Hi everyone. I started competing recently with my Glock 17 Gen 5. I've got 2 IDPA matches under my belt, and will be competing in my first USPSA event this weekend. I've upgraded to Dawson sights and a Zev connector and have Talon grip tape on the way. I shoot in SSP/Production. I feel confident that this pistol can take me pretty far in the sport. One thing I'm not too sure about is ammunition. I know that most of the serious competitors are loading their own rounds, I'm guessing 147gr that barely make power factor. I don't want to start reloading yet, so that I can just focus on my shooting skills. Up until now I've just been using whatever cheap ammo I happen to get my hands on - usually Winchester USA Forged 115gr steel case or 115gr white box when I can get it. I can get that stuff locally for around $0.25/round if I wait in line in the morning for the store to open. When I take my time, I can shoot zero-down/alpha from most distances, so I don't think pure accuracy is a problem with this ammo. But obviously less recoil and better accuracy when shooting fast are desirable. Do you all think that just going with the cheap ammo is best for a novice competitor like myself? I don't mind paying more for quality ammo for competitions if it will help my performance, but I don't know if I'm at a skill level where it will make much difference.
