    I just checked gun-deals, and they barely have any .45 deals.. Everything seems to amount to... ordering from dick's or walmart.

    If .45 is such a popular round, where do all the beginners get theirs? or is reloading that much cheaper compared to buying in-store?

    on a side note.. what should I feed my hk45c?

    georgia arms has been good stuff as far as i can tell. I have shot their 223, 308, and 45 fmjs.

    for practice, if im not loading,the winchester white box (100) at walmart. bout 29 cents a shot last time i checked, been a while though.

    you gotta just try different stuff and see what the gun likes; it must feed reliably or it is pretty much a paper weight.

    forget places like Dick's or Gander - Gander just raised their price on Remington UMC bulk packs by over 10 dollars from last week - for the same stock.....

    try Graf and sons - they pay the shipping on everything except shotgun target shelss

    I've bought a bunch of Georgia Arms "Canned Heat" (bulk re-manufactured rounds using once-fired brass). Now that I reload, I save the brass as I shoot. Good ammo and good brass - what's not to like about that?

    Check out Natchez Shooters Supply. They are good reliable folks, with decent prices. I just got a delivery from Georgia Arms tonight (.45 acp). What was interesting about this, besides the two weeks it took to get here because of the post-election panic buying, is that when I placed my order for 1,000 rounds 230gr, the price was $280. Today it is listed as $340.

    I'll be sure to remember those suppliers jacking up their prices simply because of some irrational fear among some of us.

    It's not unethical, it's Econ 100 and a solid business practice. An economist would argue that the efficiency and benefit of supply-demand pricing is that the people who really want or need a good will be able to get it. Prices will go up until people quit consuming it faster than it can be produced at which point the shortage is ended. Then if someone really needs it, they'll be able to get it, albeit the price may be $500 for a case of .45.

    I can usually find WWB at Walmart or other sporting goods stores, but for carry ammo, I buy (just bought) a bit of HST in both .45 and 9mm from Ammunition-to-Go.
    I thought their pricing has been pretty good, but expect it to go nuts day by day as the Obamanation casts a cloud over the 2nd Amendment.

    Shop and basement.

    Most of my ammo comes from this little red contraption in my basement. Thank heavens for reloading presses with ammo prices through the roof lately.

    Once in a while I buy a case or two of ammo to both use and save brass for reloading.

    All my CCW ammo is factory Federal HydraShok.

    X2. Why I still buy some 9MM once in a while, I make most of what I shoot, especially .45 ACP and .45 Colt.

    This red metal beast beside me. I dump cleaned cases, powder, primers in various chutes, stick in some bullets, and every pull of the handle ejects a shiny new .45acp round. Less than $5 a box of 50 right now, I can't believe factory .45acp is $15 a box of 50 and going up quickly still.

    I cast the bullets in the garage and reload them in the basement. About $5.00 per 100 :D
