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.

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.

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.

Thanks for the help. I just got a marlin 2000 & need to get a bunch of different target ammo ( ely, CCI green tag, aiguille ect) to see what it likes. Locally I have found

If you live near a Cabela's you can order from their website and have it shipped to one of their stores without having to pay shipping charges. I order from www.cabelas.com all the time. They really do have pretty good prices, especially when there is a sale. When ordering something online any shipping charges have to be factored into the total cost of the goods. Sometimes what appears to be a good price is not so good when shipping charges are added.

I was just on CTD's site and see they are adding a $2.99 handling charge to the total just like Natchez Shooters.

Same here, 100 shells of birdshot for a little over $20 at walmart. I buy most of my ammo from there because of the price. I can get slugs for $8 a box of 15 i believe.

I found that buying from Walmart, big 5, even bass pro shop is cheaper than ordering online only because the shipping cost is so much.

I ordered some ammo from Palmetto state armory. Charged me 6 bucks shipping whether I ordered 1 box or 10. Turned out it was cheaper than I could get it from Wally world.

The curious thing about it is, a couple of years ago when we were going through an ammo shortage, especially on .380, CTD got the reputation of 'gouging' & I read a lot of comments about never doing business with them. Yet, I see that people are back to buying from them again, on every forum I go to. Now that the shortage seems to be starting again, they are back to their old tricks. ;)
