A Complete Guide to Buying Ammunition Online
DEGuns offers a premium selection of ammunition for your rifles, shotguns, pistols and other firearms. Buying ammunition online offers gun owners a number of benefits. We recommend you buy your ammo online, and bring it to a shooting range or hunting ground. You can find great savings on ammunition when you buy from an online supplier like DEGuns instead of a range where you may sometimes see up to 50% price increases on the exact same ammunition. This guide from DEGuns will teach you what to look for when buying ammo online and detail some of the obstacles you may run into. We will also suggest popular products from our extensive selection of ammunition.

Buy Ammunition Online from DE Guns

DEGuns features one of the best selections of online ammunition available. Whether you are hunting, shooting for sport, or defending your home, DEGuns can deliver what you need. This applies to pistols, revolvers, rifles, shotguns, and more.

Here is a quick breakdown of ammunition abbreviations that may be helpful as you browse through the large selection of ammunition available from DEGuns.

Jacketed Hollow Point (JHP):

These rounds are designed to expand upon impact with the target. This means they transfer more energy to the target than if they simply punctured it. It will reduce over penetration as well, which can be a serious safety issue depending on the purpose of the gun.

Full Metal Jacket (FMJ):

These rounds are manufactured with a soft metal core, often consisting lead. The exterior of these rounds is usually gilding metal or a steel alloy. Generally the jacketing leaves the back of the round uncovered while the front and side are protected. These rounds require far less cleanup after shooting which means they make it easier to maintain your gun.

Jacketed Soft-Point (JSP):

Jacketed soft-point ammunition is the middle ground between the two previous types of ammo. It frequently consists of an exposed lead-tip with the rest jacketed in copper. These offer better penetration than a hollow point while providing better expansion than a full metal jacketed round. The drawback is that it underperforms both in their respective uses.

The S&B Sellier & Bellot 9mm Luger Ammunition 124 Grain is the choice of hunters, competitive shooters, and law enforcement agencies. This non-corrosive ammo in reloadable brass cases is designed to decrease the chances of deformation upon impact.

The special technology of our Glow Ammo lets you see where each bullet lands, allowing you to track the trajectory of your shots. This lets you make adjustments to your aim on the fly mid-magazine.

These MagTech 9mm solid copper hollow points are Nickel-plated with a muzzle velocity of 1330 fps and a muzzle energy of 364 pounds.

The PolyCase ARX Inceptor is designed for use in self-defense situations. It is manufactured to not expand upon impact with the target. This round is made of a lead-free copper-polymer material that can penetrate soft tissue, but will break up when encountering harder objects. This reduces the risk of collateral damage.
The twisted grooves in the top are specially designed to harness the rotational energy of the bullet during the initial 6 inches of penetration. The construction of the nose creates a predictable tumble for the bullet as well. This can help stop an intruder or assailant rapidly and consistently. This bullet is safe for use with suppressors, and will not disintegrate in the barrel like sintered bullets. This round has a muzzle velocity of 1410 FPS and a muzzle energy of 433 foot-pounds.

The Benefits of Buying Ammo Online from DEGuns

When you buy ammo online, you can find more competitive prices, and greater available quantities. It should be noted that laws on buying ammo vary by state. That means you should double check how everything we say applies to your particular area. Here are a few simple examples to give you a sense of some of the obstacles you may encounter. If you know your way around laws like these in your area, you can save money while stocking up on quality ammunition.

In Alaska: Ammo and primer shipments are forbidden.

California: No shipping to (as of now) the cities of Beverly Hills, Carson, Marin County, Oakland, Sacramento, San Francisco, & Los Angeles. Tracer ammunition is forbidden for online use.

It is important to know the specific ammunition laws of your state.
