    Where does everyone go for cheap ammo around El Paso? I can get some good ammo at Walmart and Big Five on occasion. With the Drug Wars over the border its hard to find good stuff. I try and pick up a couple a boxes every couple of weeks when I can find it.

    You should also be checking the Academy stores regularly.

    You haven't mentioned what type of ammo you're looking for. Pistol? Rifle? What caliber? Anyway if Walmart is out of ammo Academy is the next cheapest place I have found. If anyone on this list who lives in El Paso knows of places cheaper than Walmart or Academy feel free to speak up. The gun shops aren't so cheap. Good Luck!!

    Yeah,what cal? Some of us might be able to arrange for some horse trading. I've got plenty of .40 and .223 for the right trade. I could sell it but prefer trade.

    I think that your best bet would be to roll your own. It's not that expensive to start, and the unit would pay for it self in no time at all. If you shoot more than say- 13 boxes of ammo @ $23 a box. There's your initial equipment investment back. (obviously your starter kit)Powder, brass, boolits, primers, etc. would be at your cost. Re-loading has many benifits. (Cheap Ammo) as per your posting. You mentioned a couple of boxs every couple weeks. There ya go....Lot's of help here in the re-loading process.

    I am interested in reloading, just have to get the facts straight in my head. Work usually gets in the way of it.

    Start out by helping someone that already reloads. That is the BEST way to learn and get experience at the same time.
