I used to buy plinking ammo at Wal-Mart because they had the cheapest prices around. After the latest price increase this past summer I started buying bulk ammo from surplusammo.com. In addition to the big name brands, they sell one called BVAC, which is based in Montana. I have shot several hundred rounds of BVAC 9mm for plinking and competition, with only one FTE. So far, I highly recommend them.
