    I shot both Independence and Blazer Brass ammo. I have put over 2000 rounds through my M&P's. Haven't had any problems

    Survey 9mm Cheap Target Ammo

    Blazer, WWB and Federal. I don't shoot greasy Russian crap ammo in my handguns. That stuff is reserved for my Mosins.

    I just placed an order with Freedom Munitions for 500 rounds of 9MM Luger 115 gr. RN Training Ammo cost of the ammo was $84.50. Will be placing a order this weekend with them for .38 Special and .40 Cal.

    I mostly use cci blazer brass because when I was buying bulk, it was the most available for what I considered a reasonable price. My Ruger P91 will NOT cycle UMC so I have not bought it to try in any other gun or caliber. I also use Winchester WB for all my calibers when its available. I have never had any issues with the cci nor the wwb. usually when Im planning on a trip to the range I grab what I have in stock at home which happens to be cci currently because of past purchases. Also cci is currently available in 9mm 40 and 45 in bulk online. When I stop at hellmart, I will glance at the ammo rack and if any of the above calibers mentioned are availble in wwb or cci Ill pick some up.

    My carry gun likes Blazer, don't know why but it just seems to work smoother and I've never had a jamb or miss fire.

    I've run all of these, they are all just fine, buy whatever is cheapest, ... for practice ammo.
    Yesterday at the range, I hit the 2600 9mm rnds fired mark. I've had only 4 issues (punched primer and fail to fire). All four were Tula.
    So, price being equal, I would select Tula ammo last if there are others for the same price.
    For practice ammo.
    My SIG 226 MK25 will eat/run ANYTHING so far.

    With me it's mostly Federal, 'Champion' (WM box stamp), or Blazer Aluminum. (Both use, 'copper washed' or clad bullets.) When I buy pistol ammo at Wal-Mart this is what I usually pick up. In a pinch I'll use Winchester, 'White Box'; but I prefer not to because the crap is really dirty and can be too often underpowered.

    I used to think this.....

    Recent range session....

    Ammo was a 9mm 115gr round nose from a box of NEW ammo from a 1000 round bulk purchase from Freedom.
    Have probably cycled 300 rounds or so through some Sigs and a H&K without any issue at all.
    Have previously cycled 1000 rounds of re-manufactured 115gr round nose 9mm from Freedom without any issues at all (along with about 800 rounds of re-manufactured .380 through a Sig and a Walther).

    What I had was a normal shot followed by a normal eject and a failure to feed -- cleared that round and next round failed to feed, cleared that one and next -- same thing. Set the weapon aside to look at later. When policing brass at the end of the session I found the half case. Very even, level separation (almost like a cut) right about half way up case. Failure to feed was due to ring of brass left in barrel -- once I left the line we broke the weapon down and the ring cleared easily from the barrel with no apparent damage to the barrel. Cleaned weapon later and everything looks as it should.

    been over a year since last reply. a lot has changed. blazer and federal are my choices. good prices,decent accuracy,not too dirty. will not touch a steel cased round despite the savings-wear and accuracy.

    Have been using Monarch 9mm brass with 0 problems. I have used their steel ammo in the past but stopped because I don't like the smell.

    ill use any. I don't care if something is dirtier than others, all my guns get cleaned after shooting any way so that doesn't make a difference.

    I have bought some WWB JHP, UMC FMJ, and Federal Champion FMJ over the last month. I have yet to shoot any through my SR9 to date, but I have noticed that just looking at the ammo side by side that the Federal Champion just looks cheap/dirty. The cases have roll marks on them, all of them, and lead residue is all over the cases. They look like the plating is very thin at best. It looks more like they are "copper colored" than "copper plated". I don't see that at all with the WWB or UMC. No idea how any of them shoot. If I didn't know better, I'd think that the Federals are reloads.
