    9mm...If not WWB, then what is best practice round?

    Been using 9 mm Winchester White Box for my practice round, but it is really scarce right now. Any suggestions on another good round for my G26? Do not mind purchasing online if shipping is reasonable.

    Blazer Brass is sometimes available over WWB at Wally World.

    Wolf seems to be really popular online. Heard it's pretty dirty though. I just stock up on WWB whenever Wally World gets some in.

    Whatever bangs in a not-steel case. I like UMC. Is ammo really that hard to find nowadays???

    I just got 2000 rds of Speer Lawman from Natchez. The price came out to $11 a box shipped. That is roughly the same price as buying WWB from Walmart and then paying sales tax on it.
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    I practice with Federal American Eagle 124grain or 115grain 9mm FMJ. I can purchase these for $11-$12 per box of 50rds. If you shoot alot, you can purchase 1000rds. from budsgunshop.com for something like $219.

    WWB, Remington UMC, Blazer, Federal, or whatever you can get your hands on. It's getting hard to find.

    Magtech, Seillor-Bellot, Aquila, Blazer, Wolf. Whatever is available. Never had a problem with any of these, tho they may not be the cleanest choice, that don't seem that much worse than WWB.

    Shot some Winchester Ranger Mil-Spe 124gr FMJ's that worked really well were clean.

    One of the local shops has the Magtech, S-B and Aquila for $8-$10 (depending on brand) for 50 round boxes.

    Generally I use the Federal 115 or 124 gr also. My S&W 9mm M&P will eat up just about anything but I like the Federal, Sellier & Bellot, Magtech, and Independence. I found Wolf just a little too dirty to shoot and I really don't like it although t does work well.

    In short, at Wally World it is! I'd look at other options if this situation does not change.

    Reloading is generaly the best way to shoot great ammo at cheap prices.
