I purchased some ammo from a local ammo manufacturer saturday (T's guns and ammo) www.tsgunsandammo.com and wanted to share the info and ask some questions! This ammo is new Winchester brass, 75gr hornady BTHP, primer unknown and 22.6 gr of unknown powder. The total cartridge length is 2.234. I paid $33.00 per 100 rounds. I went to my range and chrongraphed 10 rounds, then I shot 4 mags at 50 yds just to see how they would feed. As expected, I had no problems at all!

The Average is 2589.9 FPS

Question 1. Does anyone know what type of powder is being used by the pic?

Question 2. Is this to low of a velocity to be considered a self defence ammo?

Question 3. Does the price sound good?

Thanks in advance
