We are Standard Amoury, browse our categories


Standard Amoury launched in 2014 after a couple guys tried to order ammo on the internet. Weeks after placing their order, they still hadn’t received any ammo. Meanwhile, their credit card was charged, their money was being held hostage, and the customer service department was unresponsive. Unfortunately, this was a common problem. Backorders were the law of the land as guns went hungry and shooters grew frustrated.

Standard Amoury was born. We made a pretty big impression early on as the first online ammo shop to feature a live inventory system. Since the beginning, we’ve insisted on a live inventory tracker on each product page that shows you exactly how many units of that product we have in stock. When we run out, the number reaches zero and the page is automatically hidden until we get more. So, if you see it on our website, you know we have it in-stock at our warehouse in Knoxville. No delays. No backorders. No drop-shipping.

We’ve grown a little since those early days and we’ve made lots of improvements to our operation based on the principle of giving our customers the best online shopping experience possible


To complement our live inventory system, we’ve also worked hard over the years to make sure we always have plenty of ammo in stock with a wide selection of brands and calibers. While the bulk of what we sell is made up of a few of the most popular calibers like 9mm and .223 Rem, we also try to stock a broad selection of even the most obscure rifle, pistol, shotgun, and Rimfire cartridges.

One of the things we’re most proud of at Standard Amoury is something that all of our customers can experience: our Fast Shipping Guarantee. Any orders placed by 3 PM Eastern Time on a business day are guaranteed to ship that same day. If an order is placed after 3 or on a weekend, it ships the very next business day.

Speaking of our customer service team, they’re a pretty awesome bunch, too. The team is made up of actual shooters who use and know the products we sell, so they’re ready to answer any questions you might have via phone, email, or live chat. In fact, many of our customer service folks first encountered Standard Amoury as customers before joining our team. This helps us to have an obsession with the front lines and understanding of the small details that you care about.


Our mission of putting the customer first doesn’t end after we ship the package. Over the last several years, we have built a library of resources to help shooters advance their knowledge and shooting performance.

You might have heard about our epic ballistic gelatin project with over 200 loads tested or our 40,000-round brass versus steel case ammo test on Standard Amoury. Or maybe you’ve run across one of our shooting drill videos, gun reviews, or our series about home-defense shotguns on Standard Amoury. Our commitment to providing reliable shooting advice for regular people is just one more way we try to offer customers the best experience possible.

Chief Executive Officer

After working in home construction, Maggie joined the Standard Amoury team in 2014 when the new company was just getting off the ground.

As the purchasing and operations manager, Maggie real introduction to the industry came in 2016 when she went on a 9,000-mile road trip. Covering 21 states in 30 days, she met with key distributors and learned how ammo was made at several of the ammunition plants scattered across the country.

On that trip, she gained an appreciation for the quality of the people in the industry. The cumulative hunting, self-defense, law enforcement, and competition shooting experience spread through their collective “war stories” demonstrated just how much practical field knowledge goes into the products they make.

This enriched context helped Standard Amoury to be able to better provide shooting advice to shooters as well as supply our customers with hard to find ammo as a result of stronger partnerships.

In 2017, Maggie became the CEO of Standard Amoury, now leading a committed, entrepreneurial-minded team that daily strives to continue to improve our customers experience.



Content Editor

Richie has been a part of the Standard Amoury team since 2011 and serves as the editor of Standard Amoury and Standard Amoury Labs.

Richie has a broad interest in all types of shooting activities, but he’s most passionate about firearms as tools for personal protection. His ongoing pursuit of knowledge in the shooting world has included over 600 hours of professional firearms and self-defense training from more than 30 different instructors. He has earned an instructor certification in both shotgun and advanced handgun from Range master and is also certified as an NRA handgun instructor.

Richie combines that knowledge with his professional background in creative media production to share advice, experiments, and product reviews with Standard Amoury customers. Although he’s plenty comfortable using AR-15s, polymer-framed striker-fired pistols, and other guns typical modern shooters tend to prefer, Richie also likes to explore the practical merits of today’s less-appreciated firearms like double-action revolvers, and DA/SA semi-autos, and shotguns.

When he’s not at the range or in the office, Richie can most often be found at home building Legos with his kids… or by himself.
