Has anyone tried the full nylon jacket 9mm they make? Wondering how it would feed and if it would gum up the barrel. Seems like a good idea if it doesn't.

Their "TNJ" ammo (total nylon jacketed) in aluminum cases sounds like they are contracting with ATK (CCI/Speer/Federal) and having a hybrid round made. The aluminum cases were the trademark of CCI/Speer for their Blazer line of ammo. The nylon coated bullet is from Federal from their "Nyclad" ammo line. Federal obtained the patents from S&W (who developed the Nyclad when S&W got out of the ammo business).

The S&W/Federal Nyclads worked just fine. I never heard of a problem with build up.

Oh, and I stand corrected. It looks like Cabela's has the Herter's ammo line made by several foreign contractors. Mostly Tula arsenal, Russia (Wolf).

Herter's,who he was and what he did.

Quote:
George Leonard Herter (died 1994) of Waseca, Minnesota was the founder of the Herter's outdoor sporting goods business and an author. His best known books are the Bull Cook and Authentic Historical Recipes and Practices series (published in 3 volumes), which have a cult following today.

In 1937 Herter took his father's dry goods store and turned it into a mail order outdoor goods business, selling hunting and fishing items through a catalog. He later opened retail outlet stores which pioneered the style of outdoor goods stores now used by Cabela's and Bass Pro Shops. The company went bankrupt in 1981.

He is best known for his books, which were self-published and sold through his stores. The New York Times describes the Bull Cook series as his "magnum opus", "a wild mix of recipes, unsourced claims and unhinged philosophy that went through at least 15 editions between 1960 and 1970."
The Herters name was bought by an Indonesian Co. Cabalas owns the right to sell the Herters products. Herters doesn't mfg. ammo they repackage ammo from various foreign and domestic companies,depending on the caliber you may fine CCI,Tula,Wolf,Prvi Partizan etc. etc.

Herter's was quite a place. I grew up in Waseca and my Grandpa worked there dying bucktails for tying flies. It was the Cabelas of the 60's. They had everything from their own guns to snowmobiles. I still have some of George's books. George was a weird guy. Finally went under when he got caught importing protected birds for the feathers.

I used to go to a Herters store in Northern WI. back in the late 60's. Great store with all sorts of unusual items. I tried some of their .357 HP ammo last year and had no problems with it. It was on sale and I basically purchased it for the brass (for reloading).
