    Brownell's has Fiocchi 115 gr 9mm on their website for $195 a case (1000 rds). 19.5 cents per round seems like a good price. Has anyone used this ammo.....decent shooting/clean?

    How about $169.80 shipped for that same ammo?
    Fiocchi Shooting Dynamics 9mm Luger 115 Grain FMJ

    Fiocchi makes good ammo.

    Fiocchi's fine but Targetsports usually has Blazer Brass for about 17 cents shipped.

    Blazer is a penny more than Fiocchi and S&B at the moment.

    Or you can go super cheap with Wolf steel for 14 cents if I recall.

    Blazer brass is piss weak, it works, but lacks the same level of punt in terms of working the gun as other stuff does.

    Target is awesome. I thank everyone here for turning me on to them a few months back. Best prices I've seen for MA and fast delivery.

    He'll correct me if I'm wrong but he is a reloader. Reloaders want brass, steel is either rarely used or saved for matches etc where pickup isn't possible.

    I used tons of Tulammo 9mm during Obamascare and SandyHookmaster BS scare, it was at least made of obtanium and worked well enough.

    The joke is that Andrew breaks all his guns.
    He can probably elaborate but if I recall I know of two, maybe three warranty send-ins he's had to do.

    Well, with reloading you can break guns faster, so there is that.... [rofl]

    I managed to actually bend the guide rod on my bowling pin gun with some of the loads I made... I honestly don't know how the hell that happened, either. I could never get it
    to do it again after I sanded the parts down a bit... [laugh]

    It is a fairly mild load that shot a bit low in my guns. Very good groups. Pleasant to shoot in a lightweight polymer gun.
