In another thread y'all know that I'm getting a G21 (Friday, due to the virus).
I have been looking around on the interweb for 45 ACP ammo. If any of the ammo companies have it in stock it's very expensive, which I knew this already. What really gets me is the shipping costs. The lowest price I have found was at UNDERWOOD AMMO, $7.95 flat rate. What I really want for SD is the Winchester 230 gr. Ranger T-Series ammo. The bullet expands to over an inch with those nasty talons!
Any advice as where I can get practice ammo (FMJ) and a good JHP for SD.
Thank You!

In your area of the country, Academy or Walmart is going to have the best prices on 45 ACP. And yes 230gr or 185gr adds up when you start shipping it, no way around that.

Walmart stopped selling pistol ammunition and Academy is out of stock (as are most retailers these days).

BOF - I know that you have a penchant for Winchester Ranger T, but you should really expand your horizons and try other brands--Federal HST, Hornady Critical Defense, Speer Gold Dot, and Winchester PDX1 as examples. All of these are equal to or greater than Ranger T.

Look into Gorilla ammo for self defense loads.

I believe they are still in stock too

I just ordered from GA Arms and highly recommend. Ordered 4/16 and received 4/20. $20 shipping on my order so it helps to place a decent size order or split an order with a buddy.

If you have that much self defense ammo then why not just buy some target ammo and go shoot the gun. Not a good time to try and find cheap available self defense ammo with what's going on with ammo hoarding.

He might not have any SD ammo in .45 ACP. It's like oil, just pick a nice name brand ammo. You can parse the minutia of the SD ammo but they'll all get the job done.

You might want to start with a small order of the self defense stuff. I dont think the 21 is picky but I have seen guns that are normally reliable balk at some hollow point or flat nose. Get lots of practice ammo and a box each of several defense rounds just to be sure before you place a big order.

Not just prime. Buy a certain number of boxes and it’s free. Usually enough for 500 or 1000.

You picked a bad time to try to get stocked up on a new caliber.

That said, SGA has .45 in stock, both FMJs and JHPs: https://www.sgammo.com/catalog/pistol-ammo-sale/45-auto-acp-ammo?sort=round_low
