Video Transcript:Sellier & Bellot produces ammunition in the Czech Republic that's used all over the world for hunting, for competition, law enforcement and military applications. S&B is owned by the Brazilian parent company CBC, who also owns Magtech, another great ammo manufacturer. For this review, we shot a couple of boxes of S&B in .40 Smith & Wesson with a 180 grain bullet.
Like all S&B ammo, this batch came with sealed primers, which is evident in the red coloring. You always want to keep your ammo stored in a cool dry place, but in the event it is exposed to some kind of moisture, those sealed primers help to keep the ammo protected. The shell casing is made from reloadable brass, and the bullet is a lead core with a copper full metal jacket.
We tried a tin shot group from the bench at 15 yards using a Springfield XDM and got great accuracy results. I think our sights might have been a little off, but you can see we've got a nice consistent pattern. Reliability and function was good as well with none of our test guns having any problems feeding the S&B ammo. Overall, there were no real surprises. S&B makes pretty run-of-the-mill brass case ammo with the added benefit of a little extra protection from the sealed primer. So if you want some accurate and reliable training and range ammunition, then S&B is a good bet.
