    So I just picked up a P22 and a G19 for myself for my 21st birthday, and I have absolutely no clue what ammo to get for the G19. I don't want the cheapest stuff, but I don't necessarily need the stuff that will take a person down in the least number of shots. I'm just plinking with it, its not for defense or anything. :dunno:

    Winchester White Box 100 packs go for about $11.50 at wal-mart. I have a thread on here about 9mm ammo. The winchester is pretty much the cheapest stuff to target shoot with, and is pretty decent.

    Winchester white box or UMC is the cheapest most easy to find in stores

    CCI Blazer is the cheapest I've found for just plinking ammo. $3.86 for a box of 50. I've shot probably 600+ and along with a friend we've put over 1000 down range w/o a problem.

    Instead of WWB from Wal Mart, go to Academy if you have one in your area. They have 50 round bulk packs of Q4172 Win which is a hotter load. Your Glock will like it, and it's not any more expensive.

    What exactly is Walmart White Box? I was at a Walmart today and they had ammo, but I didn't see any white box stuff?
     
  13. :hsugh:

    winchester white box.

    its called a "100 round value pack"

    the real name is "Winchester American" or something like that..

    but its in a white box.. therefore, winchester white box.

    Wal-Mart is cheaper than any place I've looked online for 9mm ammo.

    Academy has boxes of 50 Winchester for like $4.8? and 50 CCI Blazer for $3.86. And a friend called and I think he said they had 250 round boxes of UMC for $27.

    I got a case of CCI Blazer + 6 boxes in the closet ready to be shot.

    All the ranges in my area force you to shoot ammo bought at the range only and then they rip you off on the price. So I only shoot at Markham Park which is owned by the county.

    Thats some bullshit, I wouldnt shoot at any of them either, indoor range I goto doesnt even sell Ammo, outdoor range theres a guy with a table setup selling ammo sometimes but you dont have to buy his. Only sort of ammo restrictions in indoor range doesnt allow fmj rifle rounds.

    All the ranges in my county got together and all made agreements with the other ranges you must buy range ammo... it's like price fixing. I've gotta drive 45 minutes south to Markham Park anytime I want to shoot because of it, but I don't mind since that's the only 100 yard range nearby.
