This is a discussion on Sellier & Bellot -- Good Ammo for Range Use? within the Defensive Ammunition & Ballistics forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Never heard of it... Is it ok (non-corrosive, copper washed steel case, berdan primer, 115gr FMJ)? It would be practice ammo for my G19....

    Sellier & Bellot -- Good Ammo for Range Use?

    Never heard of it... Is it ok (non-corrosive, copper washed steel case, berdan primer, 115gr FMJ)? It would be practice ammo for my G19.

    Yup! That's what I use at the range. I buy it in bulk online, and my CZ just eats it up..........

    Good stuff.

    I'd use it for the range only.

    mabye slight off topic, but i used one box of this companies shotgun shells, and every round "jammed" up my 870 to the point i had to force the pump back , not just work the action.....im sure it was just expanding too far (week brass) but other than that it whent bang every time.....if it works in your gun, id say go for it.......it looks like good cheap range ammo

    You probably got some of the mismarked boxes of shells. Several companys bought pallet loads of them and sold them cheap.
    The only problem was that they were 3 inch shells and the box was marked 2 3/4. If you had a standard chamber, they would jam up.

    I like it; they make one of a few brass-cased 9x18 Makarov FMJ rounds out there and my range prohibits the the steel stuff. Works for me.

    I've used 8mm Mauser and .223 from S&B. Seems to be a bit hotter than some, but seems well-made and reliable.

    I bought 1000 rounds of the white box, red lettering stuff in 9mm. My M&P's would not feed more then two rounds before it would FTE. My Glock did OK but it would FTE once in a while also.

    Check gun-deals.com or any of the ammo online stores. But my local gun stores sell them too.
