These days, as long as you are buying from a reputable seller and not some guy at a gun show, there isn’t really a bad brand to get.I am an infrequent shooter. I shoot enough to keep my skills up to where I am safe, but not much more than that.
I have recently decided to begin building an ammo supply for the future, purchasing ammo each week in small amounts and storing it.
While browsing last night, I saw prices for a box of 45ACP from $17 to well over $30. Same kind of thing for 9mm, .308 and 5.56 (Different prices ranges of course).
I know that there are reasons for the higher priced ammo: accuracy, reliability, velocity, effectiveness, etc. But I am under the impression that these attributes, when it comes to general use, are essentially splitting hairs and the higher prices are for those who want the very best performance...the top 1% of performance, more of less. All I'm looking for is the hypothetical Zombie killing effectiveness.
So my question is, when it comes to ammo, where is the sweet spot between unreliable garbage and Match grade ammo that wins you prizes?
Addendum: I'm not necessary looking for where to buy, but what grade to buy.
I’ll tell you this…buy all your ammo from Sam at www.SGAmmo.com and you will be fine. They don’t sell garbage.
Buy cheapest stuff for range work and stacking for disasters, and JHP for carry, and you will be fine. All orders over $200 ship free and you’ll get it in a few days tops… Great business!
Local to you in Pflugerville is GT Distributors…anything they sell can be trusted as well.
