Do you prefer Cheap OR Quality Ammo - (FOR PRACTICE)

  • Cheap (Not as consistent. some risk, and more wear and tear on your investment but...costs less)

What are your thoughts on the quality of practice ammo that is available to us civilians? (of course, spend quality on defense) I continue to hear stories of some scary experiences with the cheap easily available rounds from the well-known brands. Everyone seems to be so fixated on where to buy the bulk cheapest practice ammo but this seems almost out of ignorance. I have been recently spending 25% more money on the reputable quality ammo for both consistency and safety. There are some really good small business ammo out there that bring a night and day feel and results; but do people care?

Would like your thoughts!

Agreed! For a long time I never cared - But the more I learned it actually scares the hell out of me what's out there. But yea on the practice side of things, if you want to get better you want ammo that will shoot how you expect it to shoot. Otherwise with the inconsistencies your'e not adjusting getting an accurate "zero" or getting any better.

not sure i agree.. just shooting regardless of accuracy of ammo is the most important.its about stabilizing your aim (at least for me) so regardless of
where the round hits your stabilization will continue to improve.if your zeroing a weapon then get premium grade

not sure how price of ammo is considered ignorance or that putting premium on a box means that it is.but ok.. ive shot remans that have out performed major brands.
as far as safety goes theres no "guarantee" put to much faith anything it will surely let you down.you can bank on that.do your homework on any ammo your buying
dont trust what a box says.while most do seem to be better some are surely not your paying more for a word.
