    I recently bought a G30S and it's my first .45 so I'm about to stock up on ammo. I was curious as to what you fine people use for range and edc ammo and where you buy from (locally or bulk online).

    I like American Eagle target ammo and WWB ammo. Well priced and good quality. For personal defense I like Critical Defense ammo. All ammo I buy is local.

    I got a good deal on Blazer Brass 230 gr. from Target Sports. The also have free shipping if you order enough.
    If I want 1 or 200 rounds, WalMart, they've had Federal for a good price. I think it was $40 for a box of 100.

    Winchester white box at the range, Federal HST for carry.

    For range ammo, 230gr ball Sellier & Bellot, about $16 locally, combined with my reloads. EDC ammo, either 230gr Gold Dots or 230gr HST +P. Either will make a bad guy not want to play anymore.

    I bought a case of Winchester white box 230gr ball and thars my practice ammo .

    A good SD round that seems to work well in any barrel length is Remington Golden Sabers 230 gr standard pressure .. and they hit in same point of aim

    Anything for the range. Speer Gold dots across the board in all of my HD and CC guns

    I also carry Remmington Golden Sabers in my G30. In regards to range ammo, I typically use Federal (brass cased), magtech, or S&B.

    I don't have any glocks in .45, but I shoot Aguila for range and competition, and Gold Dot sub sonics for HD/CC. I always buy by the case, online.

    Thanks for the input. Overwhelming majority seems to be what I assumed to begin with. Keep em cheap on the range and find a defense round that blows a chunk.

    I shoot anything I can get my hands on. Premium carry ammo is Win Ranger T +p. Yes you can get it its just more expensive than other EDC ammo.

    For bulk ammo I usually buy from SGA or Freedom Munitions, have for years. I like to ccw Remington Golden Sabers and SGA almost always has that in stock.

    In both 9&45 I have been running the federal aluminum case from wal mart at around 10&15 per fifty respectively. Reliable accurate cheap

    Keep it on the cheap for putting holes in paper but if you plan on possibly putting holes in anything else as in SD rounds, the only thing I'll use in Speer Gold Dot.
