Ammoman has 9mm for $119/1k, pretty good price if the ammo is any good. Anybody else use this stuff?

I've put about 3,000 rounds of that stuff through my Glock w/ no problems.

Thanks echo, I consider that a good endorsement, since that's exactly what I'll be shooting it through.

I tried 4 rounds of the Olympic 9mm in my Walther P99 which is not a tempermental handgun when it comes to ammo. It would not not eject the spent casings on all four rounds. That was all it took for me. I did not need to shoot any more.

I use this ammo for my MP5 SD. About 2K rounds--No problem yet.

Yeah, I bought about 250-rounds at a gun show; because they were such a "good deal". They only worked in my firearms that are able to shoot hard, european primers. Only my Glocks and my HK P7M8 were able to fire it. My other US pistols were unable to ignite the primer.

It sounds like they're quality control is hit and miss from what I hear on the Ammunition Forums, but I'm not experienced with the ammo personally. As long as they'd stand behind their product if it caused any problems I would shoot it through my Glock 17. But unless you prefer the 124 grain to the 115 grain the Wally World Value packs of 9mm are a great deal. I've never had any problems with them in the 450 rounds I've put through my Glock.

I don't know what part of FL you're in, but around here (Broward County) good luck finding it in that kind of quantity at Wal Mart. My time is valuable to me, and I'd rather not spend all day driving to 4 different Wal Marts, when I KNOW that between the 4 of them I won't come up with 1k rounds.

Shot about 1000 round of it thru my CZ85. No problems whatsoever. I heard bad things about Olympic's .223 Ammo, but that's hearsay. Try the Ammo forum. [;)]

Norm try the wally-worls at the corner of Griffin Rd. & Flamingo Dr. I've never seen them out of stock.
