Anyone have a line on inexpensive .44 mag ammo? I recently ordered a Super Blackhawk and I've been looking online at ammo prices. They seem to be all over the place.
I just ordered that very same today.44 Mag is also all over the place in terms of power and quality of projectiles. Some lower power cowboy lead ammo is not surprisingly cheaper than some full power jacketed soft point or hollow point ammo. What is it you are wanting to do with the gun? And what does "inexpensive" mean to you?
You mentioned looking online, so I'm sure you know about gunbot, ammoseek, slickguns, etc. In my experience, full power jacketed stuff is about 65-75 cents a round. To shoot cheaper than that, it will be lead/cowboy stuff or commercial reloads. Or you need to consider rolling your own.
FWIW, for a jacketed bullet: HSM .44 Mag 240 Grain FMJ-PFP 50 Rounds - 193440, .44 Remington Magnum Ammo at Sportsman's Guide
They have free shipping for labor day, the code is in the banner on the website. I've heard this ammo is sort of "soft" in terms of power, but have never used it.
.44 mag is also the reason I started reloading back in the 80's. If you scrounge and pour your own lead, you can still load them for around a dime or less.44 mag is the reason I started reloading. I realized how big a waste it was to not reload. You can develop a load exactly like you want and not rely on the gun store. My guns have not seen factory ammo for almost a decade now. I got into it with a $100 lee kit and a set of dies.
