There seems to be no 9mm practice ammo available in the Midwest. I have my SD needs covered for now, and Hornady Critical Defense is on shelves everywhere around here, but WWB, American Eagle, PMC Bronze etc. are impossible to find. I find it real hard to practice with the Hornady at a cost of almost a buck a round. Where is everyone getting their ammo, if they can find it?

Try Georgia Arms.com. They sell at all the gun shows out here but also have a web site. 9mm FMJ 115 grain 500 rds $130 plus shipping. Plus it comes in a free ammo box.

It's been on the shelves at walmart pretty often in Ohio. I also reload 9mm so I am not buying much anymore. ;)

Things must be tight out there. My daughter needed new tires and the owner of the shop, who knew I was a shooter/reloader, asked her if I would be interested in a 5 gallon bucket of wheel-weights....in exchange for two boxes of 9mm's. Am I interested...yes sir-ree- bob , in a New York second. I told him to save the empties and I would reload them again.
I was having trouble finding wheel-weights for blood or money.

For anyone in the upper midwest, dakotas, Minnesota,Iowa or Wisconsin, Fleet farm has been stocking here and there, but when they have it, it goes quick. Fleet farm is a upper Midwest wholesale store, I like to call "The Man's Mall".

firefox you are correct, Fleet Farm does get 9mm in and it goes out just as fast as it comes in. Here in Iowa I have actually had better luck at Theisen's, which is a similar (but smaller) type of store. They do a great job of keeping Hornady 9mm on the shelves. However it seems to be a little more expensive than Fleet Farm. Not so much more that I wouldn't buy if I really needed it though.

9mm

Try wikiarms, gunbot, ammoseek, these are all search engines. Also here in pa we have a site paofa(pa firearms owners association) look at the ammo forum, under classified there is always some 9mm there for sale.

Gander Mountain has 350 rounds of 115Gr FMJ Blazer Brass in an ammo case for $119.00 here in TX

Saw 250 round bricks at Cabelas

Finding plenty of RN FMJ 115 gr bullets, but can't find any JHP bullets anywhere. Found a set of 9mm dies finally.

OldTexan can you find small pistol primers? That was my biggest problem but I was able to get my hands on 1100 of them recently.

Found WWB at Jax for 35$ per 100(!) and got some there but them Mills fleet farm had UMC for 14$ per 50. Strangely, Cabela's in Omaha has had no practice rounds in stock all summer. I've been going there every week and there is none to be had. On the plus side, reloading components are well stocked there. Picked up 500 FMJs and some powder recently. Time to get to the reloading bench and quit worrying about who has ammo in stock

Been able to score 400 rounds of FMJ practice ammo in the last few weeks. 200 WWB, 100 UMC, and 100 Magtech FMJ. Got 'em at LGS in Boone, Iowa, Jax in Ames, Iowa and Mills Fleet Farm in Ankeny. BTW anyone within driving distance of a Fleet Farm needs to go. Not just for ammo but for everything. The place just reeks of testosterone!

An LGS here near me has a decent stock on all calibers and had a decent supply on reloading supplies.

what part of the country are you in DBrown? If we post where we find ammo maybe other members nearby can find it too.
