The best cheapest ammunition is that which I load at my loading bench. When and if this blows over one should give some thought to getting into reloading,take control of your ammunition quality and it's supply. SJ 40

Brass is better IMO. Reloadable. And easier on extractor.

I agree.

My LGS has been getting some ammo in on a regular bases. But they are limiting it to 1 to 3 boxes a day depending caliber and what they get in. Not great prices but not extreme either. I'm just happy to find it and get it. I did get 7 boxes of Federal champion 9mm at Walmart just over a month ago. But nothing there since.

Heres my LGS score in the last couple weeks. The .22LR are CCI Mini Mags(I remember getting it for $5.99 a 100 on sale at GM about a year ago).

I like Fiocchi and so does my G17... never had a problem

However, winchester, lawman, blazer, S&B, American eagle are all fine... literally whatever you can find for a decent price will be fine

only federal champion red box has given me a problem, just too weak of a load to cycle reliably... could have been that specific lot or that my glock wasnt broken in enough yet

These days, anything under $25/box is cheap. I'm glad I stocked up in 2007 before Odummy got into office. Was paying $7 for 9mm and $9 for .40 cal back then.

everything at Gander Mountain is pre-crises Gander pricing; only problem is you need to get in line between midnight and 7am on ammo delivery day to get the first 40 numbers to buy said ammo

The stuff I make in my shop is pretty cheap. And reliable to boot.

I guess what I'm asking is, what are you using that isn't crap but not expensive either?
Tula. After that, Federal Champion and Winchester White Box. After that... there's nothing one can really call cheap.

Just got a source for 45acp. $1 a round for self defense. $28 for 50 round nose or wad cutters. I'm feeding my xdm compact so lead works. A little pricey, but, I can get all I want.

I usually prefer to shoot brass. WWB (Winchester White Box) works for me, every now and then you will get a bent case, (usually pretty easy to spot) but other than that WWB has been pretty reliable.

If you don't believe there is an ammo shortage go to your local Walmart and see if they have ANY pistol caliber ANY brand, then go to the next closest Walmart and check again, by this time you will be saying to yourself "This is crazy!"

There was a time not long ago when I would say the WWB is good and cheap.

you're right, yesterday I did just that. i'm in west florida and I could not find a walmart that had ammo for me. and there is a lot of them here. but I did end up going to my lgs and getting those wwb youre talking about, I think. the box is white and all it says is the cal and 165gr, is that them?

I only shoot brass so Blazer and American Eagle are two self-defense handgun range loads I consistently (used to, anyway) find on the Internet that are priced the best.

For .22lr I like the Federal 550-round bulk pack for cost and reliability and the CCI Mini-Mag, Stinger, and Velocitor for quality and reliability in the premium rounds.

I'd go to WalMart to check it out over in WLEB NH, but my car is being buried in snow.

Picked up 1000 rounds of Miwall 9mm 124 gr FMJ reloads at Costa Mesa gun show yesterday for 360.00 and it was the last box they had.
Anyone have any input on the Miwall reloads?
