If you want to shoot it often and affordably.......reload. Graf & Sons, MidwayUSA are a couple of good supply centers for you.

i have been looking into reloading myself, unfortunately i will have to go the cheap route with lee precision. anyone care to share any experiences of their equipment ?

You can find more info, in the reloading forum, but their single stage presses arent bad. I have a couple sets of their dies and havent had any problems. If you are going to buy a progressive press, everything I have read points in the direction of the Dillon 550B.

Nice choice. I have always been a fan of Springfield 1911 pistols. the ones I have had ate just about anything. I liked to shoot the 230 g bullets. The lower grans obviously have more velocity but made the pistol a little more snappy IMO.

This question belongs in reloading forum and there are plenty of Lee reloaders that can help you. If on budget look at a Lee Progressive Turret press. Mine's been converted to single stage. I'm loading well over 20,000 rounds a year with it now.

What little factory ammo I use is Blazer and Winchester 100 round value packs. 230 grain.

Will get some up when I make it back home on Tuesday. Thanks for the suggestions.

for target ammo I would say ball ammo, where ever you can find it.

Im happy that a springfield loaded followed you home but you should know the rules by now..........pics or its a lie.

Factory ammo is starting to show up again...but reloading is a good idea...for Self defense-HST,Win RangerT,Buffalo bore185gr+p should do

Thanks. Need to be sure not to put the "idiot scratch" on it as well as pickup some extra mag's.

Suggestions on mag's?

How about these 8 rounders from AIM for 13.95/each.

Check in this forum, but IIRC, reviews thus far on those have been....not exactly stellar. There seem to be some significant bugs in those mags still. For the moment, I'd say give them a miss in favor of a proven mag like McCormick, Check-Mate, Wilson, Tripp, etc.
