As of January 1st — a mere 10 days away — it will be illegal to import ammunition into the state of California without going through a CA-based, licensed ammunition vendor. This includes internet and other mail orders. Some vendors are considering Friday, December 29th as the cut-off date so orders can ship prior to the law taking effect. Some vendors are considering NOW the cut-off date so orders can arrive prior to the law taking effect.
Either way, the time has come (or, possibly, just passed) to place those last internet ammunition orders to stock up at the best possible prices. Here are a few good options to find the best product at the best price:
Brownells: use coupon code M6S for free shipping on orders over $49, coupon code LDD for $10 off plus free shipping on orders over $99, coupon code H7L for $20 off plus free shipping on orders of $200 or more, or coupon code L9Q for $30 off plus free shipping on orders of $300 or more.

Sportman’s Guide: SG won’t ship to a couple specific counties in California (some of the other companies listed here may not as well), but if you aren’t located in one of those areas you’ll find their prices are often the lowest anywhere. Use coupon code SH1759 for free shipping or coupon code TAKEOFF15 for 15% off your first order up to a $30 maximum discount. Click here for Sportsman’s Guide.
