We live in Orlando and usually end up at Wal-Mart because we are not familiar with enough other places that would sell ammo at a decent price. I'm finding that they are not stocking enough .380 (Remington).

May I ask where do you all (y'all) purchase your ammo? Is there a reliable online place where we could buy in bulk? I have a .38 and .380 and my husband has a 9m and 45m.

We've obviously jumped on this bandwagon late and have heard that ammo prices have really been jumping. If this is the trend we would like to at least stock up on some rather than buying one box at a time to go to the range.

Questions, so many questions. I love learning.

You might try buying in bulk here Cabela's Bulk Ammo. I suspect there is going to be a rush on ammo later this year because of the unknown outcome of the upcoming election. Can you say scary Barack :eek:

Thanks for the link. I'm hearing from sales people that they've been selling a lot of ammo lately. I have to say that we took the Spend-O-Crats stimulus check and purchased our first handguns. That counts as stimulating the economy, right?

Something told us that if the wrong person got in office we would begin to lose even more of our freedoms. We were motivated to have our purchases and licenses in place before the election. We are cutting it close but there will at least be two more concealed weapons licenses in Florida before the election. That is two more voices that could make a difference one day.

Here are my favorite online ammo links. Obviously carry ammo should be top of the line ammunition. The cheaper types are fine for the range.

This first link is a site that will give you all the current ammo deals available. It's a great tool to locate the best priced ammo at any given time.

If you are looking for purchasing ammo in bulk, may I suggest the next local gunshow in the Orlando area. I have attached a link that should give you all the info you may need. http://southernclassicgun.com/Schedule.htm

I purchase practically all of my ammo at the Tampa gunshow at the State Fairgrounds. It can be purchsed in bulk ( 50 rounds, 100 rounds or 1000 rounds ) and at a competitive price and you do not have to pay shipping costs. Plus you get to have fun walking around the show saying ... " and I want that and that and that ... " :rolf

If you want, you can purchase either factory loaded ammo ( which will be more expensive ) or you can buy reloaded ammo ( which will be lower in price ).

I purchase a lot of reloads from Georgia Arms. The ammo is good and the prices are reasonable considering the situation. You'll have to walk around the gunshow and check out the vendors to see who has the best deals, but don't take too long because all the good deals on the good ammo sell quick.

Yes, you have jumped in late, and the prices have jumped a lot, but it is not too late and the earlier you purchase, the less you will have to spend in the long run.

If you are concerned about home defense, may I also suggest that you purchase a 12 guage shotgun, either semi-auto or pump, and buy some 00 Buck and slug ammo.

The ammo is available, but as with all the other ammo, it is going up as well. A handgun is good for personal defense, but you cannot beat a good shotgun to defend the home if need be.

After you purchse the ammo for your handguns, and get the shotgun and ammo purchased, you may want to look into purchasing a
Colt AR-15 and ammo. The AR-15 is a good close range to medium range weapon that should handle your needs, and the .223 is available, not cheap but at competitive prices.

If you decide to purchase an AR-15 do it before the " Elected Idiots " in Washington DC try to bring back the " ban " that was allowed to expire from that other " Elected Idiot " Bill Clinton.

Good luck to you and your husband .... just remember to buy what you can, when you can, everytime you can.

One thing to always look for when ordering online...check shipping and HANDLING prices before finalizing your order...sites like ammoman.com include shipping and all...other sites will charge one, the other or most likely both...but you really do have to shop around...that's what makes the gun-deals.com site that FLRon mentioned a real good resource.

Here's another choice or two. You've really got a lot of good ones already but variety is the spice of life, right?

If you buy reloaded ammo, be careful who you buy from. Some of the stuff is good and some is horrible and you may end up voiding any warranty you may have on your guns. Good Luck and let us know what you do decie on.

I also, live in Orlando. While I don't have a 380 (though an LCP is next on my list :) ) my primary firearm is a 9mm. The cheapest I have found anywhere, including bulk purchases is from Walmart. Their Blazer Brass is 8.97 for 50 and it shoots great out of my HK P200SK 9mm.

While you can come close to the price in quantities of 500 or 1000 online, it doesn't usually take into account shipping. I also kind of like the frequent trips to grab misc other things while I'm there, and grab 3-4 boxes for the weekend range trip.

I've found it at all three of the closest locations in East Orlando (UCF area).
N 436 between University and Red Bug.
E Colonial between Alafaya and Rouse Rd.
S 436 Towards the airport

As for the 380, I found bulk Speer LE Gold Dot for 65 for 250 rounds from TDS, link is here http://www.tds-us.com/catalog.php/tds/dt52872/pd1295946/SPEER_GOLD_DOT_380_90gr._BULK

It comes out to $13 per 50 rounds, which is about what any of the other brands are gonna be. Not to mention, its a great carry ammo IMO and why not practice with what you would use to defend yourself? ( Since target ammo is about the same price)

FLRon,

Thanks. They've got everything but what I am really looking for. I really want the RA40T ammo. Will more than likely buy more gold dot hollow point since it seems plentiful around here.

If I see that they are back in stock on the Ranger ammo, I'll let you know. They seem to be out of stock on quite a bit of the Ranger ammo for some time now.

I stocked up on a few boxes about a year ago. I don't shoot the stuff, so once you fill your carry/home defense mags, it should last a long time.

Thank You, Sir. Much appreciated.
