The election has caused normal thinking people to go insane. Please don't get caught in up the current 'ammo frenzy'. I've seen some online sellers jack up their prices 40-50%. There are still some good buys out there on bulk 9mm ammo.

SGammo has some decent deals on 9mm Ammo, either brass or steel cases. I like their lower-than-most flat rate shipping charges. In general they ship quickly, but the frenzy has caught them as well.


Aguila 9mm 115gr FMJ Brass Cased 1000/$211.80 shipped [sgammo.com]


Aquila 9mm 124gr FMJ Brass Cased 1000/$213.80 shipped [sgammo.com]


Tula 9mm 115gr FMJ Steel Cased 1000/$195.50 shipped [sgammo.com]

SGammo also has a decent price on Remington 9mm 124 gr BJHP Golden Sabers 25/$11.95 [sgammo.com]. These are excellent defensive rounds.

Is that roughly 9 cents a round? Incredible.

Uhh the steele cased are the cheapest.
195.50 / 1000 = $0.1955 per round

Sooo about 20 cents per round, unless I've missed something.

More like 5k per caliber minimum (practice and defense rounds combined).

For the smaller 22LR, make it 10k rounds.

And these are considered "modest." Nowhere near overkill yet.

See it should be according to number of guns per caliber.... or at least a formula to factor in the number of guns somehow.

I have 2 308s and 7 223s... so I should have a lot more 223 ammo than 308 ... well... my thoughts.... I need to find some deals on 308... 9mm/223 I'm sitting on about 4k each...

I'm wondering, how do you store this ammo? Ammo cans? Ammo cans in a safe? Elaborate. My two ammo cans are full, and I'm struggling with how to best-store my ammo (I'm running low).

I ordered from SGammo for the first time about a week before the election (I had a feeling everyone would go crazy afterwards). They shipped it fast and it arrived in a few days (OK to south TX). I'd definitely buy from them again. But as mentioned, expect a longer shipping time due to the sudden flood of orders.

I have about a dozen ammo cans, but they're all full too. I just leave the excess in the bulk boxes they came in and keep it inside the house. As long as it's in a climate controlled environment, it should be fine. The problem is making sure you have sturdy enough shelves to hold the weight of ammo!

Storing ammo isn't like storing cigars. As long as you keep the ammo indoors and in their original case/boxes, it should ok for a very long time. And save up those desicant packets and throw them into the cases.

What are the effects of the different grain counts?

The grains are bullet weight. Heavier bullet will have slightly less powder behind it and move slower (probably not much slower in this case).

I would also not suggest the steel case for reliability reasons. They have a coating on them that can build up in the chamber and cause jams. I have only used some steel case .45 acp in the past and it was VERY dirty, this was Tula ammo.

learn to reload, and cast bullets. You won't need to find ammo deals. I just bought 1k .223 for $90. They're even cheaper if I cast handgun caliber bullets.

The .223 you reload, how are you getting it to 1000k for $90? The best I could work out in pricing the components was in the $.17-.19/round range. With the amount of labor is factored in I just gave up and bought some wolf ammo for $.205/round.

Group buys on my local gun forum... I can turn out 300 rounds per hour with an auto-indexing progressive press. It also groups 100 times better than steel.

I would urge you to check your local forums for other members who would go in with you for huge group buys.

You can probably do better than $0.17 without a group buy even if you don't get a group buy with shopping carefully. I'd say you can get about $0.12 per round if you shop carefully.
