    This is basically me. Once in a blue moon I'll buy a box from the range if I'm pressed for time and can't stop ahead of a practice session, but given they want like $13-14/box for 9mm and $17-18 for .40 (and it's usually Blazer steel at that), I try not to do that too often.

    That's actually what's got me looking to change platforms now. I bought my USP in .40 S&W when I was first starting out and before I knew much of anything about terminal balistics; these days I'd rather shoot 50% more 9mm and rely on proficiency rather than caliber.

    With 357 magnum I have to take what I can find or afford, with 45 acp it's usually WWB or Aguila.

    I'll just go with whoever has the best price on a case whenever I need it. Right now in the ammo closet is mostly Winchester for the .45, S&B for the 9mm, Blazer for the .38, and IMI for the 5.56.

    Yeah, buy from whatever store with the lowest final price on brass cased full power ammo and my guns eat anything I feed so far. Don't want to try steel cased ammo and the aluminum cased ammo is not that much of a saving to me.

    I reload so I can afford to shoot more.

    PMC 9mm 115gr FMJ or S&B 9mm 115gr FMJ-no problems with either.

    For my carbine, 62gr brown bear, I have 800 rounds left of it. I did get 1200 rounds of IMI M183 for the Vickers class later this year, just to reduce risk of anything slowing me down.

    For my precision upper, PPU 75gr

    For my 9mm, UMC/whatever walmart has cheapest

    That is how I do it. 9mm, 40, and 45 cost me less than $110 per thousand.
