Just bought a 1000 rounds of Wolf .223 55gr FMJ brass rounds for $210 at Sportsman's Guide. That price includes shipping.

It doesn't ship until later this month, but that's OK by me.

Enter code: SPGGUNS10 to get $25 off. Also if you decline their 1st offer to buy their membership when ordering they will offer you a better discount prior to checking out. Taking that offer basically eliminates the shipping cost.

Honestly....Walmart has the cheapest good brass ammo I can find...even better than on-line. Federal 100 rd. Pack is 35.00... American eagle 223 AR is seven bucks a box. Federal nine mm, 20$ a hundred. No s&h and not too far away. Works for me!

I grabbed this deal too. But, you do know it's steel ammo, NOT brass.

FatWallet has cashback @ SG too.

Default Sale at Cabelas

Found the PMC Bronze at Cabelas today for $99/300 with dry box, free shipping if you have their Visa Card.
Ammunition is getting harder to find so I bought 300 even though I'm pretty well stocked up.

It's actually cheaper to but multiples of 300 @ 99.99 instead of the 600 or 1200.

Thanks for the link and code.

Just grabbed two. I forgot to put the code in for free shipping, but I just called them and they hooked me up. That was cool. Not sure BPS would have done that.

Thanks for the link!

I got in on that PMC deal too. Picked up 2 of the 300's and used the $20 rebate code instead of free shipping since it saved me more. 600 rounds shipped for just under $200.

My box of 300 just arrived. $99 + Free Shipping. When I ordered it was supposed to be on backorder till 12/19, but here it is. Container is pretty good size. So far I have stuffed 42 pounds of .223 & 5.56 and still have a little more room.

Woo hoo. Good ol' Walmart. Just picked up 200 rounds at 5 bucks a box. Sunbury, OH area. Tempted to get more, but this puts me at 500 which is good for how much time I get to shoot while still at school in Jersey.

You should go buy more right now! Here in SoCal you cannot find ANY ammo at all. None. It's unbelievable what going on right now with ammo. I only have about 750 rounds of 5.56 and I'm not going to use that until I can get my hands on another 1000 or so. Go shooting and have some fun my friend....

This whole craze is nuts. I just saw an add that's offering 1000 rounds of .223 for $999.99, yep a dollar a round. The sad thing is, someone will pay it.

I like to order from Wisconsincartridge.com just because they are local to me. I looked on their website today and I see this message,

"We are currently running 1 - 2 years behind on 223 Rem orders."

Yikes!

Let me guess. Cheaperthandirt.com

They've always been a rip off during the bad times.

Xmas came again for me i guess just now... Happen to be in WALMART to get my a sandwich from Subway and happen to notice the delivery semi in the back of store. Just on a whelm went to the sporting section and soon as the case was scanned into inventory what do you know I bought out the full truck load pallet of tula and remington .223 before it even hit the shelf. And for some reason it seems to be cheaper. That is a total of 6 cases at 500 rounds for tula per case and a total of 18 of the remington 100 pack bulks. Think I am good now... Yes Tula is steel but at this point I can't be picky. And bulk pack isnt the best but been saving up and had to do it. Going to give out some to a few of my soldiers looking for ammo also and a few guys at the range. Good deeds i believe can be redone in the future.

Walmart here in NY has spotty supplies of American Eagle 20 rds for $10.97. Shoots good but they are limiting to 6 boxes per person per day. Daily trips and I ran out of budget before they ran out of ammo.

I know it sounds crazy Magnetik but unlike alot of people I am not into the reselling field. I instead have been actually given some out without cost as well as exchanging some for other parts to start another project. While many are full of greed and wanting $200 for 100 rounds i feel if i can buy them ( of course I have been saving up because this is 1 of 2 of my hobbies and I don't really spend on anything else besides my kids and wife who also are avid shooters) when available I can keep the hobby honest for us true shooters. So while I might have bought them out in one go, I know that I will be able to help some others continue to get some range time in without having to give an arm and leg.

For those who know that Tulammo works in their AR, I just received 2x500 .223 Herters with two dry boxes from Cabela's, mind you, this is just repackaged Tulammo in Herter's box. My first order was 12-18-12 and it was 5-6 weeks back ordered, then placed another one 12-31-12 again 5 weeks or so to take advantage of the Cabelas cc free shipping expiring at end of December. Both lots arrived today, it was $134.99 for 500 with plastic dry box. Cabela's back order estimation is much more friendlier that Sportsman's Guide estimations.

edit: This item is no longer available for sale or back order, this is a problem since Cabela's has or had a deal with Tulammo packaged as Herter's "We've teamed up with a premier Russian ammunition manufacturer to bring you this winning combination of high-quality, low-priced noncorrosive ammo. Polymer-coated steel cases cycle smoothly. 20 rounds per box." I hope Cabela's is not winding down the sale of ammunition on their website.

My first order was 12-18-12 and it was 5-6 weeks back ordered, then placed another one 12-31-12 again 5 weeks or so to take advantage of the Cabelas cc free shipping expiring at end of December. Both lots arrived today, it was $134.99 for 500 with plastic dry box. Cabela's back order estimation is much more friendlier that Sportsman's Guide estimations.
I have my order for Remington UMC .223, 420 rounds (21 boxes in a dry case) @ $119, had a free shipping code. Is still showing back order, but estimate from Cabela's is 1-23 (at time or order).

So still waiting for mine, hopefully soon.

Hey there rootbrain, I have an order in with Cabela's also for the Rem. UMC .223 (400 rds.) W/dry box for $159.99. I didn't get as sweet a deal as you did but @ 40 cents per rd. I can't complain. With all the craziness that is going on out there your lucky if you can find a supplier with ammo in stock. My order date was 12/30 and I received an email stating that it should be in around 01/25.

I had the Rem. UMC on order as well, and I got an email saying it was canceled back on Dec. 27. What's going on over there at Cabela's??? I ended up getting a bunch of PMC, Herters, and Tula.

I ordered 800 rounds of Rem. UMC on 12/31. As of now, it still shows "In Process", but I've been waiting on that canceled order email to come at anytime.

I've found with Cabela's that it's better to split your order up into separate orders if it is a backordered item...I only do this with free shipping codes.

I have had much better luck getting items shipped in quantities of 10 boxes as opposed to 20 or more. On several occasions, I have had an order of 20-30 PMC that was backordered for 2-3 weeks and I went ahead and placed another order for 10 boxes a few days later. The 10 box ordered is almost always filled first. I don't know if it's just dumb luck, but it seems to work for me and doesn't cost anything more....if you have a free shipping code!

I went to Dicks sporting goods today and was able to buy .223 & 5.56. They had a limit of 6 boxes per customer, so I asked if I could buy 5 boxes of Remington UMC .223 and 5 boxes of Independence AR 5.56 and the guy said oh what the heck, sure. $8.99 for 20, not the best price, but acceptable.

I picked up some Remington UMC 55gr .223 today at Dick's as well. Sadly, I really didn't need it, just the brass mostly, which has been IMPOSSIBLE to find anywhere locally and online... but I bought 6 boxes and had my wife buy 6 and mother-in-law go buy 6. I was quite shocked at how much they got in stock.

Now if they only could get my Remington 700 in .270 I'd be happy. (got 200 in Dick's gift cards or I'd go to Cabelas)

Last week I called Cabelas, and they had MFG I think the brand was, but you had to call, you couldn't do it over the internet. Spent 20 minutes on hold, and the guy on the phone told me he didn't think it was a good idea to use the ammunition in an AR, he has a couple of AR's and would not use the steel ammo, but said just hand on till Feburary when you will see ammunition coming back in stock. Now I realize everyone has an opinion on the steel, but he did seem confident plenty of brass would be available, just hand in there.

I talked with Cabelas on Sat. my orders that were put in between 12-18 and 12-30 are all still valid backorders, none have been canceled. Ship dates range between 1-25 and 3 -25, yes I put in a few orders, they had a smokin deal on 12 ga. 00buckshot 100 rounds for 42 bucks and got good pricing on .223 and 5.56.

Was this just this morning? I was on their website a couple of hours ago and only saw Winchester and American Eagle Tracer rounds for 5.56. They were all sold out.

It was posted here on the forum buy another member on the 12th with the link to Cabela's so as soon as I saw it I jumped on it. When I came back to the post a few hrs. later other members were saying that the 5.56 ammo was sold out. My order should be here Wed. the 16th.

Default Order update

My original order with Cabela's for the Remington UMC Value Pack has now been pushed back to Feb. 28th. ...... But at least they are keeping me informed through emails. ..... Can't complain about that!
