recommendation for .40S&W range ammo

I don't reload. I have a good supply of premium loads for my G27, but I am looking for an affordable round for practice. Stuff we used to call "blasting ammo". I see the bargain stuff is Tula and Wolf. Is there any known reliability problems using that ammo? My 27 functions perfectly with everything I've put through it so far.

I like Speer Lawman ammo for practice. It's ballistically identical to their Gold Dot ammo of the same weight. Ammo to Go has it for $15.95/50.

Standard FMJ stuff from Speer, CCI, Remington, Federal, Winchester, Independence, Magtech, Fiocchi, Sellier & Bellot, WOLF/WPA, Tulammo, RUAG/Ammotech's RWS, MFS etc. should all be fine.

I suggest that you buy a box or two of whatever brand you find and try it out. You'll probably find that one or two brands are more accurate and functions in your particular pistol better than others, or you may find that they all shoot about the same.

Stay with commercial factory loads and have fun experimenting with different brands and loadings. You may be suprised at what you find out about your pistol and different loads.

I have had very good results with Winchester 165 gr. FMJ, Federal Champion 180 gr. FMJ and Tula 180 gr. FMJ. I use any one of the three. They are all excellent.

Since you don't reload, I suggest you try some CCI Blazer Aluminum from Palmetto State Armory at $12.95/50.

I like the Remington 180gr JHP at Wal-Mart. Any 180gr or 165gr will work fine in my opinion for basic range use.
