Ok I'm about to send in order to natchez, for 1000rds of this, I'm buying the M&P 40 full size in a week or so, and wanted to get the ammo before the price jump. For $10.48 a box it's not bad.



Is there any reason I should not buy this ammo?? Any problems? Better ammo for price??

I dont know about that ammo, but I would buy less incase it doesnt shoot well or to your specs.

maybe 500 rds instead?..

Remington UMC is as good practice ammo as most. I have used 1000 rounds in the past year along with 1000 of Win White Box. I then started re-loading but the UMC always went bang and hit the target.



If you want protection ammo you should get some Hollow Point's in addition to the practice. Try

http://www.sportsmansguide.com/ They have some Winchester Ranger 155 gr & 180gr JHP's for a reasonable price. Their Ranger ammo has always gone bang also and although not the absolute latest bullet design, will get the job done. IMHO



I prefer the 155gr.



:twisted:

It's good for general shooting and plinking, as mentioned above it isn't a good choice for self defense, but you have to practice, and that's exactly what that would be good for!

As you pointed out, it is not the latest design and is not the bullet that represents the LE Ranger T-series line. There's no good reason to not go with the true LE Ranger T-series IMO as it is a superior round and the price is roughly the same if not less expensive. Sportsman's Guide's price of the generic Ranger 180gr is about $10 more (50-round box) than the price for LE Ranger-T 180gr, and their price for the generic Ranger 155gr is the same price as the LE Ranger-T 165gr from at least one vendor.

Thanks all, sent order today. I'm planning on using it for mainly range/target practice. I am planning on buying some federal Tactical HST for the nightstand mag, if you know what I mean :wink:
