I predict you will need to re-order soon. My GP100 is one of my favorite plinking handguns. I had the same issue regarding the wide variety of ammo available for this handgun. I now have about six different types to choose from when i go shoot.

I'm pretty sure your right, I went and rented the Gp100 last night at my local gun shop and I went through 100 rounds in a half hour, and another 100 rounds through a Ruger Mk III in a half hour. I'm sure I will be going through a lot of ammo that's why I'm looking for resonable priced practice ammo that I can shoot the hell out of and not drain my savings. There is only one thing I don't like about handguns. (Long version) When I was 13 years old I got hit in the left eye with a BB that made me loss that eye, so now when I look down the sights of a handgun either I can focus on the sight and the target is a little blurry or I can focus on the target and the sight is a little blurry. And last night I was hitting to the left of the bullseye even when it looked like I was dead center. I know it will be reletivly easy to sight my gun in when I own it and can adjust it to the way I shoot, but after about 15 rounds I would just aim a little to the right and I was damn close.

fupuk A few more dollars on ammo and shipping would ahave been free or are you in there central sone. Anyhow You should be happy with there ammo Hey If you find a monsom mass. made dan wesson 15-2 revolver in nice shap ,size it up. Might be the best shooting revolver you could ever fine and you can change from a 2" barrel to a 3,5,8, or longer in about 2 minutes. Check out dan wesson forums . Might run in to one down the road one day.

Yah I could have bought more ammo, but I don't know how good the ammo is so I didn't order "to much" if I like the ammo I will order more, if not I will run through the georgia arms ammo and try something new..

One good thing about revolvers versus semi-automatics is that the revolvers are GENERALLY more tolerant of ammo differences. The lil Ruger MKIII probably would be a regular jammer with bulk pack ammo, unless you find the brand it likes, but the GP100 should fire about any .38 special or .357 magnum ammo that is commercially available. My favorite for plinking is some inexpensive .38 special +P by Winchester or some common brand.

I have been luckier than many with semi-autos and haveing no feeding or fireing issues. Except for one 1911 back about 35 years ago and I finally gave up and sold it. I have some 38+P for one 357 dan wesson for my wife or girls to shoot. None of my girls really like the hot 357mag loads. Just started loading again for my youngest girl to have some extra mild loads for prctice. 148gr wc at 680fps out of a charter arms ultra lite. I'll still buy GA for me. Cost almost to darn close anymore unless you something special.

Default Fiocchi

I looked online and have found Fiocchi .357mag 142gr FMJ, 500 rounds for $155.99. Anyone fired this round? is it dependable, good ammo? I understand that a revolver is more forgiving and will shoot a variety of ammo, but i dont want to just shoot junk and have to worry about damaging my revolver. i would rather buy something that works well. Thanks for the advise everyone..

Its still just FMJ bullet. If you want to practice with a magnum load thats no good for anything other than practice go ahead and get some. Its good ammo, You will have to work hard to hurt a ruger. Maybe a steady diet of buffalo bores maxed out stuff. I do doubt you will wnat to shoot hundreds of rounds of magnum BUT never know. Stay away from winchester right now and check your ammo as you load up. Save your brass. You can get into some basic reloading by the time you shoot up all the georgia arms stuff and fiocchi stuff if you buy some.

I have 35 years of shooting my dan wesson 357 and still practice with 28sp. Scrub out the crud from the c ylibder and finish off with 20 to 40 rounds of the 357 hot stuff.

For 357mag hp ammo lurk around and find the best deal on the green box remington hollow point ammo from 125gr for defence to 158gr for hunting or trail defence. Desent ammo that can be found at a ok price. Check wallmart for what they might have. OR any other box store you might have around. Geargia arms does have some good hunting/ defence ammo also just hard to order smaller amounts because of shipping cost. Hecks thats high from any of them. I tend to buy a 1000 rounds at a time in several calibers to skip the shipping charge buy wooow the cash out lay.

Check to see who shows up at your area gunshows that are smaller commercial ammo companies that you might be able to deal with . Check Black Hills remanufacterd ammo and new ammo , good stuff and darn sure closer to you than GA. PMC is another company that has lower cost new ammo.

Cabeles has .357 brass ammo from Herters at a decent price. I have used the hollow point and it is OK. They now have $5 shipping on orders over $150.
