SGAMMO.com has IMI M193 for $0.34 a round and M855 for $.37.

Federal HST 147 Grain 9mm for $26.95 a box of 50.

If you prefer Gold Dots in your 9mm they have 124 grainers for $23.95 for 50.

And for you 22 folks they have 500 round bricks of SK Standard Plus 22 LR for $59.50. My 10/22 loves this stuff.

I'm not sure what my 10/22 loves, but it likes just about everything. Big Grin

Best .22 ever.

I'd quit shooting before I'd pay 60 bucks for a box of 500.....


I stocked up, back when it was $8.96 for 550 packs of Federal at Walmart.....

I've still got a dozen or so....

The 10/22 is nice - but the carbine is too short for guy like me, with ape arms....

My dad never liked 'em - till we got him the full size rifle in stainless/walnut for his birthday...... He likes it now...

I can remember cheap 22 lr for less than $.02 a round a decade plus ago. These days it is the cheapest it has been since Sandy Hook at around $.09 for the bargain brands. I'm perfectly happy paying $.12 a round for something that'll shoot sub half MOA groups in my squirrel gun. With a standard deviation of +/- 10% or more the Federal value packs at Wally World just won't go there.

(17-12-2015 03:44 PM)Popeyes Pappy Wrote:  So I'm in the market for another single stack subcompact 9mm. I've already got a Ruger LC9. It runs well, shoots straight and has fairly good ergonomics, but the tolerances are so loose the slide literally rattles in the frame. You can hear it rattle when I walk even in a very snug holster designed for the gun.

I've got the choices narrowed down to Glock G43, Springfield XDs 3.3 or a Smith & Wesson M&P Shield. They all get good reviews from most. The Shield is the least expensive, but I haven't been able to handle one because no one around her has any. I can take home a G43 or XDs for the same cost. Anybody got one? Thoughts?

Sig Sauer P938. It is well-made and accurate.

I ended up with the G43.

Been seriously thinking about picking up a Browning 1911-380 for Karen to use. A double stack 9 is to big for her hands. A single stack one kicks to hard for her. I'm hoping the 85% scale 1911 in 380 will work for her...

Uh huh....

I shot bullseye on my old bosses team -- and he gave me a buncha shit about me using Federal and my Ruger MK II --- told me I'd have nothing but problems.....

I didn't have a single alibi --- (no misfeeds or misfires) all season --- he had 3 with his hi dollar Walther and Ely ammo.......

And the Ruger would bench under 1/2 inch at 50 ft --- far better than I can shoot offhand.....

...

If I need to split hairs at 100 yards, I don't mess around with 22 lr.....

RE: The gun thread. Enthusiasts only.
Biker if you're happy with the Federal bulk then more power to you. I'm not. At least not in my home built $900 10/22. I want the rifle to be better than I am. That way if I miss I know where the problem is. I get more consistent groups and far fewer misfires using the SK Standard Plus than I do with the Federal bulk. Misfires and inconsistent pressures are a fact of life with rimfire ammunition. I'm sure I'm not telling you anything you don't already know but priming a rimfire case is a lot harder than priming a centerfire with a separate primer. You drop a wet pellet of priming compound into the case, put a pin on top of it, then spin the case at high velocity to force the primer into the rim. The primer doesn't always spread evenly so the process leads to inconsistent results, but no one has figured out a better way to do it economically. The best way to mitigate the issue is quality control during the manufacturing process. That is the biggest difference between a company's cheap bulk ammo and their match ammo. Match ammo has more QA checks performed and more of it is rejected. That kind of QA cost money so match ammo cost more than the bulk stuff that gets dumped in a box and sold to Wally World without any checks. The bottom line is that if bulk 22 ammo was as good as the expensive stuff the people using the $5000 plus Bleiker rifles to compete would be shooting it instead of the Eley and Lapua that practically every shoots at the competitive level.

On that scale and caliber, I have a Sig P230. I prefer Sig's no safety/decocker SA/DA to the 1911 pattern.
I don't feel as safe with a 'cocked and locked' carry gun.
