    Walmart white box is the cheapest I've seen that wasn't steel cased.

    I try not to shot steel-cased ammo very much. I don't know if it is good or bad for anything really, but I like having brass to reload afterward.

    When I had my G17 I must of put well over 5k steel cased rounds through it with no ill effects, Walther has a fair amount through it too. My helwan broke while shooting wolf though :mamoru:

    So is there a good place to purchase bulk 9mm online? I've seen a couple spots for 170-180 per 1k, but I can buy it at Wal-mart for that.

    a couple of places online have it forfor 1000 for 139$ or 1440 for $199, which makes it 13.xx per 100/rounds but after shipping it'll be 16.xx per 100 and thats the same price as walmart.

    the cheapest i've seen is wolf at midwayusa but its the same price as if you were to buy 10 boxes at walmart of the wwb. i'd get the wwb if i were looking to buy some

    That's exactly what I'm saying. It's hard to beat the price that walmart has. Specially since you get it immediately instead of waiting for shipping. If they could ship it to me for 130ish then OK, but until then I'll take my business to a retail store :dunno:

    i like blazer aluminum cased from natchezss.com, its probably about a wash with walmarts price after tax but its way cleaner and i dont have to dick around trying to get someone to hand me ammo from behind the counter

    For 9mm you are going to get much cheaper than the walmart WWB at least reliably (maybe a sale or two) but the prices that are close you do have to look at the quality of the ammo. WWB tends to be very dirty, though I've never had it foul a gun to the point it was unusable (200-300 rounds in a sitting max)
