I use the umc 9 mm in my hi point carbine and it works great. I get the 250 for $60 to $70 I can't remember which

It's not really that cheaply priced. It is good range ammo though. Brass cased, 230gr ball. It is rather dirty ammo though, compared to some others. In fact, it shoots dirtier than my normal re-loads using Unique powder.

Cheapest stuff round here though, at least its brass though. Reloads are hard to come by, the only guy left near me wont do .45's he wants me to buy his shelf ammo which is 1/3 higher than everyone else...

Just finishing up 250 in 9mm. It's ok, but I spent more for 1,000 rounds of better ammo. Agree w/previous comment, it shoots a little on the dirty side.

My Glock chews up all ammo. Hope this ammo shoots efficiently thru your 45.

BTW - Just shot 50 rounds of Blazer 38 +P thru my revolver. That's some sh!tty ammo right there.

That's $10/50...which would be an excellent price for 9mm. I'd buy 45acp at that price several times over if actually true. But it's probably per 250rds, which isn't such a hot price.

I'd only love UMC ammo at a reduced price. Federal Champion is usually cheaper and has never let me down. And I really like WWB.

The Federal that Walmart carries is generally cheaper than the Remington & I've had good luck with it. But if you reload, the .45s have the small primers & I hear many reloaders don't like that. Since I save my .45 brass for the range officer, I don't use the Federal, but I do shoot the 9mm.
