Where to buy Ammo

New to the sport. Spending alot on ammo.

Wife is unsure about letting me reload. She is not crazy about the pistol shooting.

I understand that the PMP I am shoot has a power factor above 190. I am hoping to find something that is lower without breaking the bank.

Any suggestions and websites?

Try 500 rounds and see how you like their canned heat.

Georgia Arms is very good, and you can also try for IMI ammo.

Let me know if you decide to try reloading (the only true way to lower cost); I'll get you hooked up with on-the-cheap safe loading.......

The only way to go is convince your wife to let you reload. You can not buy factory ammo that is exactly what you want. I can reload 50rds of match grade ammo that is EAXCTLY what I want for about $3.50 and that is using all high quality componets. If you shoot a lot it does not take very long to to justify the cost of getting setup to reload.
I love 1911's
