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.

A case of 9 arrived yesterday and I was there to sign for it.

After noting the weight of the package, as I hoisted it onto my shoulder, the driver says "Ammo?"

 

Fast holiday season shipping from Target Sports.

A note to add about Buds:

 

Yes, they ship to your door, even if you live in Chicago. However, don't expect them to get the order right, or for it to show up on time. I've had two orders with them that were messed up where I didn't get a tracking number. Currently I'm waiting on a portion of an order that was listed on a specific tracking number that never showed up. They also had a huge delay because they forgot to forward my FOID to their distributor, and never reached out to me until I raised an issue with them due to the massive delay. They also don't pack well; I had 2000 rounds of Magtech sitting in the rain without anything to protect them from the elements, no plastic wrap on the box to keep them dry. 

 

When you chat them online (because the phone is always busy), they cannot help you without getting a supervisor. Because you'll have to work to get your ammo (or a refund in my case, since I'm done with Buds for good), I would recommend ordering from other vendors.

Do any of these websites have free shipping for ammo? Also, does anyone know which of these sites sell Glock 19 Gen 5 Mags? Or atleast a website that will ship 15 Rd Gen 5 G19 mags to Chicago? Thanks.

What did they tell you exactly? A few people here have ordered from them previously with no problem and their website says they just need scans of your Driver's License and FOID

Targetsportsusa.com usually has free shipping if  you order 1000 rounds of - say 9mm or other pistol rounds.  Not sure what they do  with rifle or shotgun rounds.  The only quirk is that if  you order, say 1000 rounds of target ammo and 100 rounds of hollow point, they will still charge you for shipping the hollow points.  But if you watch for their 1/2 price hollow point sales, it is still a pretty good deal.

Ah, I think I made a mistake, as when I was going through the checkout process a pop-up stating "Unable to Ship to Your Address" came up. After reading through the terms more closely, Used where they say that you just have to upload the proper credentials. I'm emailing them to double check on 15 round Mags, just to be sure on that specifically.

Thanks for letting us know about LG, I've added them. Unfortunately, Ventura used to be on the list here and they were removed because people keep getting different responses from them. Initially, they were shipping ammo to Chicago without issue, then a while back someone tried to order from them and they were denied/order canceled because "selling ammo to Chicago isn't allowed". I'm hesitant to add them back to the list because vendors like this are, frankly, more trouble then they're worth. At least the ones who simply say no are consistent.
