    Hey guys, quick question. Is there much of a difference in brand ammo for range use? I shoot .40 cal and wal-mart usually has Federal ammo for $14 a box. Dicks around here usually has Remington and Blazer for $17-20. Any real difference for range use?

    For self-defense I have Remington Golden Sabers.

    Thanks for the input guys.

    For target shooting I would just use the cheapest stuff you can find.

    And the Federal stuff works pretty good in my experience.

    IMO...I'd use a quality, target ammo, on the high end for whatever caliber your shooting. WWB, Fed American Eagle, Remington, they're all good and 99% reliable. I personally like Corbon FMJs for the range. For one, it's probably the most accurate target ammo you can get...match grade. And yes, you'll pay more for it. Secondly, Starline brass....one of the best the reloaders say. So, pick up your spent casings and make the reloaders happy with a good price.
