AmmoSquared: a Subscription Service for Ammo
Kevin Crank 09.16.16
Ever wanted a Costco or Avon for ammunition? Look no further. Ammo Squared is an ammunition subscription service that takes the concept of buying in bulk in new directions.
Here’s how it works:
- Pick the ammunition you would like.
- Let your supply fill up over time.
- Pick when you want them to ship your ammo. Once a month, when your round count reaches what you asked for, or even ship right now.
- Get shooting on the regular while beating retail price!
This is the perfect way to try before you buy, so to speak. For instance, if I have been hemming and hawing about trying out a different self defense or training ammunition and I saw them offering it, I’d set up an order for five bucks each and have it shipped out to test. I’m personally eyeballing a box of 357 Magnum PMC Bronze.
This is one of those ideas that make you sit back and say, “Why didn’t I think of that?” Their ammunition offerings range from .17 Winchester to 12 Gauge, and even hard to find loads like 44 special and 7.5×55 Swiss. The brands and calibers they offer are currently limited to what you see, but right at the bottom of the list page they do accept suggestions. If you bug them enough, we may someday see them stocking 50 BMG.
There is a message, or request in this case, that I sent them myself on including reloading supplies.
This service is amazing, but there is a facet of it that I think would really take off. If you offered reloading components, brass, powder, bullets, and primers, packaged in smaller batches by amount or ounces so people can try stuff out before getting a whole box or jug. I think that would be dynamite. Not literally of course.
I can’t wait to see if they take me up on that idea. But like I said, they have a good thing going here, and I hope to see them expand and flourish.
