They are just fine. The 9mm is a "Minor Power" round in the steel match, so they are easy to shoot all day.

As long as your Croation made gun can handle steel cased bullets instead of brass, you should have a great time.

Are the casings coated in wax or oil or poly or something? is it a dirty ammo? I can feel some kind of slick coating or something.

I know they are coated, but in what I do not know.

They are not dirty. Use a non corrosive berdan primer, but a good clean burning powder that is the same from round to round. Very consistent.

Winchester White Box is still cheaper.

Yea it is, people scoff at the range at white box but I've never had an issue, maybe one or two bad primers but I've had one in a box of black hills as well.

If any one scoffed at my choice of ammo brand, I would certainly tell them I take donations.

I ended up with a box of 498 rounds of reloaded 9mm ammo for dirt cheap to put through my SIG because my buddy's XD9 wouldn't "eat" them.

I've run Wolf, the filthiest of the filthy, without one issue.

I'm guessing the Hornady would be a huge step up.

I said I used some reloaded like it was a bad thing I guess. I have nothing against reloaded ammo. I prefer at the range. It usually means I can shoot more rounds at the end of the day due to more for my money.


These things were HORRIBLE!! The mold seam on these things really worried me. And my magazine feeding load hand looked like the silver surfers. The brass was really tarnished too. We picked them up for $6 per 50 a special at our local gun shop had ran for a moment.

His XD just wouldn't cycle them. Really not sure why. But I didn't mind due to the fact that he was so frustrated with it that he threw me the rest of his lot. I still bought him lunch though, just to try to make it right.
