re manufactured ammo ?

Post by rebs on 3/10/2017, 11:20 am

would you guys shoot re manufacture ammo in 9 mm ? the company has since closed. I don't know if they just weren't profitable or had law suits for bad reloads.

If it's not new/reputable mfgr or loaded by me...not in my gun.

When the Dr. asks, "How did you end up in the ER today?"
You'll be able to day, "I saved $0.10 a round!"

Bullets with a known pedigree are ALWAYS cheaper than a trip to the Emergency Room.  Laughing

My thoughts are 1) what components were they using?  2) have I personally shot any of them?  3) is the load data available - or at least the velocity data?  

If they were dismantling surplus government rounds and reloading with different powder (as was one company I heard about), I would definitely not shoot those.   Give 'em away.

9mm no factory ammo is cheap enough and if you want to tailor loads just reload yourself. Zeke Normandin is good and I think Zero has a program....High pressure round not much room for error. 

For service pistol, Atlanta Arms or Zero is what I would use.

Thank you guys, I have decided not to shoot these rounds and I will not sell them or give them away because I would have to live with myself if anyone got hurt. I decided to pull the bullets, dump the powder on my lawn. I will use the cases and bullets with my powder and load data.

Re manufacture ammo, a fancy name for reloads.  Nothing wrong with reloads as long as they are my own.  Don
