I'm going on vacation by Eagle River/Rhinelander/Hiles Township and need to know where ammo is sold the cheapest!?

Hopefully someone has some insight!

Thanks a lot,

What cartridge are you looking for?

July 13, 2009, 11:49 AM
.22, .223, 9mm and 7.62x54r

I have 500rds of .223 in stock and will have 500rds of 9mm in stock later this week when the bullets arrive. .223 is $203/500rds and 9mm is $23.73/100rds. I don't load for x54R so I don't have any.

The cheapest place will always be Wal-Mart, be availability is spotty.......

Don't know if there are many Walmart stores in northern WI. Best I can think of is Wausau. Iron Mtn has a HD but I don't think there is a WM north of Wausau besides up here in Houghton and Marquette. Depending on where you are coming from Green Bay or De Pere might be your last resort on the east side and maybe La Crosse on the west.

There is a Wally World in Rhinelander. Also one each in Minoqua, Merrill, and Antigo. You call call ahead as you are nearing them and ask, they will set it aside for you.

I'm envious man. I lived in Eagle River from '71 to '78. The most wonderful place in the world to grow up.

Back then the best place to buy ammo and guns would have been Holiday gas station or the Western Auto store west of town. The Western Auto also carried snowmobile parts.

I just got back from Thousand Island Lake on the Cisco Chain. Stopped by Wally world in Minocqua on the way by...didn't notice if they had ammo. Muskies are hot.

I hunt and fish in Tomahawk. Have found this place to be helpful, especially for some older calibers. Veiguts might have what you need, look it up.
Not too far from Rhinelander.

Fleet Farm, Farm & Fleet.... can't we just all get along?

I can't recall the name, but there is a good sized, old fashioned sporting goods store with squeaky wood floors and a good collection of rifles, pistols shotties and plenty of ammunition on the South end of the main street of downtown Rhinelander.

Last time I was on my way back from a couple of weeks on the Cisco Chain I found it by accident. My wife had to use a pry bar to get me away from a rack of Milsurps they had.

The nice thing about Wisconsin up there is that just about every county has some public shooting ranges off on side roads. There's a nice little one up by Land O Lakes, right on the border with the UP and there's a good trap club open to the public at the Gateway Resort in Land o Lakes.

We go for the fishing and the natural sights but always bring along a few guns for a way to spend a rainy or windy day.

Good luck and have fun. Just make sure to leave a few walleye and a musky or two for me later this summer.

So how was the walleye fishing on Thousand Island Lake?

We get a cabin on Mamie Lake on the South end of the chain later in the summer and usually fish for walleye. But last year I hooked a 52 inch monster musky by accident, while trolling for walleye, so now I'm the one "hooked".

So how was the walleye fishing on Thousand Island Lake?

Most everybody was fishing Cisco for walleye.....musta been a hatch goin' on there. That's where we saw the guide boats headed everyday anyway. Smallies were slow on Thousand Island too, but panfish and Muskies were hot. We boated five with 48 being the biggest, had lots of follows, had one cut the line at the boat and had one monster break my sons pole and get off before we could land her. Saw walleye hunters working West Bay hard and the hump in Mamie.....don't know what they were catchin' tho.

You stay at Bent's Camp on Mamie?
