    9 mm Ammo Source?

    I purchase ammo at my local range for around $10ish per 50-count box of PNC(?) or some similarly named ammo.

    Is this a good price? Can ammo be purchased through the internet for less than this without buying 1,000s of round in bulk?

    If you have an Academy Sports & Outdoors near you then that's a good place to pick up 9mm on the cheap. It's like $5.86 a box up here in OK for Blazer aluminum cased.

    Is there any issue with aluminum vs. copper casings?

    It seems like someone at my range was speaking to me about the lower melting point of aluminum and that they can bind to the barrel?

    True, untrue, unknown?

    Wal-Mart still sells 9mm CCI blazer brass rounds for 7.17 a box here in TX.

    Academy or Gander Mtn. often have good to fair prices.

    For buying in less than quantity amounts, it is not practical to buy a box or two at a time from online sources due to shipping costs.

    Boo!

    I and many many people I know shoot up a ton of the CCI Blazer aluminum and have not had one problem.

    You can get some friends who shoot 9mm and go in together to buy ammo in bulk. I have done this many times and routinely do it for ammo and reloading supplies. I always wonder if the ATF is going to show up one day asking why one of us why we are buying so much ammo?

    I just bought 5 boxes (250 rds) of Fiocchi 115 FMJ from MidwayUSA for $50 shipped. That's not cheap...it's a little less than average. On the plus side, the ammo is awesome range ammo...best I've ever used for practice.

    a 1000 rounds doesn't last long

    True, whenever I go I shot 150 rounds no problem, and that was with a gun that hurt me and had a small magazine capacity.

    Now I have my 10 and 16 round clips... I'll go through 500 a visit. Yes.

    I like the Ammo Man, I have had good luck with them and it's free shipping. They might not a huge selection but it's all good quality ammo to great quality at very fair prices.

    I just bought a case of a 1000 rds of .45 acp Speer Lawman and a 1,000 rd case of Federal American Eagle both for practice. I thought it was a pretty good deal.

    ETA - Website! www.ammoman.com This is also assuming you are buying in bulk. That's the only way I do it, I buy it in the large quantites to get the best deal.

    I have also found that LEO's get nice discount's on ammo most places, so if you have a LEO friend that can buy it with his ID you both can split what you want between the two of you. I am doing this next time with a friend that is a LEO who mentioned it to me so we can both get a deal. Food for thought!

    http://www.sportsmansguide.com/browse/browse_ammo.asp I joined the BUYER'S CLUB a long time ago at Sportsman's Guide and it's paid for itself many times over in savings. EX: I got 250rds of 9mm ball for about $5.80 per box delivered! Not Wolf or any other Eastern Euro trash, either!
