I don't know about this supplier. There prices look good for S&B although I am not sure whate the shipping charges and handling charges run. I will be interested in the responses.

I believe Natchez Shooting Supply has the 9mm ammo on sale for about $100/1000. However, I don't know hat shipping and handling charges compare.

As an aside, I have heard nothing but good about Ammoman and have been very pleased with the service I have received through them. His prices are higher but they include shipping so I don't know where you end up on an "out-the-door" comparision.

I order a case of S&B in 357 Sig three weeks ago and I am still waiting for it. S&H was higher than I thought at $27.00 dollars. He is less money than the ammo man by almost $70.00 dollars cheaper. I would have bought it from Cheaper than Dirt for the same money but they were out. I have no clue when I am going to get it. I e-mailed them and they said it's coming from factory warehouse at S&B.

I have been very pleased with the prices and service from Natchez. Natchez will give you the total price over the phone, including shipping. The ammo arrives in under a week (Tennessee to Texas). I have also received good service from Claflin.

Posts: 237 has been 100% reliable and their pricing is competitive. All advertised prices include shipping. In my locale, stuff always shows up at my door in 3-4 business days.

That's what mail order / e-commerce is all about.

Posts: 699 has been 100% reliable for me too and I have to agree with ZeusOne that it take around 3-5 days for it to get to my house from the time I order it. Less then one week, not bad at all.

You can't go wrong with

I have never order from so I can't comment on them.

Just looked at, doesn't seem like thay have anything more than Barnaul & S&B.

You can't go wrong using Eric is a good guy & will take care of your orders real fast. I don't agree that his prices are any higher than the other guys, especially when shipping cross country.

You might want to check ou Their prices have always been great and their service has been excellent. I live in Lower Alabama, not too far from them. They even picked up some ammo at the distributor and met me not too far from the house to save shipping charges. Service like that you can't beat.

I've had good luck with SGammo and Ammo To Go. Both are priced well and have the harder to find "LE" loads more often than not.
Here's my credo: There are no good guns, There are no bad guns. A gun in the hands of a bad man is a bad thing. Any gun in the hands of a good man is no threat to anyone, except bad people.

Great folks, fast shipping

I know this is an old thread, but there didn't seem to be a lot of response from people who've actually dealt with BulkAmmo.

Last week I was looking for some good .223 ammo (you all know how hard it is to find that right now!) and they were the only site that had any of the good stuff for sale (Remington). I was wary of dealing with an internet company I hadn't heard of from friends, but decided to place an order after a bit of thought. Imagine my surprise when three days later my box was at the front door! Their prices aren't bad, and their shipping policy seems to be same-day if possible. None of this 4-8 weeks to process your order like some of the other sites I've dealt with.

They're out of most rifle ammo now, like every other store and website, but they're great people. I've got them bookmarked and I'll use them again.

another vote for ammoman ... I have purchased several cases of 9mm from them, both in 500-rd and 1000-rd lots, delivery is as promised and prices seem reasonable ... gonna check natchez now, I need a refill and ammoman seems to be a bit low ...

I have ordered from Bulk Ammo. They keep their inventory updated on the site to the minute. If they don't have the item or caliber in stock keep checking during the day as they may get some in. That's how I scored some 22lr.

Unfortunately, Natchez won't ship to TN addresses.

Romeojn, If you want to know about this or mention that you were happy with them it is encouraged that you do so instead of bumping an ancient thread from 2001.
