    Federal 124gr +P EFMJ Unavailable?

    Hello Gents,

    I answered a question on this board about the 9mm Federal 124gr +P EFMJ earlier and have since found that all sources seem to be out: Ammoman, CheaperThanDirt, etc, as well as my local sources.

    Does anyone know why this stuff is unavailable? Did they discontinue it, or is it all over in the sandbox?

    Thanks,

    Josh <><

    All the EFMJ seems to be very hard to get. I ordered more .45 three and a half MONTHS ago and they will finally be getting some in two weeks! I'm down to two mags worth!!! My supplier said all the ammo folks are having some material shortage problems these days.

    The Gunstore I work at Blue Ridge Aresenal in Nova has a lot of it. I just bought a box yesterday. That is what i'm carring right now. Neat stuff. We had a guy bring in a Level III vest and we have been shooting it with differn't hollowpoints, that was one of the most impressive hollowpoints we shot it with.

    The list inlcuded
    Black Talon Orginial=Expansion Y/N No it collapsed
    Fed HydroShok= Expansion Y/N =1 out of two completely expanded
    Fed EMJ 9mm, .40 , and .45 Y/N 9mm expanded very well, .40 was very impressive (I'm not a .40 Fan) .45 did about as well as the .40
    7.62x25 Tokarev ( Blew through the vest)
    5.7 (Rather not say)
    .44 mag out of a guide gun (went strait through)

    There was some discussion on this about 6+ months ago. Federal was supposed to have changed to the 105 gr. due to performance problems with the 124 gr. What problems I don't know, just that now all that is available in 9mm is the 105 gr. Just speculating but I would guess that they wanted a faster round with reduced recoil..
