Default struck out this week..turned to gunbroker..ouch!

So spent a lot of time this week searching for .40 ammo...with no luck...found some that was well over-priced but did not purchase..went to Walmart at the right time on friday..no luck.

now I have spent much of the last 24 hours combing Gunbroker which quite Frankly is as overpriced as many of the lgs....does anyone have any tips or tricks for gunbroker?....I am not having much luck in the reasonably priced category this week!

Ex. One box of PPU JHP ($22 all day last week)....one local lgs I visited wanted 37 dollars for same box...tried to sell it up as a 50 rd.box but I simply said it was far too high...won't be going back to that place again!

I think gunbroker is a good place to get your stuff. With that said, it is going to be hard to get a good deal right now, with so many people willing to pay the prices that they are paying on GB. It is going to take due dilligents to find a good deal, be it on ammo or reloading supplies or guns. As long as you are at the computer, look around at other websights, and maybe you will find a deal. Good luck.

I know..tried really hard this week to find ammo..found it but prices are at an extreme premium right now...and the ones that are not are out Of stock when I log on..just frustrating....GB has been really high too...i dont know why people are paying these prices..they are hurting all of us Bc prices are not going to come down until they do.

As well as Gunbroker, try Gun Auction (formerly Auction Arms) One seller I have bought from has 1000 roads of the aluminum cased Blazer 40 S&W for about $400 right now- free shipping.

But that IS an auction- price can be bid up

Guess things are better in certain areas-
Even walmart here has 380-9mm-40
LGS has all but 22lr-

Might go to MidwayUSA & put some "alert me" on what you want-

Cabellas had some 9 MM in stock. Not the cheapest I've bought before but ok on the price. It was going like hot cakes
