    Don't know what's the best. I seem to always wind up with Winchester White Box or American Eagle.

    The cheapest you can find that functions reliabliy and will not harm your gun.

    Well that's kind of obvious isn't it?

    So what is generally known as being reliable and non-destructive? I'm hearing bad things about WWB & Wolf- I'd rather stay away from those.....

    Never had a bad exprience with WWB.

    Wolf in my Eastbloc milsurp guns is okay. I've shot it out of my FAL. I worry about the steel case weaking the extractor. Some manufactuers warn against using steel cased ammo in their guns.

    I really like Sellier & Bellot and WWB for most of my bulk ammo purchases.

    I buy WWB at Walmart for the best price locally. I have never had an issue with WWB in either .40S&W or 9mm.

    No issues here with WWB. What bad things have you heard about WWB? Since you stated this ammo is for range/practice, why not get a box of WWB and prove it for yourself. You can and will here all kinds of myths on the internet!

    Wolf

    We got some Wolf in the shop in .45 ACP. Much cleaner than the old stuff was, no bad odor, and not a single problem in any of our guns. We were thinking of not allowing it in our rentals, but after testing, it works much better than the reputation would lead you to believe. The bad news is it's getting hard to find again and the price is going up from the distributors that do have it.

    I tried a box of Wolf 45acp a week ago and it wasn't nearly as bad as I expected it to be.

    The ammo I make myself. Less than half the cost and twice (at least) the quality. I load for quality and accuracy, not just to fill boxes to go out the door to someone looking for the cheapest they can find.

    Also, because I shoot 15-20k rounds per year I can make a reloading setup pay.

    walmart is defiantly the place to find the cheapest ammo that works well. either blazer brass or winchester white box is cheaper- depends on your cal.
    that or if there is a gun show in town i can usually find it cheaper there.
    im currently using fiocchi (sp) that i got at the gun show, but if i dont find any at the next gun show i will be going back to WWB when this stuff runs out.

    Nothing at all wrong with WWB. Save your brass for reloading.
