Practice 9mm Ammo Recommendations?

Sponsored Links
Hi fellow PPQ lovers,

I just bought a 1st edition and cannot wait to take it to the range. I am a first time owner and not very familiar with the different ammo, but read reviews and for carrying when I get my CCW and for home protection I decided to go with HST 124gr or 147gr. Everything I read points that they are really good if not the best.
My question is what would you recommend as FMJ for practice, that would have the best high quality/low price ratio?
I know that I am gonna get what I pay for, but I am sure that there are better and worse lower priced options.

Thank you for your help!

Vlad

Any sort of 115 gr FMJ will do just fine for targets and plinking.

Try gun-deals.com and ammoseek to find the cheapest deals. Generally speaking, local gun stores have terrible prices on ammo.

If you trust the Russian, lacquer-coated steel case stuff - like Tul and Brown Bear - you can probably find 115 gr FMJ for about 17-18 cents a round. Otherwise, if you want brass-cased, it'll probably be 20-21 cents a round. I've used Remington UMC, Winchester white box, and some Federal, and they all seem to work ok.

I've just actually ordered a case of 1,000 from reliantammo.com and am looking forward to putting it through its paces.

Cheapest around here (CT) is Federal Champion at walmart. $19.something for a box of 100. Even with tax it is usually cheaper than internet deals with shipping. Just bought 5 boxes for $106. The WWB there is $23.

Cabelas sometimes has deals on Sellier & Bellot with free shipping.

If you shoot at a range which does not allow jacketed rounds, I have found only one possibility. The Heters (Cabelas house brand) TNJ as S&W strongly recommends not using unjacketed lead. The nylon jacketing of the TNJ rounds, though, should pass muster. I've used it and it works just fine. Note, the casings are aluminum. Periodically Cabelas puts it on sale for $9.99 per 50 in 9mm.

Interesting...the Wally Worlds in my area (Northern IL) have the Federal Champion, but only in boxes of 50, for around $14 a box, which is definitely not cheap.

I picked up 2 boxes of the Winchester white box 115 grain 100 round ammo for $23.97 each at Walmart in Connecticut. The 50 count was $13-something.
