Details

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 50 round boxes. It is both economical and precision manufactured by an established American cartridge producer.

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:

Military Ballistics Industries makes training ammo here in the US utilizing once-fired brass that comes from law enforcement shooting ranges. This huge cost-saving measure helps MBI make quality training ammo at an affordable price. Each round features a non-corrosive primer and a lead core, copper-plated bullet.

Copper plating is similar to a full metal jacket, but it completely encases the bullet, so there's no exposed lead on the base. Because plating is much thinner than a traditional jacket, you can't use plated bullets with a ported barrel, or the ports can shear off the plating. Otherwise, copper-plated bullets function just fine, and most shooters never notice any difference.

MBI ammo could be considered reloaded, but it's a couple of steps up from what you can do at home on a consumer reloading press. All their ammo is assembled using precise automated reloading machines, very similar to the way factory-new ammo is made. And each loaded round is inspected by hand.

When I first heard about MBI, I was a little skeptical. But every batch we've reviewed so far has performed great, and this one was no exception. Accuracy was decent, and we had no failures of any kind in our six test pistols. Ammo from MBI should work for just about any range or training application. And if you have any doubts about its performance, be sure to check out the customer reviews on the website.
