I'm an old fart that has been hunting/buying ammo in large quantities for over ten years. I've had numerous threads at other forums mainly at Calguns so I decided to help the CZ folks find some ammo deals. Note, deals today, for 9mm for example, disregarding steel, are 32-35 cpr (that's cents per round) delivered. Delivered means tax and shipping are included in the prices I mention. To give you an idea of the volume, I shoot 120 rounds of 9mm a week, 800-1000 rounds of 22lr a week (Calamity does half of that) and about 100 rounds of 223/556. I usually average 40-45 range trips a year.
Tomorrow for example, I'll be shooting Norma 124 gr, Fiocchi 124 gr, Win 115 gr, S&B 124 gr, Blazer 124 gr and PMC 124 gr 9 mm thru my CZ Shadow 2 SAO that I've had for about two years. Pics are in Pistol Forum.
For my DD's tomorrow, I'll be shooting Norma Tac 223, PMC Bronze, IMI, Hornady Black, and a few Rems and Feds.
Tomorrow for 22lr, it will be Ruger day instead of shooting my CZ 452, 453, 452 Lux. All my Rugers were rebarreled with GM bbls, they all have Kidd single stage triggers with springs, etc. All have scopes of 20-24 power of Vortex Vipers, or equivalent, as do all my CZ's, and we'll be shooting either at 50 yards, which is normally done, or sometimes at 75 yards. 75 yards will open the targets a bit, showing the ammo faults or the rifle faults. Calamity shoots hv, mainly CZ, but also Blazer and a few Aguila. All shoot fine with no problems whatsoever, even the Rem GB's. However all will display various fliers of different degrees. I only shoot sv's and mostly the "greasy kids stuff" from Europe, although I also shoot CCI sv's as I have a bleep load of them. I stay away from the $$$ Lapua the Tenex although I have a few of each for testing purposes. Our 72 Ruger mags are locked and loaded. We don't waste time loading at the range, although I do when I shoot my CZ's. Calamity sticks with her Rugers.
Ok. Here's an example of what I posted the past couple of days. Any Q's, just ask.
Looks like ammoshop is starting to get restocked. Again, not a "deal" deal, but they have Norma 115 gr 9mm "on sale" for $16.19 per 50 rounds. Free ship over $200. I shoot this one or their 124 gr round nearly every week. Quality, accurate rounds. Buying enough for free ship, 13 boxes, they come to me for $228.10 for 650 rounds, or 35 cpr delivered. A lot more than they use to 3-4 years ago, but a decent delivery in today's time, and with inflation the way it is, .......
Ammoshoponline has a deal going on, (well, it's almost a deal
), buy 5 Norma Tac 55gr 223 and get 1 free. This is at $17.99 per 30 rounds. Free shipping starts at $200. So, buy 15 at $17.99 and get three free. Tax for me is $22.60. Hence 540 rounds come to me for $292.45 or 54.1 cpr. Again not great, but it's only gonna get more expensive, at least for a while.
Another place I've never heard of, abguns.com, or Ace Buyers Guns, in Michigan. Right now they have Norma Tac 22lr for $4.49 / $43.99 / $429.99. Prices are 50/500/5K. It does not appear that they charge tax and shipping is reasonable, with 2 bricks coming in at $51.50 per, 4 bricks coming in at $47.75, and 10 bricks delivered at $455. Never heard of them as I mentioned.

For those of you who like and shoot 22lr Blazer, CCIammo has the 525 box and the 425 milk carton up for sale for $47.99 and $39.99 resp. Does not appear to be a limit on these and free ship for $99+. Note: these are OOS now I believe. They always have CCI sv's and mm's of both flavors. Free ship over $99, but not cheap any longer. Some have max's too.

Below is an example of what I've bought from these folks less than two years ago. I believe they were just getting started here in the US. The stuff shoots great in all my rifles. I bought a few K's to try them out before buying quite a few cases of each. Lucky for me they were fast shippers and not that well know. It was a well kept secret, but even when we posted it in several forums, it lasted a while. You can see exactly how many boxes they have left by clicking on Product Details button. For example, they now have 4432 boxes of Eley Club for sale at the good, but not fabulous price of $7.99. Shipping is reasonable. I used this for an example to show a better place to buy.
ELEY 42g Action 500 bulk pack .22lr $32.50 each
ELEY 42g Action 50 round box .22lr $3.25 each
500- ELEY action .22lr brick of 500 rimfire cartridges $27.50 each

Here's my favorite place to buy, run by a sweaty pie named Kathy. Usually the best prices anywhere for what they sell. Shipping is very reasonable. The main problem is they sell out fast. Give Kathy a call. In the example above of KSS, the Eley Club was $7.99. Kathy's price is $6.85. Anything they sell is usually at rock bottom prices.
Enough for now, I have to load the car for shooting tomorrow. Any Q's, just ask. Here's where I buy my Shoot N C targets and for how much. Mostly they come from Amazon.
3" Shoot n c targets, 1000 sheets for $53.67. That's 4000 targets. 1.3 cents per target. Learn about camelcamel and set up for notification when a price drops to what you are will to pay. Check out the price history. I also use/like the one below.
