    What are you're opinions on the best cheapest ammo to buy for target shooting with a G22?

    I guess what I'm asking is, what are you using that isn't crap but not expensive either?

    Is it really getting that bad? Is ammo running short?

    I don't know if "best" is a good descriptor of this ammo, but the Russian / Communist-bloc made TULA, RWS and Wolf really aren't that bad. Steel case and can't be reloaded. Some folks think the steel case prematurely wears the extractor (but the cost of that part vs. the savings on ammo is negligable, IMO...) and these rounds seem just a bit "snappier" than other rounds. That might be subjective but the ammo is OK, IMO.

    I just wouldn't use a steady diet of it. But at $9-15 a box of 50 (depends on caliber) it is good for target and range use.

    So is steel better than the brass rounds? For wear or in general?

    or is brass better than steel?

    Blazer aluminum and my new favorite Remington UMC value packs of 115 gr hollowpoints. Of course I haven't seen either in a couple of months. Or bullets or powder. I can get primers and even saw a few cases last weekend but no bullets or powder.

    I have shot WWB in a variety of calibers for years now and have been happy. That said, I will shoot what I can find and thus far I have been able to stay stocked with WWB.

    I have been using Miwall reloads for about 11 years - 9mm flavor - but i would use the .40 with no hesitation.

    Reasonable price, the hard part is getting it! The lines at the Gun Show are typically very long, and they sell out rapidly.

    They don't do web sales (to my knowledge) but have always been worth the wait in line!

    Check their site for the next appearance in your neighborhood:

    Hope that helps!

    Went to a local gun show yesterday. Ammo prices are ridiculous. Most are marked up 2-3 times what it was a couple months before Newtown shootings and all the hysteria started. I have been telling people to stock up years ago but most figured it would always be available. The law of supply and demand still works!

    I would say that if you can find a box of .40 for less than say $17 it probably is a good deal. Your Glock probably will function fine with about anything that you can find at this point.

    Same here. I'll shoot anything $25/50 rounds or less. If its more I don't shoot. Only exception is the expensive Speer GDHPs in my carry guns.

    Some people don't like the steel case stuff and I agree, I'd shoot it only if that's all I could get.
