    Tried searching the forum first, didn't see anyone else ask this question. Does anyone know of a place in the Portland area that sells 9mm mak ammo? I know online is always going to be the better deal, but I was hoping to try a few different brands through my new CZ 82 before buying in bulk. Thanks!

    I know you don't want to go online. But, FWIW, my CZ82 loves the cheap Brown Bear stuff. I got 10 boxes from AIM.

    AIM is by far the best price. Silver Bear is much cleaner burning than Brown Bear, for an extra buck a box, but both are reliable. Silver Bear usually cleans with one swab where Brown Bear takes some elbow grease. Gun Broker in Clackamas carries Fiocchi, Wholsale Sports on 82nd carries a few different varieties, and Kieths has a brand. Just be forewarned it's in the neighborhood of $20 a box as opposed to $10 through AIM.
