    I've been using those 100 round remington 9mm for $20. what's the performance difference between a cheap bullet and higher quality one?

    Remington UMC is cheaper than WWB at the moment, and Dick's has it on sale for $6.93/50. I also prefer WWB for targets as well though.

    Are you referring to the actual bullet or the round itself?

    Unless you are doing some match rifle shooting. Buy as cheap as you can get them. I don't generally like running Wolf steel case ammo, plus I can't keep the brass. But they're all equally as good and bad. I stay away from other independent reloads. Only reloads I do are my own.

    I didn't care for WWB in my glock. Remington so far has worked the best for me in the cheap-end. I carry Federal Premiums and those shoot the best, but too spendy for regular range use.

    For plinking or practice, you don't need premium ammo. UMC, WWB, and other FMJ rounds are fine. I avoid Wolf and most surplus ammo because it's a little spottier in terms of quality. The only surplus I'll shoot is XM193 but that's because that stuff is top notch based on user reviews on AR15.com. So I guess the gist is, go cheap but not too cheap. And when it comes to defensive ammo, spend the money and get the good shit.
