You may not have heard of Military Ballistics Industries, but they're an ammo company that specializes in making reloaded ammo from once-fired brass cases. Now I know a lot of people kind of shrink back at the mention of the word reloaded. But this isn't anything like what you'd make on own in your reloading press in your basement. MBI uses the latest automated electronic loading machines calibrated to provide consistent performance with every round.
We've been looking at some of MBI's revolver loads, and for this review, we had a chance to shoot a few rounds of their 125 grain 38 Special. Each round uses a once-fired brass or nickel-plated brass casing, with mixed head stamps from a variety of well-known manufacturers.
The primers are non-corrosive and come from either CCI or Winchester. The 125 grain full metal jacket bullet is actually a copper-plated bullet, which is another cost-saving measure that keeps the price of this ammo low without compromising quality. With very mild recoil, this round is great for having fun with rapid fire or for use in small lightweight revolvers. It's not loaded quite as soft as a cowboy action load, but it's still very manageable in any size revolver.
We used this ammo with six different revolvers that we had on hand, and it worked really well in all of them with one exception. Our Smith & Wesson 686 has a very light hammer spring, and it wasn't able to ignite the primers 100% of the time. But as long as you're using factory-weight springs in your revolver, you shouldn't have any problems.
We did a quick accuracy test from the bench at 15 yards, using a Ruger GP 100. The results were not too bad, with a nice little group just below our point of aim. We've tried MBI in a few different calibers now, and have been really impressed with its performance across the board. If you're still reluctant about using this re-manufactured ammo, then just check out our website, and look at the customer reviews for MBI in 9mm, 40 Smith & Wesson, and 45 ACP.

First off, I WILL purchase this ammunition again. I've gone through 600 of the 1000 I've purchased and the rounds are accurate, reliable, and predominantly clean. Of the 600 rounds, I've experienced 10 rounds that seemed to be "short" (noticeable decrease in bang and recoil) but all 10 rounds were accurate. Great buy!
