WWB and Remington UMC are about as cheap as it gets in my experience. As someone else has stated, I've had bullets seated too deep with a super crimp, I've had bullets that weren't crimped tight enough that came out when loading the magazine or fell down into the case and I've opened boxes and found either cases with splits or creases.

I've had none of the above mentioned issues with Wolf steel case, and the Wolf is cheaper. The fact that it's steel cased doesn't bother me. It is, IMO, better ammo for target practice than WWB and UMC.

I will say that I've been less than pleased with Tula though. The primers are very hard, and I've had quite a few FTEs with it when I don't get them with anything else.

Cheap Russian ammo wont break your guns at all. I shot thousands of it with my Glocks & DD Ar15. The only downside is only dirtier. Just my 2c.

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
$26 for 100 rds ain't bad. Look at cheaperthandirt.com if anyone can beat that price it will be them.

I usually get my ammo online from sgammo.com, luckygunner.com or sportsmanguide.com.
I buy them by bulk (1000 rounds). At the end with shipping, each round costs less than 20c.

I shoot Tulammo from Walmart quite a bit for the range. Competition is either Atlanta Arms 147 gr or Fiochi 158 gr (when I can find it).

You won't find ammo any cheaper then right here. Good, quality, CLEAN, reliable shooting ammo.

www.theammoguy.com

Good guy with good prices. I put the link up everytime I see someone start one of these threads.

I have looked at every one of the sites posted above and their 40% more.

Reloaded ammo? I never tried reloaded ammo and wont. I kinda worry in safety reasons. No offense though.

Cheap ammo is not the way to go for accuracy, but the way to go if all you want to do is blast away.

Cheap ammo can interfere with practice. Misfires (good to learn firearm clearing), hang-fires (lets you know what it is like to fire black powder), squibs (can explode barrels if not cleared), and duds (live fire turned to dry fire with a dangerous snap cap), and failures to eject (when the paint on the casings gets too hot and hangs the round in the chamber).

Not all cheap ammo will do this, but expect something to happen.
