Every magazine had one or two failures to extract. Didn't matter which magazine I used. When I went back to brass, no problems.

Runs fine in my SR9c.
Recently I have been using Freedom Munitions reman. for the same price, and it is brass cased.

North Georgia Arms re manufactured ammo. Brass cases, consistent shooting

9mm 500 rounds for $99
.45ACP 500 rounds for $149

I have had exactly 1 dud in 2 cases of 9 and 2 cases of 45. No failures to feed and no failures to extract.

I had issues with bullet set back a lot in other guns.

ran OK

I ran a 100 rds through my SR9C with no problems. I rather shoot brass but for $0.05 less a round it punches holes in targets just fine.

I've shot a lot of the .45ACP and .40S&W versions. The 9mm is less common around here, but it has worked fine in all of my semi-auto pistols. It is very tight to extract from the LCR 9mm, so I don't use it there anymore.

I tried a few boxes for range ammo just for giggles.

I had several casings blow small square pieces right off the rim of the case.

Accuracy was marginal.

Have not bought anymore.

Huh ... have shot over 3,000 rounds of both 9mm and .45acp during the past year and not a single issue with quality, accuracy or performance.

My 9E loves it and so does by wallet. Also an unexpected plus...it's super clean. Here's a pic of the barrel feed ramp after 100 rounds before cleaning.
