    Remington jhp from Walmart

    Anybody have any info on the Remington L9mm1B. I bought a box at Walmart to try. Just 20.00 for 50. I don't know if they are good enough vs the name brands Corbon etc. Any comments ?

    Good enough for what? Defensive carry? Or practice?

    There is better stuff out there for regular carry ammo, for practice they should be fine.

    Ya usually get what you pay for in terms of quality, but every now and then there is an exception to the rule. I really dont believe that this is one of those exceptions.

    Iíve posted this link a couple times before, because I think itís one of the best tests done.

    Instead of one of those silly pounds of energy test, this LEO did his research of actual shootings.

    Selecting the Duty Weapon--Is Caliber the Key?


    So, like others have said, for target pinking, they are more than great. For self defense, you may want to spend the extra bucks and buy some of the upper end bullets.

    well, I get my Remington UMC JHP's at wally world. My gun feeds them just fine. not a hitch after at least 500rds. Before that it was any old ball ammo I could get cheap.

    Are you talking the 'green box'? I picked up some in 40cal yesterday. I've tried the Winchester PD from W-M, and the green box Remington JHP's in 45ACP. IMO, they shoot well, and have plenty of punch---observations based on my indoor range experience with them. Thing about these ammo offerings---they are all 'full weight loads'. That is to say 185gr in the 40, and 230gr in the 45. I think the 9mm's are 115gr though. Been a while since I've picked up on any 147gr 9mm. I guess that's not a popular load, at least in these here parts?

    I use the Remmington green box JHP as it is the easist ammo to get, the rest are hard to find. Fiochi 230gr JHP has appeared here at good prices and my gun likes it, haven't had a chance to test it on anything yet other than paper.
