Does anyone have a favorite value priced ammo that you like for 9mm that shoots real well? Or a projectile company that makes a good high quality consistent head? I have found that value ammo is very inaccurate in my pistol. My reloads aren't any better (Value heads) When I shoot high dollar defense ammo, my groups are cut in half. Not sure if the bullets are just more consistent in the defense factory loads? This isn't a huge deal since my high volume shooting is as much about trigger time as it is about hitting little things.
With crappy ammo and reloads I can hold about 5" groups at 15 yds or so. With Corbon JHP's this shrinks to 2-3 inches. This is benched trying to wring out the best I can do. Ruger SR9. Thx.
What's that cost per 50 rds? Cheap factory ammo is $10 if you are lucky and want to buy a bunch. Reloads with cheap heads is like $6.50 per 50. Just wondering if you can stay in that price point with a certain factory load or a certain head that shows a tendency to be accurate. Tall order....$6.50 - $10.00 is cheap these days and getting the best of everything at that price is probably a dream.
Thanks for the load. If I can find that powder I will get a pound. One good thing with Auto's is that a lb of powder gets you at least 1,000 rds of shooting. It can always be used up, even if it isn't ideal, on blamo ammo.
I don't know how accurate you need but Blazer brass is pretty economical and shoots well in my Pro and Shield (I can chew racquetball size holes to about 25yds and hit IPSC and poppers to a little over 50yds, more importantly no malfunctions). I normally pay $99 for 350 but found it on sale for $75 at the local hardware store a couple weeks back.
These. They have been out for over a year. I read some reviews but have never seen them in person or know anyone who has used them. I like brass cases because I can reload them one day In the event of ammo shortages. In any event, they are at least interesting.
I hadn't seen those. I don't load pistol but I've gotten thousands of once fired in case I ever decide to. I've considered talking it to a local company that sells re-manufactured ammo and seeing if they have a trade in program.
I see this is a old post. But as my wife tells me all the time I'm a value shopper. To be honest, I just use stores against each other. If they say they match or beat all competition, I try and find out. Dicks Sporting Good, I'm sure hates when I walk in. I tell them all the time they pay me to shop there. So back to the 9mm ammo. I like Winchester value 100 pack, for me it's good ammo to shoot and play at the range with. Walmart and Dicks sell it, but Dicks is higher priced. So I get them to match Walmart. Dicks also has coupons and reward dollars. I like that! Here is what I do. Walmart 100 rds Winchester $18.97 Make Dicks guarantee the match plus use a $20 off a $100. Plus if I use reward dollars which can be applied with a coupon. I'm paying either .15 a round with coupon or with a reward and coupon .13 per round. That's buying 600 rounds, price per round goes up if you buy more. Coupon is only $20 of $100 so I try to hit $100 or close to it as I can. This gets me the best per round cost.
