    Where do you folk buy your Ammo? I use alot of Blazer Brass .45. 11.00 a box at Walmart. I love it when I tell the clerk I would like to purchase a case of twenty boxes. The looks you get!!!! Usually have to wait 20 minutes to find the Clerk with the lone key to the display cabinet but for that price it is worth it.

    I used to buy alot @ gun shows, but anymore it's more expensive there versus Walmart. (even by the case) :embarassed:

    PS- I really like the CCI Brass ammo. I'm glad they finally came out w/ it.

    I buy mine online for my 460XVR due to the cost of a box being out of this world if I can find it around here. Online I can get some great prices such as $17.69 or so a box for a case purchase.

    That explains the screen name :wink:. I usually buy my rounds for the range at a gun show. For the 'real deal', home defense rounds, that I don't shoot up at the range, went ahead and bit the bullet, so to speak, and paid the price at Southern Firearms.

    I buy my rifle and hand gun ammo from Cabela's. Cabela's is cool because you get a free ammo can when you buy 500 rounds two cans when you buy 1000 rounds.

    We reload all of our centerfire ammo except for my main deer rifle in .270. Right after I built it I found it would shoot Hornady 130 grain custom ammo into .5 MOA groups and I have been to lazy and busy to work up a better load. Everything else we reload.
    I am guilty of picking up Winchester white box .45 ACP ammo to shoot out of my convertible .45 Colt/.45 ACP Blackhawk on occasion but even that has gone sky high.
    One of the best deals is to get a cross trainer in .22 rimfire. We have them for our main hunting rifles and pistols. For instance I picked up a Savage Mark II with heavy barrel for my son and outfitted it with a scope identical to his deer rifle. It is almost identical in weight and balance for cross training shooting off hand. Plus it is a LOT cheaper to shoot.
    We also have .22 hand guns similar to our hunting weapons.

    i get most of my ammo at wallyworld. it just keeps going up though. the most expensive gun i have to shoot is my .44 mag. the guy i bought it from gave me a couple boxes of hadloads when i got it from him, and they shoot so much better than factory loads. well i saw him again later and asked if i could buy some more rounds from him and he told me to come to the house. when i got there he gave me 500 loaded rounds and a box of 250 lswc in 240 grain. i tried and tried to pay him, but he wouldn't hear it. needless to say, i use those rounds very sparingly, as that's not a deal likely to come along again. he shoots .45 colt now, and doesn't shoot a .44 anymore. he hunts bears and mtn lions behind dogs, and the 7 1/2" bbl on the super blackhawk he sold me just gets in the way with all the climbing and running he does. works great for me though!

    I reload .38spl.
    Bought a bunch of once fired brass off ebay a few years ago
    for about 2 cents each. Got a bunch that haven't been touched
    since I cleaned them.
    Buy primers by the case.
    Bought a Lee 6 cavity 158 gr. swc mold and pour my own.

    I used the wrong powder in about 500 rounds and crimped
    the brass a bit to much. I tried pulling the bullets but break
    a bunch of boards.
    When we fire these rounds, all you hear is a click, the bullets hits
    the target and a large spray of powder comes out of the barrel.
    After a few shots the gun wants to jam. Then there is time at the
    range cleaning the gun.

    Jimmy, I never had to buy any .357 or .38 SPL brass. We would pick up once fired brass around caliche pits in our area of TX. They were everywhere. It was kind of a game back then with wife and I.... :cool2:
