Buying bulk is the best way to meet your needs for ammo. It provides savings for your budget, plenty of rounds for keeping skills sharp on the range, and can be stored indefinitely.
Consider these cost savings: In ballpark terms, the cost of 1,000 rounds of 9mm ammo will be about 10% less per round than it would be if purchased in 50-round boxes. Some new shooters, however, and even some shooters with more experience, will doubt their ability to shoot that much ammo. If these shooters bought cheap ammo in bulk, they might go to the range more often and shoot more ammo each time – boosting skill (and having more fun!) without breaking the bank.
Buying bulk ammo makes sense, considering the popularity of firearms for concealed carry and home defense. The self-defense shooter can choose a specialty round for daily carry, and find practice ammo in bulk that performs similar to the specialty personal protection ammo. Once a shooter has a similar load, they can spend more time practicing for different scenarios – all while saving money.
Bulk ammo, when stored properly, can last indefinitely – a real advantage for large ammo purchases. The U.S. military used stockpiled ammunition from WWII during the Gulf War, which is a time span of 50 years. Civilian shooters can be found shooting even older ammunition with no issues. It is important to protect ammo from moisture, shock, and large temperature swings. For shooters who don't plan to spend lots of time at the range with their old rifle, having a ready supply of ammo will still allow them to head out to the range any time they desire.
9mm and .40 S&W, as well as 7.62x39mm and 5.56 NATO, are the most popular cartridges purchased in bulk – although there are many other cartridges that can be purchased in bulk quantities.
