I’m often asked which load for any particular cartridge would be good cheap “range” or “practice” ammo? There are so many potential problems with this question that I could literally write a book on the subject, but for now, this short article will have to do.

I practice with ammo I carry in the gun, not with some sort of cheaper “range” ammo that will have a different muzzle blast, recoil impulse, point of impact, etc., than my carry ammo. When the “chips are down”, I have no desire to pull the trigger with ammo I have not been practicing with. I do not want any surprises when that moment of truth (when people’s lives are on the line) arrives, so I practice with ammo that I carry in the gun, not different ammo…….by doing this, nothing changes under stress and there are no surprises, at least not from the gun/ammo combination I’m using. Last but not least, by practicing with ammo I carry, I do not have to re-sight the gun in after every time I practice with different ammo.

The only exception to the above paragraph would be when I am initially breaking in a new pistol. Some pistols require at least 400-500 rounds of break-in to become reliable. Match pistols require double that break in number due to their ultra-tight tolerances. While some types of pistols (like Glocks) require less break-in to function reliably, still, I put at least a few hundred rounds and often more rounds through a new gun. For this chore, I will use some cheap range ammo, (However, never gun show re-loads assembled by some person I do not know) but as soon as the gun is broken in, I’ll sight in my gun with and start using my intended carry load for practice. If I am going to shoot anyone or any animal to save the lives of others, it will be done with ammo that I have practiced with, a lot.

Good shooting and God bless,

Friends and Customers, 08-18-20


All shooters are being inconvenienced with what is happening to our society and the rush it is causing on ammo supplies. We have LOTS of ammo in stock and are making more at a huge volume on a daily basis. If our web site allows you to order any item, that means it is in stock—WE DO NOT TAKE ORDERS FOR ITEMS WE DO NOT HAVE! So, please do not email and ask if items are in stock. If they aren’t, the shopping cart will not take your order.

We have hundreds of customers to get orders to on a daily basis. In order for us to accomplish this for our customers, we ask the following.

  1. Be sure of what you are ordering. You are going to get what you ordered.

  2. Do not contact us and ask to change an order you’ve already placed. When we manually change orders it requires a lot of time that we do not have during this rush and it keeps us from serving all of our customers. If you’d like to change an order, we can no longer do that till things slow down, so simply place another order for more product, but PLEASE, NO MORE CHANGES after the fact!

  3. We NEVER have and never will take ammo exchanges or returns and then turn around and re-sale that ammo to unsuspecting customers as factory new ammo—this is not safe nor is it fair to customers who are buying what they think is new and safe ammo. No ammo is tamper proof! So please stop asking to exchange or get a refund for ammo you ordered, but have changed your mind about.

  4. Please do not contact us and ask for tracking numbers or “when will my ammo ship”? Our system automatically emails out tracking numbers on the orders we ship each day, however, because these emails are coming from a corporation shopping cart, many of these emails may go to your spam folder……..please look there. If it is not in your spam folder, that means we have not yet shipped. At current order rates, we are shipping within 5-7 business days of the time an internet order is placed. Please sit tight. Your ammo will arrive at the same time if you track it or not and will certainly arrive later if we are swamped answering questions instead of getting orders shipped. When 30-50 people per day send emails asking for tracking information and we have to pull that information up, then type it out and email it, it takes a huge portion of our work day that we should be using to ship those orders to customers in need. Please leave us alone so we can serve all of you. (ship to you) It’s a bit selfish, during times of shortages, when so many folks need to protect their families, to slow us down because you ordered carelessly or want to change your order. Right now, we expect you to do your part to help us all get the ammo we need in our troubled country.

These measures are hopefully temporary and will not be needed for long as we enjoy the interaction with our customers, so please, for the time being, be mindful of all those others who are also trying to get ammo during what I think is a societal meltdown/emergency. Hopefully, we can serve you all. We want you and your families to be armed and safe and we wish you the best during these trying times. My biggest concern is that things will worsen yet more, for a while. Until things straighten out in our government and society, we will have to streamline our customer service in order to serve all customers. Thank you for your understanding.

Good shooting and God bless,
