LAX Ammunition for the more expensive calibers has been fine. (44 special and 44mag). I wait for sales and free shipping.

I read an article recently that made a distinction between "reloaded" and "remanufactured" ammunition. Admittedly it categorized "reloaded" in terms of lower bulk and perhaps not as high quality of preparation.

I used to buy from Georgia Arms and had not problems with their "Canned Heat".

I'm not sure this is an industry distinction.

When I buy "bulk" ammo, I get it from the cheapest source I can get. The ammo must be reliable (Federal Blazer, WW white box, etc.). I reload, so when I need replenishment brass, I buy bulk!

I have shot remanufactured from Georgia Arms without any issues - 9mm and 45ACP.

High capacity is not an acceptable substitute for good marksmanship.

Same here. Plus a crap-ton of .357 SIG.

I used to shoot Georgia Arms until they raised their prices, and stopped attending my local gunshow. I now buy from North Georgia Reloading, who always bring a crap-ton of ammo to the Orlando show, and have pretty good pricing. For stuff that they don't carry, I either buy factory ammo online, or purchase from Space Coast Bullets, who also has a lines of new, and factory reloaded ammo.

"All the citizens of this land are of right freemen; they owe no allegiance to any class and should recognize no task-masters. Under the chart of their liberties, under the law of high heaven, they are free and without shackles on their limbs nor mortgages upon the fruits of their brain or muscles; they bow down before no prince, potentate, or sovereign, nor kiss the royal robes of any crowned head; they render homage only to their God and should pay tribute only to their Government. Such at least is the spirit of our institutions, the character of our written national compact."

Those aren't necessarily synonymous. You can buy new ammo in bulk, i.e., a case (or more) at a time. As for the specific question of "remanufactured" ammo, IMO this is a euphemism for "reloaded," and besides not liking my intelligence insulted, I prefer to shoot new. If you shop around, the cost saving isn't that great.

+1 At the current prices it doesnt make sense to save 10 bucks per thousand (if that!)
