    Need 800 rds 9mm for a shooting course..suggestions

    Will be attending a tactical pistol course in early June. Course requirements are 800 rounds of ammo. I'll be shooting my Glock 19. I believe that some of the targets will be reactive so factor that into your answer. Looking for a good quality/price point Thanks !

    Just any reliable, bulk-pack ball ammo (FMJ) that works well in your gun. At the last local gun show I picked up 500 rounds of Win "unleaded" 147 gr for $125... which I thought was a good price if not a screamin' deal. For a training course, I would avoid commercial reloads except perhaps for Black Hills. You don't want to be "that guy" who bogs the class down with repeated ammo-related gun problems.

    Don't worry about what ammo to get because of reactive targets. Poppers and plates will fall with a hit from even a light (115 gr) 9mm, they just go down a little faster with the heavier rounds.

    Buds gun shop has Federal 147 and 115 for 10-11 $ a box. I think a whole case runs from 215-235.

    Academy Sports had 100 rd boxes of Winchester white boxes 9mm 115 gr FMJ for around $23 if I recall correctly. That would be about $184 plus tax

    Here is 1000 rounds of Sellier Bellot FMJ at SGAmmo
    $189.95 plus 16.00 bucks for shipping.
    I have shot plenty of this out of my G17 and not a hiccup. I am kinda envious about the class :) Enjoy it!

    I'd do some shopping around. With shipping from an online store you're looking at close to 250. You probably can't beat that at a brick and mortar, but look anyway.

    your interested in cost and your taking courses--perhaps re-load

    a dillion Sq deal sets up for 1 caliber about $600,
    it resells close to what you paid, the longer you have it, but say a penny around to load.

    800 plated would cost you 3 hours and under 17 cents per round. savings of ~$50/800
    machine pays for itself in about 10K rounds. much less when you factor in resale value.

    something to think about is you are going to put in the practice ( courses and rounds down range)
    it generally takes to be as good as you wish to be.
    Be aware, be deliberate in your actions and be accurate.

    If you buy 100 rounds a week locally and stockpile them you will end up with over 800 rounds by the time your course comes up,and have no shipping charges

    last time i bought a case of 9mm I got winchester ranger 124gr fmj. the were loaded a little hotter than the stuff I get at walmart. closer to defensive ammo.

    I went through ammo to go for it. feed well. I liked it. another option if you don't mind spending a little more than what federal etc costs
