Welcome to the best place to buy ammo online. Whether you’re hunting, target shooting or looking for the best self-defense rounds – ammo shopping can be overwhelming. The good news? You’ve arrived at the best online ammo store that will help you find what you need and get it into your hands as quickly as possible.
If you don’t know where to start, here is a quick overview of the types of ammunition, the brands that carry them (both imported and American ammo), and their many varieties.
We go beyond offering you the best deals on ammunition – we want our customers to understand the anatomy of ammo. To do this, we must begin with casings. Available in aluminum, brass, nickel, steel and mixed varieties, casings are the ammunition “packaging” and can determine cost, weight, shelf life, and reloading capabilities.
Inside these casings are primers, which is what gets struck by the firing pin, creates a flash and ignites the powder. They are available in Boxer, Berdan and rimfire – each factors for performance, size and calibers.
Propelled by this ignition is the bullet, which is simply the projectile and can come in dozens of varieties – including hollow point, full metal jacket, lead round nose, soft point and more – that determine power, penetration, speed, expansion, safety and many other factors. Shotgun projectiles have similar qualities, but with pellets instead of a single bullet.
