Default Any Thoughts on Federal 9mm Ammo?

Walmart is selling FMJ 115 grain 9mm ammo for less than $9.50 for a box of 50. Does anyone have anything to say good/bad about this brand of ammo?

The Wally-World would be great range ammo.

If they have it. BUY IT UP FAST.
Cause it wont last for long. It is good range ammo and you cant get ammo that cheap anywhere else.
Get it while the gettins good

Can't beat it! Gun Shows aren't that cheap. It's good stuff for the range.

I use it at the range all the time with no problems. WM has it for $9.47 a box here--anytime I'm there and it's in stock I buy 6 boxes...

Federal Champion is my factory range ammo of choice. It's clean, accurate and I love their brass for reloading.

Default 9mm Federal

Price went up this morning $9.97 a box. Last month was $9.47.

Bought my 4 box limit both times. Last months ammo worked great. Will let you know if any problems with this batch.

I just buy it for the range and the brass. I reload with 115 grain Hornady XTP and Blue Dot.
