Hoping to get an M&P 9mm from Bud's when they get their next shipment in (overdue now) ...
Reading through the forum, it appears that Winchester White Box has presented some problems.
The best ammo buys I've seen in the threads worked out to around $0.17 or thereabout per round with orders of 1K rounds or greater.
Following the mantra, you should practice with what you intend to shoot, at least to a comfort level of accuracy and reliability, I wanted to find a JHP round that was inexpensive enough to practice with, but could do the job when it came to SD.
I've been looking at CheaperThanDirt and found the following Remington cartridges:
9mm 115-Gr JHP, 1135 fps, 100 Rds.
Item #: 34881
Our Low Price: $23.29
Remington - Mfr# L9MM1B
Being new to this, it sounds fairly reasonable at $0.23 per round ... Inexpensive enough to practice with for comfort, and a JHP round to boot.
Has anyone had any experience with this particular cartridge?
Are there any other recommendations for inexpensive 9mm rounds (practice & SD)?
Granted, I'd be hard pressed to spend $0.50 - 1.00 per round to practice with Hydras and other top-shelf cartridges on my meager budget.
Also, I was looking into the LaserLyte sub-compact and Quick Disconnect lasers, which can be had for about $115 and $85 respectively with a little bit of google price searching.
Does anyone have any experience with either? While the sub-compact is very low profile, I do like being able to quickly remove the laser from the rail ... perhaps to change batteries? I'd hate to have to dig out a tool to do so.
The LaserLyte discussion may get moved to another thread in a more appropriate category, but heck, I was on a roll, so I just kept typing!
Also, I'd really like to know if there are many Central Florida shooters over here. Please let me know. We're just starting out and would really like to have a few knowledgeable friends to say, "Hey, you're doing that wrong!" or "Here's a trick to make cleaning much easier!"
Thanks Much, Best Regards, and Happy Groupings!
