    Has anyone used USA AMMO JHPs?

    Hey guys,

    Recently I've been using USA AMMO (Pistol and Rifle Ammo) FMJs for my 9mm and my .40 SW. They sell JHPs for a pretty decent price, and I was wondering if anyone has used them? Thinking they might be good for SHTF JHP ammo.

    Let me know your thoughts.

    I test-fired them into phone books. They don't have very thick jackets, so they just mushroom and flatten out. I like their .380 version, but the 9mm version is mediocre but have good penetration. After a lot of testing and watching a lot of youtube videos on HPs, I have decided on the Federal Premium HST 124 or 147 standard pressure HP's or the Ranger T-Series 127 or 147.

    The USAammo's have been reliable, feed properly, and shoot accurately. I am a big fan of USAammo generally....great prices, great customer service, and adequate quality. They don't have enough variety of JHP's in 9mm... just 115gr. I don't know about .40cal. I would try a box and shoot a few into water or phone book and see how they look.

    WARNING: Do NOT use any of their reloaded ammo in Kahr handguns....they have exploded in my Kahr twice. Reloads work fine in all my other guns: Cz 2075, FNX-9 and Ruger P95.

    Fucking seriously? Holy shit that's scary. I just ordered 1000 of the remanufactured 9mm 115gr. Maybe I should refuse delivery?

    And as far as Self Defense ammo goes, I've settled on the Ranger T-Series 124gr +P. After research on YouTube (thank you TNOutdoors9), emailing Winchester for ballistics, and just digging around, it seems like these are good rounds. I also found that Gold Dot and HST are exceptional rounds. In most tests, I saw, Golden Sabers had core and jacket seperation, so I'm avoiding those for now.

    The Win USA 9mm and 45 JHP are both decent. Extremely reliable--feed great and always go bang. Have fired both into milk jugs full of wet newspaper and both expand OK. They don't have the best expansion around, and I don't use them for carry but I do use them for SHTF stock piling. The price is right and they are perfect if you want to put away a couple cases just in case...

    XD40:
    The rounds exploding only has to do with the Kahr handguns....no other handguns that I know of have this issue.
    THis is related to ANY reloaded round......not just USAammo. This is not a USAammo issue...this is a design issue with the Kahrs.
    They leave more of the casing exposed and this is what causes the problem.

    I would not expect a problem with your XD....if that is what you are firing them in.
