Many folks will tell you that you need expensive hollow point loads to provide enough "stopping power" and "consistency" for self defense. Expansion of the temporary cavity only matters with 2000 FPS+ in this caliber. Penetration is what stops a threat. A short range firearm needs nothing more than a good quality cartridge and a trained operator. Don't get caught up in the way companies market their products. No need to spend $30 a box for a slightly more "consistent", "premium" product. Highl ... y recommend this cartridge, if it's too dirty for you, then just clean your gun as you should be doing anyway.
I bought this awhile back because my sig p320 loves this stuff. Works with no malfunctions.
I have searched for a long time for 45acp ammo that burns clean and decided to give this ammo a try. After that I have not looked back and compare all others to this stuff. I can shoot 30-40 rounds of this ammo and not get the gun as dirty as 5 rounds of other brands. This has been accurate in all of my 45's. It is priced higher than other brands but is well worth it.
I know there are some out there that says this round is obsolete, over rated or that it doesn't even work as advertised. Well I am here to tell you that I have used this particular ammunition since the early 1990's as a law enforcement officer as well as my brother officers and it has ALWAYS preformed flawlessly in anything it's been used in and as directed. If we didn't believe in it.... Believe me when I say, we'd not trust our lives to it daily! In fact I recently used it to shoot a coyote ... out of my Hk USP and WOW! is all I can say.
The item is hard to find, I saw it on Academy's add on line, and was very happy to get it!!
Purchased ammo at a good price and it was delivered quickly.
Bought a box of these yesterday when I bought a new pistol, ( Canik TP9sa ). Liked the looks of the projectile and the weight (147gr). I noticed that the recoil was a bit less than 115 gr range ammo I normally use which helps with rapid follow-up shots. I had no issues with f.t.f or f.t.e. Ammo was consistent with 1.5" - 2.5" groups at 7 yards. Seeing as the projectile portion of the ammo is 147gr and flat nosed, I think it would make good personal defense rounds at half the cost of hollow ... points. Going to go buy a few more boxes asap.
I shoot some rounds of this 9MM 147 grain ammo every time that I go to the range so that I have some practice with cartridges that are the same weight as the personal defense ammo that I usually carry. It is well-manufactured and has been reliable with no failures to fire and no misfeeds. The price is reasonable.
I put 13 rounds of American Gunner through my XD, and then put 13 rounds of Monarch HP through it. I was surprised how accurate I was shooting with the American Gunner compared to the Monarch. (I impressed myself.) Got this on sale for 14.99 for 20 rounds. I am a cheapo, but will definately keep this loaded in my pistol for self defense due to the great accuracy I had with it.
Brought this 2 weeks ago, happy with purchase....will buy again..
I bought one box of .38 Special to try out. We ran most of the box through a Colt Diamondback. It functioned flawlessly. There was carbon residue at the end of the barrel as there should be with that many rounds, but the barrel was only slighly dirty. I will purchase this ammunition again.
Solid Quality American Made Ammo I Love Target Shoot With. Give it 5 Stars
I was sceptical at first but i after 200 rounds through my Glock 22c with no fte or ftf i will be buying these from now on. Cheap and effective.
Easy transaction, fast and free shipping. I highly recommend everyone to shop at Academy
I use S&B 45 acp and 9mm for practice and plinking. After 300 rounds I have had no issues at all. It is clean burning and accurate,feeds great in all of my Sig Sauer guns.
I'm 72 with weak hands and shoulder problems. The Taurus .380 is a snappy pistol. Went to range today to try this ammo out, and absolutely love it. She's got half the recoil from standard ammo and really helped with my accuracy. Wish this ammo were as inexpensive as the standard ammo,I would use it all day long.
I picked these up after reading many reviews on .380 defense ammo. In most gel tests, It averages right at 12 inches of penetration, meeting the FBI minimums while not endangering others from over penetration. The fluting on the rounds seems like it would create damage similar to a hollow point. Because of the increased velocity, you don't have to worry about it getting caught up on clothing, unlike some HP's. Next, because it is a polymer round, you don't have to worry about shrapnel from a ... ricochet. Lastly, there is very noticeable reduced recoil compared to standard 100 grain FMJ rounds. In a 10.2 ounce weapon, it makes a big difference for follow up shots.
Interesting concept, well executed. The polymer jacket cycles well and looks cool! Will buy more soon!
I have run several hundred rounds through my firearm and have not had a single hang up. When finished shooting the firearm was noticeably cleaner. This is my regular range ammo from now on.
I have been using this ammo in my Ruger and Sig Sauer and have been very happy with performance. Academy has good price and free shipping. Can't beat a deal like that!
I BOUGHT THIS WEEK GOT IN 2-3 DAYS....AMMO IS GREAT..CLEAN...WHISH I COULD BUY BULK INSTEAD OF ONLY 20 ROUNDS...USED MY RUGER SUPER BLACKHAWK 7.5 BARREL...HEAVY KICK..USED AT THE RANGE I GO TO...HIGHLY RECOMMEND...
Great ammo cant go wrong with this purchase and its good for self defense
great price,speedy delivery and good product no miss fires
Looked everywhere for this ammo, but Academy came through for me!!
Not cheap but shoots great. Packaging is big for a small amount of ammo but that's the best gripe I have.
Never had gotten any Buffalo Bore oreviously but got a good deal on it. Pricey but certainly has the velicity & punch of my favorite premium ammo. I would buy it again if I needed to.
Works good in my Glock 21 with less recoil I would recommend this product.
Just purchaseda week ago to shoot in my1935 beretta not one jam. Excellent and accurate. Will be buying more.
