I finally found a range close to where i live that is reasonably priced. Only catch (beside the fact that they're closed in the summer because its indoors and they don't have AC) is that they say "no jacketed rounds"



I'm new to shooting but I've never heard of this...



anyway, I've almost always purchased the WWB 115 grain FMJ 9mm rounds from wal*mart.



what should I buy now?



I don't want to spend a ton of money but I don't want to gunk up my gun, ruin my bore or worry about duds.



any recommendations?

The sum total of the posts in this thread so far: they either want you to shoot only lead, only frangible, or maybe plated.
Your best bet is to contact them and ask for sure.



If I had to guess, I'd go with sholling ... there is a range near my in-laws that is like this. Very old, nothing but bullseye shooters from "back in the day." No ventilation, but lead unjacketed bullets only. I visited once and left before firing a shot. (the range, not the in-laws ... though I've restrained myself from firing any shots there as well
)


sounds like you described this place to a T. it looks like a cabin from a summer camp built in 1930. Unventelated and one of the rules is "bulls-eye style targets only" -- i stopped by on Saturday to check it out. there was no one shooting but the range officer was there. Nice guy - had to have been about 75+ years old. kept going on about his glacoma surgery.



its not my ideal environment but the only other place open to the public is a 30+ minute drive and charges $20 an hour (where as this place is a 5 minute drive and charges $7/hour)



(sounds like described my in-laws house pretty well too. LOL!!!)
