Just a heads up, SGammo has 9mm HST 124gr in standard and +P in stock. Ain’t cheap, but they have some.
As best as I can tell, in the current market (mid 2021) any major brand SD pistol ammunition (in stock) is going to run $1.60 - $2.00 a round by the time shipping and taxes are paid.If you think you need a particular hollowpoint bad enough to pay $2 a shot, you have been reading too much mall ninja BS about ammo on the internet.
Emphatically NO! I don't think there is that big of difference between "super ammo" and ball. I used to see maybe a twenty-five cent difference - no way in hell is there a ~ $1.50 difference. If I have to, I'll live with Blazer (alum case) 115 gr. ball at ~ .35 a round.I see it's a 20 round box for $39.95. If you had no ammo, would you buy it?
