Default Cheaper than dirt

Anyone order ammo from them lately. I ordered $60.00 worth & shipping was $74.00. One box cost $5.00 then $16.00 to ship. What a crock!

I noticed shipping was high. Thats why I haven't ordered anything from there. I have been looking around for a box of 100 rds for my 12 to go shoot some clays. and I can't beat bass pros 32 bucks for some bird shot.

Shipping has just gotten really high regardless of what or where you buy , I just shipped a package from Il to CA and it cost me $12.85 for a 3.6# package luckly I got it in a USPS flat rate box or it was going to cost me $16 and some change

The ONLY thing I miss about working at FedEx world hub in Memphis was the 75% off shipping anything you wanted, and if you have items from multiple CTD warehouses in your cart you pay separate shipping for the items from each warehouse

When i buy ammo online i usually get shipping free because when i buy ammo online i buy a lot. Usually only buy ammo online a couple times a year and i usually spend $1000 when i order. Most places will ship for free if you spend a specific amount. I had ordered #150 of ammo and you should have seen the UPS drivers face when she had to bring them up my driveway. I helped with my dolley that was in my garage but she was maby 5 feet tall and maby #100.

Default buying ammo on line

I have purchased ammo on line from Brownells, Midway and Ammunition.com
All have had reasonable shipping charges.

I don't buy a lot of ammo on line because I only buy what is not available locally. I do check prices ocassionally on what I get here & usually the freight drives the cost up above local pricing.
