    Hi, i'm quite new to the scene and I was wondering which place has the best bang for the buck in regards to ammo? I'm looking for mainly 45 auto or .380 auto bullets. A lot of people tell me Bi-Mart and a friend went to place in Oregon City last night and bought a pack of 50 - 45auto bullets for $16.95. ANy help is appreciated, thanks.

    That's a good price for 45acp. Bi-Mart sells the UMC for $19.99.

    I check Bi Mart a lot because I like thier Remington 45 jhp 230 gr for about 27 or 28 dollars for 50. I think they are as good as the ones for about a buck apiece in boxes of 20 or 25

    Wal Mart. Winchester white box 100 count for $34.95. Just plain jane ball but great for targets and plinking.

    I ended up settlingfor some remingtons at bimart for $19.99 for now. I'm still hunting. I can't believe Dick's raises their prices drastically. 3 weeks ago they hadthe remington 50 packs on sale for $17. 2 weeks ago, they had the same 45acp pack of 50 for $18.50. Then just this last weekend I went in and they say it is now sale for $21.95, regular price of $29.99. Screw Dicks.

    A bullet is the bit that flies downrange.
    A cartridge includes a bullet, case propellent and primer.

    Maybe you need to learn what you are shopping for.

    I was just at fishermans at delta park and they had pretty good prices on 45acp. I picked up the 150 rounds of cheap blazer for $16.99 per 50. Remington was $18.99 per 50.

    Went to Fisherman's Marine & outdoors in Oregon City and I had some fun. Both Fishermans are out of The Cheap Blazer bullets in 45acp, but I was able to pick up a pack of 380acp bullets for the Ruger LCP. When I went, They had some magtechs and some other brand for $19.99 a piece. I also got some hollow rounds. THey had Winchester 45acp hollow rounds for $23 and a Hornady hollow points for $18.99. Tough choice but I went with the Hornady's. Great customer service too.Thanks everyone.

    Walmart doesn't carry reloading supplies. Try Outdoor Outfitters.

    Powder Valley http://powdervalleyinc.com/ is a good place to buy Bullets...Powder...and Brass... Or Graf & Sons http://www.grafs.com/. Giving you the ability to carry what you target shoot with. I like 185gr JHP and to buy that ammo off the shelf run $1 per round or more most of the time.

    What was the bullet weight... 185gr...200gr...230gr ??? You should be able to load 185gr. for just under $30 per 100 if you shop around.
