Deal Alert: Cheapest 9mm in Decades?

Today only, over at Brownells, they have high-quality, brass-cased American Eagle 9mm ammo for 15 cents per round (or lower…see below) after a rebate from Federal. This has got to be the least expensive brass-cased 9×19 I’ve seen in a very long time! When was the last time you remember 9 mil this cheap?

While doing a little shopping myself, I noticed that Brownells is offering — again for today only — free shipping and a discount of $55 off orders of $500 or more (coupon code is M7S). So…with a purchase of ten boxes you’d hit the $50 maximum rebate amount from Federal. Sure, you’d then have to buy another $300 of stuff from Brownells (which is easier to do than my wife would like!) to get their $55 discount, but your effective price on the ammo, should you achieve that, would then be even lower than $0.15 a pop. Which is nuts.

    That’s cheap for brass boxer primed 9mm. Lowest price I have paid lately is 15.52 cents for steel case stuff.

    Buy now while prices are low!

    1. avatar Kenneth G Maiden says:

      I urge commie kalifornia LEGAL CITIZENS to buy millions and millions of rounds NOW! We are soon to be hit with what I call the kalli ammo ban. Restrictions that will drive the price through the roof, if you can even find what you NEED.

      Somebody point me to 15c 147gr then the suppressor folks will be happy.

    3. avatar Jeff in CO says:

      Cabela’s just had over the last few days, 350-round buckets of Remington UFP 115-grain for $74.99/each, plus Remington has a $30 mail-in rebate for $30 (limit 3 for a max of $90). I bought 3, and with the rebate, it took it down to 12.8¢/round!

  2. avatar MeRp says:

    “Today” in “Today Only” must have been yesterday because that is no longer the price at the listed link.

    1. avatar Mystickal says:

      It’s still the price today, at least as of right now – shows to be $20 for a 100 round box, with a 25% rebate, bringing your total cost to $15/100 rounds or 15 cents/round

    Totally OT, but I just got back from 13 weeks of misery on Parris Island. What has happened?

    1. avatar Ralph says:

      Well, you know. Same shit, different day.

      Welcome back!

    2. avatar Vhyrus says:

      There was a hurricane.

      I think that was it.

      1. avatar Primed&Ready says:

        Or two…

        1. avatar Swarf says:

          Maybe three…

      Hi(t)lary wrote a book which continues to blames everyone but herself for denying her a coronation last November. Never mind all that shady email sh!t, Wall Street paid-speech sh!t, ineptitude as SoS, insulting half of a voter base, laziness in taking votes in midwestern states for granted, and the general irritation of a public “speaking” style that’s better described as shrieking, it was those eeeevil penises that just couldn’t stand to have her withered ovaries back in the White House, because “womyn.” The media, as you may expect, obligingly parrotted this as The Golden Truth.

      So… no change there either.

      Welcome back!

      1. avatar Southern Cross says:

        Has she blamed the democrat party whose members decided to NOT vote for her?

        1. avatar Big Bill says:

          Yes, actually she did.

      Welcome back from your vacation at your uncle’s place!

      Bed and breakfast, and you got the mosquitoes for *free*!

    6. avatar Klaus Von Schmitto says:

      13 weeks? You kids nowadays.

      How do you feel?

      What’d you get?

      Welcome back!

      1. avatar Waffensammler98 says:

        Feeling stronger and faster than ever. Stopped counting sand flea and skeeter bites at about 10,000.

  4. avatar Steven says:

    Federal rebate doesn’t apply. The promotion ended last month.

    1. avatar Mystickal says:

      That was the old rebate. This is the new rebate (through Dec 31)

  5. avatar Soylent Green says:

    More brownells coupons, where you don’t have to spend $500

  6. avatar FlamencoD says:

    Not bad. Yesterday I bought new brass cased Armscor 9mm 115 gr FMJ ammo for 16.7 cents/round delivered and thought I was doing pretty well. I only bought 9 boxes (not sure now why I didn’t get a few more). No rebate required though.

  7. avatar The Rookie says:

    Dang, that’s not bad!

    Now, if only I could find Speer Gold Dots at that price (hey, a guy can dream, can’t he?) :0)

  8. avatar Clay-in-UT says:

    Freedom Munitions 9mm 124gr $0.1977 per round free shipping on orders over $99

    1. avatar Jeremy S. says:

      So 33% more? For reloads? This American Eagle deal is a hell of a deal!

      1. avatar Mark N. says:

        No, that’s new ammo, both 115 and 124. 115 and 124 gr RN reloads are .1873. They also sell a 124 gr FMJ “NATO” load, which is a bit heavier, at .2185.

  9. avatar Pickle Rick says: has it for .14 cents per round, and has had it that cheap for the past few months.

    Move along. Nothing to see here.

    1. avatar Stereodude says:

      As long as you ignore the fact that it’s not new ammo and the shipping isn’t free. Otherwise, it’s more money.

    2. avatar Jeremy S. says:

      This ain’t reloads, factory seconds, or steel-cased though. Factory new 9mm ammo from a major U.S. manufacturer for $0.15 per round or less is freakin cheap.

      We saw that Anderson lower receiver for $29.99 a few weeks ago, too. And the legit M855 that was 25 cents a pop, delivered, a couple weeks before that. Prices are really low right now!

  10. avatar Gman says:

    I get 9mm from Freedom or LAX at an average of $.185 per round and order 1000-1500 rounds whenever they have free shipping. Never had any issues with either of these companies ammo. The only ammo they offer that I don’t like is the .44 magnum. It’s more like special, and I do mean short powder special.

    1. avatar Grumpy says:

      Freedom also has a brass credit program. Basically ship them old brass for anything they reload via USPS any weight boxes and they will apply a credit to your card. It pisses of the people at the PO but you can cram apx 50-60lbs of brass in a box, just tape it well so it does not split open 🙂

    2. avatar Mark N. says:

      It is the same with their Leadville .45 Colt lead RNFPs. Hardly any powder in them at all. I haven’t graphed them, but I’ve seen 650 to 750 fps reported, which is pretty soft shooting stuff. But then again it is aimed at the cowboy action shooting folks.

  11. avatar Gman says:

    It’s funny, my S&W M&P 22 compact hates regular Federal ammo, but it eats the American Eagle. Just funny…

  12. avatar Mike says:

    If memory serves me correct, Remington had an even better deal back around Black Friday, where the net price on their UMC 9mm, joined with an on-line retailer sale, was 12 cents @ round, after rebate. Bring back that kind of pricing, then we can talk.

  13. avatar Fred says:

    I like the dopes on here talking about old expired deals. Can’t go back in time. Some folks could use a deal now. Add 10 boxes and a 50 cent spring. Then use code H7L for $20 off $200 + free shipping. After rebate it’s about 13 cents a round.

    1. avatar Jeremy S. says:


  14. avatar cogline says:

    Stock up now, you will be glad you did about 3 years from now.

    1. avatar Stereodude says:

      If buying 1k rounds of 9mm constitutes stocking up you’re doing it wrong.

  15. avatar tom coville says:

    Palmetto State Armory daily deal price and you only have to buy 20 boxes for free shipping. Even though it’s a daily deal it comes around often.

  16. avatar former water walker says:

    I don’t shoot enough to matter. Got a bunch for 8.99/50 also Federal(but Champion). Good to know though…

  17. avatar Mark N. says:

    I will be happy when Minimags drop below 10 cents a round, or copper jacket .22 LR HP falls below 5 cents.

    1. avatar Stereodude says:

      As in CCI Minimag .22LR? The 40gr LRN is under $0.07 a round shipped if you buy a case at BoneFrogGunClub. Just sign up to be notified when they have stock. PSA had 100rd boxes of 36gr HP Mini-mag for $6.99 with free shipping on 10+ boxes as a Daily Deal for like a week straight starting 9/7.

      1. avatar Stereodude says:

        Correction: The PSA deal on 36 HP CCI Mini-Mag is still going on.

  18. avatar Frank in Apex says:

    In for a case. Thanks for posting.

  19. avatar Jeffro says:

    I’m gonna hafta buy a 9mm to shoot if these prices become the new normal. How would I hide it from the 1911’s and CZ 97BD?

    1. avatar FlamencoD says:

      Get a 9mm 1911 like I did 🙂

  20. avatar Invisible Hand says:

    USE CODE H7L: $20 of $200 and free shipping. I ordered 1 boxes of 100. $200 shipped – $50 rebate comes out to $0.136 per round. Not bad.

  21. This actually answered my downside, thanks!
