I don't know.....my old boss bought a few of us each a case of Sellior & Billet (sp) 9mm ammo a few years ago. It's cheaper ammo but it shoots fine. I think it's like $7 a box.
I still have like 3-400 rounds

I also bough a crap load (2000 rds) of WOLF 7.62x39 ammo from Cheaper Than Dirt last year.....it was REALLY cheap but shoots fine

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Personally, I dont think there is much of a difference. Some may be a little more dirty than others, maybe more or less accurate, but for plinking, I buy the WWB from Wally World.

Thanks!
Yeah.. it's going to be hard to find any ammo for a while. just bought a .40 and wanted ammo and had to go to 5 different places just to find someone that had hand gun ammo

I would stay away from Monarch which is sold at Academy. I bought some 9mm cause it was dirt cheap and let me tell you it sucks! It shoots poorly, made all my pistols I ran it through very dirty because it has a laquer coating on it, not to mention the nasty propellants that made me nuasious after firing! Stay far away from that crap.

Yes ...there are differences. It's been a while since I've shot anything, but I remember my husband buying different brands and trying to find the best he liked.

Some of the issues we found - were not loading properly in the mags, some made the gun a lot dirtier, and even some aren't as accurate.

You've gotta play with several brands and find out which ones you like...some just feel smoother than others.

Yes, there is a difference.

For plinking/practice, I shoot the cheapest FMJ I can find. Right now it's some steel cased ammo from Russia.

However when my gun goes on my hip I carry the best I can afford, which right now are some Federal HSTs in 147gr flavor.
