Where and what do you buy for practice?

This is a discussion on Where and what do you buy for practice? within the Defensive Ammunition & Ballistics forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I like CCI's Blaser Brass. $9 for a box of fifty at the local range, slightly less at Vance's Shooters Supply, and China-Mart (Wal-Mart) which ...

    Id reload, but I have no real place to do it, my apartment's home office already doubles for so many other things.

    Just bought 1,000 rounds 9mm Luger from AmmoMan. $169 INCLUDING free shipping. Had it in one day.

    No driving, no sales tax, no gas.

    Can't beat that!

    I don't buy too much ammo any more, I reload all my practice stuff for the most part. Althought the price of stuff to reload is going up too, but not as bad as regular ammo.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    Well, I'm in the center of WallyWorld's world so-to-speak. 'Shopping around' may only mean a span of 35 miles to cover ten WM stores! The Supercenters are where it's at. Especially the new ones where I've found my current affordable supply. If you buy, they'll stock. That's my motto.

    I dont buy ammo for practice. I reload for everything I shoot except for 22 rimfire.

    Ammo and component prices have shot up so fast I cant keep up with them anymore. I kinda got away from casting my own bullets a few years ago, but do believe that I shall fire up the old furnace and resume production of my own bullets.

    nawwwwwww, you are close to the center. I'm almost dead center. LOL.

    I buy the WWB in .45 or when I go to the gun store I buy from them. Been going to the gun store more often to buy the Czech silvertips to feed my Mosins. LOL.


    oh, and I reload too!!!

    Gold Dots are cheap at Ammoman. I haven't found better with the shipping included. I can get Lawman or S&B for paper punching as cheap or cheaper locally. Last time I bought at Wally World, .40 WWB was $19.99/100. I'm not big on UMC so I only buy it if it's on sale, cheap.

    I have saved my Brass for years. I do not have room for Reloading or the Equipment and Supplies. I send my Brass to Mastercast Bullet Co. (Home Page) Most of my Ammo is 357. This Ammo is not as hot as Factory but its close. It makes for good practice in my 357 Snubs. It's good Ammo, very affordable, and the people are nice to deal with.
