Where to buy ammo/accessories online??

I need some input,

Where is good place to buy handgun ammo and accessories online?

Prices need to be good and even more importantly, they must have the items in stock. If they don't, they need to have good communication as to what's not in stock and when it will be in or what is an equivalent replacement.


I've run into 2 situations in the last week where I've made purchases and the products were not in stock, even though the website said it was. The first was with a place called the Armory. Decent ammo prices, but when I received my order a week after I ordered it, I found the bulk of it was not there. Inside the box was a handwritten note saying that 1 item was out of stock and the 2nd missing item will NEVER be in stock.

The second issue involved Kleen Bore. I ordered product from them online on 4/28/05. As of 5/9/05 no product. I called them today and was told that it wasn't shipped due to backorders. Once again, poor communication.

Anyone have any online shopping suggestions?

unfortunately i can't get ammo shipped to me in illinois... i'm actually going to see if i can get deliveries schedules for weekends at the farm in WI so i can be there to recieve them, because buying retail ammo, particularly range ammo, adds up way to friggin fast.

so i've never ordered ammo, but i've ordered accessories from companies that sell ammo at a discount as well. three i'd recommend are:

midwayusa.com
natchezss.com
cheaperthandirt.com

three of the bigger ones that i'd bet most of the people on this board have dealt with. if you dig around a lot or watch the auction sites you can sometimes find better deals but on the whole the three of those will be able to sell your ammo and accessories competetively priced and in whatever volume you need.

I order 1000 rounds of 9mm three different brands from natchezss.com order was filled and delivered just fine. This has been my only order with them but happy with it and the prices.

And I'll add another ammo/supplies dealer;
