Looking for the best case prices either locally or on-line (although shipping tends to eat any savings).

Bi-Mart looking real cheap right now.

The question would be for what kind?

Do you want high quality self-defense, reloads, factory plinking?

Practice ammo :) So I guess that qualifies as plinking.

For .40 I also use the HSN (Hunting Shack) reloads fo all my practice needs.

I just snag the 250 value packs of Remington UMC at Bi-Mart.

Wally World was 11.64 for 9mm 115g FMJ ($5.82/50) Winchester

Bi-Mart is $29.99 for 250 ($6.00/50) Remington

Wally Winchester .40 was $15.97/100 ($7.99/50) vs. $8.99/50 at Bi-Mart

Time to get a .22 for plinking -- any recommendations? :)

A couple places to keep an eye on for sales (after you check ammo man first of course) are www.natchezss.com and www.midwayusa.com.

If you want a cool looking .22 you could get a Walther P22 or Sig Mosquito. If you want solid, reliable, accurate shooting, I recommend a Ruger MK II. Just my opinion, of course.

Cool looking = CZ 75 Kadet.

Quality = Ruger Mk. II/III or Browning Buckmark.

You have any problems with that CZ?

Anyone else have feeding issues with the UMC value pack 9mm? My G19 eats it just fine, but my M11/9 jams on ever other round. Perhaps they are lighter loads?

Ruger 10/22, Ruger MkII or 22/45, Browning Buckmark

Bi-mart tends has great prices on 10/22's. They occasionally sell them below cost.

So far, the only problem I've had is 2 stovepipes with the cheap Remington Cyclones (it was jammin in Boo's as well). I also have one mag that doesn't like to hold the slide back when firing (manually it works).

Otherwise, no problems. And for me, it's almost as accurate as my Buckmark (and weighs more).

That Kadet was fooking cool.......ditto on the Cyclones...10/22 likes 'em....MkII says FU Boo, gimme something better.

"Remanufactured" = reloads?

Yes. Reloads. Once fired brass. I use their JHP 180gr for practice.

HSM isn't in Portland either. They're in Montana. (http://www.thehuntingshack.com/)

Surplus Ammo guys are the ones at the gunshows (aside from Mi-Wall) and come down from Tacoma area.

BTW, SurplusAmmo also has the Winchester Ranger ammo. I think they'll actually sell it to civvies.

What is special about this load? Haven't read anything on it or seen it recommended for personal defense -- is this maybe because it's LE only?
Link Posted: 12/29/2005 7:27:34 PM EDT
Went with the Sig Mosquito -- felt like a real semi-auto and only 24oz. All the target pistols seem to be in the 32oz and heavier.

The deal sealers was when the wife said "get the cool looking one".

Winchester Ranger is the ammo formerly known as black talons.

Yep. It's basically a revised Talon bullet. Sold only the LEO per Winchester's request after the last "cop killing armor piercing Teflon coated Black Talon BS".

This is the Talons expanded. Not like your typical JHP, the "talons" spread very far out and typically don't fold back.
