Best bulk ammo deal?

Who do you guys use for bulk ammo?
I'm getting back into reloading, but I would not be able to keep up with "demand"; so it would be easier to buy.

We bought all of the guys that work for us a membership to one of the local ranges, and they're hooked. Every Thursday is range day at lunch. We will supply some of the ammo, but they will also need to get some of their own as well.

I'd love a good line on 9, 45acp, 223, and 7.62.

chokeu2,
In the regualr issues of Shotgun News, there are plenty of folks selling wolf, cheap. The only prob is you cannot reload the steel cases, but the price for .223 is well worth the step by step reloading process. I hate reloading 1-200 rounds over one evening or two only to smoke them in five minutes. ;-)

If you shoot alot, Atlanta Arms and Ammo sells reloaded stuff, provides ammo for the Practical Shooters at AMU (Travis Tomasie, the guy with the fast reload clip all over the intenet, and Dave Sivigney, Glock Factory Shooter among others). I plan to get into reloading this summer but until them I buy here. I have bought over 4000 rounds from them this year and havent had a single round fail to go down range. I dont even bother to get the new brass stuff for matches like a lot of people, I just shoot the reloaded brass because it works. If you are military, they will ship for free so you pay what you see below delivered to your door via UPS Ground. I order on Monday and take delivery on Thurs. I know its hard to read, but they dont post prices on their website so I had to cut and paste off an Excel spreadsheet. Bear in mind this is training or competition ammo NOT SELF DEFENSE AMMO.

These guys also provide a solid product for a reasonable price for reloaded brass. If you shoot USPSA and buy this stuff, you can skip the chrono stage due to an agreement between them and USPSA (for those that dont know, USPSA is the IPSC sanctioned rulling body for Practical Shooting in the US)

This is probably a low-speed idea, but for 9mm I buy Winchester White Box at Wally World for $12-13 for a box of 100 rounds. A case of 1000 rounds is somewhere between $120-130. That's the cheapest I've seen for decent shooting ammo. It's made by Winchester and it's all non-corrosive brass cased.

Ammo prices are going through the roof... but component are getting more expensive too... or so I keep telling myself.

I haven't given in and started re-loading yet. I keep threatening to... then go on the internet and order up a few thousand rounds of whatever and then the idea passes.

If you are ok with reloads and since you are in GA, it might be worth it for you to check these guys GA Arms (they are on the list) http://www.georgia-arms.com/loaded_ammo.htm

Might save a little on shipping if you can do a drive by.

ammoman.com has some awesome deals on really good ammo that pop up once in a while, check there often. Joe's Sports (formerly GI Joe's) here in the Pacific NW has good deals on 9, 45, and .223, but I'm not sure if they are nationwide.

I would highly recommend against shooting Wolf ammo through an AR. The cleaning process is enough to make you want to throw the gun away and buy a new one.

I have purchased well over 100 thousand rounds from these guys and because I used to buy in 5000 rd bulk (.45 cal and 9mm) They gave me the same price as they did to wholesalers-much better than those posted above you just had to pick them up in Social Circle, Ga at the ol red barn that is the factory. I have never had a single problem with there stuff-top grade TRAINING ammo and a great bunch of guys I had an old DoD card and told them I was running a pre-deploy class in the area and it took three seconds to give me the best price avail. (I'm sure that is if you live in the area only).

Good stuff at a great price if you shoot MASS QUANTITIES and live in the area

The price was even better if I returned cartridge carriers and brass.
I will not post those prices but if you live in the area PM me and I will pass along contact info.

Anyone ever use Gulf Coast Ammunition? Latest SGN has their price for Wolf .223 55/62 gr FMJ at $122/1000. I have been trying to call their 1800 number all morning, and they are 'busy' every time.

Local gunshop is $5+ for 20rds Wolf... Arrgh!!

edited 8 jun 07 at 1228 hrs.
finally got through to Gulf Coast. They are $99/500.. DAMN Going through the roof..

Anyone else find any cheap ammo anywhere??

Wolf= Bad. Just my opinion from personal experience. You can find other good deals for much better ammo.

Couldn't agree more. Wolf sucks balls. It is dirty and has a much higher tendancy to jam up your weapon than other brands. I stick with good ol Remington or Winchester for range shooting. Sure the wolf is dirt cheaper but you get what you pay for. Personally I would not use Wolf ammo if it was given to me for free. Ive seen nothing but bad experiences with it. Just my opinion - for what its worth.
