    Anyone know what websites are the best for ordering ammunition for .40 S&W?

    I found a few places but I cannot account for their reliability as I have not seen any reviews----

    The best site I have come across is this one:

    http://www.aimsurplus.com/acatalog/Aguila_.40_S_W__180grn_FMJ.html

    Any opinions or suggestions as to sites? I am mainly looking for the cheapest practice / range ammo I can get.

    I currently pay about 10 bucks per 50rds, and I figure that's about right, just want to find the best ....bang for my buck, so to speak :)

    Apparently, a member here (not sure who) maintains this site where others can report/find good deals on guns/ammo. Seems to be pretty helpful, you might give it a try.

    http://gun-deals.com/ammo.php

    As far as Aim Surplus, I have ordered from them before, and they offered good service. What I ordered at the time was unfortunately on backorder, but they informed me within 24 hours and gave me the ETA and the option to wait or cancel the order. The wait was only about 1 week and they promptly shipped when promised. Good deal, good service.

    The biggest thing to consider when ordering online is shipping cost. If you are not ordering at least 1K rounds, it is usually cheaper to buy locally due to the high shipping cost. Over 1K, you are probably going to start getting substantial savings. Also, some places go WAY overboard on shipping (like CheaperThanDirt.com, they are one of the highest on shipping), so be sure you know what the TOTAL price is before you order.

    Additionally, have you considered getting into reloading? If you shoot a lot of .40S&W you will recover your startup costs very quickly. It can be rather enjoyable and rewarding as well.

    Ordered 5K of Wolf 7.62X39 from Sportsman's Guide 2 years ago. It was about 97 dollars per M. Was on back order for nearly 1 year, they kept in touch with me. When order was shipped the price on the stuff had gone up 50 or 60 bucks per thousand but they honored the original price. Speaks pretty well for them. Also have had great service from Natchez Shooters Supply and Wideners.
    all these places have websites so prices and avilability on what you want are posted.

    In regards to Midway this thread has some pretty positive feedback about their customer service.

    Note: I have not dealt with Midway before and am just relaying the opinions of others.

    Best I've found is Georgia arms for the absolutely least-expensive QUALITY bulk ammo on the net. I just got 500 .357 sig range ammo, delivered loose in an ammo can, for $117. they call their stuff 'canned heat', and its new factory loaded right there. Wal-mart by the box is around $200 for 500. second best price is Ammoman, and he has boxes or bulk at very good prices as well. check out both on their .40 prices, you will be pleasantly surprised (and no, i have no affilliation with either company).

    Very good service at good, but maybe not the lowest, prices from Midway. If you are looking for some specific brands and loads rather than just the lowest price, they are worth a look.

    I don't use .40 S&W, but I am into my third thousand rounds of 9mm reloads from outdoormarksman.com. These are described as "factory reloads" and, except for the mixed brass, I cannot tell them from over-the-counter ammo. They come loose, 500/1000 in ammo cans. I have never had a failure. Currently, they offer 1000 .40S&W TMJ for 144.95 plus shipping, and 500 for 74.95 plus shipping. Might be wise to get 500 for a trial. In my experience, the stuff sells fast, so if this interests you, jump.
    Cordially, Jack

    The CDNN stuff isn't the "talon" type hollowpoint just so you know. It IS good ammo (triple checked QC for LE use) and is price very reasonably. :)

    If you have saved your brass, how about these prices:

    I've purchased about a dozen boxes (.38, .357 and .45LC) and had no problems.

    Yes, you ship 'em your empty brass. Return shipping is free with a 10-box order. Nice folks.
