Howdy,

Fixing to buy a new/used 9mm semi-auto, the first pistol I have had in many years. Although I am very familiar with rifle ammunition sources, I know little about where to get the best price on handgun ammunition.

I am interested in purchasing 1,000 rounds. Military ball or whatever is OK, since this ammo will only be used for plinking and practice.

TIA for ur help and assistance.

Happy trails,

JUMPER AKA Barry Ross

I'd suggest you get the gun first

try a few of the cheaper plinking loads out there such as Wolf, PMC, American Eagle and any others you may find. Find out which shoots best and buy 1000 of that brand. You don't want to get stuck with 1000 rounds that don't shoot, AND some of the "cheap" stuff is very dirty (WOLF) and may cause jamming and other issues. I'd try to find a nice, clean brand that shoots accurately and stick to it.

I'm a big fan of Natchez Shooting Sports.......

Hello Jumper,

I haven't bought any bulk ammo in the past year or so, but in the past I've always had good luck with Natchez. Their prices are great, shipping is fast and reasonably priced, and customer service is excellent. They will MAKE SURE you're 100% satisfied.

This link is to CCI's 9mm "Blazer" ammo which comes in aluminum cases that are NOT reloadable. Their price is $5.99/box of 50, and usually they'll knock off 10% when you order a case of 1,000 rounds. For about $1/box more you can get "Blazer Brass", which has reloadable cases. Both have shot well in my Glock nines and my Kimber 45. HTH.

I've had very good luck with Silver Bear ammo. I've shot thousands of rounds of it through my Bushmaster, and a couple 380's, and 9MM's. I've bought all mine from gun shows. The last 9MM I bought were about $120 per 1000 rounds if memory serves me right.

This is Russian ammo, and the cases are soft steel. I've had really good accuracy with it in all three calibers. It does burn just a little on the dirty side, but not bad.
