Military Ballistics Industries (MBI) specializes in custom ammunition and ordinance products for use by the military, law enforcement agencies, and training facilities in the United States.

This remanufactured (reloaded in a factory) product is brass-cased, boxer-primed, non-corrosive, reloadable, and packaged in 100 round plastic packs. It is both economical and precision manufactured by an established American cartridge producer.

The brass for this ammunition will have various headstamps and may be brass or nickel-plated brass.

Remanufactured ammunition has been around for decades. Some of the world’s best shooters use only remanufactured or custom manufactured ammunition to achieve a level of consistency and optimal ballistics performance that cannot be achieved with mass-manufactured ammunition. Remanufactured ammunition is produced by assembling carefully selected components to include specialty bullets, propellants, primers, and previously spent brass cartridge casings. The bullets, propellant, and primers are always newly manufactured while the brass cartridge casings are typically reprocessed to reduce costs or improve consistency.

This MBI product is manufactured using only the highest quality products available to ensure consistent ballistics and firing performance. The propellant is manufactured by Hodgdon, the bullets are manufactured at either the Lake City military manufacturing facilities or by Hornady, and the primers are manufactured by either CCI or Winchester. In addition to using only the best available components, MBI ammunition is assembled using some of the most modern electronic press equipment available. Because exceptional consistency is a major factor in creating accurate ammunition, a production facility that uses finely calibrated electronic press technology is key to ensuring that each shooter is well-pleased with the performance of their ammunition.

Each brass cartridge casing used to produce MBI ammunition is processed by first undergoing a lengthy mechanical cleansing process. Once cleaned, each casing is then re-calibrated by an electronic press to ensure that the final dimensions of each round are within micrometer tolerances. Each casing is then re-primed and re-charged using high-quality primer and propellants. Once the new bullet is seated using a precision-tuned electronic press, each round is hand-inspected to ensure perfection.

This product is not just remanufactured ammunition. It is “precision” remanufactured ammunition for the serious shooter. The fact that it costs less than most new ammunition is simply an added benefit.

Video Transcript:

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.

been using them in my henry big boy great ammo for the price ,couple of bags were a little torn spilling some casings in the delivery box (Posted on 1/31/12)
Great value, better than average quality Review by Stodgy
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! (Posted on 12/26/10)
