Sounds like buying "bottom of the pallet" WWB 9MM might be a problem. Some guys are having mis-fires. Wait till they get a fresh load in.

I had a few hit my head at the range, and it's every box I've shot too (3). Not really my thing to have hot brass hitting me when I'm trying to get into beast mode. Lol. :mad: But that doesn't stop a brother from firing, just keep on squeezing that trigger. :D I prefer Blazer Brass over the Winchester white box. I have a G19 Gen 3 btw.

Other ammo I've shot before (other than the two mention):
Fiocchi 124gr JHP
Hornady Zombie MAX 115gr Z-Max

GA. I buy from Georgia Arms, usually at local gun shows, SGAmmo.com, Adventure Outdoors and occasionally I'll buy from other gun show vendors or online vendors if I'm looking for something specific that I can't find somewhere else. IF I happen to be in a Wal-mart and they happen to have ammo that I'm in need of, I'll buy from them, but that hasn't happened in 18 months, maybe over 2 years.

But now its fleet farm. I just snagged 50 round boxes of Remington umc for $9.99 each, that's $.02 more than tulammo. And fleet has a variety of different ammo as well as hd ammo

For those who reload their ammo.

1) for home defense, do you have your ammo loaded? Or store bought ammo?

2) how much would you say tools run you?

3) how much would you say it saves you to reload your ammo?

@ThinkRicky:

I personally reload everything I can, including my SD ammo. I would also imagine that depending on where you live, the circumstances of the shooting, and the kind of lawyers you may face, that homemade SD ammo may become a focus in litigation following a defensive shooting. For that reason (and others) a lot of reloaders choose to purchse SD ammo instead of reload them.

My tools and equipment must have run to about $2,500 or so, definitely waaaaay less than $3,000, over the past 10 years or so, but just last year I made over $3,000 in terms of reloaded ammo sold (9mm, .38SPL, .40S&W and .45ACP) sold at the range, and that was only in one year.

How much you save on reloading depends on:

1. What caliber you are reloading (9mm is the cheapest, but the savings is the smallest)

2. What you reload (weight and type of bullet as well as muzzle velocities attained)

There have been several threads on here about cost analysis for reloading versus buying factory-made or buying in bulk.

Hope that helps.

Cheers!

Walmart - bride works there. We get a 10% further discount. Tried a couple on-line / mail order sellers but freight was more than lower ammo prices.

Very sweet deal. its been a few days and I need to get out.
I went early Sunday morning because I wanted first dibs. It's sorta hard to find 9mm ammo at a decent price up here.
