    Really, any name brand of 9mm range ammo -- CCI, UMC, Magtech, AE, S&B -- are all fine for the range, accuracy-wise.

    It's usually a toss up between which has the lowest price at the moment between Remington, Winchester, or Blazer. They all work just fine. The Remington cheap stuff seems to be a bit more accurate in my experience, but it all works fine. I have also had some good accuracy out of the S&B in .45acp. I just buy whichever is cheapest.

    Lots of people use Wolf, but I don't use it in anything but AK rilfes. Many people do, and it works fine for them.

    None of them are going to give you match grade grouping, but they'll all poke holes in the paper or knock over bowling pins or make a ding noise on steel plates.

    No experience with Wolf. I refuse to use the cheap Russian steel cased stuff.

    i have put over 11k rds of UMC thru the 19. Some say it really dirty but i cant tell. Plus it is a glock, it doesnt matter it is going to feed either way. I just bought 4k rds at 7.98 abox. Cant beat that this day and age.

    I prefer Blazer Brass, WWB, and UMC in that order (for my pistols). Walmart is where I buy pretty much all of my range ammo.

    I've always used Winchester White Box. I've never come across a bad round and I've shot thousands of them. They are fairly cheap and reliable. If worst came to worst, you would have a decent stockpile of SHTF ammo if all you buy is WWB

    For your 9mm go down to your local Wal-Mart and pick up 100 count winchester white box for just under $20 bucks. You can also pick up 100 count winchester of 38 special ammo for just under $30 bucks. I use this for the range. It feeds fine and is not dirty ammo. Also the price is right!

    On that note, avoid "American Ammunition," which is horribly bad-QC stuff. Horror stories abound. In my case, an obviously double-charged AA round of .45ACP KB-ed my G30 to pieces years ago.

    I've used Wolf Ammo before because it's cheap and pretty accurate. The only thing I didn't like about it was it was dirty.
