That is why we are known as America’s Pro-Freedom Ammo Source, and that is what sets us apart from the rest (as well as some of the cheapest ammo online).

We Support Freedom

NRA Ring of Freedom MemberOver 13 years ago, our Founding Fathers preserved our right to keep and bear arms in the Bill of Rights to the Constitution. We join them in that fight more than two centuries later by financially supporting organizations that continue to protect our Second Amendment rights.

After placing your order, choose from a hand-picked list of pro-freedom organizations including the NRA, Soldiers’ Angels, Homes for Our Troops, Second Amendment Foundation, and more. We will donate 1% of your total purchase to the organization of your choice – at no cost to you.

We Arm Customers Physically & Philosophically

People of the GunWhat makes the right to keep and bear arms so important? Simply put, the individual right to defend against aggression is fundamental to civil society. Self defense is a natural safeguard against violations by individuals or oppression by institutions, such as an increasingly powerful and unaccountable government. History has repeatedly shown that absent this protection, dominating rulers will use force to subjugate and trample the rights of defenseless individuals. We believe the best ammo deals will help Americans stay armed.

Criminals want soft targets, individuals who can’t or won’t fight back. Unchecked power corrupts even the best, and people who have known too much power over others for too long become increasingly comfortable with harsh and extreme measures. This is part of what happens when police officers brutalize the citizens they have sworn to protect. The corrupting effect of too much power is what permits a government to slaughter their own unarmed citizens, as we have seen too many times in the last century.

The Second Amendment was established to prevent such an imbalance of power. It protects our natural rights to live free of domination and coercion, both as individuals and as Americans. Because if we don’t have the ability to defend ourselves, we also risk losing the free exercise of our many other rights.

We at palmettosurplusammo.com are proud to be America’s Pro-Freedom Ammo Source, and we’re determined to earn your business and your trust.

Ammo Brands


When most people think of the history of firearms, they think of the weapons themselves. But a gun is useless without its ammunition, which has a long and storied history in the United States – dating back to the Founding Fathers and the use of armories. Commercial ammo as we know it today began with a familiar name, Eliaphalet Remington, who founded what is now the oldest manufacturer of firearms in the U.S. in 1816. Remington paved the way for ammo brands across the country like Hornady and Winchester, as well as international brands like Italy’s Fiocchi, Russia’s Wolf, and South Korea’s PMC.

We offer these brands and many more. Browse our inventory and learn the fascinating history behind these iconic ammunition manufacturers.

Casings, Primers, Bullets & Shotgun Projectiles


We go beyond offering you the best deals on ammunition – we want our customers to understand the anatomy of ammo. To do this, we must begin with casings. Available in aluminum, brass, nickel, steel and mixed varieties, casings are the ammunition “packaging” and can determine cost, weight, shelf life, and reloading capabilities.

Inside these casings are primers, which is what gets struck by the firing pin, creates a flash and ignites the powder. They are available in Boxer, Berdan and rimfire – each factors for performance, size and calibers.

Propelled by this ignition is the bullet, which is simply the projectile and can come in dozens of varieties – including hollow point, full metal jacket, lead round nose, soft point and more – that determine power, penetration, speed, expansion, safety and many other factors. Shotgun projectiles have similar qualities, but with pellets instead of a single bullet.
