the credit card companies for the transaction, we will not absorb this cost due to people not knowing their state laws.
