    Cheapest brass that works? 9mm Monarch brass from academy. It runs clean and I've never had an FTF.

    Yes, yes...I made a funny, but there is a great amount of truth to it. I buy ammo by comparing price per round. I just picked up 1000 rounds of JHPs in once fired brass by BVAC for a song...about $.23 per round. They work just as well as Speer gold dot. If it comes down to actually having to shoot someone, it won't matter what I spent on the bullet as long as it does not fail to fire.

    For practice both my Glocks eat everything I feed them. For defense I use Hornady Zombie Max (the same ammo as Hornady Critical Defense but in a cool box).

    Walmart is now selling in my area, North Mississippi and West TN, the burgundy 100rd box of Federal Champion for $19.95. Comes out to $.20 per round.

    For serious SD work, Federal HST's in 124 and 147 gr., for plinking just about anything will do.......

    I didn't think you were...I thought I should have qualified the funny.

    I like both the Glaser Safety Slug and the Winchester Silvertip for defensive work. For practice I normally shoot FMJ from Winchester or Fiocci.

    Practice ammo I buy the cheapest I can find. I usually try to buy at least 1000 to get the better deals. It usually comes out to cheapo steel-cased stuff but it puts holes in paper as good as any.

    Carry ammo, I use the Federal 147gr. HST Tactical. It's what our Dept. issues and after reviewing most every other 9mm ammo out there I'm very confident in carrying it daily in both my on & off duty firearms.

    I reload all my ammo except 12-gauge and .22LR.

    Best way to keep my hands busy while watching TV....

    For 9mm

    Glocks were designed for use with CIP spec ammo. To give you an idea, SAAMI +P, or so they call it has less pressure than standard CIP spec ammo. CIP has a pressure limit of 39,200 psi compared to SAAMIs so called+P limit of 38,500 psi.

    Any ammo marked +P will not even be near the pressures the Glocks are made for.

    Here is a snipit from my CIP loading manual. FWIW almost every CIP starting load is hotter than the SAAMI loads.

    +P aint going to hurt your gun in the slightest, infact it will be gentle on your Glock.....
