    Well, I finally decided to order from Freedom Munitions. Pretty good price on 9mm. But, I learned something new today. They are shipping it from Idaho. All this time I thought it would be coming from Houston. Tracking shows it went from ID to WA, then OR. Scheduled for delivery on Thursday.

    I guess they don't ship out of Houston, which is only about 170 miles from here. Anyone know if they actually manufacture ammo in Houston, or is that just an outlet store?

    Why do they charge state tax for a product made in, and shipped from Idaho? Probably due to the physical location in Texas.

    Anyway, the main thing is, I was surprised that it comes from Idaho.

    They have a presence in Texas so sales tax is collected. Cabelas is the same. Not sure of the manufacturing site.

    I won't be buying ammo from WMT and Academy from now on (9 & 380) - WMT raised their price on 100 count WWB 9mm from $22.97 to $26.37 !

    it's a pleasant drive to Freedom from my place

    Their manufacturing plant is in Idaho. One of the owners lives here in Houston and that's why they have a store here.

    Since this was my first order from FM, I only ordered 250 rds of new 9mm. The shipping was $12.76.

    That's still fairly cheap for 9mm these days. It might be a bit more expensive at FM, but I haven't seen any 100 round WWB at Walmart in a long, long, time. I don't know if there is any truth to it, but I have heard that Freedom Munitions charges more at their B&M than they do on line. Let us know what your experience is.

    They charge slightly more at the storefront. Costs money to have people staffing it and to pay the rent.

    I just ordered 1000 9mm FMJ and with s/h and tax comes out to $13.64 box.

    That's reasonable, imho...
