We’ve turned one year old, learned to walk, and now we’re beginning to sprint! 

With all the excitement around the upcoming election, Kim Kardashian getting robbed, and creepy clowns roaming the streets, we plum forgot to celebrate our birthday! We turned one last month and wanted to do something special besides having cake and ice cream (though we may have had some of that already)…

Since we are an ammunition subscription company we thought: what better way to celebrate than by adding the granddaddy of all rounds to our lineup? Introducing a subscription for the 50 BMG!

Service Grade: $3.928/rnd. A full box is 10 rounds ($39.28/box)
Match Grade: $5.566/rnd. A full box is 10 rounds ($55.66/box)

We’re going to start carrying both Service and Match Grades of this massive and historical round. And that’s not all…

We’ve also added a round that has been in high demand but we’ve never been able to find at a reasonable price. Unitl now…

22 Magnum!!

Service Grade: $0.272/rnd. A full box is 50 rounds ($13.58/box)

Hopefully, we will be able to add a good variety of brands for you .22 Mag fans out there.

Speaking of variety… if you got a delivery last month, did you notice how your box had more brand options? Since we moved away from allocating specific brands to our customer’s accounts a few months ago, we have a little more flexibility to “mix’n match” brands.

That’s a good thing, here’s why…

Instead of allocating the exact same brand each month, we’re pairing a lower-priced brand with a higher-priced brand so the average price comes out about the same or even lower than what we have been providing. (This month we had more price drops than price increases using this strategy). This also gives you more variety in your box. Especially if you’ve been with us for more than a few months, you were starting to see the same brands over and over again because those were the brands we could get at a decent price.

It is a delicate balance. We don’t just send the cheapest ammo we can find, we look for the best mix of value to quality. In future months, if supplies tighten we’ll continue to adjust our strategy so you are getting the best balance of quality brands at the lowest price.

If you haven’t yet looked at our updated price list. Be sure to check it out:
