Range/target Ammo

Hey guys. I'm a couple days away from taking the Micro Carry Sapphire 380 ACP to the range for the first time. I was wondering what kind of AFFORDABLE target ammo the Kimber Micro prefers. The local hunting shop was low for the holidays and only had Sig Sauer Elite Performance Ammunition 100 gr. Not that it's bad ammo, I just was hoping to get something more affordable online. Thanks in advance!

I broke my Kimber in with ammunition from Freedom Munitions. Additional information can be gleaned from notices posted by Chuck.

Oh, take it from me. When you get your new pistol, clean it thoroughly. Trust me...

Your best bet may be the one a lot of us use Freedom M.

My wife's Kimber Micro likes the American Eagle. It doesn't like the Blazer with the coating on the shells. It gets gooey...use lots of oil..grease the slide.

Someone had posted that Walmart carried ZQ1 for $10.99 per 50 that worked good in his Micro.
Checked my Walmart and they didn't have it though.
I have just ordered some American Eagle in 95 grn and think it was around $15 per 50.
I know there is cheaper ammo out there than this but don't know how well it will work in the Micro.
Federal Lawman did not work very well in our Micro.

Just checked the invoice from Midway USA and the American Eagle in .380 was on closeout at $16.31 per 50 and $14.29 per 50 in 9mm.

I just bought 500 rounds from his site. I also picked up 500 rounds for my S&W Shield since it was 10% off and the shipping was free. Thanks for the advice!

I'm not affiliated with Freedom Munitions in any way but after shooting 10's of thousands of rounds of the stuff without a problem I can highly recommend it.

If I had known that I would have bought all of the FM that I have, I would have bought stock in the company...

Very good ammo...IMO

I'm still working on finding my micro's favorite, of the six or so I've tried she likes the Fiocchi best. The Sig ran really well too though and seemed to be almost as clean.
... mind your grip, these little pistols don't have much recoil but what there is powers everything.
... have fun :-)
