    All of the S&B ammo I have used (mostly .380ACP and 9mmLuger)could be reloaded (boxer primed). I found it a little more tricky to prime them however.

    On most of the ones I saved the primer pockets had very straight walls (no bevel) and they seemed tight. I think using a progressive reloading setup might cause a problem or two..

    How do you guy's like this for range or practice ammo. I picked up 200 rounds of it yesterday based on a old timers advice at Cabelas.

    It's good ammo, and the brassed case can be reloaded, but they have steel cased as mentioned above, so know what you have got

    Yeah....I should have been more specific. They are Brass and using them in my G26.
    Is their a better choice is this price range you would recommend? I originally went in for Winchester White box. Cabelas had everything but 9mm!

    S&B is one of the best kept secrets in ammo.

    the best FMJ handgun ammo i have used and the limited rifle i have used was great as well.

    Good stuff and occasionally you can find some great deals on it.

    Shoot it and have fun.

    I've never had a problem with it in my G19. I also like the fact the boxes are physically smaller then other brands. Makes it easier to store.

    the only bad thing i can say about it is the primer sealer flakes off and makes a bit of a mess. never had any problems from it.

    Rumor has it (for what that is worth) that their quality control is slipping. I bought a thousand rounds in 40 for my FNP, I have experienced a fair number of misfeeds, something I have not had with other ammunition. Switiching to Speer Lawman for the range. Every gun is different so it may not be an issue for you. I have put a few hundred rounds of their .223 through my AR with no problem. All of it seems a little dirty, but not a big issue.
