Any suggestions on cheap target ammo?
 
Im new to handguns as I just purchased a Glock 19 approx. A month ago. I love my Glock by the way! Just wondering if you guys had any ideas/ places where you can buy some cheap ammo for target shooting. I currently get my ammo at walmart. Its about $26 for 100 rounds of winchester 9mm 115 grain fmj at walmart

Make damn sure you check every round you put in your mag. I primarily use wwb but stopped using it in 9mm. Always have a couple of bad rounds per box where the bullet gets seated too far in the casing and puts a big crimp in it. Didn't catch it and got stuck in my bbl of my G17 and was a b$#ch to get out! I now just buy the 50 rnd boxes of federal and ends up being a tiny bit cheaper per 100 rnds vs WWB

I use wolf ammo for practising. Works great for my glocks. Cheap but dirty.

Winchester white box at wally world

Has anyone tried Remington 9mm?

My Walmart often has 100rd Federal 115gr 9mm for $20. Never had any problems in Lugers, P38s, Hi Powers and Taurus. Some say it's too weak to cycle the action but I've not seen that. Great for plinking.

$8.75 a box is tough to beat! Of course, it's always shipping costs that kill the price. If four or five people can get together and get a case each, it seriously mitigates the shipping by spreading it across several orders.

It would be nice to see a truck dropping of 10 or so cases of ammo in front of my door and the gossip from the neighbors = Priceless!

If you want to shoot steel case,wally world also carries tulammo now. 9.99 for 9mm

I've put 300 rounds of Winchester white box target ammo through my new G27 no issues at all. I'd rather pay a couple dollars more for a good name brand target ammo that some cheap ammo as my Glock is worth more than the few dollars saved with cheap ammo.
