That sounds like a good deal if it wasn't from Cheaper than Dirt. They'll never get any more of my business and a lot of people on here feel the same way.

CTD had a 20 round box of 7.62x39 at $30+ right after the scare.

Cheaper than dirt was the worst of the price gougers during the pre-Obama scare. They were part of the reason prices got so high in the first place. Do a search on here and you'll find a few threads about it.

i hate the fact that they wont sell most items to me in ny (although im not in the city so most is legal besides hi cap mags made after 1994),also high shipping prices, and only average item prices

so you wont buy it for $4.79 at a such great deal just because they price jumped us by $20? pre-obama

Correct. Besides, I was able to buy in bulk from Cabelas during the height of the scare for barely over $5 a box and that was for the 154 gr Wolf SP, which I consider to be a better round.

It's pretty easy to get x39 for <$0.20/round if you buy in bulk...

If you pay for ammo online with a credit card, your info is out there anyway.

Screw that.

So? How else would they know your not 12? Its gonna be either that or have someone wait on delivery truck to sign for the package. Guess what, all transactions at the gun stores and stuff are on security camera too. They ask to see your ID anywhere you buy ammo if there doing there job and following the law. Its pretty painless to scan or take a picture of ya ID and send it to them via email or fax, and they are a reputable company. I have ordered from them before and will again. Cheaper than dirt on the other hand will not get any of my business and apparently don't want it since they could never get my credit card billed and customer service was less than helpful when I called.

Screw Cheaper Than Dirt. I understand supply and demand economics and what the market will bear. I still disagree with their outright gouging of so many faithful customers. I loved em but no more of my money will go there.


Aimsurplus is great as are a few others out there. You can find five dollar a box at plenty of good places.

I am seeing 7.62x39 wolf for $29.99 per 100. Golden Tiger for 6.99 per 20.

Lots and lots of both.

Prices are coming down in gun shops anyway.

I have no opinion on CTD.

AIM is a great company to do business with.

I had no customer relationship with CTD before Obama and based on their actions I don't expect to be forming one in the future.

MidwayUSA is hardly ever the cheapest, but they didn't increase prices at all during the "scare/shortage," and they allowed backorders on most items even when the timeline stretched into many months, so they also get my vote as a good place to buy from.

I don't see why people get all tweaked about CTD offering ammo at high prices. If they were really overpriced people would have bought at other stores. If everyone was overpriced... well that was just the fact of the market at that point.

Big5 wanted $18 + tax for a box of 20 7.62x39 a couple weeks ago. I couldn't believe it. Granted, they weren't cheap surplus rounds (I think they were Remington?) but geez, after tax that's a buck a round.

US-made, brass cased 7.62x39mm has never been cheap and always close to the price of .308 Winchester, sometimes even above it. Since many local stores sell .308 for $20+/box of 20, the price quoted doesn't shock me.

Yeah, CTD is pretty awful. They are some of the worst gougers around. They won't get my business either. This whole little fake shortage and scare created by the gun business was sickening. What's downright hilarious is that some dealers are still trying to pretend there is one, and even worse, some people still buying into it!

Cabelas last week had new manufactured, non-corrosive Russian (forgot the brand; its all the same for me) for $4.49/box; Had Brown Bear for $5.50/box. I got there after day 5 of the sale and there was tons on the shelf. I'm also seeing my dealers stocks of 9mm sitting week after week unsold at $16/box. Seems like things are "easing up".

Cabelas had a two-week sale on non-corrosive Russian Ulyanovsk 7.62x39 at $4.49 a box that unfortunately ended yesterday. Has to be what phrogpilot was talking about above. Wasn't planning to get any more but then got two Cabelas $10 off coupons in the mail yesterday. Since I was nearby at Best Buy last night anyway I went in and picked up 25 more boxes, using two coupons which brought it down to about 500rds for $100 out the door. 20 cents a round including tax/shipping ain't bad. They've had this sale a couple times since Thanksgiving and could again.

It's pretty much Wolf steel jacket 122 grain and my WASR loves the stuff...

Oh, and for anyone who thinks Cheaper Than Dirt isn't a bunch of fearmongers, here's a little gem off their new $2,399.00 (yes you read that right, and that's not including the $150 shipping for it) 30-day survival kit page


Emergency and Survival Kits - When an emergency hits, we don't always have enough warning to prepare for it. The movie 2012 released on November 13, describes what could potentially happen on 12/21/2012 based on the end of the Ancient Mayan calendar. Throughout history, the Mayan calendar correctly identified evolutionary events. According to the calendar we are now in the Fourth and Final age. Whether you believe or not, it still makes you think, what if all the electronics suddenly stopped working, (people would be saved from your stupid price gouging)an asteroid struck the earth, sunspots erase magnetic stored data, a flu pandemic effected millions, would you be able to survive with what you currently have. Fortunately you have time to prepare and we have taken the guess work out of it for you.

That is priceless: using a Hollywood movie as a prediction for what could happen in 2012. What a load of junk. That might work on children, but any rational adult can see right through it. If I had ever trusted that site...that right there would do it for me.

I'd love a link to that The Dark Knight, so I can marvel at it myself :D

Ive neverordered from Brownells, but i can tell you that of all of the major online retails have cheaper shipping than CTD. I was going to buy ammo from them a while back and they wanted $25 to ship it. Ill take my business to Natchez and pay less than $10 for shipping, thanks.

Forget Cheaper Than Dirt, they are dirt as far as I'm concerned.

They attempted to tke ridiculous advantage of the ammo shortage at the time.

Also their bizarre claims of accuracy for some horribly overpriced ammo reminded me of JC Whitney (this magnetic collar on your fuel line increases mileage by up to 20%!)

I've dealt with AIM a few times, and I'd buy from them again.

CTD had a 20 round box of 7.62x39 at $30+ right after the scare.

You weren't dumb enough to buy it then, were you?

I've no complaint about their service, way better than average actually. When they have the best price I buy, when they don't I buy from who does.

Brown Bear .308 FMJ for $7 a box is pretty darn good right now too, seeing that at Academy their Monarch .308 is $9/a box.

You got to factor in price + shipping whenever you shop. Obviously on a few boxes Academy will be cheaper.

I wrote a few threads on CTD prices being obscene, and I feel vindicated with this thread. I'm glad to see you folks with some backbone. I called CTD and tried to tell them that we were laughing at them at the time, and they didn't care. I'm emailing them a link to this thread tomorrow, and can't wait to see what they say.

Other than that, I've been finding 7.63 * 39 much cheaper lately, still hard to find here in Phoenix, but still much cheaper.

BECAUSE THEY SCREWED US! It was an artificial crisis, and think of Rahm Emanuel, "Never let a crisis go to waste.". They contributed to a false economic disaster for us gun lovers, and they were not alone. A few other companies are also on the list. We promised that we would never support a company with such low affinity for our lifestyle.

For me the only thing CTD is good for any more is the magazine to look through. Doesnt matter if people bought the ammo or not when they raised prices to those ridiculous prices. Other companys such as AIMsurplus and classicarms kept their prices down. CTD shouldnt of done that to their customers. Anyways, Wolfs been only $5 at dunhams $6-8 dollars is what it ranges to.

Wally, I definitely did not buy at that price. I made sure to write down who gigged their customers. I refuse to buy from CTD ever again. I used to be a regular customer but they can go eat a donkey ****.

Glad to see that I am not the only one who feels that way about CTD. I don't even read the catalog anymore. I didn't see anyone else nearly as bad during the whole shortage. Used to buy from them, but never again.

December 18, 2009, 10:23 PM
I'll probably never do business with CTD because they tried to screw gun owners, I'm simply going to try to return the favor.

EDIT:
I have not done business with online businesses that want my DL for ammo purchase as well. I'm just willing to pay a little more to avoid the extra hassle if need be, most of my 7.62 comes from Sportsman's Guide.
