You can't beat Speer Lawman for the price and quality in my opinion. It is about the only bulk ammo I will purchase.
Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

Some shooting schools will not allow reloaded ammo.
Just a heads up, in case you weren't already aware

If you are traveling by air to school I would try to find company that will ship to the school. Assuming school will/can accept. It makes things a lot easier.
And do a "Chamber Check" of every round you want to shoot drop the bullet into the barrel of your gun and let it fall out of it into a box below with no tapping or pressing on it. You will find bullits that will not go into the chamber and those will take your gun down until you can clear the malfunction. I chamber check all ammo that goes into all my guns so I have a 100% confidence factor that it will shoot and chamber the next round. That goes especially for "Social Ammo" fill in the blanks for the manufacturer!!!
