The Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) is pleased to announce the recent acquisition of .30 carbine, .22 pistol, M2 ball, and .22 Long Rifle surplus ammunition supply that will soon become available to CMP customers. Currently, the items are in the cataloging and assessment stage by staff members.
“The CMP plans to make the ammunition available to our loyal constituents sometime this spring, after the surplus ammo goes through all CMP in-processing procedures,” said Mark Johnson, CMP’s Chief Operating Officer and Director of Civilian Marksmanship. “Purchase limits and restrictions will be set to ensure that the mission of CMP is well served.”
The CMP intends on maintaining a surplus ammo inventory large enough to support CMP Matches for the next several years and to provide discounted surplus ammo to competitors attending CMP events. All sales will include set limits to remain in compliance with guidelines specified in the Memorandum of Agreement between the Department of the Army and the CMP.
Further surplus sales details will be forthcoming in the near future. Commercial ammunition sales are currently available on the CMP E-Store to qualified individuals. Register for an account or browse the CMP E-Store at https://estore.thecmp.org.

Great thanks a loyal customer to cmp
Please let me know when 3006 Ammo available Don
.22 ammo sale
“Purchase limits and restrictions will be set to ensure that the mission of CMP is well served.”
Thank You for setting limits so the gunshows resellers, and hoarders can be kept in check.
Also good to see that supporting CMP matches is emphasized.
Thanks for the information, supporting the real mission of the CMP and for putting up with people repeating the same questions. 😉
Keep me informed. Will any of the .22 be low pressure?
Yes, please keep me informed & any idea what the prices will be?
Will the source of this surplus ammo be revealed to us?
The photo shows Lake City 800 round crates of .30 M2 ball. Those will be 2 400 round cans of 20 round boxes.
Sure hope this ammo will also be available for loyal online customers who don’t live close enough to any CMP facility or range to participate in activities. Hope it will be for sale in the EStore… Just saying…
Any 22 short ammo ?
30-06 ammo for my m1 grand when available thanks
Is this U.S Military Surplus Ammo or is this from overseas ?
Will there be sales of surplus ammo to CMP associated clubs? Surplus 30 cal and 22lr will surely help our junior shooters since current ammo prices are still high and hard to find.
I’ll pass this along to our Management Team!
Do I read in between the lines?
“The CMP intends on maintaining a surplus ammo inventory large enough to support CMP Matches for the next several years and to provide discounted surplus ammo to competitors attending CMP events.”
It doesn’t say anything about offering via internet sales, seems to be for matches and for in person sales, makes no mention of the Estore.
Details are pending and will be announced once finalized.
are there any 1911 magazine (clips) for sale
Howard, I don’t believe so but I’ll pass along your inquiry to our 1911 customer service.
Not at this time.
GOOD NEWS ON AMMO!
Happy days are here again …….
My m1 Garand can hardly wait to chew up some of that surplus ammo
No mention of M1 ammo… 30 carbine isn’t same as M1 (30-06).
It says M2 Ball.
M2 ball. That’s M1 ammo right there.
The M2 Ball mentioned IS the 30.06 ammo for the Garand.
Please apprise when 22 long ammunition comes available for civilian purchase please!
This great news for the CMP shooing community.
Thanks to all at the CMP to make this happen
What a blessing I have a 30 cabine and can’t find ammo.
Me too, 30 Carbine ammo is almost nonexistent nowadays.
Would be helpful to have some available.
Thank you CMP!
IS SOME OF THE SURPLUS AMMO TO BE SOLD? WILL BE FOR 30-06 M1 GARAND
The items are in the cataloging and assessment stage by staff members at this time. The CMP plans to make the ammunition available to our loyal constituents sometime this spring, after the surplus ammo goes through all CMP in-processing procedures.
Thank You Christine
This is awesome. I hope to get some ammo for my two M1s. I had to find some on Gun Broker and it was not only challenging but costly. Any idea of what the price will be?
Currently, the items are in the cataloging and assessment stage by staff members. More details to come.
Does CMP test fire some from each Lot number. Can you confirm this is surplus from overseas
or is it from US Army supply stores, or a combination of the 2 sources?
