45 Ammo

I have several 45 handguns and I'm looking to buy some Ammo in bulk at least 500 rounds. Any suggestions on the type, grain, and source ?

I would use the Search button before starting new threads, as is customary around here.

That way, anyone who follows later can just go to that thread and get the old info, as well as the latest, and we do not have to give the same advice every time a new member asks.

hmmm

just depends on if ur looking for something specific, good range and accuracy and reliability on ur rounds, a breaking in of your gun, etc etc....

dont go doin what I did when I was younger, getting a box of hydroshocks and using them like regular rounds at the range, very stupid thing for me to do with high quality man killer rounds like that, lol, learn from my mistakes :P

I did a search and didn't find anything about this specific topic.

I haven't found anything worth shooting cheaper than the Walmarts white box. Anybody got anything cheaper on something decent? I really like the white box stuff.

Are you getting it from Walmarts or do you have a better deal and want to hook a Brother up?

NDD - Walmart is the best deal around Bragg. I haven't seen anything on-line that's enough better to make up for the S&H. (That's why I'm reloading! ) Good Luck!

Nope, Wal-Mart white box is getting to be all I shoot. Winchester white box, 100 rd boxes, 29 cents a round here in AZ.

I do carry a different flavor when I'm packing.

It is still a value, but like ammo cost, it has gone up too.

The Winchester value packs are a good deal. I was at Wally World yesterday. I checked on the prices. In the last 4 years it has pretty much doubled. Example 9mm was less than $9 for 100rds now close to $20. Not sure how the trend will continue, now so far has been the best time to buy ammo.

I was shooing white box & started reloading recently. I thought it would save some money, but after buying a Dillion press and all the goodies, it is going to take a while to break even...

This post is all most a month old but I wanted to add my 0.02.

I found Georgia Arms (http://georgia-arms.com/) who carries bulk ammo for sale.

Example of .45 ACP:

"Canned Heat" .45 ACP 230gr. Jacketed Hollow Point NEW 1000, Your Price: $360.00"

Has anyone used this manufacture? I am looking at a run for Christmas!

I've shot GA new and reloaded ammo in .223 Rem and .45 ACP and it seemed like good stuff to me. I still have around 500 rounds of .45 ACP FMJ and a couple bags of the 230gr. JHP. I usually picked it up at the local gunshows and have never ordered Canned Heat online. Very nice folks that worked their tables at the shows.
