Just curious where are people's go-to places for buying ammo. I bought my last 2 boxes at Dick's (since it was near Mitchel Field), and they had 150x Federal 5.56 for $99 ($0.66 each) or 200x Fiocchi .223 for $99 ($0.50 each).  I was at DSI today and they had 90x Federal  5.56 for $40 ($0.44 each).  I figured a big box store like Dick's would have better pricing on something like ammo they can buy in bulk, but I guess not.  Any "go-to" places on LI for ammo?  

 

(sorry if this isn't the right place to ask)

Never buy anything from Dick's again.

I say that as a person who bought all his ammo from Dick's until two weeks ago. They are working against your right to shoot your rifle.

Buy from a local gun store to support them even though it will be more expensive, or buy online in bulk, possibly from TargetsportsUSA.com

Thanks. Don't plan to buy from Dick's again, but still would like to know where to get the best prices (local) for ammo (5.56/.223).  

 

Can ammo be shipped to your house?  This looks great: https://www.targetsp...50-p-58545.aspx

If you're only buying 3-4 boxes once in a while, then go to any LGS.

 

If you shoot a lot (500+) each month, then online bulk is the only way.

Nice. For some reason I thought ammo could only be shipped to an FFL just like a firearm.

Depends on where you live and who you purchase from. Many online retailers will not shipped to NY. Target sports will ship to Nassau and Suffolk. I think Buds will ship to Suffolk only.
