Ammo & Reloading Component Sources
« on: February 04, 2009, 07:19:07 PM »
This thread includes sources that members here have tried and suggested for local and national sources for both ammunition and ammunition reloading components.  It is not a complete list by any means, it is simply a list that other CZ owners have tried and liked due to service, availability, price, or whatever.

The moderators will edit the list so that it doesn't degrade into a hodge-podge of scattered posts and mixed information.  If you want to add a suggestion, then please do.  From time-to-time we will come back, add your suggestion to the list, and then remove your post.  The idea is to conserve all suggestions in a neat and orderly format, not to steal anyone's credit.  Our only goal is that organized information is worth far, far more to you, the users.  So use this thread knowing that it is built upon hundreds of suggestions from CZ owners just like yourself.

All lists here are shown alphabetically, not by hierarchy or usefulness.

Before you take the time to call up 50 individual sites, you should know that there are automated and volunteer sites that have done most of the work for you.  By using these sites early in your search, you can save yourself a lot of time.  Most ask for the caliber and then guide you directly to a free list of providers that have the best "bottom line" deals.  These sites cannot search every web site, but they certainly do a great job of searching the top 100. 

As such, they rank as the best place to begin your search:

1. AmmoSeek
2. Gun-Bot
3. Gun-Deals

A great way to save money on ammunition is by buying bulk ammunition from a certified re-manufacturer.   If you need lots of ammo in a single caliber, then these "re-manufacturers" certainly represent the best way to go for many shooters.  They will most always be the lower cost alternative to factory new ammunition because they 1) re-cycle the brass cartridge case, and 2) sell in higher volumes.  If you do not reload ammunition yourself, then a certified reloader may be the best bet for you.  Some will allow further discounts if you return the brass with your next order.

Here they are:

Automatic Accuracy  AR
Atlanta Arms  GA
CCC Ammo  TX
Freedom Munitions  TX  ($7.50 flat rate shipping)
Georgia-Arms  GA  (See "Canned Heat")
Great Lakes Ammo  MI
Precision Delta  MS  (Use the pull-down menu to find "Remanufactured")
Stand 1 Armory  TX

Obviously, since we are basically talking about shipping a very heavy product, vendors closer to your location may have significantly lower shipping costs.
