They are making $95 profit on all the ammo you buy in a year, plus they eat the shipping. If they have enough members ordering large quantities, they won't make much at all. Assuming you're really paying their cost.

If they have the ammo you'd want in stock, all the time, no backorders, that's a deal. How is their reputation up to now?

There must be a glut on ammo in general, for them to do this.

My personal supply will probably out last me.......

I can reload quite a few rounds for $95 a year.

I'd think you'd have to buy well over $1000 in a year to make it worthwhile. Looking at the reviews it appears it's generally an 8% discount. The free shipping sounds good on paper, but there are a lot of free shipping offers these days. I really dislike those memberships, because you kick yourself whenever you see a great deal somewhere else. I have kind of a similar situation with the $700+ I still have in Cabela's gift cards I bought at 80 cents on the dollar. I don't feel like I want to buy anywhere else, since I've invested all that money. It's an okay deal, I don't think it's anything great, based on 8% off the prices I looked at.

Eight percent definitely doesn't sound like wholesale, which on most things is around twenty or better. You could probably match their price other places without joining anything.

Yeah, but--free shipping at Cabela's all the time on $50+, and that's not much ammo. They've had Herter's 45 ACP for $11.88 for at least a month. Best for brass .45 at Target Sports is $13.79 for Geco, before whatever discount they have. With my discounted Cabela's gift cards I get an effective cost of $9.50. And no $95 fee. Cabela's has gone way downhill since Bass Pro took over, but I think I can still beat Target Sports on a lot of stuff.
