    Generally not.
    But Sparkfun and Adafruit have them preloaded.
    Both are around $6

    If you buy the chips from Digikey or Mouser they will not have a bootloader. They will be "bare".

    Thank for the answer.
    The reason i post the question is I wanted a bare chip.
    So JimG said Digkey and Mouser do sell the bare chip Atmega328 p-pu and Atmega328 pu good to know.

    Even if the chip has a boot loader already programmed you can reprogram it.
