    A Good Deal with the Free shipping
    This is a very good deal as it is hard to sometimes even find ammo for these older cartridges and when you do the prices are usually even higher. With the Free shipping on $25 or more this becomes an even a better deal. This ammo shoots and functions well in my guns and I would not hesitate to buy it again.

    Hard To Find
    These rounds were hard to find because the firearm is over 40 years old and the design of the firearm dates back to the 1920s.

    Good Ammunition
    I bought one box of .38 Special to try out. We ran most of the box through a Colt Diamondback. It functioned flawlessly. There was carbon residue at the end of the barrel as there should be with that many rounds, but the barrel was only slighly dirty. I will purchase this ammunition again.

    Ammo
    I had been looking for this type ammo for some time. Academy had it and they shipped it just as they said they would. The price was great and the service great.

    Decent ammo for the price
    Main point of writing this was to point out that the GTL20 ammo in 20 ga runs at 1210 fps. Not sure why this spec is excluded, as it's one of the most important aspects of selecting ammo.

    Federal Hydra Shok
    I have used this ammunition since the 90s where it was the issue ammunition of the Police Dept I worked for. It is great ammo, very reliable but the Federal HST is a newer more impressive round but with either I would feel very comfortable using it in a self defense situation.

    Great bullets and fast shipping.
    Academy had the best pricing on these bullets when they were running free shipping on orders over $39. These are very accurate out of my Ruger Super Redhawk and Henry Big Boy rifle. 31 gr of H110 pushes these bullets pretty fast.

    Good Bullet, Fast Service
    I needed a bullet for some long range target shooting and had some of these left over from hunting handloads, so I tried them. They worked great out to 550 yards on metal silhouettes (,270's out to 1100 yards) and I have used them for three years now. Even more impressive was Academy's shipping. I ordered them online late Sunday afternoon and they were delivered Tuesday at noon.

    Great!
    I ordered these for my hubby because the store was out and we never expected to receive the shipping the next day! It was great turn around on shipping and free. Very impressed. The price of the product was about the same as other websites or a little more but the free shipping and time saved made it worth ordering from Academy instead.

    Factory-like Reloads
    Fast, Free, shipping from Academy Sports all the way to Arizona. This is quality shotgun ammo that performs perfectly in my 12 gauge guns. Mild recoil and report makes shooting a hundred rounds a pleasure on the sporting clays course. The empty hulls reload beautifully on my basic equipment using a variety of components.

Choose the Right Size Ammunition for Your Gun

Before purchasing ammunition online, consider what type of ammunition will work with your existing rifle, shotgun, pistol or other firearm. The caliber of ammunition indicates the internal diameter of each bullet's barrel and is an easy way to determine whether a bullet will fit in your gun. A common caliber is .22 and is often followed by letters, such as .22 L and .22 S, which show that the bullets are designed to work with long-barrel and short-barrel rifles, respectively. By selecting appropriate rifle ammunition and other firearm ammunition, the incidence of jamming is greatly reduced.

Ammunition Construction

Whether you plan on using ammunition for target practice, hunting purposes or defensive measures, there is plenty of ammunition for sale from many different popular brands, including Federal ammunition and Winchester ammunition. To ensure a kill shot when hunting big game, like caribou or deer, choose hollow-tip ammunition, which has a hole in the center that allows the bullet to expand upon impact, optimizing internal damage. Bullets with a full metal jacket are perfect for shooting targets, since their casing lets them travel faster.

Rimfire or Centerfire Ammunition

Ammunition is largely divided into 2 sections - rimfire ammunition and centerfire ammunition. When it comes to choosing between the 2, centerfire ammunition is generally the better, more versatile option, since centerfire bullets travel faster than rimfire bullets, feature bigger casings and hold more gun powder.
