I wouldn't spend money on hollow points for practice ammo.

So assuming you're stockpiling a reserve in case you ever need them for "serious social shooting," any good premium ammo is as good as any other.

Speer Gold Dot, Remington Golden Sabre, Winchester Ranger or Silvertip, Hornady Critical Defense, Federal etc.

I would avoid their "economy" lines like Winchester USA (White Box", Remington UMC, and Federal's "cheapie" etc.

Buy whatever "premium" is on sale at the time. and it doesn't hurt to mix brands, as long as bullet weight and velocity are the same.

You can buy a reloader and all the supplies, assuming you have the brass, for under $500. If you have a reloader supplies alone for 1,000 230 gr JHP's would be under $200.

Remington in the green & gray box feeds and shoots reliably in my pistols. It is available at most Walmarts, Dunham's, etc.

Watch various websites, Cabela's, PSA, etc. for sales on Fiocchi, PMC, etc.

Best investment I've ever made. I have more ammo on hand now than ever before. If I have an hour or two to kill, I load. It adds up quick and in a SHTF situation, I'd be just as happy to be shooting JHP, FMJ, SWC, LRN, pretty much any round that works in the gun is good in that type of situation.

Buy whatever goes through your gun the best.

When I was young, I stocked up by buying one or two boxes every payday. It's amazing how fast it adds up!
