    Looking for some bulk .40 FMJ for my XD. Been trying to find rounds for some time without any luck. Of course Sportman's warehouse makes me want to cry when I go down there ammo isle, no lucky at big 5 or walmart. Cheaperthandirt.com has been on back order for some time now. Looking for bulk about 200 rounds or so. Hopeing someone might know of a place I cant seem to find anything out there.

    Dunno if it's worth the drive, but Walmarts in Everett & Oak Harbor had maybe a half dozen boxes each of 40S&W, only like $13 a box.

    Kesselrings up by Burlington has plenty. I bought a few boxes of S&B 180gr. FMJ for my G23 for about $15 a box last week. They had plenty at the time. I imagine it's too far to drive, but perhaps they ship?

    Go to the gun show EARLY and hit the tables up. Surplus Ammo is usually well stocked on Saturday morning. There are a few other tables too. But usually by noon on Saturday they're getting dried up.

    I gave up on buying ammo for practice. Now I reload and save the factory ammo for carrying.
    I bought a Dillon square Deal B press (40s&w) for $350.
    A thousand cases (once fired) for $38.50 from http://store.brassmanbrass.com/servlet/StoreFront
    a thousand bullets from http://www.berrysmfg.com/ for $118 (180 grain 40 cal)
    and primers and powder from my local gun shop in Port Angeles. Primers $40 per M and powder $30 a lb.
    Taking my time I can turn out 200+ per hour.

    Perhaps if you would use a real computer you wouldn't have to apologize for not being able to do so many things on the internet!

    I'm going to be picking up some reloading gear next month to save on ammo, it seems the only way to go now.

    Take your .22s out for a spin. I've been shooting my H&R way more than anything else.

    Hell, when's the last time you fired your Marlin?

    Try Poulsbo walmart, I always get .40 blazer there...the have a 6 box/day limit though...go in the morning after they have unloaded the truck and stocked the shelves...That was the advice from an employee in sporting goods, and it has always worked for me.
