Default Where are the best ammo prices?

I want to stock up on some target ammo and I'm looking for the best price. Gander Mountain has Blazer Brass (which I've found to be very dependable) on sale. 9mm 10.99/50 .40 17.99/50

Is this a good price? It seems to be from what I've seen around SW Ohio. Can I get a better deal? Any thoughts about price or different ammo would appreciated.

For range fodder, I find Walmart has about the best prices - if there's any on the shelf...

In my area you can't beat Walmart for range ammo.

There's a start.

Use ammoengine like shopping at Sam's Club. Not always the "Best Price",
shop around.

I have used the next 5 with good luck.

The rest I've heard positive remarks from members.

9mm Blazer for $11 is a solid deal. $18 for 40sw is a little steep.

I'll echo that Walmart is a great source for cheap target ammo. Prices per 50 are usually $9-11 for 9mm, $13-16 for 40sw, and $16-18 for 45acp. The most affordable is Federal Champion, which has always run fine for me. Winchester's white box 100rd boxes cost a dollar or two more (per 50), but they're often what I reach for. They're packed in there like sardines, making them very portable and easier to store in tight spaces.

Walmart, IIRC the Federal Champions are;

$9.74/50 9mm
$13.47/50 .40 cal

Another store to check is Academy but cost a little higher.

It's already been said in a roundabout way, but last time I was perusing the ammunition at Walmart, they had Remington UMC 9mm 250 rd boxes for just over $50 per box. I only shot 100 rounds but everyone went "bang" That's the cheapest I've found without having to buy very large quantities or mess with shipping. Though they only had 5 of those boxes the day I bought mine, and the next day the other three were gone.

Another suggestion for walmart. You can buy federal handgun target ammo much cheaper than even buying bulk!

I've always found Gander to be very proud of their stuff. The last time I was at Gander Mountain looking at ammo, they were at least $1.50 higher than the Wal-Mart I visited just down the road. I mentioned the high prices to the guy at Gander, and he copped an attitude. I even pointed out how the Kimber he had in the case was about $150 more than every one else. Needless to say, he did not stick around the counter after that. Heck, they had a Mosin priced at $160. It was beat to bejeebus as well.

If you like Gander Mountain, then shop there. I have found some fly-tying stuff I can't find elsewhere, so I buy that there. As for other stuff, they just seem pricey. Every once in a while, they do have some great sales.
