Hey guys,

First post in the guns section. This was hard to find!

Federal Armament has a deal on 9mm right now. This is the cheapest I have seen it. Even at a gun show.

1000 rounds for 139 - shipping is a flat rate of 18.

Has anyone tried this before? Thumbs up and repped for posting something in gun deals. This forum is lonely.

Just a heads up, some indoor ranges don't allow lead projectiles on customer supplied ammo. Might wanna call or visit your local range's website to confirm first.

Rare poster, but wanted to say SGAmmo is a solid seller. Won't speak for this particular brand as I haven't purchased it, but they run deals often, ship quickly, and have never disappointed.
They also have MAGTECH for the same price. Recently (and may still) had some of their higher end ammo on sale, too.

These are remanufactured ammo, reloaded using once-fired brass.

I am confused, don't most bullets have a lead center?

Also, i have been to multiple ranges in my time. I don't think I have ever been asked to show the type of bullets I use. Unless I rent a gun, I have never been screened for my ammo.

Pro tip, please also post the cents-per-round since that is how many ammo buyers rate these deals.

I think you are thinking about steel.

If this were a better kind of ammo, I'd buy.

Quote :
Only once-fired military and police brass is used in loading. This brass is acid washed, processed to SAAMI specifications, and electromagnetically inspected for thin walls and defects to ensure safe internal tolerances.
I'm generally suspicious of reloads, but this scares me
Quote :
What is "Range Grade Ammo"? This ammunition is visually inspected in bulk and packaged by weight. It differs from "FedArm" brand ammo in that it is not case gauged nor individually inspected by piece. A very small count of these rounds may deviate slightly from typical mil-spec specifications and may (or may not) contain slightly off-seated projectile or similar minor functional defects, all easily caught when loading your magazine. The inspection labor savings on these rounds is passed onto you! You will receive more rounds than ordered (as per the below) for the chance you find an unsatisfactory round.
Note: Range grade ammunition does not fall under the FedArm satisfaction guarantee & return policy. If you want piece counted mil-spec ammo, please buy the standard "FedArm" branded ammo instead.
If you're selling stuff you admit is out of spec and just giving a few extra rounds because you know you have a high failure rate... I don't want to buy your junk ammo. No thanks. I don't need my nice guns blowing up in my hands. If you can't catch big visible errors, what about the small errors like under/overcharges, thin walled cases, etc?

Some indoor ranges don't allow lead, but it's very few. Lead is the primary type of ammo, only a few other (expensive) choices.

Most handgun ranges do not allow steel. Some cheaper bargain basement (eastern Europe, Russia) has steel or other metals mixed in with the lead. Besides flirting with crossing into the AP category, the ranges are just not rated for stopping those rounds.

Some places check sample rounds with a magnet to verify the absence of steel. I've seen several places who check also have rules against steel cases, presumably because it makes the magnet test more difficult. Then again, it could be that they make a bunch more selling used brass, and they've already factored that part in.

It seems mixed by me of if ranges allow reloads. Commercial reloads from large suppliers are usually safe and on the low end of powder spec. What you need to watch out for is Bubba's Welding and Fencing- now with reloads! Generally the biggest and most deadly errors are pistol or shotgun powder in a rifle case (big boom), but repeated hot pistol rounds could also create catastrophic failures.

In summary, know your range ammo policy before making a bulk order unless you like lead paperweights.

Quick search turned up bad reviews of the Fedarm range grade, including the 1st I've seen for ammo on Ripoffreport. So I'll stick with SGammo bulk. One review:

SGAMMO is the best. Very low prices and super fast shipping. I check with other sites but almost never find a better deal. Sam and his family do a great job. Highly recommended!!!

I especially like the customer reviews of ammo. Helps when you are unfamiliar with a type or brand.

Dave
