Hey everyone!

Hey! I'm a new member from Florida. Just bought my first handgun (S&W MP 9mm). Just trying to find out how to get cheaper ammo for going to the range. Thanks

Welcome from Oregon. check www.ammoseek.com for those ammo prices. Figure postage into that price.

:welcome:

Wally-world for cheap 9mm. Federal aluminum cased or Winchester steel cased 9mm is the cheapest good ammo around that I found. I don't shoot Tula except through the AK. They have steel jacketed rounds that is harsher on the barrel lands than brass or copper jackets that Fed & Win uses.

Hi from NJ!
Buds Gun Shop sells brass FMJ 115 grain in multiple brands for usually under $.20/round. I tend to prefer Blazer Brass, Federal American Eagle, and Fiocchi--but that's me.

Hello from Las Vegas - and welcome to the forum.

I have found some good deals at bulkammo.com but frankly, my LGS does pretty well too. I do like the Fiocchi ammo. A good compromise for range ammo.

Welcome! I always check gunbot (http://www.gunbot.net/) for good deals. I prefer to use re manufactured ammunition bought in bulk for range use. At this point, I avoid Freedom Munitions as they are going through bankruptcy reorganization and I have heard that the quality has slipped.

Howdy and :welcome: from Oregon from another looner. :wave:

I look for sales online and take advantage of free shipping offers. Ammoseek.com is a good place to start.
