My LGS buddy said the minimum amount of 9mm he can order from Winchester is a pallet. How many cases in a pallet?

He wasn't sure and asked me. He had never ordered that much 9mm before. I think he has ordered pallets of 12 gauge for clay birds.

I am not sure if there is an official measurement of a pallet but I have seen pallets of Winchester 9mm with 200,000 rounds. 200 cases

I think the important question is "how much per thousand round " can he purchase it at ? That pretty much will tell him if he can sell it and make a reasonable profit. JMO.

Academy Sports used to sell Blazer Aluminum 9mm for just under $5 a box of 50. (This was 15 years ago.) I don't know how many times I wished I had bought a pallet back then.

Can you imagine? $20K for 200K rounds?

Correction, Blazer Aluminum was $3.99/box back then. Brass 9mm was commonly available at Academy and Walmart for $5/box.

I remember during the Obama administration guys balking at paying 25cpr for 9mm. Seems so humorously quaint considering how guys now would jump on a pallet for 25cpr.

Okay, make the pallet $16K.

When I first started buying aluminum Blazer it was 3.86 per box. I had to drive from central Illinois to Nashville to get it. However, I was driving to Talladega twice a year, so I stocked up each time on my way through town. Several time I called ahead to have some set aside, but that never worked. The person I would talk to was never there the day I was.

One year, I was the only guy at the track with a Sig, 3 magazines and 8242 rds of ammo.

Shotgun shell pallets are 96 cases from RIO. I believe Winchester 9mm is in the neighborhood of 70 cases average. It is Important to know which SKU he is talking about. Most of their stuff comes in 500 round cases, some in 1000, some in 1200, etc.

I would say your limited to the weight a pallet jack can move in a semi trailer. Average pallet jack can lift 5500 lbs. Lets say 50lb for a 1000 round case of 9mm. You would be looking at about 110 cases.

I used to do the ammo ordering for my department. We purchased from a large distributor who often stacked their own pallets, and at the time, we weren't buying much 9mm as we were shooting primarily 40cal.

However, on a few occasions they would have factory pallets dropped shipped from the manufacturer or importer. I remember getting Magtec at 50 cases to pallet, but the packaging was not an efficient, compact style.

Another time we got a pallet of PRVI PARTIZAN that was very very compact and dense packaging. They cases were tiny for holding 1000 rounds. I think that one that one had around 75k rounds on it.

My biggest single shipment was 7 pallets of mixed goods.

I saw this ad on another forum yesterday and at $.56 a round that comes out to $71,680.00.

Pallets of PMC "X-TAC" 55grain 5.56 NATO available for delivery. $0.56 cents per round delivered. One pallet is 128,000 rounds packaged in 1000 round cases.

I remember those days at Academy.
Anecdote 1. A friend picked up a case of Blazer at the gun counter and took it to checkout. It scanned for $3.86. He said "That is the price for a box, I have a case of 20 boxes." The clerk insisted that the computer was right, and would not summon the manager, so he quit arguing and took his 19 free boxes home.

Anecdote 2. I had a case and a half of Blazers in the closet at the time of the Incident with house fire. They LOOKED ok, after the boxes dried out, most would fire. But many of the aluminum cases split. A friend at the range saw flash out the ejection port. I stopped shooting but not in time to avoid a scored chamber that had to be polished.
