Even if SG's prices are a few bucks more than competitors I still buy from him, I like to support smaller businesses and he's done more than most in stocking some of the harder to find ammo

Just bought 5k rounds of 7.62x39, prices are good, and i dont want the agonizing FOMO if something were to happen with import restrictions

UPS guy is gonna hate me

I just received another case of 125 grain fmj Wolf green and yellow box 7.62x39 lacquered and sealed copper jacket from SGA earlier today and I'll be ordering some more from them next week.

Sgammo has the best variety of ammo, hands down. Site is fast and easy to navigate, I buy most of my ammo there. Just bought another 5k of 9mm, 5.56 and 7.62x39 from them.

Is it coincidence that a lot of product that was in stock and plentiful a few days ago is now out of stock or just me.

No coincidence. This thread likely inspired half the files to order ammo. Sam must love these panic threads.

There will probably be more as the mid terms approach. Someone will post the sky is falling again on ammo.

His website kinda sucks for being 2018 imho. Yeah it is fast. Yeah he has pictures of the products which is nice. Yes he has good variety of products. Yes his pricing is ok, but you can usually find cheaper if you look online.

The problem with his website is that it is terrible to navigate and search for particular ammo. For popular ammo that he carries a lot of like 9mm, .45 ACP, x39, 5.56...etc. you have to scroll and scroll and scroll.

No option to sort by bullet weight. No option to sort by FMJ vs. hunting vs. self defense. No option to sort by manufacturer. All you get to do is sort by normal products or new products or price per round (can go low to high or high to low). That is it. Terrible website design in that regard.

I wont say you're wrong, but look what happened to Kvar's website after they tried to"update". Sometimes you don't need to screw with a website.

LOL, no doubt, oldest sales trick in the book and guys are on here bragging about how they went for it hook line and sinker!

Sam's a genius, he's been doing that shit to a greater or lesser degree for months now at the top of every e-mail. He knows his customer's "triggers" now, especially after this episode.

No biggie, it's a good deal actually, the more people that stack it deep now, the less goddam whiners we'll have to listen to the next time there's an ammo shortage (if there ever is another one, not very likely at all now).

Except you have to put some effort to find the cheapest after shipping. Ammoseek isn't all that helpful in that regard.

Was looking at sgammo the other day, and noticed 9mm hst and gold dot go up from about 20 for 50rnds to 30. That was a odd increase. I normally tack a few of those onto any order but..

I don't really think that stocking up on good ammo at fair current market prices really falls under "falling for something"

OK, looks like it may be coming, the chance of a potential ammo ban is greatly increasing.

I noticed some of their out of stock ammo that is still up is cheaper then the same ammo back up for sale.

I ordered some ammo that finally got back in stock, I could've swore it was $10 cheaper before. But, the price was still a little cheaper than other places. And they didn't kill me to much on shipping.

So in a true panicky fashion I decided to pick up another case of GT/Amursk Red Army.
Ammoseek (Ammomenllc) has is at $192.50, after shipping of $35, 82, it comes out to $228.32.
SGAmmo GT with shipping is $221.90 or 22.2¢ a round. Where are you finding sealed, lacquered ammo for cheaper???? I would love to put away a case or two of 17¢ ammo.

Thank you. I use Ammoseek and Gun.deals. I still cannot find anything less than $200 for sealed lacquered ammo.

If you just want a few boxes or even a half case, then Academy is running their Monarch Barnaul made lacquered 7.62X39 for $4.99 a box with free shipping over $25. Less expensive than SG with the free shipping, but it isn't sealed. Still good quality ammo.

Do you guys think Sam is colluding with Russia to create a scare and drive up prices? Think about it.

That's $249.50 a case for non-sealed ammo. Explain to us again with your (common core) math how $249 is less than $221...

WTF, are you blind or just trying to be a jackass to that dude? Either way your post is dumb as fucking shit because the very post you quoted in your post says "If you just want a few boxes or even a half case..."

This quote, times one million. Reading comprehension is key.

120 rounds (6 boxes) of Monarch FMJ (Brown Bear) is right around $30 shipped from Academy (up to maybe $32 depending on sales tax).

100 rounds (5 boxes) of Golden Tiger from SG is around $37 shipped.

Explain to us again (with your potato math) how $37 is less than $30...

And I even said it wasn't sealed too. Oh well, reading is fundamental.

AIM Surplus is running Red Army Standard Vympel for $3.99. It isn't as good a deal for me because of shipping ($16.71 for in state shipping on 500 rounds ouch) and tax.

It was reported in early August that imports of Russian made good may be included in a November set, but here's the latest sanctions (that had been anticipated): https://s3.amazonaws.com/public-insp...2018-18503.pdf

It does not have restrictions on imports of ammo from Russia (yet?).

However, the article says:
"Additional significant sanctions are possible unless, within 3 months after making the determination under the CBW Act (likely on or around November 22, 2018), the President certifies to Congress that Russia (i) is no longer using chemical or biological weapons in violation of international law or using lethal chemical or biological weapons against its own nationals, (ii) has provided reliable assurances that it will not in the future engage in any such activities, and (iii) is willing to allow on-site inspections by UN or other observers. The additional sanctions required by the CBW Act in this instance are three or more of the following:

...

Import ban: a ban on importation into the United States of articles grown, produced, or manufactured in Russia.
..."
