View Full Version : 9mm JHP for Bulk Buy?

I'm looking for recommendations for a decent 9mm JHP that I can purchase in bulk. I'm using Critical Defense in my carry pistols now, but at nearly a buck each I can't afford to buy the 500 or 1000 rounds that I want to stash away.

Does anybody have recommendations for something cheaper but still decent? Older-gen bullets, I assume, are going to be the order of the day and I'd prefer mid-weight, but really any weight would do for this emergency store I'm building.

Finally, can anybody help with sources to buy in bulk? I've only seen FMJ in big bulk packs - although I admittedly haven't looked very hard yet.

Though I am partial to golddots, the JHP http://www.sgammo.com/product/federal/50-round-box-9mm-federal-147-grain-hi-shok-jhp-hollow-point-9ms ....looks to be priced fair by the case, 50rd boxes. They have all sorts of 9mm ammo, but not sure what you are paying for critical defense ammo, but if it is any close to $18-20 a box for 25rds, then I would get some of his golddots for the $239/case for 50 rd boxes.

I have found Gold Dots and Ranger T's in bulk at great prices.

My next premium JHP self-defense ammo purchase for my 9mm will definitely be Speer 124-grain Gold Dot +P, which seems to be the default standard for this caliber. If it proves out then I won't mind paying a bit more for a round that's generally available online.

One round that definitely fits your description is the Federal 115-grain +P+ (9BPLE), and I've seen that priced as low as $16/box of 50 at online outlets. You can do a search of Glock Talk threads if you wish to learn how this round gained an excellent reputation. I've tested this round in my 9mm pistol and it's good to go. I carried 9BPLE until the weather turned cold, although I would have no worries carrying it year round. I have seriously thought about purchasing it in bulk but since the search for the very best available self-defense round hasn't ended yet for me I want to give the Gold Dot a try.

Yes...this above. ISP used it for 30 years with great success. Just because something isn't the latest and greatest bonded shoot through glass and doors wonder round, doesn't erase 3 decades of proven performance. These, Winchester Rangers in 115-124-127 +P flavors, and the 115gr/125gr CorBon loads have all been doing famously for 25-30 years.

Thanks for the ideas everyone! Definitely going to check out sgammo.com.

I'm not crazy about the idea of +P+ because I want something that will work in all sizes of pistol, including my little Kahrs. I'm not crazy about the idea of putting +P+ in my CM9 at 14 oz. ETA: The CM9 actually isn't rated for +P+.

If that's the case then resist the urge to fire any +P+ through that pistol. Safeguarding the integrity of your carry piece is way more important than trying wring out the last drop of velocity or power from ammo.

Georgia Arms sells some good "new" ammo using Gold Dot bullets in bulk. I've had good luck with their reloaded stuff in the past.

I would just keep an eye on websites that often have excellent prices like SGAmmo, Ammunition To Go and Cheaper Than Dirt. In addition, you can use ammoseek.com and search for prices (but their website was down when I tried it earlier today).

The standard pressure version of 9bple (9bp) also has a great track record over 25-30 years and can be found pretty cheap online. Cheaper than dirt and ammunition to go usually have it in stock.

Yeah, it's looking like this will be my best choice. I think I can get it for about 29 cents per thousand.

This is what I was thinking was the standard in 9mm, as in works in all of them and works period.

I personally just buy the 100 round packs of Remington HP at Wal-mart whenever they get them in as they are only slightly more expensive than ball.

I've built up a stash of over 1,000 rounds in both 9mm and 40 S&W over the course of a couple years, though I could have done it faster. Performance of the bullet is decent and it's cheap enough that you can afford to practice with it, be sure your gun is reliable, and build a stock.

If you don't think the Remington HP bullet is good enough, fine. This is simply an option for you to consider.

OP-I have purchased a couple of times from Mike at MAH Supplies. Highly recommended.

I don't buy JHPs in bulk. Just get what I like and pay the price for premium ammo.
