Does anyone have any experience with this ammo. I saw where AIM Surplus has it for $25 per 250 battlepack

Thanks in Advance,
Jason

I ordered a couple battlepacks, but haven't shot any yet. There's cute little 25-round boxes in the battlepacks.

STAY FAR AWAY! It is one of the very few rounds that my Uzi chokes on. IT has a real ugly bullet, too long, pointy and a bright gold color.

I have two thousand rounds that were made in 1999 and have fired 500rds so far through a Glock Model-17 without problem. 200rds through a Kel-Tec Carbine and 200rds through a Hi-Point Carbine without problem. Its very hot stuff and you have to watch because I heard some of the surplus on the market is steel cored.

Any way to know which is steel and which is lead??

Just run a stronger magnet and see if the actual projectile will stick to the magnet.

I've run 250 rounds of the 124 gr. JFP stuff through my CZ-75B. I had a couple of nose dives, but it was otherwise OK. A little dirty, but no more so than S&B.

This stuff is NOT steel jacket or steel case... at least the examples I've shot. I Checked with a magnet myself a while ago. This stuff seems to be drying up. I belive the only steel jacket 9mm that has been on the market recently was certain lots of the Danish FMJ from about 2 years ago--and that was a mistake on the BATFs part, as I belive that steel jacketed handgun ammo qualifies as AP, and is therefore not legal.

The Brown Bear and Silver Bear stuff has a steel jacket. You can buy it by the pallet load.

Its excellent ammo, I just placed an order for 1000 so I don't miss out. Wave had a battle pack and it shot real hot. Basically as hot as the +P Speer Gold Dot that we were also running.

The FMJ in the 250rd battle packs is really nice, but be carefull of the flat nose stuff.

The flat nose stuff costs more, why?

We are out now, but originally we thought it was Subsonic. The FMJ is great though
