Advice on where to buy ammo?

As the title says, I'm looking for some suggestions on where to buy ammo online or locally in the Tampabay area. The calibers I need are 32 acp, 380 acp and 12 gauge.I've been doing some looking and I've found what appear to be good prices at, but I don't know if the brands are known to be good performers; such as wolf performance bi-metal fmj in the 380 @ $58 for 500 rounds. Dynamit Nobel brass case fmj in the 32 @ $66 for 500 rounds. Wolf 00 buckshot @ $70 for 250 rounds.

However most things in life that are cheap tend to be so with reason. Obviously I'm most concerned with jams in the automatics, I can't see any need for high priced ammo in the pump 12 gauge though. Any suggestions, ideas and feedback would be appreciated.

Here is a list of some good online ammo stores, not in any order:

From my personal expierence both Ammoman and Aimsurplus are very good with fast shipping and customer service.

Try Florida Ammo Traders at 6001 Johns rd. in Tampa north of the airport. They have military surplus and commercial ammo and the prices aren't bad. The surplus however is cheaper from AIM surplus on line. They also go to all the local gun shows. If you want anything other than ammo from them, you are better off buying it at their gun show table. Their store is a mess and they probably won't be able to find what you want. Their ammo however is better organized. They are also very much into military surplus guns.

Georgia Arms also goes to the Tampa gun shows and their ammo is good quality and reasonably priced. Stay away from the ammo sold by the dealer from Old Town, Florida at the local gun shows. I tried some and it was very inconsistant in quality. I buy some of Georgia Arms ammo every time I see them at the gun shows. They are at or 1-800-624-6861

If you are near Brandon, Second Amendment Armory on Hwy. 60 has a good selection of ammo and aren't too expensive. They also have some unusual calibers and military surplus. They also sell military surplus guns and have some hard to find ones but they aren't cheap.

Southern Ohio Guns has some good prices on .380. I bought 1000 rounds of Sant Barbara ammo for $80. They also have 1000 rounds of Dynamit Noble for $90. The Santa Barbara is good quality and has worked well in my pistol.

Are these ammo web sites still reputable? Never ordered ammo online.

Don't forget I just bought some .45ACP, .357mag, and some 9mm luger. Pretty good prices. I bought all of it in the Magtech brand. I had some good luck with their .357 ammo before so thought I would try some other cartridges as well. Magtech burns very clean, unlike Wolf which was pretty darn nasty.

Oh I forgot to mention, I bought from them online and not the super store nearby.

Ammo to Go

I use these and Natchez and Aim for mail order. Cabelas prices are rarely good, but they are reputable.

I like

Some of the best prices and selection and fast delivery times. They rarely have .380 in stock these days though, but that's true everywhere it seems. 12 ga they typically have an assortment at good prices.
