    Does anyone have advice on where to buy 45 GAP ammo for target practice? I have found some online (Speer) for $33/box of 50 plus $10 shipping (10 boxes).

    Thanks for any info.

    Check all your local shops. Some may have some dusty boxes in back from their original order. All my local shops struggled to get rid of it and never ordered more.

    18.50 per 50
    or 36.50 per 100

    I know it says they are out of stock.
    But they had pleny of it at thelast gun show 3 weeks ago.
    I'd call them and see if they have enough for a small order.

    Agree. Ga Arms seems like a good source for lots of stuff.

    Be forewarned. I ordered a Canned Heat 45GAP deal listed as in stock on
    their websight and was told it would be 3-6 "MONTHS" before it would ship.
    I wound up cancelling my order, I live 2 hours away from them
    and they
    wouldn't let me drive there and pick it up to expedite the process.
     
  6. Most GAP shooters are reloaders as common availability of GAP is abysmal.

    Loaded ammo has been so hard to find I just bought 5,500 rounds
    of once fired brass to do just that. I'm hoping/assuming I can use my
    friends 45acp dies to do the job. Any tips/hints before I jump in head first?:supergrin:
     
  8. Yeah... go over to the reloading forum here on GT:
    http://www.glocktalk.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=26

    I personally don't load GAP, but folks on "Reloading" and "GSSF" do.

    Reloading components right now are as tough to find as factory ammo; primers in particular. Wait times for bullets, powder and even presses have increased exponentially.

    In NJ and includes shipping. Not the cheapest but it will get you by. When things first started ratcheting up, ACP was gone and you could find GAP ammo. But that is tough too now. Keep looking, you'll find it.

    Reloading is the way to go. I don't shoot my G37 as much as I like and still have a few hundred rounds left. I kept all my brass. My ultimate goal is to develop a load that uses the same powder charge that I am using for 9mm. It will be a light target load but real convenient at the reloading bench. I am certain it can be done
     
  12. The same powder charge? As in same powder and weight? Can't imagine any accuracy coming out of that.

    You must not be using a progressive press.

    Well, shipping isn't the reason it will take 3-6 months.

    Maybe not, but that was the reason the customer support person gave on the phone. It was still showing several cans in stock and after waiting a month and seeing my order complete, but not shipped I asked WTF. That was the answer he gave as their were several in line who had ordered before me and it would be 3-6 months before my name would move far enough up to get shipped. Since I wasn't there I really don't know what the problem was, but I cancelled my order, they lost a sale and Underwood and Lucky Gunner got a split order which both filled and had in my hands in less than 4 days. I just love competition and free enterprise.
