bulk ammo
Where do you all shop when purchasing bulk ammo for .22 lr ammo? i own about 5 .22's and always find my self shooting tons of rounds. Any good sites for purchasing ammo from with really good deals. Ive gone through cheaper than dirt but does anyone else know of any nice places to buy ammo from for a great price? Thank you.

Try the Walmart at exit 14 on 64 highway;)

Agreed, Walmart 550-555 round boxes for around $14.00 locally.

All my 22 needs are met by Walmart as well. Unless you need the high end match grade stuff you won't find it cheaper then at walmart.

Thanks for the advice, but i wasn't clear in my post. I have been buying 500 round boxes for a while now, I was looking to buy more quantity, such as i have found some 3330 round packages and even a 5550 round packages. Is that about the same that everyone else finds when searching for bulk ammo or anyone have any other luck? Thank you.

I've found that they usually dont have the bulk prices online for midway usa.....I call them, and tell them what I am looking for and they are very helpful.

When was the last time you checked Midway online? The bulk ammo prices are there now, but It doesn't look like any discount is given for buying the 5000, 5550 or 5250, 3250 and it looks like it mostly on backorder right now. I didn't see any 3330 bulk to purchase.

Cabela's will sell in bulk quantity as well, but still not really a huge savings over the regular price you can find elsewhere unless you factor in the $14.99 dry storage box.

Federal 2100 rounds, four boxes of 525.

I found this at Dunn's, 4000 of American Eagle.

There are some places that will give you a discount if you order 10 or more boxes of any ammo, just search the web for the particular brand and type you're looking for then add 10 or 20 to your cart and see if there is a reduction in price. I doubt you'll save a lot compared to Wal-Mart prices considering you'll be paying for shipping too.

5,250 rounds of CCI Blazer for $159.00 with free shipping and no sales tax.

Like most everybody else, I grab a brick from Walmart nearly every time I visit. I'm quite fond of the Winchester 333 as well as the Federal bulk packs...

Check Natchez shooters supply, widners reloading, Bruno Shooters supply and CSS Champion Shooters Supply Official Website
These are mail order places, they will have most any ammo you are looking for.

The best of the big box is the Federal Auto Match, about $17.00 for a box of 325. They shoot far better than the other big box stuff and have fewer duds.
Buy a few boxes of wolf MT @ $4.50 a box if you want to see the accuracy of your gun, the Wolf is the best shooting Match ammo for the price, you can spend 4 times as much and gain very little.

Try the Auto Match, cost just a little more than some of the big box ammo, but shoots far better. Worth every penny. The wolf shoots 2/3 smaller groups in my Savage on average than the Auto match, but everything else big box wise shoots far bigger groups than the auto match.
I have shot .1" groups using the Wolf, but my Savage has been accurized by a really good smith, made a big difference.
