Military Ballistics Industries makes ammo in the US designed for economical range in training use. Due to a few cost saving measures, MBI ammo is offered at a competitive price point to fit almost any budget. All MBI ammo feature once fired brass or nickel coated brass casings gathered from law enforcement shooting ranges.
This is reloaded ammo, but it's not like what you'd make in your basement. It's all done on high tech automated machines. And other than the used cases, it's very similar to factory new ammo. MBI also uses copper plated bullets rather than the traditional full metal jacket. The copper plating is thinner than a copper jacket but performance is very similar. I shot thousands of rounds plated bullets and not had any problems with reliability or accuracy. But it's not recommended that plated bullets be used with ported barrels since the ports can shear off the copper plating. Plated bullets are also less hazardous for use in indoor ranges since there's no exposed lead anywhere on them.
For this test we shot the 124 grain 9mm MBI ammo. We had no problems with function or reliability in any of our seven test guns. Accuracy was good too and even came out a little better than our MBI 115 grain tests. You may not have heard of Military Ballistics Industries before, but we've gotten a lot of great feedback on the website. So if you've got any doubt, just check out the reviews section.

9mm 1000 round
i do not recommend these bullets. would not cycle though an entire mag without jamming up. I used this ammo at the range with a glock 26 gen 5, fn509 tac, sig 365 sas. all guns used would not cycle an entire mag without causing fault. they were giving light strike and would rack the slide far enough to eject the case but not far enough to fully seat a new round in the chamber, or lock slide back when mag was empty. FYI - purchased a box of ammo at the range while having these issues and all 3 guns used worked without fail. I would not recommend ever purchasing this ammo even for range use.
Good, but you get what you pay for
Service from LuckyGunner was excellent, however, this ammo should be handled with care. If you have MBI ammo from Lot# 22ME0421 242 SM0504-4, I recommend keeping an eye out for squibs. Half of my first 30 rounds were firing light (indication of low or defective powder).
Although we don't manufacture any of the products we sell, we want you to be happy with every round. Give us a call or drop us an email. We can assist you in getting the issues resolved. Ross
Except for the fact that I ordered brass casings and in every package there’s at least two or three aluminum casings that work fine but maybe they should be more careful in packaging
Shipping was pretty fast two or three days. Quality was very good
Great BANG for your buck!
Minor visible defects on on round’s casing “neck down” to the bullet itself as they were reloaded from once fired brass. Aside from aesthetics, these rounds shoot great! No stove pipes, duds and hang fires through several hundred rounds from the case of 1000 I bought. Shot out of a Sig P365 and S&W M&P9 shield with no failures whatsoever. Great value, great primers and consistent ejections even rapid firing. Will absolutely buy again!
Do not buy
About 10% of the rounds jam and are not proper sizing to load a round. The casings have irregularities or bulges preventing rounds to fall in or out of the chamber easily. I've had many issues having to use a metal rod of some kind and a hammer to punch out the live round or casings. Or if the casing does fit and a round goes off, the casing is jammed in so tight, I cannot pull open the slide with my bare hands. I would HIGHLY recommend against buying these unless you want to be like me, having to double check every live round will actually fit in the chamber.
The first 2000 rounds I shot of this, I had maybe 7-10 FTF or squibs. The next 1000, I had about 100 squibs. I have 1000 rounds untouched at the moment, not really feeling confident as I've mixed the batches into various ammo cans. If MBI could raise their the consistency or exchange what I have left, I would absolutely buy these again, but squibs are pretty deterring for an amateur such as myself. Murica!
Think I got a bad batch
Cant say im 100% happy with how these performed. all the rounds look good for once fired brass, and i haven't had one fail to go bang in 400 rounds, but it seems that at least 10-15 rounds in each bag are loaded a millimeter or two too long and get hung up in both factory and aftermarket glock magazines. if it wasn't for that factor id love them.
Not bad for the money
Found a few rounds that had random depressions in the casing, and so far out of about 300 rounds I've had 2 duds but no squibs. If you know how each malfunction works and how to clear them safely, while saving a few bucks on ammo, this is the ammo for you. Otherwise go with new factory loaded ammo.
I bought 1000 rounds, since iv’e only shot one bag (100per bag) take this with a saltine. All 100 functioned perfect, in fact they have been more accurate in my pistolero than WinWhite. However i have seen some hard crimps in the bag they all functioned just fine. I inspected the entire bag before shooting and the primers were all perfect looking, all the bullets were seated to same height, no dents in the brass, the only thing i noticed were about 20 of the 100 had hard crimps around the cases.
i’m up to buy more since this is a smaller ammunition manufacturer in the USA doing something different with second reload brass and seemingly good quality controls.
I have 200 rounds left of my initial 1000 rds ordered. I gave quality a 4(4 3/4 really) only because about 7 rounds so far were aluminum cased, and my range is brass only. Not a real big issue, but shipping and performance are outstanding.
Great Value Decent Performance
Ran 1,000 through my Sig P320 over the course of a month. There were three under powered loads, one squib. Only one of thee under powered loads failed to cycle properly. Not bad for bulk reloads. Not to dirty, I have shot Remington that leaves noticably more residue behind. Still, felt the need to clean after every 200 rounds. For the price, I am happy with the overall perfomance. I would recommend these rounds for range practice.
Not too shabby
Had maybe 5 or 6 rounds that were either crimped wrong or the bullet was seated to far into the case. Over all it did everything I could have expected out of it. not a bad price for 1000 rounds with only a few minor issues.
I've bought these several times in 1 or 200 at a time. Was satisfied every time. Went ahead and ordered 1000 rds. Never a problem shooting them through my Canic, gave a 100 rds. to friend who shoots a S&W, no problems fired well. Gave a 100 rd. pack to my cousin who uses a Block. Said he was very satisfied as far as a range round and you can't beat the price.
Great range round
We have been using this ammo as our range rounds for 3 years now. In those 3 years, I'd say we have used 6 case lots a year so 18,000 rounds now. In all that we have had one round that would not fire and a total of six spent cartridges that did not eject properly, that could have been poor grip by self or wife as a issue also.
I highly recommend this product and lucky gunner is awesome as a shipper, product usually arrive in 2 days from order placement, never longer than 3 business days. From order to shipment is usually a lightening fast 12 hours or less.
Went down hill
I have bought these a few times before and they went well. No major issues. I understand buying this type of ammo is a risk with having an issue or two in the 1000 round box, however, the last 1000 I received were so bad, I won’t buy these again. I had 5 squib loads in the first 2 bags. In 3 different guns, so I can’t even blame the gun. I don’t know it’s this is a quality control issue or if I got lucky the first two purchases. I hope this helps someone and I hope they work well for you.
I couldn't even use these rounds. The reloading was done so poorly that they wouldn't cycle or eject. Bulging cases and bullets set too deep in the case. This ammo is dangerous to try to use. I bought 1000 rounds and I have to throw 985 of them away! Do yourself a favor and buy something else.
Great Range Round
Purchased the 1000 round count after an evaluation of a single 100 pack. No issues at all with either. Shot nearly 800 of the 1000 and each one goes bang and flies towards the backstop whereever I am aiming; not much more you could ask for. Already re-ordering.
Great until it's not.
These used to be my go-to range ammo. My first 2000 rounds were flawless. Bought another 2000. First 1000 performed as expected. Second 1000 must've been a bad batch. I would see around 5 squib loads every 100 rounds.
Reliable, clean, affordable, accurate.
I bought this re-manufactured ammo to make the range trips a little cheaper.
I've run several hundred rounds through my Sig P226 and Sig M11A1 and this ammo has worked flawlessly so far. No failures to report and it's every bit as accurate as the 124gr FMJ I normally run.
Never buying again
The last batch of 1,000 I purchased was horrible. I literally had a 50 round ammo box nearly full of squibs that I had to rod out of the barrels of my handguns, dead/non-functioning primers, casing pulled back from the bullet, and dented casings. I'm not blaming LuckyGunner for this, and will continue to use their buisness. But I will never buy MBI again. There are some serious quality control issues.
watch those loads carefully
I have used several thousand rounds of this stuff and became concerned over the bad reviews I started seeing. Lo and behold, I was in a combat pistol class and stuffing my Glock mags when I felt a funny round. It was brass case with a partially seated bullet but no powder. However it did have a primer. That would have been disastrous had I not had eyes on it when I was loading. A squib can be very serious. I am weary of this stuff now and went to Winchester NATO instead. A few bucks more but never had an issue with that.
Great Ammo at a great Price!
Bought 500 rounds of this ammo because I was sick and tired of Winchester White box letting me down at the range. I went through this reman ammo so fast bc every single round functioned flawlessly. I ran them in a variety of hosts including Gen 4 Glock 19 Gen 3 Glock 22 with Silencerco 9mm conversion barrel, QC10 AR 9mm. Ammo functioned flawlessly unsurpressed as well as suppressed. Great value. About to get more.
I'm a novice at this, but I've fired perhaps 700 rounds through HiPoint 9 semi and HiPoint 9 carbine, without any failures of any kind. I will continue to use this for range practice. And love dealing with Lucky Gunner. They are tops with price and delivery.
Great range ammo for the price
I'll admit I was quite skeptical when I made this purchase. However after going through 300 rounds at the range yesterday (M&P9 Shield 2.0 and Ruger EC9S) had zero failures. Ammo does shoot a little dirty so you might want to clean afterwards, but for the price this makes good range ammo.
I bought a bag of 100 rounds a few months after the Sandy Hook tragedy, I paid an exorbitant amount of money for these but was the only ammo I could find at the time. I was shooting this ammo from my Glock 19 gen 4 which was properly cleaned and lubricated using factory magazines, I had NUMEROUS fail to fire so much that I was disgusted by MBI, Im not sure what primers they were using at the time but the were almost diamond hard which wouldn't work in the Glock, which is surprising. I will buy another bag for this years training and see if it has improved. At this time I would not recommend this ammo
Very Good Value for Practice Ammo
I have purchased 2000 rounds of this ammo for use with my Beretta 92FS.
There have been 0 failures so far with the ammo or the gun. This is ammo is definitely reloads so with that comes generally more dirt build up in your gun and some what inconsistent accuracy performance (IN COMPARISON to high grade target ammo of course.)
However in the context of reloaded, low cost, affordable, practice ammo (especially for beginners getting into high volume handgun shooting); this ammo is OUTSTANDING.
It does not replace the need to buy proper HP self defense rounds and eventually (for those interested) higher grade target ammunition but, it serves it's intended purpose flawlessly.
Definitely would recommend for new shooters and high volume training.
Over 9000 rounds fired
I have ordered 9000 rounds over the past year or so. I have shot them through Sig P320s, X-five and a Glock 17 and 19. Out of those 9000 rounds, I have had one squib, 5 or 6 light primer strikes that fired the second time. They feed and extract very well. I can’t remember a fte or ftf using this ammo. This is my go to range ammo hands down.
We've used about 10,000 rounds of this ammo... no issues really at all. Maybe less than 5 failure to feed. That could have been limp wristing... We use them for practice as well as action shooting. Guns? Walther PPQ M2 9's, Sig P226 Navy, Ruger LC9s, Walther PPS M2, S&W Shield, Glock 17, S&W Core 5L Ported.
We ran a handful thru a Model M1938 full auto, dad's CZ, and probably a few that I've forgot.
This works in our world... pretty flawlessly.
Great for target and Plinking
I was a bit skeptical, but the reviews were on point.
This stuff works, and already went through 250 rounds and did not have any malfunctions, failure to feed, or failure to eject/extract.
I will be switching to this for range ammo for both my 9mm and .40 going forward.
Would recommend to anyone that needs a good stack of range ammo.
I have bought a grand total of 2000 rounds of this ammo, and have had one squib load. Sadly, this squib load did enough damage to my brand new CZ Scorpion Evo 3 S1, that I've had to send it to the shop for repairs to the extractor. Great value, but I have also had a many "duds" as well that failed to fire even with a solid firing pin hit. Based off of the one squib load I did get, that alone is enough to keep me from ordering this ammo again.
Cheap for a reason
i bought 100 round bag of this ammo just to try, it has mostly decent reviews so i figured why not, well basically as you would expect its super dirty, and i had a squib load within the first 60 rounds, ended my range trip early, will not be firing the remaining 40 rounds, spend the few extra cents per round - its worth it
Quality target ammo
I have used well over 1,000 rounds of the MBI ammo at the range with no issues at all, in a variety of pistols. It is clean for target ammo, much better than some of the new ammo that I have used. A great value.
After attempting to fire 300 rounds of this ammo 20 of the rounds were out of spec and did not chamber in my Glock 17 in fact they actually seized up the Glock and the only way to remove the round out of the barrel was to strip the gun down along with a complete disassembly of the slide. I then had to pound out the rounds with a cleaning rod. I do not recommend this ammo if you do purchase it please inspect each round carefully.
My order arrived promptly in one day, the ammo has ran flawlessly. I've been through 400 rounds already and not one misfire or problem of any kind. That's more than I can say about Winchester white box. Great value, great ammo. I will definitely be ordering more
This makes a big difference in how often I shoot
Several thousand 9mm rounds in two Beretta's and two CZ's. Very few problems. My third Beretta, a PX4 Storm sub-compact, won't shoot this, but it is kind of picky. If/when I get a bad batch I might change my mind, but right now it is a good value for me.
Not happy with MBI
I've bought this ammo three times. No problems with the first two 1000 round purchases. The last purchase has not been good. In the first three bags (300 rds) had 6 FTEs and two squibs. Bad batch, maybe, not sure I'll continue to purchase this product.
Have fired over 4000 rounds of this ammo with only two misfires. One was a primer problem and it fired on second try. The other didn't have powder in it so it stuck the bullet about an inch up my pistol barrel and I had to knock it back out. But overall very satisfied. I just received another 1000 rounds two days ago.
High quality reloads
These are reloads like the guys said in the video.. with that being said there is a better chance your gun might lock up a round... you buy this ammo to save money and use for target practice!!! Its cheap but okay ammo
A very good buy
Finished 300 rd today and the accuracy of the shooting is so impressive, no other brands I've used (4~5 of them) can do that.
I used a Sig today and has no problem with this ammo. Ordered another 1000 rd today. The price is... I guess I don't need say more.
Bang for your buck that doesn't always go bang.
I'm on my second order of 1000 rounds of 124gr by mbi, I bought this because it was extremely cheap and I shoot 3gun and do so on a budget because I'm military. My first order of 1000 only gave me like 5 light strikes, this second order has given me 10 and I've only gone though probably 150 of the 1000 rounds. I had mainly just shot steel with it at matches but over the holidays I went out to my land and put some rounds on paper and I think the consistent 2 inches left are my rear sights being off when I had the guy put them on but I noticed that I would every so often get what seemed like a bigger flash and the round would go about 6 inches low and left. You can tell the ammo is mixed reloads because you have all sorts of different brass. For plinking on your own time this stuff is a good value but for me in 3gun and USPA having to clear light strikes and having some inconsistent loads is a pain so I might as well spring the extra $20 for blazer brass.
Great range ammo at an unbeatable price
I've shot over 3,000 rounds through various 9mm pistols and carbines with no issues whatsoever. I have had a few failures with winchester white box during the same outings, but this stuff runs great.
No Issues in CZ SP09 Duty 500 Rounds and Counting
I purchased 1000 rounds and shoot 100 rounds a week at the range. So far I'm impressed, for all those complaining not all guns (especially GLOCKS) like all ammo on the market. So far I've had no misfires or Squibs.
Do not take a chance on this ammo
First time to try this ammo, very disappointed. Without exaggeration 50 to 60% of the 1000 rounds I bought will not feed my stock glock, after closer inspection, the casings are over expanded. Very poor quality control. Never again. Also I did some research and tried to email the manufacturer, no response after two tries.
Squib Load and FTE's
Bad round for my Sig Sauer 938. I had a squib, which stopped my range experience cold. The Range gunsmith removed the squib and said, "do not use this round anymore." So I stopped. Even though it is a one time reload, I would expect better from a round that not not significantly cheaper than a factory load, like the Blaser.
I also had many failures to eject and double feeds. I would not recommend this ammo unless you are looking to create a grenade and blow up your barrel. Someone must have been sleeping on the reload job. Not enough powder or low quality powder.
Enough said. I am very disappointed, especially because I ordered 1,000 rounds. Most of the time, cheaper is not better. Take care of your guns and buy something else.
Good value, FANTASTIC service!!
I purchased this to stock up on my current ammo supply, and was very impressed at being able to get 124gr ammo for about the price of imported 115gr. The ammo all is packaged well and passes inspection. When I get it on the range, I expect it will do quite well, based on other reviews. This is more about the service I received from LuckyGunner. I was very pleased to have my order processed quickly, and received my order within 3 business days, at a reasonable shipping rate! The last bulk order I made was through another vendor, and their "in stock" ammo took 2 weeks to process, and another 2 weeks to arrive at my door, for a much higher shipping rate. Way to go, LuckyGunner! You have earned my business in the long term!
Issues with CZ SP-01
I bought this ammo to shoot from a stock CZ SP-01. I've gone through about 600 rounds so far and get at least 4 failure to feed and 2 stove pipes for every 100 rounds. In addition, the slide won't lock back every other empty magazine. These issues do not happen with any other 9mm ammo I've tried yet, so needless to say it's incredibly frustrating after I bought 1000 rounds of this stuff. Upon farther review, the muzzle energy of most 9mm is in the 330+ ft-lbs range. This ammo is only 304, so it seems to fail to push the slide all the way back on the reasonably heavily sprung SP-01, resulting in continuous failures. Even though it's cheap, I had to decrease the value rating because it simply doesn't work for me.
Ok, but a few FTF
I have been shooting new ammo until now, and always 115 grain, but I thought I would try this based on price and other reviews. I found this ammo dirtier than the new stuff (mostly American Eagle). In the first two bags (200 rounds) I've had 2 rounds fail to fire. No jams or FTE. I compared this directly to the some of the AE 155g on the same day, same distance, and I found that this stuff was hitting low at 7 yards. Not sure I can blame the ammo, but my first magazine of 115g all hit inside a 4" circle, and only half of this 124 hit the circle. More practice rounds coming up in near future. Fast shipment as always from Lucky Gunner.
Don't buy for use in Kahr MK-9
Have about 45% failure to eject in last 1000 rounds. Used to be fine for several thousand rounds. Now, big problems. Took 20 bullets to gunsmith. He put them in 9mm die. Casing in 40% was swelled at bottom of shell. He thinks the reloaded casings have been fired in a Glock, causing the swelling. Won't buy these anymore, if their QC isn't that important to them. I need performance.
If you're reading this to decide... buy them!!
I just put in my 4th order of these. I have hade one issue in 3k rounds. They're great for practice rounds!! Plus they are a great price! Luckygunner.com ships very quickly and I have not had an issue with them either. Shoot with safety in mind at all times!!
Glad I got them and will get more
I bought these to shoot in 2 brand new unfired 9mm pistols; a Walther PPS and a CZ P07. I also shot my 357 and my 45, but that's another story. I shot 50 rounds in each of the 9mm pistols with no problems at all. The groups at 25 ft were excellent. At first I was more accurate with the Walther, even though it's smaller, slightly shorter barrel, and doesn't feel as good in my hand. As I got tired the CZ was still getting tight groups but I was losing my trigger feel in the Walther. I love both pistols and this ammo did well in both. I'm just 60 years old with arthritis and when I get tired I don't shoot as well. The proof is in the first 40 rounds I fired. This is reliable, accurate, just plain good range ammo. I'll get it again.
My New Practice 9mm Ammo
I bought a box of 1,000 rounds because the price was great for brass ammo. I shot about 400 so far out of my Springfield XD Mod.2 and my Sig Sauer P226. Not one issue at all out of either one. My Springfield sometimes had feed issues with Winchester white box ammo but these reloaded round fired perfectly every time. I'll be buying another box of 1,000 when my wife lets me....
Best ammo for the price...!
When you spend a lot of time at the range, practice gets expensive! But this ammo is some of the best around for the price. No issues so far, and this order of 1000 rounds was NOT my first order of 1000 rounds! Order w/ confidence...practice lots...!
I am a repeat customer
Great ammo for target practice. Never had a problem with the range people for shooting reloads. I am using the 9mm, 124 grain on my Glocks 19 and 17 and my Heckler&Koch P7 M8 and my compact Ruger LC9s Pro and I loved. I will keep buying the MBI reloads from you guys! Great service good price and fast delivery!
Great ammo for the price
I've shot about 1000 rounds so far. In a Sig p226!Tac Ops, Glock 19 and a Sig SP2022. ive has a similar experience with each. Not one FTF or stovepipe. This is great ammo and I will definitely be buying more.
Good Ammo/Bad Reload Rep
I have shot approximately 500rds using this ammo and only had one MF. Went back today to the range to finish off the remaining 500rds and was told by the range person on duty that I couldn't use these rounds because they are considered reloads, despite the excellent recommendations by LG, their extensive testing and never mind what MBI says on the package . They range person wouldn't budge so I went home not able to shoot for that day. I guess it depends who is on duty, the extent of their individual experience and knowledge. My bad luck today. :(
Reloads I guess you can expect that...
The ammo has at least 8 different name brand casings in the packs. It does say that the brass has been once fired in the description that I caught at the last minute. I noticed there were squib loads in the batch. I'm not sure why but the chronograph told me that story after further evaluation...
Quality Ammo, Excellent Serivce
To date, shot 600 rounds of 1,000 rounds delivered. No issues with this ammo. Used these for range practice for a church security team - guns fired in include Sig 320, 229, Ruger SR9C, & a Walther (model??). Shipping was quick (as usual)!! Won't hesitate to buy these again. Don't hesitate to buy this ammo for training purposes!
I've so far shot 100 rounds through my XDS9 and didn't have a single problem what so ever. I will recommend that ammo to someone who would like the 1000 round bulk pack but is on a budget. I will say that I will be ordering this product again. I also like the fast shipping.
I usually review a product without extensive testing, these I will, excellent product
One of my shooting buddies asked if I would like to split 1000rds to test out given it's low price per round so after checking out the website I decided to go ahead. Easy process to purchase and good shipping time. Once on the range we were taken back by the quality of this ammunition it was very reliable, consistent and accurate. We fired several different weapons including a inexpensive but reliable SCCY CPX-2, S&W M&P pro, Glock 19,17 and 26, Sig p228, Taurus pt-111G2, Intratec Tec 9 and a very finicky Kimber Solo. Out of the 1000 rds we had maybe 5 or 6 issues with a couple failure to fire in the G17 which can also be picky having a aftermarket trigger and different springs and a couple failure to loads in the Solo and Tec 9. For the price you can't beat that kind of performance and reliability we will be ordering several more 1000's for the range as long as the price stays right!
Inexpensive loads for taking to the gun range
First off, I like doing business with Lucky Gunner, I always find what I need at a great price, and fast shipping too!
Now the ammo: I shot approximately 200 rounds through my Glock 19 without a single problem, then one of the guys at the range talked me into getting a ZEV spring kit, which did make the trigger pull and reset feel a lot better, but out of the next 300 rounds I shot, I did have five that did not fire, buy hey, I can live with that! I will buy again.
Good product & value
I've now purchased the 9mm 124 gr now twice with no regrets. No failures at all in an XD9C, MR9 and PT111 G2. Multiple targets at the range have paid the price for the rounds finding their spot. Will be buying these rounds for as along as they're available when I'm in need to purchase.
Good value, quick shipping, shoots well & easy ordering.
Overall, pleased with purchase. Ammo shoots well. Easy ordering & shipping was quick. Good value. Only problem with bulk ordering, a couple of bags were open, with loose rounds in box.
Shot several hundred of these rounds through a Taurus PT111 G2 with zero FTF (feed or fire), zero FTE. Can't touch this price anywhere else as well, including the local MIL base. LG delivers a qual product, with great CS.
I have a historically finicky Lone Wolf/Timberwolf G34 style 9mm. I put 300 of these through it with a new barrel with zero drama. No other round I've used can make that claim. Making a strong case for being the go-to range ammo for me.
good value, decent performance, poor packaging
This ammo is a pretty good value when you shoot a lot and your indoor range requires ammo that won't attract a magnet. It goes bang on a budget and is accurate enough to satisfy the weekend target shooter so I have no complaints there. The only reason I gave it 3 stars is because of the packaging. I received mine with 6 full bags of 100 rounds, 4 empty bags, and a box full of 400 loose rounds. I'm not saying that I wouldn't buy it again but for me I will continue to buy the new in a box stuff when it is on sale. I can usually find Fiocchi, Federal, or Armscor on sale for only 10 bucks more and for as much as I shoot it just isn't worth my time to have to count and re-package my ammo before I head to the range just to save a couple extra bucks. Plus there is nothing more annoying than having a bag of ammo bust open inside your range bag...
Decent for Plinking
Bought 1000 rounds of this back during the shortage (2012-ish) for a good price and never got around to shooting it all until recently. No issues in Glocks with standard barrels, but I had several issues with the tighter tolerances in an AAC threaded barrel. The rounds often would not fully seat, causing the slide to lock tight on a half chambered round. With my MP5 and MPX it functioned flawlessly but groups were marginal compared to Armscor, Am Eagle, and Winchester (all 124gr) during testing at 25 yards. If you're just shooting steel and not looking at groups, try it if you can get it cheap; if you're trying to zero or work on general marksmanship skills, get something else.
excellent practice load
Bought these because I can't reload that cheap. Gotta be bad, right? Wrong. Shoots great through my Sig 938. hits kill zone pretty much as far as I care to run it out. (25 yards). Well worth the $
GREAT RANGE TRAINING AMMO
I've shot a couple thousand rounds of MBI 124gr. 9mm through my firearms. Only had one FTF so far. Not a big deal, that's why I was on the range. Practice. Tap, Rack, Bang. Really happy with Lucky Gunner and MBI.
Nothing bad to say...
I recently bought and fired 100 rounds of the MBI 9mm ammo. All 100 rounds fired with no issues what so ever. These are fine for practice but you can buy factory loads for the same money. I wouldn't hesitate to order this ammo agian but the price would need to be right. For
Now I'll stick to the American Eagle, PMC, or Blazer Brass at the same price.
Outstanding Price for great training ammo.
If you are looking for ammo that is at a great price for a large quantity, this is should be your top choice. You will not be disappointed. I have purchased more than 3000 rounds over the last two years and have never had a problem. This ammo might not come packaged in nice boxes, but who cares when the ammo is super reliable. As soon as I receive this ammo, I put it away in my own storage containers that I take to the range. Highly recommend if you shoot large quantities of ammo throughout the year.
With a Glock 22 and a Glock 34 I've shoot 2000 rounds of 40 cal. and almost 1000 rounds of 9mm MBI without one misfire. I plan to buy additional bulk packs of 1000 rounds as they come on special.
I'm very happy with the quality of the MBI ammo, the manufacture undoubtedly takes pride in their product.
Great ammo, better value
It's not match quality ammo or I would have given it 5 stars, but it is definitely just as good as any standard target ammo. I shot 200 of the 1000 rounds I bought so far and haven't had a single issue. It fed through three different guns, a S&W M&P, Walther PPQ, and Beretta 92. I would buy it again in a heartbeat.
Ammo purchase from Lucky Gunner was what I had hoped for
I purchased 1000 rounds from Lucky Gunner, the 124 FMJ for the purpose of becoming more efficient pertaining proficiency with a handgun. To date, I have fired approximately 400 round from this batch and I have to say that I am extremely pleased with the quality that Lucky Gunner sent me. I spent the time to box up the 1000 rounds and the count was precise. I have Not experienced any problems with this ammo and it is extremely accurate for range ammo.
It cycles flawlessly out of my 1911 as well as my new HK VP9 that I just acquired today. Both pistols fired this ammo without a single inconsistency in performance. No stove pipes, no non-fires, no over pressure no anything except excellent performance.
I will most definitely return to Lucky Gunner when I run out of ammo or get close to needing more. Oh, and my wife has also fired approximately the same number of rounds through her G19 Glock with the same results. She is very happy with this ammo as well and her shooting skills have advanced greatly due to her confidence in the ammo she is shooting!
Thank You, Lucky Gunner, for Quality Ammo at a very Reasonable price. The best I have seen so far to date.
Best bang for your buck !!!
Look no further for the best 9mm round for your dollar. Maybe I'm lucky and haven't come across the one problem round but all 1,000 rounds have gone down range. I have already purchased another 1,000 rounds to validate the performance of this product and will most likely purchase another after that because of the deal.
Shot another bag's worth!
This ammo is cheap and reliable. I shot it through a Beretta CX4 and 92FS. I've shot it through a XDS 9mm in the past. It cycled properly and hits in consistent groups with all of them. Other than the neck bulge during reloading, it's just like brand new ammo but at a bargain!
Great product! Recommend.
I have used MBI products in .45 ACP and never had a problem. I find the same to be true for this 9mm buy. Feeds great. Fires great. No problems. No a one. In my experience, a great buy for your 9mm range time. Thus far, I highly recommend.
Excellent ammo, great bang for the buck, as usual LG was very quick to ship.
Have sent about 2000 rounds down range without a single malfunction, you can't beat this ammo, and Lucky Gunner is always very quick to ship, 2-3 days to receive.
I love this ammo ! I've bout a few thousand rounds for my guns 9mm, 40cal , and my 1911 45acp ! I've never had any problems I use it it all my guns everything from Taurus to my M&P even my hi - point but I've put a lot of rounds throu these guns with this ammo and maybe 1-2 ftf best bang for your buck ! 10x better then wolf !
Lucky Gunner Is The Best!
This is my 4th purchase of these MBI rounds from LG and I simply LOVE both LG and the ammo. I've shot over 3,500 rounds of this with only about 10 FTF or FTE! As always, this is my 'go to' range ammo, as it's consistently accurate (as much as I can be), and it matches my home defense rounds (Hornady HPs) so I know what to expect for recoil, re-acquisition, etc.
Lucky Gunner again delivered quickly...ordered this Thursday morning about 9:45-10:00am...and it was on my doorstep when I got home Friday at 5:15. What great service!! It's nice to have a site that actually stocks what they advertise, has great prices, and I recommend LG to all my friends primarily for these reasons. Keep up the good work!
MBI 9mm 124gr
My most used round at the range. Love Lucky Gunner and MBI. Out of many hundreds of rounds, only 1 FF is all. And I attribute that to a weak spring in a 33rnd glock magazine toward the tail end of empty. Standard mags are like a Swiss watch with beautiful and consistent ejection.
Shoot these in 40mm with no problems all day long, however lately this in the 9mm is just not cutting it. I'm having so many FTF rounds constantly that it makes shoot not fun. It gets to a point that if just one of my many magazines was to ever fire every single round, I would be in shock. And it's not only my gun (XDM) as I would give rounds away to my friends and they all report the same thing. It's a shame cause like I said above, this in the 40 is solid! Don't know if they changed something in their process recently because this problem only started to happen this past year. I have been buying this round for a few years now and it will make me choose a different brand for 9mm.
I have been very pleased with the performance of this ammo, the arrive in a timely manner and you can't beat the price (mind you, I only use them for range practice). The only thing I would complain about is the boxes are always very damaged when they arrive but thus far none of the bullets have been affected. I will continue to buy my bulk ammo here.
I ran 300 rounds through my Glock 17 at a recent advanced pistol class and I had no issues with the ammo at all. The only 2 jams I had were on the same magazine and the scoring on the actual bullet portion of the round was indicative of no enough spring pressure to chamber the round. I tossed that mag and had no more issues so I don't blame the round at all. Also accuracy was fine in my expectation, as long as I did my part I kept it all in the 8" black circle out to 25 yards. Let's put it this way, I would have to be a better and more consistent shooter to need anything more.
Great value and function
I have fired thousands of rounds of this ammo - have yet to have a round not fire. I use it extensively in training and I have never even had a malfunction with it. Great ammo as far as I am concerned!
Catastrophic Failure - KB (KaBoom)
I was using these rounds in a Glock 17 at an indoor range. And had a catastrophic failure. One round exploded in the pipe, the back half of the casing blew off. Gun is destroyed, luckily no serious injuries.
If you are firing Ball ammo, this stuff is perfect; I have never experienced a failure firing over 1000 rounds in an M&P 9L... no failures to feed, chamber, fire, extract or eject... I wish I could say this about some of the more expensive stuff.
Great product, service
This does everything you expect factory ammo to do. Remanufactured ammo is cheaper because it reuses the only part of a round that can be used over and over again: the brass. There is no reason to buy other factory ammo for practice, unless you have specific training or performance needs. Ammo showed up way faster than I expected. Lucky Gunner has also fought those who wish to suppress our Constitutional rights. So if you have no other reason to buy from them, keep in mind that companies like these help keep our liberty in-hand.
Great ammo - great price!
