Just a heads up, but free shipping ( and possibly no tax) makes for some pretty good ammo deals.

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

No, they ship free directly to your door. Put 3gifts into the coupon code, and it ships directly to you free.

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).
I bought a case of .308. No shipping charges and no tax. Obviously, not everything is worth getting, but a lot of it is.

I've said for years that if you see a deal on ammo, get it, whether you need tt or not, because two things are certain- the price won't go down, and there will be another crisis when ammo becomes hard to get. If you can get good deals locally, all the better.

Totally agree. No excuse for getting caught without, should this happen again.

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!

.308 is hard to get around here, for some reason. When you do see it, it's usually Remington, and not much else.

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!

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.

I gave up on buying ammo at gun shows, most of those guys get their ammo from the same place the Lone Ranger did. They're all think they're selling silver bullets.

Being an old fart these shows gets me out of the house, and gives me some exercise.
Most of the bigger shows here in Vegas are held at Cashman Center, about five miles from me. So the driving time and gas consumption is nil.
The cost to get in is less than going to a movie. The last time I went to a theater, I had free tickets. It still cost me $36.00. So I don't go to them.
The ammo vendors at these shows have a good supply of most everything. Prices are lower than going to Bass pro. When I can't get it at my local dealers this is my go to, and I walk away happy, and with a good supply.
After the shows I stop by a local casino, and have a good Chicago corned beef sandwich. Then back home and into my recliner.........
