Just a heads up, but free shipping ( and possibly no tax) makes for some pretty good ammo deals.
No, they ship free directly to your door. Put 3gifts into the coupon code, and it ships directly to you free.Just checked Cabelas website. As far as free shipping goes on ammo, it looks like they will ship free to your nearest Cabelas store for pick up. Which doesn't really help me much since my closest store is 200 miles away. And you won't get "no tax" in a store. But the prices looked low, lower than anything in the last year at least. Maybe things are getting back to pre-hysteria levels
I bought a case of .308. No shipping charges and no tax. Obviously, not everything is worth getting, but a lot of it is.Cabela's Official Website - Quality Hunting, Fishing, Camping and Outdoor Gear at competitive prices
Says, in the fine print, additional shipping charges apply to heavy items. And the order must be $99 or more.
After looking at their prices, I think I'll continue to buy local. I just bought a 100 round box of federal ball 9mm for $37. Nothing they show comes close. I regularly buy 45 ammo for $22 a box of fifty, (Lawman ball).
.308 is hard to get around here, for some reason. When you do see it, it's usually Remington, and not much else.Living in Vegas we have gun shows! 9mm FMJ 124 gr. reloads are about $69.00 for 250 rounds. 500 is a little less. I go to the shows and buy. They also carry major brands new at a lot lower then Cabellas or bass pro. I was in the bass pro here in Vegas las Sunday the shelves were empty. No 9mm, .380 or .45!
I used to buy ammo at gun shows, but no more. Factoring in the gas to get there, and the $8 fee to get in, and the waste of time looking at junk, it's doesn't make anything a bargain.Most of the Cross Roads of the west shows have several vendors selling ammo!
Yes I have seen .308 and a lot of hard to find, in my post above I listed .380. There are several gun show promoters that have shows here in Vegas. We get shows about once a month here sometimes two back to back. They move them to all of the big citys across the U.S. Cross Roads comes here 7 to 8 times per year. There is a web site for most of them. Google Gun Shows should get the info. Since the ammo crunch I try to stay stocked up, and the best place as far as price goes are these shows.
Gun purchases I do through my local dealers, as well as ammo if they have it.
For all interested check for a show near you! You can buy in quanity with out limits. Gun prices at these shows are higher in my opinion!
