    What caliber did you get. That would be the determining factor if it was a good deal or not.

    Nothing wrong with once fired brass recycled brass ammo. Remington, Winchester and many major brands sell it like gang busters in stores. 34$ per 100 is about a normal price pre-Obama. Although I reload my own for about $16 per 100. If you have any concerns remove your barrel and drop test all 100 with the gun you plan to shoot. Better yet, if you own a $15 dollar case gauge it's even better for checking rounds.

    P.S. My new SARK2P says NOT to use re-loads!

    According to their website they sell both. My guess would be their own brand is reloaded ammo. Below is a link to their website, youcould always e-mail them and ask.

    I paid $38.97 or $39.97(can't remember which) + tax for a 100 round box of Winchester WB in 45 ACP last week at WalMart. I can't remember the price for 9mm. My LGS was selling 50 round boxes of Speer Lawmen FMJ in 9mm for $17.99 a box.

    It will usually show if the Brass been resized properly and prevent feeding issues or rounds getting stuck in your chamber it's a good way to test all of your ammo before it's fired. The best shooters on earth reload the industry has some stupid Warrantee policies. Shoot what you want to shoot if you're gun ever breaks send it back and deny using reloads

    Well, after a LOT of looking, I found out the following: the 100 rds. of The Brass King ammo was a mixture of at least 4 brands...
    CCI, Speer, FC with the dot (.FC.) or without (FC), Winchester, Blazer. Still don't know if it's reload or not.

    Not one thing wrong with reloads. remanufactured ammo is ok. I would prefer my reloads, over store bought. Their just as good or better.
    Every firearm I have ever bought says in the manuel to not use reloaded ammo. but someone that knows how to reload, knows it safe ammo.

    Brass Kings Ammo

    I've purchased ammo from them several times. He does sell reloads in plastic bags with a printed label at the top. I've personally never had any issues with his reloads. I've also purchased boxed ammo from him as well. At one point I accidentally purchased some +P+ 9mm defense ammo from him that I wasn't able to fire. I called him and he called me back and said exchanging it would be no problem. I've always had good experiences with Brass Kings. Hope that makes you feel better.

    With the mixed headstamps, it's (almost) certainly reloaded ammo.

    $34/100 plus tax is hardly a great deal, though. For about the same money, you could get 150 rounds of decent brass-cased factory plinking ammo (e.g. Prvi, Magtech, or Blazer Brass) online, even after adding the shipping.

    Next time check SGAmmo.com. Quick glance showed a couple of,options for new 9mm ball ammo for $11 to $12 for 50.

    As far as reloads, with all the mixed head stamps, it is almost certainly reloads. IMHO, nothing wrong with that. I mostly shoot my handloads with zero problems, except for one time I didn't seat some 147 grain 9mm bullets quite deep enough and they wouldn't chamber. But no misfires of any kind. In fact, I prefer my handloads, as I can tailor them to my purpose and gun.

    Mixed head stamps is a dead giveaway that it's reloaded ammunition
