    Saiga 12 on the way, what ammo?

    I just ordered a Saiga 12 today and am looking for some good SD/range ammo. I also bought an extra Saiga 5rd mag and two 12 rd Surefire mags. What's a good ammo to start stocking up on that won't break the bank?

    Thanks.

    Thanks,

    I noticed ammunitiontogo also had a good deal on the Remington LE 00:

    I can save $30 per 250 with the Remington. What makes the Winchester a better choice? Anything cheaper out there for strict range fun?

    Thanks again.

    I don't own one, but wanted to thank you for this post. It reminded me about a firearm (Saiga 12) I wanted to look into more.

    You can also try some hollow point slugs from Federal. The gun can fire both low recoil, full power, 2-3/4 & 3" shells. LOTS of choices! Check with your range in it's indoors. Some have a preference of slugs vs shot and vice versa.

    Just DON'T fire full power loads on the low power setting. Can bang up the internals after awhile.

    Thanks for the replies everyone.

    Well, for range duty I picked up 200rds of Federal 12ga (value packs) from WallyWorld for $44. I couldn't resist at that price. That should make for some cheap, fun range time.
