    Living in a rural area, I have a long drive to a gun shop, or to Wally World. I have been buying ammunition over the internet for a long time. I have found some good deals at Sportsman's Guide, Impact Guns, AIM, etc. I recently made a purchase from Graf and Sons, and have to say I got a better price than Wally World, and low priced shipping to boot. They took my order on a Sunday night, and Fed Ex delivered it the next Wednesday morning. I will always check them first, before I use another business.

    Graf and Sons is one of my favorites online. I purchase a good bit of reloading supplies from them, as they are the best source for 7.5X55 Swiss brass, dies, etc. that I've found. In addition, they do one thing that MidwayUSA refused to do for me: hold in-stock items until backordered items are in to save shipping charges. Not talking about holding them for weeks, but just a day or two. MidwayUSA refused to do that on one order, while Graf had no problems whatsoever.

    Keep in mind Thunder where he is at, Wal-Mart might be more exspensive than where you are at. Usually Wal-Mart here on the Gulf Coast are exspensive with ammo

    When I buy in bulk online I purchase from www.natchezss.com , their prices are fair on some things and quite good on others including 9mm.

    I like Grafs' re manufactured wad cutters by Precision Cartridge for target practice with my 357 mag, and Walmart only has Winchester white box FMJ for $4 more per 50 rounds, not to mention the $10 for gas to get there and back.

    I've been considering setting up a business to sell higher quality ammo and hard-to-get calibers on the internet (i.e., not competing with WalMart, Dicks, Galyans, Cabella's and Gander Mtn), but everyone I've tried to get interested in that project assumes (1) you can't ship it; (2) shipping costs will place the total retail price through the roof; (3) no one will buy it off the internet; and (4) the liability will be prohibitive.

    I think all those assumptions are totally bogus, but what do y'all think?

    Try Ammoman.com.

    Good prices, never a shipping fee. May have to purchase a larger quantity than a box or two but you might be able to split an order as I often do if I don't need the quantities.

    Well, I was going to post my suggestion -- but it got edited! What's up with that?
