    Ammo in the UK

    hi.
    How much does ammunition cost in the UK. I buy ammo for my .308 in New Zealand, and prices vary a great deal from area to area.
    In Tauranga for 20 Remington Core-Lok 150g in .308 i would pay about $36.00NZ, 17.00 GBP but in the same companies store in Hamilton I would be expected to pay $45.00NZ 21.00 GBP
    Do you get that type of variation in cost in the UK or is it more even ??
    Also 12g Shot gun cartridges FIOCCHI HP 36 LEAD 12/70/12 size 6.... 2.3/4"....1 box of 25 = $17.00 NZ about 8.00 GBP


    Cheers


    Kevin.

    List price for (20) .308 150 gn varies from about 26 to 28 GBP for the good quality stuff (Federal, Hornady, Sako). I don't know abut HP 36 but Fiocchi golden pheasant 32 gram game 6's are about GBP 8.50 if you buy them by the box of 25.

    Hi Yorky07.
    How much is your sales tax? We have VAT at 20%. Knowing this may give a clearer picture of the prices. I am guessing shipping costs to N.Z. will not be cheap?

    Hello.

    GST in New Zealand is 15%. the prices I have shown include GST. If the prices Webley Boy shows are without GST ??????? then ammo can be costly in the UK.

    The most I have paid for my brand of .308 ammo is $50.00NZ about 24.00 GBP the most I can remember having seen “the good stuff” hornady etc( btw Federal is considered run of the mill ammo in NZ )
    Is about $55.00NZ ...26.50 GBP

    In NZ prices go up and down dependent on exchange rates etc. It looks like the UK has not changed i.e. prices go up but never come down.

    As for shipping costs these appear to be nominal, as everything comes in a monthly container for whichever company and costs are spread between them all.

    I am pretty sure any UK prices given on here will include Tax.
    Now we know you pay Tax at 15% we can compare apples with apples if you know what I mean?
    It would not surprise me in the slightest to discover UK is more expensive.
