17HMR Ammo.



Log in to see fewer ads
Well I bought a Savage 93R17 GV on Monday night, and a 4x12x40 scope on Thursday night, and today I bought some ammo. Hornady 17gr. V Max, which I paid $9 for. How much do you guys usually pay for ammo.?

I hit all the gun and sporting goods stores in my area and found a shop selling HMR ammo for $8.+ tax.

I buy the Cabelas bulk Deal. 500rds 79.95 and they throw in the big green ammo box. I have a few of these, they are great for storage.

Thanks for the replies. I thought Walmart or Dicks Sporting Goods would be cheaper, but they are right around $10. 93R17-bvss, thanks for the welcome, I am new here and I hope to learn a lot here. The more I read about the 17HMR, the more I get excited about owning one Now I have the rifle, scope and ammo. all I need to do is get a cleaning rod to clean out the new barrel, and I'm ready for the range. BTW I'm sorry about posting this in the wrong place to begin with.

The only problem with MidSouth is if you are a Tennessee resident, they add tax and a fee for the TWRA and it runs the price way up.
I don`t know why they have added the TWRA fee. The TWRA is already bleeding hunters and fishermen in Tennessee.
So I choose not to buy from them.

Your shipping costs to California must be killing you. Shipped to my door a case came to $7.39/box . My shipping costs are less than the sales tax I'd have to pay. A local place would have to sell for $6.90/box for me to break even but then the way gas prices are I'd spend $5 to get there and back.

Shipping came to a total of $8.19 for the 500 rounds from Tn to Ca. Considering the weight I can't argue about that. And, it is still cheaper than I can find the ammo for here in the RepubliK of Kalifornia.

There are only a couple of gun shops in the South Bay area - good old democrats in Sacramento are running them all out of business!
