    going to use the great shooting range Vegas has and in need of ammo.
    The shooting range up north is a hidden treasure.

    Where is the cheapest place for ammo?

    entirely depends on what caliber you're looking for.

    I'm not a local but I'd guess Wal Mart although availability can be sketchy. If you live there you can just order online, sgammo being my favorite for choice and price and cheap shipping.

    I'm also interested in more responses, I don't shoot in Vegas because I can do so locally for much cheaper, but perhaps would if there's a frugal way to do it.

    I'd shop at Wal Mart or Bass Pro Shops. Sometimes my semi-local Wal Mart has the cheap Russian ammo in stock.

    id like to know also.

    boxed full metal jacket range ammo from large sporting good store or Walmart vs a smaller outfit that has "reloads" in bags/buckets

    I guess caliber choice would be equally as cheap all across the board

    The shooting range is only $5 for all day use. First time you must watch a video that explains their rules and way they run the target shoot.
    The place is huge and I would guess has over 50 stations for rifles and handguns practice. Some amazing guns just watching shooters.
    You can bring your own ammo and targets. I think they will rent guns also.

    Don't know if where all they ship but my husband uses Ammunition to Go- They have a lot in stock usually at a decent price compared to others, and he gets in one or two days. We are in Texas and so are they - which may be why he gets it so quick.

    Doing some shooting at one of the ranges in Vegas is definitely on my bucket list as well...

    We buy from Walmart and Bass Pro Shops. Though, stock on 9mm is usually low at Walmart, and it goes fast. But shot gun shells and 30-06 isn't a problem.

    Only been to the shooting complex for the shot gun range. Beautiful and a good time. You load money on the card, clays are deducted as you use them throughout the course.

    went to my local Walmart today. Prices are fair for lower end 9mm rounds. About the same as online if you include shipping. I think the quality of the ammo brands are better online for the price though.
    Moot point, if your going to vegas to shoot and renting guns, just get whatever at Walmart and call it a day. No need to drive around and spend time saving 2-3 cents a round.

    Ventura Munitions on Valley View & Russell has a wide selection and good prices. They sell bulk re manufactured range ammo too. You can order online and pick up or just visit the store.

    Also, you may want to call the shooting complex. They rent guns in many calibers, and I think they sell ammo for them all as well. They may have some competitive prices on range ammo.

    They were not at all competitive when we took the shot gun to the range. Definitely a mark up for the convenience factor. I can't say for certain, but I would assume that to be the case across the board.

    My son would recommend cheaperthandirt. He would also like to know where to get cheap 22lr.

    www.laxammo.com

    is where I get reloaded/new they have 22lr but I'm not sure if shipping and tax will make it worth while.
    ( I assume your son lives in Bakersfield also)

    It's almost impossible to find cheap .22lr. It's almost as expensive to buy a box of 50 .22lr as it is to buy cheap 9mm. That's insane. Two years ago it was even worse... What I paid for a brick of 500 when I bought my Henry was highway robbery.

    .22LR is still hard to find? I'm well stocked with that and haven't shot in a while. Well, well stocked is all relative.
