Bulk 22lr Ammo Price in NY


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Hey guys,

I'm planning on picking up a marlin 795 or other 22 in the next couple of weeks, and I would like to pick up about 6 of those 500 round cases of bulk ammo (i also plan on buying about 500 20 gauge shot shells). I plan on stocking up on whats cheapest to shoot. Does anyone know what the expected price per case would be?

I saw some on gunbroker for about 25 a piece plus shipping.

good luck finding it.

Out here in NH I was paying $12.50 at walmart for Federal 550 bulk packs. And at my local gun shop, 500rnd bricks of Winchester SuperX HV for $24.

I haven't seen .22lr available in anything other than 50 or 100 round boxes in a long time.

The Federal High Velocity Bulk pack is a lot better than I ever expected it to be. VERY cheap, few duds, acceptable consistency and it agrees with 95% of my .22lr guns. Some are just terribly picky, but I'm glad mine don;t mind the cheap stuff!

I normally buy my .22s by the case. As you are planning to buy in bulk, you might consider that as an option. I use Midway or Champions Choice.
Midway has Federal American Eagle HV at the case price of $199.00 (5000 rounds). You'd have to check S/H; should be about $25.

You might want to add Grafs and Sons to that also. Their shipping is $4.50 per order. Catch you later. I've not heard of Champions choice so I'm going to check it out myself.

S/h

Grafs is a good store. That $4.50 charge, however, is for handling and insurance only. The shipping charge is in addition to that, whether it be UPS or Fedex.
I was unable to find case prices at Grafs, though their per box price was pretty low (and out of stock).

The $4.50 is for insurance and handleing. Grafs says it pays the frieght. As far as the case prices what they do is give you the pre box price. when you look at the caliber that you want they give you the count of the rounds in a box the the number of boxes that are in a case. It will look like this: 20/bx 10/cs at the end of the name of the cartridge.

Say if you want a case of federal 45-70 goverment you would have to buy 10 boxes. I think they still give a 5% discount when you buy in quantity but i'm not sure.

Grafs

Buff: Yeah....I missed that note by the shipping...that Grafs pays the freight.
One thing that I don't understand is that Grafs charges (at least it seems so) a $32.50 Hazmat charge for ammo orders. Midway, for some reason, does not.
For the ammo that I was looking at - Fed. Amer. Eagle SV - it ends up about even since Midway's price for 5K rounds is $10 more than Grafs and there's a $23.11 shipping charge. Grafs comes out ahead by $0.61.
Neither has the ammo in stock.

What that $32.50 hazmat charge is for are for orders (primers,ammo,fuse) that are shipped by airfrieght.

I do agree that the price difference is really insignificant even with paying the shipping charges at midway. I like both, but Midway has a larger selection of ammo and other things. They also let customers know approximately when they will have out of stock items will be in stock. I have ordered stuff rom Midway and they have sent it out in a timely fashion. I've never had a problem with midway.

Only for airfreight? Then Grafs - if they had the ammo - would be the place. About Midway - they get the vast majority of my business. Very efficient and the prices are fair.

Take a look at Midway too. They have more selection in some calibers than grafs does. and if Midway is out of stock of something, they give you a date when they expect to have it in stock.
