I'm looking to buy bulk 9mm (ideally 147 grain, but I'd get 124 or 115 grain if priced right). I can walk into a big box store right now and buy 100 rounds of brass-cased 115gr for around .16 each (plus tax). Is there anyone out there who can beat that right now (free shipping, specials, etc)? Shipping would (obviously) be to a 606 zip.

 

Target Sports ships to Chicago

 

Here's the cheaper stuff...

 

If you join Prime Ammo you save a little bit more, they send you a gift near the end of your annual membership and shipping is always free no matter how small your order is. Good deal if you buy lots of ammo.

 

I like the Speer Lawman 124 and 147 which runs around .20 per.

 

 

Thanks a lot! That place looks like a winner.

I usually check out wikiarms and then check it against our vendor list to see who is GTG.

 

https://www.wikiarms.com/group/9mm

 

If you see a price you like and the vendor isn't on our list you can also check their website for shipping policy and if they don't say they won't ship to Chicago you can always give them a try and see what happens. Worst case scenario is they refund your money or deny the transaction. I've found a couple good vendors that way. If you do find someone good, please let us know so I can update the list.

 

 

Thanks! Good info for shopping around.

Was thinking of maybe trying Target Sports out for my next purchase (after browsing their site I almost wonder how much of a markup most brick-and-mortar stores are using). They asked for my FOID when I created my account (which I uploaded), do they only need the front side of the permit/do they need your DL as well or anything else? Also, do you need to be physically home when they deliver or can it be held somewhere if you're not home (like a secure access locker or FedEx/UPS store/pickup location)?

I believe they just need the FOID front and back. If they want anything else they will ask.

Technically FedEx and UPS stores aren't supposed to hold ammo or similar, but I've done it a few times and not heard any complaint from FedEx or UPS about it. If you're not home they may leave a notice asking you to go get it from the distribution center or request redelivery.

FedEx has left on my front stoop a few times. Only once was anything taken and it was 1000 rounds of Thunderbolt 22lr that was returned opened, but with nothing missing, the next day. I guess not even package thieves want that stuff. I found out why when I shot it.

Thanks, this was helpful. Do they usually contact you to schedule a delivery time then? Also, are there any restrictions wrt Chicago ordinances as to what types of ammo you can order (I've heard places such as MidwayUSA are finicky about this)?

You can sign up for an online account with both and get delivery updates.

The only ammo you can't have shipped to you from the best of my knowledge is 50 BMG and armor piercing. AP is banned outright.

Makes sense, thanks. From what I've read earlier on in this thread it seems standard defensive carry ammo is ok though? Also, any idea how they'd ask you for the signature if you live in an apartment (as opposed to a house where they can just walk up and ring your doorbell for delivery)?

There is a signature required or not option in the shipping section of the checkout.they leave it on my porch at home,I chose the no signature option,though my wife is home and looking for it.in a apartment I imagine they would ring your bell if you want to sign,if not probably leave it in your vestibule.I am a target prime ammo member and not only do you get a discount on all ammo you order,you also get unlimited free shipping.I like that,if I see a box that I want to buy,I feel comforted that the cost of shipping does not exceed the cost of ammo.I normally receive my order in 4-5 business days.

I just placed an order online for some Garand ammo from this PA outfit. I triple checked with them and they said OK with my Chicago address and e-mailing them a copy of my FOID.

 

I will report back when/if the ammo arrives so they can be added to the list one way or the other.

Ammo arrived safe and sound to my Chicago address. Please add Chestnut Ridge to the database of vendors that WILL ship to Chicago.

Thanks for the new add. I'll note they shipped rifle ammo. Most of the difficulty has been around handgun ammo, but no reason people can't try them anyway.
