Default Cheapest CCI Mini Mags in bulk?

Subject basically explains it. CCI mini mags are all I shoot (for two years in my Walther P22), and now in my new M&P 15-22 MOE.

I'm lookin for the cheapest bulk Mini Mags I can find. I don't particularly want Blazers even though they're much cheaper as they're just messier than the coated Mini Mags. I torture tested my P22, which is supposed to be ammo picky. I picked the ammo listed as one of the best. And over the course of a year, put over a 1000 rounds through it...without ever cleaning it, not even when I bought it. The slide just got slow towards the end and didn't want to feed the initial round into the chamber. But it still fired flawlessly. Can't do that with dirty or no coated bullets, haha.

Yes, I'm a 22lr ammo snob....but it's a TOTALLY different story for the 5.56mm that we got, lol. We'll fire anything but Wolf through it.

thanks!

Try some CCI tactical 22s. Made for just what you shoot. Just as accurate as MiniMags in my two main 22s (15-22 and Clark 10-22) On sale next weekend in Cabela's for $17.99/375.

Regular price is only $20 so 10% isn't super but better than nothing, Still a good value. I'm more suprised by the $5.5 minimags instead of 7. (22%)

I confess to being a 22 snob as well, but with the prices steadily rising I started shopping and running field tests.

I have used MiniMags for 35+ years, but I can't stomach $5.5 for 100.

Short story long, I tried Federal Bulk Packs (550 rounds) from WalMart and was pleasantly surprised at the accuracy. consistency and cleanliness. When I first tried them they were $12 or $13 and I bought five bricks. When they went to $15 I bought 5 more. When they hit $17 I used a shopping cart and got 10. Last time I looked they were $19 or so.

I've shot them in several pistols and rifles and haven't found a misfire yet.

I totally agree. As good as mini mags are I can't see spending 6 bucks for 100 when I can spend $20.01 (tax included) at walmart for federal bulk 550. IMO they shoot almost just as clean as the cci's and the accuracy is fine for what they are.

Cheapest I've paid lately for 40gr Mini-Mag is $5.90/100rds plus shipping... there should be better deals out there, but I just decided to pick up a case in a pinch.

Federal Game-shok 40gr (almost equivalent to Mini-Mag) can be had around $5.58/100rds last I saw.

Someone was saying in another forum there might be CCI 40gr "Tactical" on sale at Cabela's this week or next (brick and mortar only) for $17.99/375rds. Not positive on this one since I don't have a Cabela's locally.

I shoot about 100o rounds in a weekend. Needless to say, In terms of price, I constantly scour the internet for the best deals. Right now, PalmettoStateArmory.com has the best price on CCI Blazers at $14.99 per 525 box. Cheapest Mini Mags are found at wholesalehunter.com at $5.20 per 100.

^Wow, thanks!

edit: bahh, the shipping for the CCI made it more expensive than what I'd get in person. Hate when that happens

edit 2: oh duh..were talking bulk right? hehe

I know it seems like "a lot" to pay when you're lookin at $6.00 per hundred, but in reality, it's still the cheapest I shoot, it's one of the best rounds I've ever used in the Mini Mags. I'm definitely going to give their Tactical 22's a try.

Lots of good info so far guys; I'm glad this thread is helping others also!

I definately agree you could be paying 30$+ per 100 for .223

Hell, I've got some TAP Hornady .223's that cost $25 because they're 75 grain'ers......AND THAT'S FOR 20 ROUNDS. I'd imagine that they're even more spendy in5.56 (our Stag Arms 2t is 5.56mm NATO, so it does both that and .223's safely) All things considered, Mini Mags are a deal. I can't wait to try the new Tactical 22's from CCI; I'm sure that they're a winner too!

When you add in shipping (at least for 1500 rounds) the Gander Mountain deal is better. I ordered 1500 rounds from Gander Mountain for $84.95 with free shipping. Wholesale Hunter wanted $12.50 for the cheapest shipping method (UPS ground) for a total of $90.50 for 1500. And I ordered from Gander Mountain Monday and received them today.

If you order larger quantities then the freight per box might drop and make the Wholesale Hunter price better. Also note that the Gander Mountain deal is for the 40 grain round nose while Wholesale Hunter has the 36 grain hollow point. So if you prefer one over the other that might affect your decision.

Just my $0.02.

Have been buying Federal bulk packs at WalMart for $15.47. When you add sales tax that is $.03044777 per round.
They have been bright, shiney, and clean and shoot well in both my 617 and High Standard pistol.

Me too! It's about the cleanest 22LR ammo I've shot. Much less carbon residue. It also feeds better for me in cold weather than any of the lubed stuff (including CCI).

Nice to see I'm not the only one Someone showed me a deal on CCI Blazers(525) for..$15-16 and I thought I'd try to see what the total would be for 3 boxes and it didn't beat Ammo Bros./Turners haha I didn't want to find out how many boxes it would take for it to be a deal No way I could pull the trigger on that

For the people with the money:

Thanks Mr. T!

Haven't seen a price that low in at least 18 months.

As for spending $84.97 on ammo all at one time, that's pretty cheap compared to buying a box or three of 20 rounds for centerfire rifles in 2 or 3 different calibers. Even at $15/20 rounds, that $85 gets you about 113 centerfire rounds vs. 1500 Mini-Mags in 22LR.

The Gander Mtn. price with discount is only 5.66 cents per round which seems like a pretty good bargin given how well it shoots.

I like the Federal Bulk, but when CCI MiniMags were about $5.50/100 the Federal Bulk was under $9/525. In the last two years the price of Federal Bulk 22LR has increased by about 100% in my area while the MiniMag price is up by about 18%. That makes the MiniMags a much better deal than they used to be. The Gander Mtn. price makes it an even better deal!

Oh, I definitely understand. Right now: it's because I don't have much money at all so there's no way I can get that. When I do have a bit of money, that's still a good chunk out of my checking account, know what I mean? I'd definitely save money in the long run but for then and there, I'd feel bad spending $80-100+ on expendable brass objects haha $20 for 2 is fine with me at this time. I'm pretty jealous of guys n' gals being able to spend $150 on 10398420338 .22 lr rounds I wish I could do that and feel okay about it.

I had plenty of those days in my past. I don't miss them at all, but they did teach me how to live within my means...

I haven't bought a box of 38 Special, 357 Magnum, or 30-06 in two years because I can't stomach the current prices, but luckily I got into reloading just before all the prices went crazy. I think I have only bought two boxes of centerfire ammo in the last two years, and that was Walmart 30-30 ammo for deer season. Mostly I have shot 22LR in the last year, in part because it is what I can afford.

Personal finances are all about cash flow, and if you don't have the cash, all you can do is try and minimize the flow part...

Lets all hope that 2011 is a more prosperous year for all of us. I mean, heck, hasn't the recession been over for almost a year now? Haven't seem much of that recovery around here, but that chicken in every pot has to be here real soon now.

Here's hoping you can afford a heap of CCI MiniMags in the near future!

Walmart consistently has them for $6.47 by me which is , or has got to be, as good as you can find when you deduct shipping costs. $5.66 shipped, please show me so I can buy some.

And my Walmart has also the $14.47/325 rds. Federal Target Match Grade bulk packs on the same area as the $6.47 Mini Mags, so I can really stock up on .22LR , and use pretty damn good stuff almost all the time and awesome stuff a lot more times than used to be.

And my Walmart has also the $14.47/325 rds. Federal Target Match Grade bulk packs on the same area as the $6.47 Mini Mags, so I can really stock up on .22LR , and use pretty damn good stuff almost all the time and awesome stuff a lot more times than used to be.
Yup, the walmart by me has CCI Minimag 100rd and stinger 50rds for 6 bucks each, and federal bulk 525 for 18 bucks! Its about a mile from the range and on the way, so for me....can't beat it with a stick

The $5.66 deal was through Gander Mountain when you bought 1500 rounds (3x 500 bulk buy) with a $20 off coupon and free shipping. That was in December and doesn't appear to be going any more. Guess I should've bought six thousand instead of three thousand, lol. We'll just have to keep searchin and posting the best deals on this thread to keep us in cheaper CCI's.

As far as that Wal-Mart price, it is a good deal if you can't find them shipped for cheaper, but you can find them cheaper online...just takes work....and this thread. They're fitty cents more at my Wal-Mart, lol.

UPDATE UPDATE UPDATE As of 1-19-2011 2:50 PM Pacific Time
Stop the presses.....c'mon and get'm, get'm while they're hot!!!!!!!!

If you want to get CCI 36gr Hollow Point Mini Mags for $5.66 per hundred, follow the instructions below. (They don't have the 40 grain round nose in bulk in stock....hollow points are more fun, they make small stuff explode, hehehe) The promo code STILL WORKS. I just ordered three thousand more! (do 1500 per order which is 3x 500 to get the $20 off at checkout). If you do 1500 at a time, you get $20 off EACH TIME.

Y'all better get in on this before I buy the rest! And no, I don't work for CCI or Gander Mountain, I'm just your local CCI ammo whore. Info below (copied from earlier in this thread)

Description:
Gander Mountain offers online CCI .22LR 40GR MINI-MAGs 1500 rounds - $84.97 Add 3 (500 round cases) to cart for the total of $104.97. Apply coupon code "g7746" for $20 off $100 to get the total down to $84.97. With free shipping and no sales tax for many states this is one of the best prices we have seen for Mini-mags. Explosive performance and deadly accuracy will leave those varmints eating dust. When you sight up a gopher or groundhog, you need your target to go down and stay down. With CCI® Varmint Ammunition you get devastating performance time after time. 500 Rounds. Shipped ground only. Sit back and just do some plinking without worrying about the price you are spending on ammunition.
Designed for consistency and reliability
Seamless jacket for improved accuracy
CCI's most popular plinking ammunition
500 Rounds
Item # 428685 (not available)

You want item number 428675 for the Hollow points....


It comes out to $84.97 per 1500 which is $5.66 per hundred....SHIPPED....sweet deal!!!! Stock up and stop payin $7 per hundred.

link to the bulk 500 round deal (buy three, enter promo code to get the deal)

I bought about 3000 rounds from Gander Mountain. They weren't technically on sale; periodically Gander Mountain has coupons for $20 off $100 orders. They sell them in units of 500 for $35, although they actually ship the usual 100 round sleeves. So you would order 3 units of 500 each for $105 and then get the $20 off. Shipping is free (at least it was at the time) so you wind up paying a total of $85 for 1500 rounds, or $5.67 per 100 round sleeve.

Keep an eye on the Gander Mountain site or sign up for their e-mail mailing list to catch the next sale. I'm new to the .22LR world so I don't know how often they have this; I just got lucky.

It's really a wicked good deal and I haven't paid that little for them in at least two years and it's all I shoot through my M&P 15-22 and my Walther P22. (my two other 22lr's get bulk).

of course when I'm broke!!!


I do most of my shooting at a range across the river from me in PA. it's $20 bucks and allows up to 12 gauge buckshot...all my pistols, my .22LR rifles (and all pistol caliber carbines) and my shotguns as long as no slugs... so it's workable. The other thing is there is a Walmart 1.6 miles down the same highway. So I can stop and pick up ammo to shoot on my way or replenish / stock up on the way home. They don't have the MOST selection but it's good enough and I did the math, only on CERTAIN onloine purchases is it better. Of course these special cci deals nonwithstanding.

Don't worry TAKticool, this promo code has been good at least since I ordered my first 3k on 12-19-2010. This promo code might stick around for a while since it's not actually a sale, but a promo code....

Will Gander Mountain ship to New York?

*EDIT* I got the answer by attempting to order and it will not let me.
