    Get it it works. Not exotic or top of the line but what it does it does consistently.

    It works fine, and if you can find it at a reasonable price all the better! I'm starting to see .45 and .40 cal in SE Wisconsin, but still not 9mm. Before things got crazy a year ago you could find this pretty much anywhere for $69 or less (on sale) for a box of 250 9mm rounds.

    I've got 6 boxes left in 40 S&W . I bought them at $11.99, box of 50. Of course that was a few years ago! They shoot great for target rounds. I suppose 9mm would be good too. Yes, they are Remington.

    Good range ammo, don't hesitate. I've shot UMC through my .357 revolvers and my wife's 9mm without a problem. I have a couple hundred more packed in the ammo can.

    The JHP version actually isnt a bad 9mm round for stocking up on. Its quit a bit cheaper and honestly though it isnt the creme de le creme of the lot it pretty consistently expands. If stocking up on jhp is on the wish list for SHTF or the nutty ammo shortages its pretty good stuff while not spending nearly as much money.

    Remington and UMC are cheap, shoot well, and run super dirty.

    Expect to spend a few more minutes cleaning your firearm, but it definitely is good target ammo.

    I've shot quite a bit of the UMC .45 230 fmj through my G-36 and it worked fine. Like others have said it does seem to be fairly dirty though. Good luck!

    Good for target practice but it can be a little weak. At least that is my experience with the 9mm 115g FMJ
