    Noob from South Carolina - Ammo recommendations?

    Hello everyone,

    New from South Carolina and just received the G26 9mm for Christmas. Trying to find good ammo for the range
    as well as for defense, although I do not know the difference between 9mm +P / 9mm P+ ...etc. Any help would
    be much appreciated! Thanks for your time.

    Welcome from Fort Worth, Texas.

    If you start a new thread over here Defensive Ammunition & Ballistics you might get a better response to your question.

    I use Remington UMC 115g FMJ at the range. I can usually find the 250 round box at Walmart.

    For carry ammo I use Federal Hydra Shock 147g JHP. I can also usually find this at Walmart.

    Any may be a tad hard to find right now but with Glock's reputation any brand should be okay.
    Winchester White Box is a good range ammo. Wally World normally would carry it. I've used it
    in .38s and .380s without any problems.

    Welcome from Wisconsin!

    With a Glock you can feed it just about anything. I use .40 cal & stick with Speer Gold Dots or Federal Tactical HST. Many also use that ammo in 9MM. Good for self defense but expensive.

    For self defense choices start here.

    Any major manufacturer whose ammo cycles well in YOUR gun will be a good choice.

    Welcome from Virginia.

    As for defensive ammo, most any of the major manufacturers will preform satisfactorily down range. The question is what ammo works best in your particular gun. No 2 guns are the same. You'll need to experiment to see what works best in your gun. It can get expensive, especially now. When you can find some, and it works for you, stick with it until availability gets better.

    Welcome from the Midlands of SC.

    I do not own a Glock, but hear many people stating that a Glock will shoot anything.

    For cost reasons and availability I have been shooting American and Blazer Brass 9mm 124gr (standard P). I get my target ammo from Palmetto State Armory in Columbia. Currently, they are still showing some Blazer Brass 115gr still in stock: 9mm Luger - Handgun Ammunition - Ammunition

    Academy also has a decent selection and pricing, but I have not checked availability lately. But as stated by another poster, good luck finding ammo right now.

    For a protection round, I recently ordered 150 rounds of Speer Gold Dot in 124gr from sgammo.com. Great pricing and no issues shipping and receiving my order. But they are low on supply too.

    Good luck finding some ammo and have fun with your new gun.

    Ed
