I don't have a reloading press, and this one-box-at-a-time habit is getting expensive. Where is a good place to buy 1000 round bulk ammo, what is a good type to get for range use, and what should I expect to pay? Thanks.

The deals are hard to come by. I remember seeing 500 FMJ for $85 at gun shows all the time. No more. I have been using the white box at Wally World (gosh I hate Walmart) that are abot $20/hundred now. I remember when they were $15/hundred at Wally World. I do remember buying their entire stock last time I saw that - but it don't last forever :(

Pretty decent prices here
I know it's Wolf, but you did say plinking/range ammo.

Yeah, last time I was at the range, I saw a guy with an HK SOCOM Tactical something or other...shooting wolf ammo. Had a case split or something and effectively freeze the slide to the barrel. Heard way to many horror stories about Wolf to feel comfortable running it in my guns.

Federal American Eagle 230gr. FMJ or 230gr. FMJ Blazer BRASS cased ammo. Or 100 round WWB 230gr. FMJ value packs at Wal-Mart. I use almost exclusively AE 230gr. FMJ for the range. I have NEVER had a SINGLE prioblem with this ammo. My guess is that I've shot in excess of 50,000 rounds.

What do you guys know of "Sellier & Bellot" ammo? I found a case of 1000 rds for $185 here:

I've had good results with MagTech ammo. Just don't get it wet.

I use SB in my AR and it is clean and consistent.
