About Us

Quality is Our Past, Present, and Future:

It’s nothing to see a new shooting supply retailer pop up on the internet every other day. Well, we’ve been at this for a long time, and we are proud to celebrate 50 years of serving shooters. From our humble beginnings to our current warehouse, we’ve always held true to our core values of service and dedication. We believe in fair prices for items that our shooters, hunters, and reloaders need, while providing honest shipping based on weight and distance, hand-packed in our warehouse to ensure the items reaches our customer in the best shape possible.

Truly an American Story

The Ammo Depot Store started out in a small shed in New Market, Tennessee. The owner at that time was a man named Walter Hawk. Back then, in 1969, The Ammo Depot Store was like a lot of other retailers in this industry. Every item The Ammo Depot Store carried was in a catalog. Folks would call up, with their part numbers ready to go, and give their order to Mr. Hawk. As the business grew, the shed had to be added on to. Several new buildings were added to accommodate the increase in inventory and demand. It got to a point where the business had outgrown New Market, and was destined for greater things. In those first years, The Ammo Depot Store developed its core system of doing things by hand, to the best of our abilities, and at a price customers can appreciate.

Some frequently asked questions to us have their answers provided below

Hazmat Charges
Smokeless Powder & Primers
All orders containing smokeless powder, primers, or percussion caps will charged a $16.00 hazardous materials charge per shipping box containing these items. If shipped by air, then primers, percussion caps, and loaded ammunition will be charged $40.00 per box. Smokeless Powder cannot be shipped by air. Powder and primers can be packed together on ground shipments for one hazardous charge provided the total weight of the order (including packaging) remains below 50 lbs. (Feb 2020: Due to a recent change in shipping policies from both FedEX and UPS, packages over 50lbs will incur a $12.00 Shipping Surcharge. This means that we will have to limit the amount of actual weight of Hazardous Materials to 40lbs per HazMat box to ensure that there is enough of a buffer to meet the overpacking requirement by UPS and FedEx. ) If your order must go in more than one box an additional hazardous materials charge of $16.00 may be charged. You will be notified before this happens to approve charge. We will always attempt to configure the package to help optimize the shipment at the lowest possible cost. NOTE: Hazardous products may not be returned. Please be sure to double check your order involving these items carefully before confirming.
About Circumventing Limits
Circumventing Limits
About Circumventing Limits – We are fully aware that customers are creating multiple accounts under variations of their own name, wife’s name, neighbor, cousin, mom…etc. We ask that you please don’t do this. If we suspect that an account was created to circumvent these limits, we are deleting the orders. Period. As a company, we do not have the time and resources to devote to the high volume of accounts that have received products by developing ways around the basic, unsophisticated limits that we originally put in place. We are asking you, our customer to help us help other shooters as well.
About Purchase Limits
Why do I not get Midsouth's e-mails?
You as a shooter or reloader have become fully aware of the shortage and demand that Covid, Riots, Elections, Gun Legislation, new gun owners as a result of all of these situations and now the “Entrepreneurial Opportunists” have placed on the shooting industry and supplies. In an effort to supply as many customers across the board as we possibly can, we are having to go to extra lengths to ensure that all customers are offered the opportunity to get these supplies. In order to make sure that you are able to get some of our very limited inventory, we are placing limits on all customers to ensure that not only a small portion of customers are continually getting the bulk of it. These limits change according to our current inventory and what we have received to sell. Some limits may go according to the specific item, some limits may cover a specific category (like ammunition or smokeless powder*) some may cover a time frame for that product or category and some limits may include all of the above. We know that this is confusing and an inconvenience, but we also know that this is the only way that we can accommodate more of you to keep you loading and shooting. *Note – It may be in your best interest to not buy a maximum limit of a particular product now as a knee jerk reaction, because the product that you really want may become available later and your limit may prevent you from now getting it. (For instance: “I bought 30 lbs of ACME Boom Lite, and now Varget is available and I can’t get any”.)
