decent yet inexpensive .45ACP ammo?

I am looking to buy a case of .45ACP that is decent but inexpensive. No gun shows around here as far as i know, so it would need to be ordered online.

Its a SHTF stockpile, more than anything.

Any brand/source suggestions?

What do you consider inexpensive?

About the cheapest .45ACP ammo I've found is CCI Blazers and Wolf. Some don't like chambering steel...but it sends a projectile downrange.

Wolf ammo works great in my Glocks, and it`s always cheaper than Blazer. I even use it in match competition where they don`t let you pickup your brass.

Of course it did....

But some $$$$1911$$$$$ or other shooters, for that matter, are about as bad as ARFies and Wolf ammo. This statement wasn't meant to include Paveman into that kind of fray.

I don't want to spend name brand pricing, even Winchester white box stuff is getting $$$. Something a little less money but not bad enough to be inconsistent or corrode the bbl badly.

I don't care about policing brass and I don't reload. As long as it kills zombies and covers the above issues, I am interested.

Magtech stuff is okay on a budget. Kind of dirty stuff but decent performance and the brass is decent if you reload. Can be found around $16/50rds locally. White box Win is worth the extra $5 imo.

I like the Wolf stuff myself. Mine run it fine and I figure the steel aint hurting a thing.

Same for me. I'm just basically using it until I get a good stockpile of brass and a reloading press.

No one there had ANYTHING that was cheaper then the WWB at my local walmart.

My 1911 is sometimes picky with the WWB, but it runs like a raped date on Blazer ammo. The prices here in Florida are comprable to y'alls prices everywhere else.

Winchester 100 rd. box is around $25 up in New England, with 9mm running somewhere around $17, and .40 cal somewhere near $22. Cheapest stuff by far, and my glock just chews the stuff up.
