Where to get inexpensive 9mm ammo

Casting and reloading is another chapter in the book of guns and shooting sports. Not everyone has the time and patience for it. I have both. Also can make custom loads that you cannot buy. Shooting the walnut media loads at carpenter bees, shot shell loads for mr no shoulders and other vermin, double ball loads for my sd rounds in my snubbies, round ball loads for the 9mm revolvers, round ball loads in the 45 acp .The only limitation is your imagination and safety issues. Working up loads to fit the personality of a particular gun is fun and challenging. Since the inception of the hi-tec and powder coating of lead boolits , casting got simpler. What ever floats your boat and you enjoy is what you need to do. Ammunition is a commodity and the price will vary as the supply and demand cycle dictate. Some folks even reload the 22lr stuff.

An example of being able to do whatever you want with reloading. I wish I had the time.

We lost or best source of range ammo, Walmart. (That's what I read, but I haven't needed ammo in awhile, so I haven't been in there.)  But then Sportsman Warehouse opened and they are pretty close to Walmart prices. I have ordered ammo online, but its usually because of a really good special. Academy has good prices also, but I have to go to Smyrna for that, so I haven’t been there much.

Sportsman's Warehouse has amazing prices on just about anything shooting related I wish we had one in Knox/Blount County I wonder if some of the increase in ammo prices isn't from other vendors realizing they don't have to compete with Wally World anymore.

I have always been a fan of Sportsmans. Their reloading supplies are very reasonable.

The prices are cheaper 3 miles down the road at N. Ga Reloading. Not a lot cheaper but cheaper than SW.

From the comments here and friends who reload;

Hobby, Therapy, Volume shooter, Thrifty (not cheap!) or simply a personality that likes to have a hands-on approach with a soup-to-nuts process.

To me, it's also cool to be able to tailor rounds for application and specific firearms.

The largest volume all of my shooting is 9mm and I always buy brass pre-rolled.

Other than Wolf, I think I've shot every other brand-name flavor available.

Had an inconsistent experience with a 1000 rounds of Shoot Point Blanks' in-house brand, so I will continue to stay will known makers.

My experience has been paying $.22 - $.26 per 50 off the shelf and $.18 - $.20 per thousand online.

When reasonably easy, I do scavenge brass and pay it forward.

Does anybody see the Tulammo in 9mm anymore? I used to get it at Walmart but, they went a little Commie.

So in re-reading this thread let me just say....I don't care who has the cheapest 9mm. I don't need any.  

That is the joy of reloading.

I hear you. I keep saying I'm gonna buy 9mm dies. But, so far I've not got around to it. I don't cast so who makes the cheapest cast bullets.

I'm opportunistic. Look for sales etc. I have been a fan of Xtreme copper plated for a long time.

I have bought some stuff from N GA reloading and I have been to their new location. If you catch something used there it will be a pretty good deal, and I don’t know how but the get some used equipment. I think some things are cheaper at Sportsmans and some things are not.

      Been looking for one of these for two+ years. Finally found a Sig P220 Legion in .45 ACP and brought it home.

      I’m considering one. But, they seem to be scarce in the Nashville area. Are you happy with yours?

      I'm 18 and a new gun owner. As of now I have a pretty basic collection. One AR, one 870, a few .22s, the works. However, the obvious hurdle to owning a handgun is the federal restriction on purchasing a handgun from a licensed firearms dealer when you're under the age of 21. Buying a handgun from a private seller, however, is totally legal.
       Sadly, that limits my options dramatically. I can't have a gun from a listing shipped to me since that would require an ffl transfer, so I am limited to sellers in my area. Even then, most of the listings I've seen in my area explicitly demand a HCP, which, being under 21, I can not obtain. 
       I'm aware for many people this is to protect themselves in the event the buyer is a criminal, but this comes off as really hostile to any 18-20 year olds who want to exercise their gun rights. If I can buy an AR easily I fail to see why it should be so difficult for me.
