|We gonna get some |
oojima in this house!
The bullets are plated. That's a no no with ported barrels. It doesn't matter if the slide is ported or not. That being said, I know of people that shoot plated through ported barrels.
I just bought 200 rounds of aluminum Federal to try. I notice that loaded ammo has come down a bit more than components. Not really worth it for me to reload 9mm for the time being.
TCB all the time...
Last week I bought a 100 rd box of Federal 9mm FMJ aluminum case ammo at Walmart for $17.46. It's not just the brass casing that has gone down in price. WWB seemed to have gone down too.
Like jhe888, I remember c. 2006 I used to go to Academy regularly to buy 50 rd boxes of Blazer 9mm aluminum for $3.99/box and WWB brass for $4.99. I bet I still have some old receipts hidden somewhere to prove it. The entire market changed when Obama became the DNC presidential candidate in late 2007.
Shot a 100 rds of the Federal brass today. It really shot well and seemed a little hotter than some of the other range ammo out there. It shot great in my M&P 9c and Sid P320. Grouping was pretty good with both guns.
Are you certain? Box allegedly says "FMJ," which implies (J)acketed.

Suggest you check out SGammo! I think you'll be happy with some of their deals. Made me happy.
Totally agreed! We're officially old.
I also remember it at $4 and change per box of 50.
Like gasoline prices, it's two steps forward and one backward. Funny how we think it's a steal at $2.50/gal now - just like we think it's a steal at $10/50rd box now.
In 2005 at Walmart 100 round packs of WWB was $10.53 for 9mm and $19.97 for .45 acp......the good old days.
