Because right now at sgammo.com,

PMC Bronze 9MM 115gr is $399.00/case with free shipping

and PMC Bronze .40 S&W 180gr is $379.00/case with free shipping.

Isn't life interesting? Smile

Ammo has been all over the place... show up and look for the deal, not the caliber.

Locally,
9mm is 19.99
They HAD some .40 for 16.49

Pretty much because of the internet keyboard commandos that are telling everyone that it’s “a for shit caliber” because of its “snappy” recoil Roll Eyes …it’s a 100% viable and usable caliber…people compare it to 9MM…I just think it would better to compare it to a .45 ACP light…I for one don’t want to be the receiving end of it…if you don’t reload for it I’m glad to see on the shelves when other “mainstream” calibers are hard to find in this bullshit time we have been thrust into Roll Eyes

It's a hoot to shoot out of my blown out old 2nd gen Glock 22.

The .40 is fine.

Fine either way, I have a 9mm conversion kit for my .40 Shield.

And to me I really didn’t notice that much difference between the calibers at least with that gun.

"Some things are apparent. Where government moves in, community retreats, civil society disintegrates and our ability to control our own destiny atrophies. The result is: families under siege; war in the streets; unapologetic expropriation of property; the precipitous decline of the rule of law; the rapid rise of corruption; the loss of civility and the triumph of deceit. The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible."

Same here…just to keep all bases covered “in the event of” I’ve got a Lone Wolf Alphawolf 9MM conversion barrel for my G27 coming in on Friday…like an idiot I purchased a BCA G26 9MM barrel (inexpensive) to swap out with the .40 barrel…some say it will swap out without issue, some say it won’t…I will give it to my cousin for his G26 for him to use with his cast bullets…I feel better using a dedicated barrel listed as a “conversion” barrel rather than taking a chance…if I reloaded for .357 SIG I would also add a conversion barrel for it.

Thanks for the link. I'm going to pick up some 180gr. As for .40, I feel like an alpha shooting my heavy a$$ Sig P229.
