    Purchase ammunition online?
    I'm using a lot of .380 rounds lately at the firing range.

    Our local WalMart has 100 rounds for $22 (22 cents each) but they rarely have them in stock. They get few boxes per week and they sell out fast.

    My next best bet is a couple other local places that sell packages of 250 rounds for $100 (40 cents each).

    Bummer!

    Does anyone know where I can get .380 rounds online for at or less than about 25 cents per round (Price per round needs to, of course, include shipping and handling charges).

    Thanks!

    If it helps to know: I'm happy to use range (target) rounds. I have two 380s: A Walther PK380 and a Taurus PT738 (the one I carry everywhere).

    Hi RickJ... Califdad3 is the one who can find anything like that. There's a ready, Aim, Fire thread on the Dicussion Forum.

    That's a members only site. I'm looking for an online source to get .380 rounds (even if they are "target rounds") for better than about $25 per hundred.


    PS. This is not a hunting issue. Thread moved back to where it was posted. We're working on adding a new board for Guns.

    I will. I'll post the prices that I find so that others can be aware too.

    So far, I've found that WalMart has, by far, the best prices - but I've learned that .380 ammo is in such high demand that most discounters have a hard time keeping it in stock.

    Rick, When I originally answered, this post had been temporarily removed, so I PM'd the message. I see it is back and alive?

    It wasn't removed. It was moved. I initially posted it to a different board - which I later realized should be here where it is now.

    If you ever post in a thread - and the thread is later moved - your notification link (via email or your Profile) will point to where it has been moved to.

    PS. I don't see where you've answered in this thread previously.

    You won't see the original answer as it was Moved in the middle of me answering. I thought it had be removed, not moved. Take Care
    What was your best deal, including shipping?

    I just caught WalMart in stock: I bought two 100 round boxes for $23 per box... so 23 cents per round.

    I've not yet found an online source for better than that.

    I'll burn up 50-60 of them off at the range today or tomorrow with my sons :)

    Ok, I know this is an old thread but I wanted to point out the place I usually go to for my ammo. If you're looking for bulk, there's no better place than AMMOMAN.COM . The website is somewhat cheesy and unprofessional looking but the guy delivers what he promises. The prices are very low and shipping is included in all prices. Great place really.

    The ONLY problem that I have ever had with him is that sometimes he has trouble getting ammo... like right now, he can't get 7.62x39 from Wolf like I use in my SKS and AK... and I see he's also out of .380. He does have a sign up where you can request information on certain calibers. You get emails from him when they come in and when there are specials on them. For the problems in getting ammo from him once in a while, he is still worth checking out due to his low prices and free shipping. I have ordered plenty from him and never been disappointed.

    One time I ordered standard 7.62x39 Wolf from him and I guess he ran out so he shipped Wolf Military Classic for the same price. At the time, there was a 20 cents per box difference in price ($10 for the case).

    Also to be aware of... most of his ammo is sold in bulk. He usually won't break it down into single boxes. It does pay off if you're planning on buying a lot.

    The prices aren't too bad on that site when compared to some places... slightly lower than the average going rate for the ammo I buy. They seem to be having a problem with 7.62x39 also... they seem to be out of it like so many others. Seems to be getting harder to get 7.62 and 5.56 like it was 2 or 3 years ago.

    They did have a good price on .380 Federal Hydra-Shok (my choice for defensive handgun ammo).

    Lately the market has been flooded with the AK and others that use that round so there is lots of competition for getting it. There are lots of sites out there but you have to watch the delivery charges. Some are outragous. Have you ever been to :

    www.Ammoengine.com
    Or
    www.Luckygunner.com

    Those are a type of clearing house where you can see lots of places at once and also see who has what. Luckygunner as part of their site has real time inventory and a promise for it to be in stock.
