Great until one blew apart in my gun
I've bought this ammo for years now and have put thousands of rounds of it through my gun without any problems. Today however (8-30-19) when I was shooting at the range I had one blow apart in my gun which destroyed the barrel and pushed my upper apart. I looked thinking I might have had a squib load or something but upon examining it, it was clear it blew through the side of the casing and destroyed my gun (Glock 27 3rd generation). Like I said I shot thousands of this same round through my gun without any problems ever. But it only takes that one round to ruin your day. It's just the risk you take buying reloads. Not mad at the company because I understand the risks but its disappointing I now have to replace my gun. Will probably start buying new rounds for the safety of it.
1,000 rounds of 40
So far I have put 330 rounds thru my S&W mp 2.0 with no issues.
The only drawback is whatever powder they are using gets all over your arms, I had to wipe the gun residue off my arms after shooting and I never had that issue before with other ammo.
overall for the price it's a good value.
Good Range ammo, slightly dirty
Never had a problem feeding through S&W M&P40 or Glock. No misfires, very accurate and dependably consistent performance. The only drawback is that it is slightly dirtier than higher quality ammo, but you can't beat the price.
I bought a case of these in 9mm with the eagle on the bag. These were such poor quality reloads that they wouldn't even shoot without jamming. The bullets were jammed into the cases swelling the case making it impossible to eject the spent case. These were non functioning and even dangerous to shoot. Do not buy ammo from this maker!!
I have shot 600 rounds threw my SD 40 VE all shot very good I will be ordering more here soon you can't beat the price I am so glad I found luckygunner and they ship fast they are my ammo store .Thank y'all so much .
Avoid at all cost
I bought 1000 and shot 400 rounds. This is my experience,had about 6 stubs,3 jams and 1 misfire. I don't know if i got a bad lot or what but will never buy this brand again.
On the other hand Lucky Gunner customer service and attention is absolutely amazing. Jan answered my email the same day and fixed everything immediately no questions asked. This is the kind of company i like to do business with. I will be a loyal customer.
THANK YOU LUCKY GUNNER
Squib round 1 out of 1000
Love Lucky Gunner and will always buy from them - they rock. With this ammo I put 800 rounds through my Glock 35 and early on had 1 stovepipe and then a round just went POP. Yep everyone's favorite malfunction the Squib round - thank God I checked. The other 199 rounds fired without issue. I will be avoiding these in the future.
Excellent Range Ammo!!!!
I've been shooting MBI rounds for range ammo since 2012. I've never had an issue with this ammo. I use it
for 9mm, 40 S&W and 5.56x45. I've never had a failure to fire or jammed round. I recommend it to everyone I know that is looking for good bulk range ammo.
so much bang for the buck
I am on my third order of 1000 rounds of this ammo I just love it. I shoot it through multiple guns, carbines and pistols and I have never had a bad round. It is great inexpensive ammo for those days at the range when you are going to shoot 200 - 500 rounds in an afternoon. It has become my standard range ammo in this caliber. The only issue they ever had was the packaging of the rounds and that has been totally addressed. You cannot go wrong with this brand.
Out standing products. I have purchased many rounds, and extremely satisfied. Shipping is fast, and acurate.
Excellent products. Out of several thousand rounds, I have only had ONE (1) no fire. Great staff, and fast shipping. I highly recommend Lucky Gunner.
Excellent value, top quality ammo!
Absolutely everything about this ammo is good. I've checked weights, length, and looked for cracks & blemishes. I can say that I only find the nickel cased to make one or two percent of the 1,000 rounds.
No misfires, or failures of any kind.
As Dobie would say, "Good stuff Maynard!"
Great product and price
I order this product about 4 days ago shipping was fast. I went to the range yesterday and was able to get 100 rounds at 25 yrds center mass with not issue or any failure what so ever. Great product from MBI I will be ordering from them again. Thank you Lucky Gunner you guys rock!!
Lots of FTF
Primer gets hit plenty hard. Nothing goes off, eject round, reload it in magazine and rack it in a second time, nothing happens, do the same again and it fires. Had about 30 of my 1000 do that. The rest of them fire just great. Still sucks knowing 3% of your ammo takes 3 strikes to fire
Great Range Ammo
Once fired brass and zero failure. I like the plastic bags. Easy to store and I can write the date on the bag to rotate stock. My local range uses the same product. Consistent groups. Nice price per round. Great Job, THANKS!
Good bang for the buck
After firing a couple of thousand rounds of this ammo through my Glock 23, I couldn't be more happy. Not a single issue, and the price is very reasonable for training. Will be purchasing again soon from Lucky Gunner.
Best bang for your dollhairs!
I have fired over 2,000 rounds of this ammo, no issues period! Will continue to purchase, thanks for the cheapest high quality AMMO out there. My opinion, but seems like others say the same as well. We can't all be wrong!
Decent Price; Average Ammo
To begin this review I will remind everyone that this is, and is advertised as, target ammo. I would strongly urge all purchasers to only plan to use the ammo as such.
The ammunition is once-fired and reloaded. This does not pose a problem presuming the brass is inspected prior to reloading and by examining the rounds ahead of time, I feel the company did a fine job of that. All rounds I inspected were relatively clean, the bullets seemed to be pressed properly, and there did not appear to be any burrs or obstructions.
When firing however, there were several malfunctions that I have never experienced with my handgun when purchasing more premium ammo. I fired 2 bags today (200 rounds) and had 7 misfeeds and 1 failure to eject. Now, since I was on the range and not trying to defend myself, this was not too big of a deal. In fact, it is not a bad idea to practice with malfunctions now and then just to ensure you can recover quickly. But as I stated earlier, I would not depend on this ammo in a life or death situation.
Another downside to this ammunition was accuracy. I was quite noticeably less accurate with these rounds than other ammunition (premium). This was a little more annoying to me as the point of practicing is to improve on shooting skills, one of which assuredly being accuracy. It was not horrible but my grouping increased by about an inch when compared to other premium ammo which I shot today as well.
All in all, if asked would I buy this ammo again, maybe. The price is decent but not terrific when compared to the quality but either should be adjusted a little. I will look for other economy ammunition in search of better performance. If I can't find any differences in other economy ammo, then I might buy this again.
The basic summation is, this is okay ammunition at a decent price. It is not great and it is not extremely cheap. Fine for practice, but make sure you purchase better for carry purposes.
WHEN YOU PULL THE TRIGGER ON ONE OF THESE CARTRIDGES, IT CONSISTENTLY GOES "BANG"!
I CAN'T SPEAK TO THE ACCURACY OF THIS AMMO, SINCE THE VARIABLES IN MY SHOOTING FORM, I'M SURE, FAR OUTWEIGH ANY VARIANCES AMOUNG THE CARTRIDGES.
Decent practice rounds. 5 stars for what I used it for.
Out of approx 75 of these shot (so far), there have been 0 ftf/ftl/fte. Was just using these to practice drawing and firing/ emergency jams/ etc.. Wasn't really testing accuracy to MOA, but the target was hit most every time (it was the longer shots that may have missed, occasionally) LOL
I used 300 rounds in a training course and have since used several hundred more at the range. M&P Shield, FNS-40, and Glock 23 have all performed flawlessly with this ammunition. Flawless means there have been no failures to feed or eject, no bulging cases, no primer failures, no stovepipes. No problems whatsoever. I will definitely make this purchase again when the time comes.
Great range ammo
I have purchased about 5 orders, 5000 rounds over since 2013. It is used for range ammo both local and annual trips to Front Sight. The MBI Eagle ammo in .40 S&W have performed well in weekend-long, 1000 round skill builder programs. Shooting the Glock G23 and Springfield XD 40, I have experienced very few mis/non fires, no squibs and very few jambs per 1000. I rated performance at 4 only because the accuracy is what one may expect from any blunt nose round, beyond 20 yards. I rated quality at 4 only because in a bag of 100 rounds of brass, you will find couple of aluminum coated cases in there, although I find they shoot the same. Par with Blazer or some other factory reloads. BTW, many high performance training ranges, like Front Sight will not allow home reloads, but good quality factory reloads are OK. I might add, no need to look further, LG is as good as it gets. The price is fair, and they sell what is available that moment.
Overall I am satisfied but...
Shipped quickly and arrived with little to no damage. I was nervous that being bagged up, the quantity maybe incorrect. There was exactly how many I ordered. The only thing I regret is there was no company logo-ed promotional products included. A sticker, or something would have been a nice compliment to a new customer. Overall , i am satisfied and will be placing a new order here in the next few days.
After shooting over 10,000 rounds of MBI 9mm with zero problems I bought 1,000 of .40 cal. during the first 500 rounds I have had 8 FTF, one under-loaded rounded that tumbled out of the gun and 1 squib round that lodged in the barrel. I cant say enough about MBI 9 but their .40 cal is dangerous
Good Ammo for the price.
Bought 1000 rounds, shot about 400 rounds through Ruger Compact (SR40C) and S&W M&P Shield 40. No issues, shoots great. Have not had a single misfire. Only one mis-feed. Can't beat it for plinking at the range. Accuracy is good as well.
I have ordered 3,000 of these rounds and, have ran them through a SA XD 40 service, Glock 22/23, and a CZ-75 B .40, these rounds have yet to cease to amaze me. Being on the hotter side helps assist me in great training with control and stability with any 40 caliber firearm. The flat nose makes it extremely to see where your POI is on the target 25 yrds out. I've experienced nothing but great customer service everytime I call about my orders. I will be making another order for another 1K today because I just got a new piece and had to test fire and adjust my sights to my liking. Thank you LuckyGunner, fight the good fight and be safe!
Good Quality 40 Caliber Shells
I have used almost 100 of the 1000 40 caliber S&M rounds I just purchased from you and so far, absolutely no problems at all. But I did just encounter an unexpected scenario yesterday, with the rounds I purchased from you. The new gun range in my town would not let me use their range because they said my rounds were reloads. I had no idea a gun range would have a problem with reloads. They claim it is too much of risk and liability for their business. Needless to say, I was not too happy with them on this policy because I truly feel there is nothing wrong with the quality of the rounds I bought from you.
Good product, great price!!
I purchased 1000 rds In Sept 2015 and have shot 600 of these through my Sig P229 without any issues whatsoever. The rounds fire accurately and results are no worse than any other low cost range ammo I have used (Freedom Munitions, American Quality Ammunition, Winchester white box). Will continue using this. Great price!!
Great ammo, great prices
I have pretty much narrowed all my ammo purchases to Lucky Gunner. I've compared their prices to all others and they either beat or match anyone else. The selection is always great, web site design can't be beat and they ship and process without hesitation.
I am pleased with the performance and quality of the MBI ammunition I purchased. The price was ok considering the current ammunition market.
MBI ammunition is quality ammo. I use .40 cal, 5.56 cal, and 9mm for target shooting. Availability and price are fine. My guns have not been overly carboned up after use which is important. I have not had a stoppage in any caliber after shooting hundreds of each.
Great price for bulk ammo
I am a cadet with my local Sheriff Department and we have a lot of training time on the gun range. Thanks to Lucky Gunner I am able to order bulk ammo for a great price and it arrives in a timely manner. Thanks Lucky Gunner!
Great Product, Great Price, Quick shipping
No problem with these rounds, in either of my .40 S&W pistols. Fired 100 rounds through each of my .40 cal Glocks. At 12 Yards shots fell within a 1 1/2 in grouping, as good as any I've ever been able to obtain.
Great Value, excellent performance
LuckyGunner gave outstanding customer service with their professionalism in answering my questions and expedience in their super fast shipping.
I am very pleased with the performance of my ammo and guarantee I will be back for more. I recommend LuckyGunner for every enthusiast.
This is THE place to get your ammo!
I only buy from Lucky Gunner because of the quality of their ammo and great customer service. This .40 ammo doesn't jam, is accurate, and a great deal. Been buying from them for years, and will continue to. Thanks for the great deals.
Best value anywhere
I wanted to buy as much .40 cal ammo as I could get my hands on for a reasonable price, and I found this site after searching for a few minutes. Placed an order Friday afternoon central time and it was on my doorstep by wendsday afternoon.
I have gone through 100 rounds and all is well so far.
They may be reloads, but they perform like Factory Rounds!
I ordered 1000 rounds of the Military Ballistics Industries .40 S&W ammo. The first couple of rounds definitely felt better than some of the other R/L I have fired.
My Weapon of Choice is a Sig Sauer P226. Being that I live in California I have to have a CA compliant weapon but thankfully it doesn't really take away from the masterpiece that is a P226 Sig!
The ranges I choose to practice at are 15, 10, and 7.5 yards. I normally keep factory Winchester 180 Grain ammo with me, and when compared to those rounds, these MBI rounds fired just as well. They don't really feel like reloads, they look great and aren't beat up like some of the R/L you get from your local shops.
When I manage to blast my way through these 1000 rounds, I'll definitely be purchasing another batch. Well worth wait time to order as the price is great for the amount and quality of ammo you receive.
Quality bulk ammo!!!
Shot 800 rounds through a HK P30S without any malfunctions of any kind. Powder seems to be decently clean burning and ammo shot nice groups at 25yds. Casings were all in good shape for remanufactured ammo. Impressed!
Please keep stocked! Awesome ammo!
Ordered the 1000 round for the first time and outstanding ammo for the price and considering its reloads probably will be buying this from here on out for target/range or worse case primary ammo if I run out of JHP for some reason! LuckyGunner is my new best friend. Please keep up with this in stock I see your almost out 30k left. I will be ordering 1000k again next month.
Good bang for the buck
I've used these before and had such good service with them that I bought another 1000 rounds. Very, very few ftf shooting through a S&W M&P 40 full size. They are not match ammo, but great for practice on the range. As long as they are this reasonable in price, I will continue to use them. And as always, Lucky Gunner has prices lower than any others and shipping faster than a speeding bullet. They are my go to for ammo.
Excellent price and performance.
We've recently re-qualified and qualified Officers using both S&W Sigma's and Glock's. We did not experience any short cycles or miss fires. Even with a wide range of skill, most Officers qualified with fairly good groups.
Have been very pleased with the ammo so far. I've gone through a couple hundred rounds at the range with no FTF or any other issues.
I have recommended this ammo to some friends. You can't beat the performance and price.
40 S&w 180 gr MBI
It's a good price and the ammo is probably ok for range practice. I've shot this in several different 40's and believe I'm experiencing a short cycle problem where the bolt doesn't extend fully back and fails to chamber the next round correctly. I would like to see the velocity increased (maybe 10%)
We have been training with the 40s&w for several years and have fired close to 30,000 rounds and I have only had 3 fail to fire where firing pin hit the primer. No jams that were not attributed to user error. I would say that the reviewers that are having problems should look at something other then the ammo. Over the years I have seen more problems with the factory loads we use. We will continue to buy and train with these as long as the price stays competetive.
No problems in my HK. Works great every time. Slight problem with a Sig. For the first round in the magazine the slide needed to be pushed forward as the round needed some help to be chambered. Works great every other time. Would buy again.
Very poor don't buy low grade quality
To start off I Must say this Very Very poor grade stuff! Just Don't Buy this! I don't care if you can get 2000 rounds for $50 !! Don't do it. Took a family member shooting for the first time today ( mind you she never ever once shot a firearm before) and I had 2 jams. Bullets went out of the casing and stuck and lodged inside the barrel! I only shot a total of 17 rounds! Total rubbish poor grade quality control. I shoot a Beretta m9 marine, This gun is cleaned and Ive shot over 2500 rounds in it over the years of owning it and never have I have had a bullet stuck in the barrel! Luckily a gun smith was at the range and was able to do the job twice for me but, I got stuck paying a fee for that. Since this was the only ammo I bought with me I had buy ammo at the range at a high premium price. Back to my aunt for her first time shooting ever this gun jammed on her and scared the living hell out of her because of the fear she had the bullet stuck and was going to explode in the barrel. Totally ruined the experience!! Please don't buy this rubbish. If buying in large quantities spend an extra $25 and get good grade stuff. I know I learned my lesson. By the way Lucky gunner customer care was amazing with me and set me up with Fedex pick up for tomorrow and will be giving me a credit on my account so i can order different ammo. I have to say best online site to buy ammo from. Great people and great support!
I've shot over 1/2 of the 1000 round I bought and not a misfire in the bunch so far. I read some reviews of under powered rounds that didn't weigh in at expected velocities, but honestly, I've even hand loaded some of my own rounds over the years that every once in a while seemed a little light. In the end, I'm guessin' most of us wouldn't notice a difference in felt recoil. Practice is practice... These rounds are excellent bullets for the price!
My performance rating is based on my loading them into any of my 40 cal handguns and they work. I give them a 5 star for value, even with ammo prices dropping a bit, for plinking, not a bad price. I think some people fear the word "reloaded" but these are said to be manufactured in a factory, just like new ammo. These are not reloads out of someone's garage while they are swigging beers. 5 stars for quality since I never have had a problem yet.
250 rounds no problem.
Ordered this several weeks ago, received in 2 days. Fast shipping. Finally got to take some to the range. Put 250 rounds through my glock 23 with no problems. Only thing I will say is that the ammo was very dirty. Barrel was filthy afterwards. Overall great buy. Will buy more when these run out.
200 ran so far on my Glock 23 & 35
So far so good, I was really nervous about this ammo at first. I took the chance and it fired and ran smooth. You can tell they are reloads when u look at the casing, this was my first time trying reloads, but so far so good. I fired 200 rounds out of my 1000 on my glock 23 and glock 35 they both worked as it should. Like I said I was nervous so I payed close attention to how it felt and fire, it was fine my nervousness was over at the end of the 200.
Wouldn't recommend it. Very poor Reloads.
First time I shot it, it didn't feel right. So next time, I took my Chrony. If you want 180gr bullets that are anywhere from 847fps to 917fps (probably some less than that-I only measured six, and previous trip, I had some not work the action in my Sig), then these are for you!. A 180 is supposed to be 1000 fps. If you practice with these, you won't be prepared for your GoldDots or other quality stuff. I also bought 1000 of the MBI 9mm 124s. Same bad results! Nowhere close to velocity they are supposed to be, and huge max spread. 1 out of 3 failed to work the action in my Ruger p95. Recommendation:Stay away from these very poor reloads!
first 20 rounds and a squib.
Took 100 rds to shoot at the range after receiving this ammo. First mag 6th round the shot didn't sound right. Weak in fact. The casing did not eject. First thing i noticed sliding the slide back was some sort of yellow paper. I field stripped the firearm and noticed the projectile was lodged in the barrel. It had to be hammered out with a rod.
Since then i have run around 300 rounds with no problems.
VERY PLEASED ONCE AGAIN WITH LUCKY GUNNER
I LOVE THIS PLACE HAVE ORDERED MULTIPLE TIMES ALWAYS A VERY PLEASANT EXPERIENCE, QUICK DELIVERY AND HIGH QUALITY AMMO THANKS AGAIN GUYS AND GALS AT LUCKY GUNNER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
All reloads were great; no split, over crimps or miscellaneous damage. The rounds fired flawless with no misfeeds or failures. That's about all you can hope for. The rounds shot cleaner than most ammo and did not tarnish my hands while loading each round into cases after inspection.
600 rounds and I am very happy.
I have fired ~600 of the 1000 rounds through my Sig P250 and not one FTE or FTF. I thought audibly one sounded weaker, but it was enough to throw back slide and it hit the target about where I was aiming. So I don't know for sure.
I can tell you during that same time I have seen manufactured ammo fail to fire, fail to eject, and jam in friends guns. Remington bullets were more than half of them.
Also contrary to reports this ammo doesn't appear to be any dirtier than the store bought winchester stuff I was using before price forced me to look at cheaper alternatives. Very fast wipe down and cleaning after firing 200 rounds of these bullets per each visit to range.
Great Bang for Your Buck..... (Pun intended)
When I first saw this deal I couldn't believe it because it seemed too good to be true. Placed the order and received it in the MINIMUM time estimated by Lucky Gunner. After about 200 rounds it is exactly what was advertised: reliable reloaded ammo for a good price, no FTFs, no FTEs (thus far :).
Considering the speed with which it was delivered and the options provided for delivery as well as the value of the rounds themselves, I will without a doubt be returning to Lucky Gunner to purchase again in the near future
Excellent service and price
I have purchased numerous products from Lucky Gunner, the prices are great and the service is top notch. I have no complaints and have recommended this site to family and friends. Keep up the great customer focus!!
I bought a 1000 rounds of this ammo. It shot well and I hit what I was shooting at ranges from 3 ft to 25 yards. I used this ammo at the Maryland State USPSA Championship in November and here was the curveball. Although the ammo performed well, no FTF or FTE I was almost knocked down to minor. The power factor has to be 165 to make major, after the first three shots I was only at 161. The 8 rounds needed for the chrono were taken out of a brand new unopened bag from the same lot of 1000. The next three shots gave me an average where I barely made the 165 mark. The velocity of each round was remarkably different which caused me to fail the chrono the first time. Therefore my opinion is that is good ammo for level 1 competition where a chrono is not used. For level 2 and above be careful, chrono your ammo if you can from home to make sure the velocity is somewhat consistent and meets the PF needed before you present it to the Range Officers who are running the chrono stage.
Good Ammo at a good price.
Shot about 100 rounds at the outdoor range with my new S&W M&P .40 pistol. This was trhe first time the pistoled was fired and the ammo was flawless with no misfires. I would definetly buy this ammo again.
I've burned through most of my box of 1000 rounds with no issues what so ever. I used this ammo in a high round count class and watched everyone else have feeding issues with their new factory ammo and I had no problems. Used in a S&W 40c
Great Ammo for the price!
I was, at first, a little hesitant to get the 'bulk-bagged' ammo, but I read some of the reviews and decided to take a chance. Glad I did! This is great range ammo, and I've already run through 700 rounds of the 1000 I ordered with ZERO FTFs or FTEs. Not any dirtier than other ammo, and fairly consistent downrange.
Yes, there are some 'aluminum looking' casings, but they are nickel-plated brass, so safe for reloading. You're going to see lots of different manufactures (Lake City, Speer, Federal, etc.) but again, great range ammo and very consistent.
Plan on buying again, as the price is better than anything else I've found. Keep up the good work LG!!
i have got 2000 rounds of this ammo and have never had a misfire or a jam of any kind,my son and i both have Glock 22 40 cal and have spent a lot of time shooting this ammo and really have come to trust this product,we will be getting more i always keep a stock pile of it works great and the price cant be beat
Great value, but..
After going to a gun show hoping to pick up decently priced .40 s&w I was quickly humbled by my E-4 salary! So after stopping by some local gun shops I decided I could get more bang for my buck online. Read some reviews and decided to give it a shot knowing I'd be saving about $90.00 Delivery was fast and upon first look I was satisfied. The only reason I gave the product four stars was I had ONE FTF on the first magazine. However, I am happy to report I have not had another FTF after expending approx 500+ rounds. I currently use this ammunition on a SIG SAUER P229 ELITE. Worth the buy, and I would recommend this product.
These cartridges were a fair value overall
I have shot 100 rounds With no problems. The cartridge did not leave much residue On my pistol. It was as easy to clean my gun as any other cartridges I've used. The 40 calibers were surprisingly accurate I would buy them again.
Purchased 1000 rounds of these .40 and have gone through about 300 rounds so far. I have not had a single problem yet. Have ran good through my Glock 23, 27 and S&W Shield. I will buy again. I'm going to try to find the same brand in 9mm and .45 auto. No complaints.
Decent for the price
I was just looking for target rounds. I wouldn't use this for self-defense rounds but I could if I needed to. Worked well in my glocks (23,22) but glocks shoot just about anything. I would recommend just based on value.. great stuff and shipped quick thank you
worth the money, no missfires _ would buy more in the future
I'll admit at first I was very skeptical. After reading reviews and watching a couple videos I purchased it. I was a little surprised when the shells were a silver color but the bullets have been excellent. Zero misfires. Ive shot 500 rounds thru my sr40 w zero issues ! Great for the range. Very satisfied. We all know 40 cal is expensive as it is, it is nice to find something at a reasonable price.
Great value ammo hands down.
I have literally fired 10k plus rounds of MBI pistol ammo in 9mm, 40SW and 45ACP. I personally have never had a FTF or FTE. Quality, performance and accuracy is on point with MBI. Have noticed some nickel rounds seem to float/rattle in the mag where the brass rounds don't but every thing always fires with out issue.
LUCKY GUNNER... service and support is world class. Ships same or next day depending what time I have placed the orders and orders always show up typically on the second day from when the order is placed. Actually placed an order early one morning and was pleasantly surprised when the boxes were on my front porch the next day when I got home from work.
Thanks for providing a cheaper round for target practice.
I placed the order and received it within a few days. As always Lucky Gunner is prompt with their orders. I went to the range a few weeks ago and fired approximately 200 rounds (of these reloads) you would never know the difference (if it wasn't for the different colored brass in the bags). I plan on ordering more of these in the 40 cal and other calibers.
Excellent practice ammo
I shot thru the first 1000 rounds with absolutely zero complaints. I'm currently working thru my second thousand.
By the way, if I have to buy once fired brass and all the other components, my cost is 25 cents per round, as is this stuff, SO....my time is worth something so I reload other caliber ammo to save $'s and buy this ammo from Lucky Gunner and enjoy more range time!
This is my 2nd purchase of 40 S&W - 180 gr FMJ - Military Ballistics Industries - 1000 Rounds. I have had one suspect round in 1000 rounds. I think was a light load. The ammo seems to leave slightly more powder residue but not bad at all. I fired all these through my Glock 27 Gen 2 and S&W SD40. No problems at all. I have recomended them several times and others that shoot with me have started using them too. A good value on this target ammo which is why I didn't hesitate ordering them again.
Not a fun day on the Range
Bunch of really good reviews on this stuff and that may very well be the case but not for me. Used this today as training ammo in hopes it would be a good alternative. Had 26 misfires and one reloaded round with the casing shredded inside the bag. Used multiple bags hoping for only a bad batch. Even though I would never use this as defense or force ammo, Unless you really want to get good with ammo malfunction drills. Buy something that will at least let you perform your drills without issue so you can actually get some training in for the day.
The rounds that did fire were fairly consistent and good enough for a long day at the range but with that many issues it just isnt worth it to me to buy this stuff and use it to train.
Hope this helps someone out.
For the money, you can't beat this ammo. Used at the range in a variety of different weapons, Glocks, M&Ps, etc, and not one misfire or FTF/FTE. Will be purchasing these again, hopefully the price doesn't go up again.
Works as advertised.
So far I have only fired around 200 of the 1000 rounds I purchased, and no problems yet. I have not had a single malfunction with any of them and they have all gone "downrange" without problem. I am quite happy with this purchase, and I also turned a friend on to this as well.
Good rounds for practice and allows trigger time without breaking the bank!
I ordered these rounds and they shipped and were received in a very timely manner. I was impressed! The rounds were of good quality for the most part. there were a few rounds that were reduced recoil and only a few failed to fire. For the price of the rounds I was pleased as it allowed me to shoot 1000 rounds for a modest price. I will be ordering more very soon.
I ordered 1000 rounds as well and have fired about 500 at the range with my sons, have had a couple of bad rounds not too dirty, groups are tight and consistent. I will be purchasing again real soon. Thanks LG
Lucky Gunner provides good quality ammunition for a very reasonable price.
We train with our armed officers every quarter, so as a small business, that can be expensive. Inasmuch as we are committed to quality training, we look for quality ammunition. Keeping our Officers trained without breaking the bank is extremely important to us. Lucky Gunner ammo allows us to meet our goals.
Great price, fast shipping, great ammo for practice
My first order was for one bag of 100 rounds and no problems. So I ordered a thousand and last week at range went through 200 rounds without a misfire. I did inspect each round when loading magazines. Works great in my Glock 23. Look, I know people are apprehensive, as I was. about reloaded ammo but, I feel a lot more confident now that I've used it.
Great deal all around
I had recently purchased these not sure what I would get but took the chance. Glad I did. I went out yesterday to the range and lobbed 200 rounds through my SR40C with no jams, misfires or issues of any kind. It also shot cleaner than my hand loads. For the value and the savings in time by not reloading this was a great deal and I will be purchasing more.
Didn't miss a beat
Ran 600 last weekend at Gunsite through my Sig P226, and P239. No FTF, no FTE's, nothing but straight downrange. I am surprised how clean it runs compared to other inexpensive ammo. I will definitely be putting another order in soon.
I have shot 250 rounds out of the 1000 I received. I only had a problem with 1 round so far. At first I thought I had a squib, but it hit the target, all be it extremely low. Other than that the ammo has performed extremely well, and I will be ordering more in the future for range use.
Great Value for the range!
I have ran almost 2000 round through my PX4 Storm with out Any problems. 0. None. One thing I have noticed is this ammo has a slightly decreased recoil from other brand, like Federal or Blazer. Not super snappy. Pretty smooth. THE BAD: powder smokes a little more and smell like a little more sulfur in the mix. But all in all, great ammo.
