Ammo

Until I joined this forum I would buy different brands of ammo. Since joining all I want to shot is Freedom Munitions ammo. I have had such good luck with it, if they are out of a certain caliber I am looking for, I will wait until it is back in stock before buying any. Hope they keep up their good quality.

Preaching to the choir there SuperTool. We love FM.

I’ve always had good luck with FM ammo. I do buy other brands if I find a good deal but most of my current ammo is FM.

With the exception of my .460 Rowland for the last 5 years Freedom Munitions has been the only range ammo I shoot. They don't load .460 Rowland so I get that from Underwood ammo.

The only thing better is reloading your own.

I was shooting a lot of FM but lately have gotten away from it. I am finding better deals on name brand stuff on line these days. But was happy with FM.

FM now sells their seconds under "Ammo Valley" and are a bit cheaper still.

Thanks for the info and the link KC. Their reman 9mm 147gr {$80.50} 500 ct and 230 gr {$113} 500 ct is hard to beat. The site looks exactly like FM and is owned by Howell Munitions just like FM is.

The "Plinker" ammo in .308, 5.56 and maybe a couple others is very interesting to me.

I like FM and made several purchases from them. I've bought new ammo, reloads and even some of the American Steel. But I only bought 9mm because that's what I've been shooting the most of lately.

Only issues have been the wait time for shipping and I have been finding one round in every 1000 reloads with an upside down primer. Not a biggie because I don't use it for carry ... only as range ammo.

Now a days I try to support my local guy who sells a case of Fed. Champion 115gr. 9mm for $189.99 and I can pick up a case on the way to the range if need be.

I load my own .38, .357 and .44 mag. I also learned to watch for sales, coupons and rebates that can be combined to get some great deals on Winchester, Remington and Sig at Cabela's. And I always check out the other players on the internet for good deals.
