    Anyone have any reports or concerns about fiocchi 9mm 9ap ammo for a glock 19? I have about 500 rounds through my glock and so far only used federal from Walmart. However the walmarts inventory around here is spotty and my local gun shop has a good price on the Fiocchi but gives a great discount on buying it by the case. Any thoughts?

    I've found the Fiocchi brand to be adequate as range fodder...

    Not sure what your going to be paying at your LGS...but you may want to check Sportman's Guide

    they carry the same brand...

    Also Lucky Gunner...

    Need to look around a bit more but Lucky gunner seems to be the better of the two but only about $10 cheaper then LGS.

    Totals including tax & shipping:

    LGS 270.51 (1000 rounds)
    Luckgunner $ 261.56 (1000 rounds)

    Walmart would be $253.56 for federal if you could track down 20 boxes.

    I shoot a couple cases of the 115, 147 stuff through my G17, 34, and 17L before I started reloading. Onlt issue I have is from a reloading standpoint and their primer pockets aren't always a uniform size so you will get a bad primer seating in one every so often.

    From a factory load perspective, ran cleaner they average WWB, cycled the gun well, never and bad rounds, and reasonable accurate. I see it turn up at matches I RO alot in peoples range bags. I think it would be more common if the local dealers carried it cheaper.

    There are several threads about cheap ammo. I've been able to get 1000 ends if 9mm FMJ for just over $200 including shipping. Cheapthandirt and freedom ammo are two sources.

    picked up a case today @ LGS. Spent a few bucks more then online as stated above but chalked it up to supporting my LGS. :)
