What are some of the better websites to order milsurp ammo from? Aim has great prices but they wont ship to were.

I looked at ammoman,cheaperthandirt, Natchess,sog but they wont ship, briefly looked at midway to. im looking for 7.62x 54 R.
i went to a gun store yesturday and they had the audacity to sell the 440 rd cans for 131 and 880 for 230. so no price cuts

Try taking a look at These guys have a variety of stuff, plus shipping is already included in their quoted prices. Out of curiosity what caliber are you looking for?

Darkknight, where are you located? That would help on giving you places to buy ammo. Mark

If you tried all of those places, I'd be willing you're in a state where you can't receive ammo Illinois?

Let us know where you are, and good luck.

That's probably why they won't ship to you. ********** probably has a law on that. In fact they probably have several.

It is legal to ship ammo to Illinois outside of Cook county. Legally the shipper must have a copy of your FOID card before shipping. There are some companies that will not ship anywhere in Illinois, Midway USA is one. Jim.

Why the problems with Illinois?

If it's 7.62X54R you want, here's where you might want to get it! Best prices I've found so far on the NET.

$69.95 for 800 rounds light ball
$29.95 for 300 rounds heavy ball

A huge plus one on AIM. I love that place. While not the cheapest, I've had good success with the 70's Hungarian light ball they sell.

Why the problems with Illinois?

Mainly because they don't feel that the hassle of keeping FOID copy records is worth the $ they'd make by selling to Illinois.

It's funny because Midway won't ship to Illinois but one of their bigger competitors will and doesn't even require a copy of the FOID. I don't want to jinx it by saying who.
