    Hey guys,

    My wife and I will likely be taking some defensive pistol training classes, so I'd like to pick up a 1000 rounds of 9mm for our Sig P365s. Any recommendations on what to get and where to get it?

    Thanks for your time.

    What are you using for carry ammo? I'd try to mirror that a bit...124g->124g. I'd also stick with any decent brass cased FMJ.

    That's what I carry in mine so I bought a bunch of Federal 147g FMJ for the range.

    Edit: With the current situation, finding bulk 9mm in stock (and many other calibers) isn't easy. TargetSportsUSA is usually my go to when it's in stock.

    I'll search around a bit...cheapest I can find is on bulkammo for $289 plus shipping is almost $340. Seems a bit steep?

    Yes, that's steep but in these times finding a good deal on bulk 9mm may be tough. Keep an eye on your local Armslist, etc. and you may luck out with someone selling some locally. Otherwise, get what you can get (115g, 124g) to tide you over until you find what you want in bulk for a decent price.

    I have gone through the same search and came up with the same you have. The price you have is pretty much the going market rate now.

    9mm is at a premium right now, local stores are having a problem getting shipping due to the protesters. Don't know where you are at but a Sportsmens ware house had a limited stock. You might just call around in your AO first before ordering it on line. I'd also look for the 124 grain, and 115 grain.

    You might check first with the place you intend to take the course, as some require frangible ammo.

    My range ammo of choice for decades has been Winchester 115 FMJ “white box “ or USA or whatever version of their generic brass cased 115 fmj. I have always had good luck with it, and I use Hornady Critical defense 115 so they are compatible.

    If the place allows fmj, the Federal you linked should be ok as well.

    Welcome to GT!
    My favorite inexpensive but very decent import range ammo:
    GECO 115gr or 124gr FMJ
    Sellier&Bellot 115gr or 124gr FMJ
    PMC 115gr or 124gr FMJ
    MagTech 115gr or 124gr FMJ

    My favorite inexpensive but very decent US made range ammo:
    CCI Blazer 115gr or 124gr FMJ
    Federal Independence 115gr or 124gr FMJ
    Federal Champion 115gr or 124gr FMJ
    Fiocchi 115gr or 124gr FMJ
    A little bit more expensive, but Speer Lawman 115gr or 124gr FMJ is also pretty good.

    If you can find them, you should grab a case or two! They are very consistent and very much trouble free.

    I’ve been shooting Federal Champion aluminum and/or CCI Blazer aluminum in 9mm almost exclusively for many years. I’ve never found a gun that doesn’t run reliably and accurately on it.

    I like SGammo and Target Sports USA. I always try to buy only when I can get free shipping.

    With the current prices on 9mm I wouldn’t rule steel case ammo out. It’s usually a little dirtier but still functional for practice.

    I have a Glock 43, Sig P365, and Springfield Hellcat. The 115 grain ammo seems snappy in the recoil. I recommend going with 147 grain. It made shooting these micro compacts more tolerable for my wife.
