    Where do you guys buy your ammunition in the PDX area?
    Has anyone seen any deals lately? I heard that Curts's is the place to go for AR/accessories as well as Ammo. I believe they Make their ammo in house, Yeah?

    I generally order online, but when I buy local I usually go to WalMart. Next would be BiMart.
    Occasionally Fishermans or NWA will have a good sale and I'll buy from them too.

    I live close to a Fishermans, so that is my weekly stop. I will buy whatever is on sale or a box of SD ammo. Walmart is always out of stock and the store is a zoo anyway. I bought ammo from Dick's a year or two ago and they made me sign an electronic wavier or something (cant remember) so I haven't been back.

    I just went to Curts out on McLoughlin, and they do alot of their ammo in house. Right now they have 500 rounds of 55gr brass w/ Hornady bullets for $160. Thats about .33 per round. Not bad.
    What kind of deals do Wal/Bi-Mart have?

    Fishermans has some good sales and so does Bi-mart. My few trips to Northwest Armory has shown some decent prices as well.

    I just wait for a member here to sell off one of their guns and buy their unwanted ammo for a great price.

    I drive by NWA on a regular basis and they seem to have the best deal on .40S&W FMJ. $14 for box of 50, which rivals internet pricing & shipping.

    BiMart for me for when in stock or on sale. Mostly I buy online. Usually lower price for 9mm and 45 ACP and the convenience of having it sent to my front door are hard to beat.

    I've also had success watching Cabelas for sales and having them ship free to their local store. Set up an alert on wikiarms for whatever you are looking for and have it sent via text to make sure you can take advantage of a killer deal when it comes up.

    I usually order online to get the best deals. If I need a box immediately I can usually find what I need at Cabelas; I've never been able to find 9x18 at Bi-Mart or Wal-Mart.

    I am not in need of ammo at the moment. That is because whenever BiMart has a good sale I pick up a few boxes. The sale price is hard to beat even when buying in bulk. Shoot one box, buy two to replace it. It adds up over time. That said, the NW Armory sale at $10 for the 9mm is a good price locally without shipping. The wife does not question small charges on the debit card, but she does look at larger charges. So a few boxes here and there add up over time to build up the stash and keeps me out of trouble. :cool:

    Also my usual MO but blazer brass is my fav and at that price, I stocked up for the summer. Bimart hasn't had that price since the Sportsman's show.

    What brand of ammo? I'd buy a couple of cases of S & B at $10 a box.
