    I have (4) .45's, and did not get in front of the ammo purchasing curve...my BAD!

    If anyone has a source for bulk 45 ACP FMJ, please send me a PM or email. I've spent days looking with no luck.

    I'm not trying to horde, just trying to get some ammo to practice with (picking up a new Sig Equinox P220 soon - and short of .45).

    Any help mucho appreciated...

    There's a bottleneck in the link - MUCH higher demand. Wait and look around as you can.

    Yeah, but if I let you have some then I have to let him have some...and all that means is there's less for me and we can't have that, can we?


    Georgia Arms has some with a 5-7 week wait. Ammoman.com had some listed yesterday...I think it was Wolf FMJ. That's about all I have seen recently.

    Cabelas had some 230 grain gold dots this past weekend online.

    I check 6 sites each day when it's time to buy .45's 3 times a year.

    Thanks folks. I'll post in the WTB section.

    I was hoping to buy 500/1,000 bulk to get a decent(?) price.

    I hope the manufactures just under forecasted their Q1 numbers (Obama factor), and we finally reach an equilibrium in the chain...

    Unfortunately those in "desperate need" are the ones who are making gougers more powerful.

    Just keep lookin' You'll find some. For example, I spent over 3 months looking for .45 and finally, just a week ago, found a supplier. I drive a truck, and have checked literally well over 100 places across the country. I could tell you where I found mine, but then I would be SOL when I want to replenish. So for now, I will keep my $14.99/box $275/case .45 acp a secret.

    Ive a pile sitting in a shop down the road. I will learn how long it takes for that pile to be depleted. Not very long at all. If several CHL Classes run 20 each and all shoot a box, that pile be gone in a month or less.

    I've learned the fine art of selective back-ordering. It takes a couple of weeks to get rolling, but then the ammo starts coming in with regularity.....and delivered to my doorstep without a search.

    I bought a Dillon 550B so I wouldn't be looking for ammo all the time...........Now I spend my time looking for primers.
