    I reload, so I really don't know, but you can try these places:

    www.midwayusa.com
    www.cabelas.com
    www.cheaperthandirt.com

    Just stay away from non-jacketted bullets, steel cases (versus brass case), and dirty ammo (not bad, just means you need to clean your baby more often).

    Cheers!

    Oh, and Jimmy, another thought: nothing wrong with the UMC bulk (yellow box) except it is dirty ammo to fire, or the Winchester white box at Walmart!

    So I suppose I should introduce myself. I've been on the forum for a couple months now. Anyways... I'm from the "great" state of VA. I've been a Glock owner since I got out of the Navy in 2004. My first Glock was a gen 1 g17. I sold it to a collector and I kick myself in the butt every day for doing it. Then apparently I had some sort of brain fever because I bought 3 Taurus pistols. Nothing against Taurus, I like my pt1911. So next I bought a g21 and hated it. It was too big for my hands. So I went and got my g23c and have been carrying it since.

    Dirty means alot of unburnt powder gets into the action.

    More to clean...still shoots OK.
