Independence Ammo is one of the many brands under the ATK parent company, which also includes Speer, Federal, CCI, and and Blazer.
ATK also operates the Lake City Ammo Plant, which makes millions of rounds for the United States military every year. ATK's ammo is all made here in the United States, with most components made under the same factory for enhanced quality control and consistency.
Independence is one of ATK's brands designed around providing low cost, quality range ammo. We shot a couple of boxes of the Independence, 115 grain, 9 millimeter. The lead core, copper-plated bullet is seated in a reloadable brass case with a noncorrosive primer.
The case has a Blazer headstand, and the muzzle velocity of 1,145 feet per second is also identical to the Blazer 115 grain load, leading us to believe that Independent Ammo is just a repackaged version of the Blazer brand. It may not be exactly creative, but Blazer has proven to be really good range ammo in our previous test, so we expect Independence to have similar performance.
One cost saving measure of the Independence Ammo is the use of copper-plated bullets rather than a traditional full metal jacket. The primary difference is in the process used to adhere the copper to the bullet, but most shooters will notice very little difference in performance.
Since plating is thinner than a jacket, it's not recommended that they be used with ported barrels. But in the thousands of rounds of plated bullets that I fired, I've never noticed any other real difference.
We shot the Independence Loads with six of our test guns and didn't have any reliability issues or feeding failures. Accuracy was also pretty good. The first ten shot group was fired from the bench at 15 yards using a Beretta 92. Then, we switched to a Beretta Carbine and got even tighter groups. Independence Ammo is an affordable choice for quality range and with reloadable brass and consistent performance.

115 gr jhp
I fired a box of the 115 gr jhp at the range with my Smith&Wesson sd9ve, and it fed flawlessy, even rapid fire. Burns clean and isn't smokey like other brands. Accurate too. Will definitely stock up on independence ammo.
Great value. Only suggestion is that they could package 50 rounds in smaller boxes. That way I could store more of it in the same ammo can. I have bought other ammo that is 50 rounds in less than half the space of this packaging. Other than that I think it is great ammo for the range.
