Anybody found any decent priced ammo on-line lately? Looking for some .308 I've googled till my fingers bleed, and it's either old prices, out of stock, or the same thing I can buy over the counter. Just thought I'd see if one of you has found anything good lately. Or if anybody keeps a thread out here updated, I'd apprecaite knowing that too.
Thanks.

Just ordered 1000 rds of 45acp for a tactical response class from Wideners. Not a great price but as good as I can find these days at 324.00 shipped. Its aluminum cased but its not getting reloaded so I don't care.

I have no idea about 308 however, sorry

+1 for ammunitiontogo.com

Just checked availability and prices on 308. They have a bunch in stock.

Never had any issues with them, fast shipping (but I live in Texas and they are based out of Texas), orders always right, never had any backorders from them or canceled orders because they didn't have something they listed on their site.

I also see them at the local gun shows and the guys and gals working there are always very helpful in answering any questions or helping you find what you're looking for.

Not sure what kind of 308 ammo you are looking for. J&G sales has 500 rounds brown bear for $215.00. It is steel cased. That is the best price I have seen.

The recent lack of available and affordable ammo has lead to an unprecedented number of guys learning to reload. I would suggest that everyone atleast take a look at this possibility.

I certainly did. :D

I still buy my ammo since I only recently got all the reloading equipment and figured out how to use it. Got a bunch of cleaned and deprimed cases...gotta spend some time actually making some rounds...once it gets a bit warmer in the garage.

Depends on the caliber, as to reloading. I'm getting my 9mm makarov at between $9-$10 a box of 50 of steel case. The cost of reloading; just the bullets; is close to $5 for 50. Then throw in primers, powder, and the initial cost for brass and dies; and for me: Reloading the 9mm makarov isn't really worth it. Not to save $1 a box. OVER TIME. Same with my .223. Even with tax or shipping; depending; I've been able to get .223 ammo (Steel case) for basically $5 a box of 20. Reloading is $2.50 per 20 for bullets; add in powder, primers, and the initial cost of brass and dies, and I MIGHT save a dollar a box of 20. Not really worth my time.

That's not to say that I don't have any reloading. I reload my hunting rounds. I also keep an eye out for good deals on dies. I picked up some very good 30-06 dies for my M1-garand for $10. I don't reload, but I have the dies in case there is no more ammo. Same with having 9mm makarov dies, 45acp, 30-30, etc... But I only buy these at a garage sale or other similar good deal. I also have a couple pounds of IMR-4895; brick of large rifle; and brick of large rifle magnum primers. I won't use ANY of this for reloading. It's almost cheaper to buy the ammo than to reload it. For me. But if the time ever comes that buying ammo has stopped or become difficult; I will go on a massive reload binge and reload until there are no more primers, powder, or bullets. That ammo will then become my survival stock pile. But for day to day plinking; most of my ammo is cheaper than reloading. Just gotta know where to look.

That price on Dynamit Noble 7.62 NATO at Dan's ammo isn't right. It's $459 a case. The $189 price is for that weird plastic projectile short range training ammo. The other vendors prices on that stuff are probably the same thing.

The Dynamite Noble stuff is blanks. I was about to spend every last dime I had on it at that price.

Somewhat true.
I agree that for blasting ammo reloading is a waste of time. But if you are looking for quality ammo than you need to compare that cost of reloading to cost of premium ammo that can be $1 per shot or more.
I keep some Wolf around in case I need to sight a new scope or if I want to blast a few bucks through my friends M16

I use samcoglobal.com they are usually in line with going rates and have stock. Sometimes they are even much cheaper.

Thank you guys. Lots of good advice and better than I was able to come up with on my own. I did go the reload route too, for .223, I have a Dillon loader. But honestly, I don't think it's cheaper for just target rounds. Now, it's much cheaper for quality rounds. Anyway, thanks again.

What else would "I" really want to shoot my guns for; other than to have fun and blasting. I reload for antelope, deer, and elk hunting. For hand guns, I have 2 boxes of each caliber in quality ammo. E.g. Remington Golden sabers, Hydra-shoks, etc... That is for self defense and carrying. But ALL other ammo is for blasting and having fun. If I go to the range or woods with my .223, it's for fun. I would NEVER spend $20 to shoot a box of 20 rounds. I wouldn't spend $10 to shoot a box of 20 rounds. And I won't spend $5-$7 a box of 20 rounds to reload it if I can spend $5 of surplus or russian ammo.

Same with all my handgun ammo. I buy lead 45acp 230 grain RN for $11.50 a box of 50. I buy 115 grain FMJ 9mm at Walmart for $9.96 a box of 50. Even with reloading the cheapest lead; it would cost almost $7-$8 a box of 50 for 9mm and about $10 for the 45acp.

I can understand reloading for hunting. I can understand reloading if you're into shooting as a sport, like accuracy type events. And there use to be a time when I was younger, where you could reload ammunition at about 1/2 to 1/3 the price of manufactured ammunition. But even with the increased price of ammo; that's no longer the case. Now, if you're the type that ONLY shoots fmj and HP ammo to practice and plink with; because you're under some belief that you have to practice with the same ammo that you will use for self defense; then definitely reloading will be cheaper than spending $20-$30 a box on ammo. But for those who have no problem shooting steel cased ammo, lead ammo, surplus ammo, etc...; then reloading is definitely not worth it.

What the reloading naysayers always forget is that ammunition prices always go up. For those that cast, reloading is less expensive. For those who bulk purchase, reloading is less expensive. And for those who shoot premium self defense loads or hunting loads, reloading is less expensive. There are calibers that make little sense to reload. 9MM and 7.62x39 in ball comes to mind. And surplus ammunition also tends to be less expensive also. Also conveniently ignored are "deals". I've been buying 30-06 and .308 brass for about 5 cents each. I can't tell you how many thousands of primers that cost a little over a penny apiece. Last year, I bought over 3,000 M-80 "pulls" for about $100. And at least 10 pounds of powder averaging about $10 a pound. Deals are out there. You just have to look.
And for those who insist on including amortization costs for equipment? I've been using the same Rockchucker for over 30 years. And since we're there, "deals" can be found in reloading equipment also.
