Hi folks,

Is there a cheaper source for 9mm ammo than the 100 round value packs of Winchester at Wal-Mart for $10?

I spent $50 the other night and managed to get through 200 rounds in around 30 minutes :)

Either start reloading or learn to shoot slower.

Ammoman, a sponsor here, has good prices.

The machine on the right is a good source of inexpensive 9mm ammo.

They just banned the Wolf brand ammo at my range, I'm not sure why....

Reloading sounds interesting :) Once the equipment has been purchased what does the average per round cost work out at?

In my totally cheating method I can do 1000 9mm using existing brass, my own cast/lubed slugs for under $35.

Ironically it costs about the same for 1000 45acp.

This is critical when you have SMG's to feed. (see sig line)

Please say that was sarcasm. If it wasn't, it's for the best your range doesn't allow it; the steel casings are rough on your gun, particularly the extractor.

You can get 1,000 rounds of value ammo in brass such as Winchester White Box, PMC, etc. for very reasonable prices. The mentioned Ammoman is a good source, as is CheaperThanDirt.com. But shop around, you never know which site has a surplus of of something and cuts the price on some plinking ammo. In any case, 9mm is by far the easiest caliber to get a good deal on, after .22LR.
