Exclamation Cheap Range Ammo Survey

Think about what you have actually used and answer honestly about CHEAP range ammo. Should be interesting.

My favorite brand(s):


These will do in a pinch:


Totally unreliable:


I'd do better with these if I just threw them at the target:


Thanks!

When it comes to range ammo other then .22's I haven't shot anything but Freedom Munitions reloads in years.

Until I found out about Freedom Munitions I always watched for sales,at that time I would buy several boxes. I always liked Sig Ammo but really didnít care for Winchester white box, found it dirty.

Just got some Winchester with a coupon from Academy and a 25% MIR and free shipping. Plus I had a gift card from Christmas. I guess I'll be doing some cleaning.

I reload all my revolver practice ammo. But for my 9mms I get Federal Champion 115gr, FMJ ... $189.99 a case. No waiting, no shipping ... walk in and walk out with a case at the price of plated reloads.

When it's on sale or has rebates I jump on all the Sig Sauer ammo I can get my hands on. Truly the "good stuff". I'm saving my present stock for competition days coming this Summer.

I have also had real good success with Freedom Munitions and as many others have. But I've been trying to support my local guys and local economy.

I stay away from the Wolf and the other Euro brands that are just dirty, smoky and unreliable.

I'm with Chuck on this, along with Freedom Munitions and Georgia Arms is my go to range ammo.

Past year or two I've been forced (due to lack of availability) some Magtech ammo in .357 and 44spl and .44mag. It work ok BUT was DIRTY as crap.

.22lr ammo I buy what's on sale or use some of my stash.

I really haven’t had issues with any brass cased ammo. If I had to pick a favorite I’d probably say Federal American Eagle.

I mostly use Freedom Munitions and CCI Brass Blazer

I would never use Wolf steel cased ammo again (except for AK47)

The range I go to wonít even let you shoot that stuff on their range. They have a sign on the counter when you walk in.

I have a new friend who competes in USPSA and reloads. I think I'm going to ask him to show me his set up and let me pick his brain. I've read and watched videos on the subject, but it's always better to see it in person.
