My Kimbers seem to like American Eagle 230 gr FMJ quite a bit. Back before the panic it was pretty inexpensive. I think it's a little harder to find, but I think it's pretty decent stuff.

For last few years I've had good results with Miwall reloads ammo I buy in bulk (250 or 500 rounds) at large gun shows in Arizona. Miwall is a California ammo supplier who sells at gun shows only, usually at "Crossroads of the West" shows.

As always, YMMV.

I hand-load the ammo my wife and I shoot. As has been the case with factory ammunition over the past few years, sometimes reloading components have been hard to come by or have been significantly rationed. That situation seems to have eased up recently, however. Reloading saves me about 50% compared to the cost of factory ammo. I load my .45 ACP rounds using 230 grain FMJ bullets and 4.5 grains of Alliant Bullseye powder. That combination produces a good cartridge for practice at the range.

Ever since the shortage I've become less fussy, I've had good luck with reloads from Freedom Munitions. When they are available I will buy 500 - 1000 rounds at a time, they also offer a brass buy back program. Good .22LRs are still impossible to find, I haven't seen CCI mini mags for sale in well over a year.

I use CCI Stingers in my Beretta 21a, but Stingers are hard to find down here.
last find was a 500 round "brick" of Stingers for $55 and that was before the ammo rush.

Probably would cost double that today....:)

The shortage (absence, really) of CCI Mini Mags is the same here in NH. Even cheap .22LR ammo. is hard to find, even at Walmart. Dealers here say .22 ammo. is the least profitable for the manufacturers so they (the mfg.) have geared their production for the more profitable calibers. From a purely business point of view I suppose I can't blame them, but it leaves people like us who like to shoot .22 with no ammo.

Marshall, do you realize how old this thread is?

Son, you need either a part time job or another hobby besides resurrecting the dead to occupy your time.

It will give some of us a chance to read threads that were here long before we were without digging and help keep the ads moving. Win win right? :D

I've been using a lot of LAX Ammo reloads at the range for several years - 9mm in my Tactical Pro II and .45 ACP in my Custom II TLE.

Most reloads in 230 gr .45 from Georgia Arms. Good ammo at a very decent price. NEVER had a problem with this stuff. I also get in 9mm. I usually get it when there is gun show in town.

Anything that is on sale except reloads. Just picked up a sweet deal from Osage Guns and Target Sports usually has good deals and free shipping!

i use strictly 230gr Sellior & Bellot with all of my guns, runs great in .45 and 9mm. can usually catch a sale on a K at about $200 or less. This summer will be dedicated to just buying ammo, unless i find a smoker deal on a gun that i can flip quick. a K every 2 weeks of 9 and 45 should fill up the ammo only safe pretty quick.

Since this old thread seems to be staying current, I will get on the Chuck and Marshall train. Freedom Munitions is hard to beat, I use it almost exclusively, sometimes when we visit our friends in Villa Rica Georgia I stop by Georgia Arms plant and pick up 500 rounds of .45 or 9mm.

What do I use for practice?

Oh, the usual, pit-bulls running loose, evangelical barkers, lawn and weed spraying charlatans, anyone with a Hillary button, a Yugo (which I regard as a mercy killing), anyone who uses the term "social justice," and my Cousin Bobbie.

To save the good ammunition I use Freedom Munitions .45 ACP 'Hush' rounds.
