I need to know where you get your ammo, I'm breaking the frikkin bank here feeding by 96FS!!

I heard that the CCI blazer ammo is good, and that they were coming out with brass cases soon, so it will be even cheaper, is this true?

I may just have to go and use WOLF, but I'd rather use less than 180 grain, to reduce wear on the slide.

But seriously, where can I get cheap ammo for this thang?

I've had bad luck with blazer. Very in-accurate. We have a local reloader that reloads 165gr .40 with fully jacketed FMJ for practice indoors. I get it for <$7.00 per 50 rounds. Good stuff, and has very similar ballistics to the golden saber I carry. I've shot almost 2000 rounds of the stuff and never had a misfire.

This is not exactly the answer to your question, but you may want to learn reloading ammo. It is a pretty simple process, and you will get your money back you spend on your equipment investment fairly quickly judging that you are shooting quite a bit. You can pickup 40S&W cases on the range floor, bullets will run about 13-15¢ in 100 quantities, 1-2¢ for the powder, 1.5¢ for the primer. So there you have it, you can handload your own ammo for roughly 20¢/round after your investment for equipment. You can cut your bullets costs in half by using plain lead bullets instead of jacketed one.

Yeah, there is no better deal than this going on anywhere. I pick up a box or two whenever they have them, they go fast and only seem to have a couple boxes in stock when I'm there. Probably have about 1k by now.

When I shoot pistolas, I go through quite a bit of .40s&w. I also get the aluminum-cased CCI Blazer (mail order through Natchez Shooter's Supplies) reeeal cheap ($6.15/box!). Never had a problem with it, even after a couple of thousand rounds. Accuracy is decent, too.

That's where I get mine. It's great plinking/practice ammo. You also get the wonderful "Wal Mart" experience.
