i use alot of lead ammo which is from ultramax, which is a bad idea in your glock unless you have an after market ss non polygonal rifled barrel, but it will be fine in your kimber.

blaser brass, is another good option too.

for the ar alot of folks are gonna say stay away form wolf and comm block ammo, ie steel case ammo, i shoot it in mine and i have no problems, to each his own.

Best bang for the buck...
Assuming you can find it...

Sellier and Bellot more commonly known as S&B. Made in Czech Republic. Usually a bit hotter than most US made factory stuff. About 75% the cost of US made ammo. Always goes bang. Accurate enough and reloadable.

Saving your fired cases and selling it to reloaders can reduce your cost a few dollars a box.

Better yet get into reloading and reduce your cost by about 40-50%.

The price of ammo is increasing at an exponential rate, you seem to have all the common calibers covered. I'm similar, in that I shoot primarily 9mm and .45, and some .223 also but the costs of going to the range can put me to the poor house if I over do it.

A .22 semi-auto pistol or rifle will go a LONG way. :D

For cheap ammo, Winchester White box value packs or Blazer Brass usually set the bar for cheap plinking ammo, usuall found at Wal-fart.
