"bought this ammo because other ammo is so expensive, both online and in local gun shops. i was apprehensive as to how it would perform. went to the range and had no problems after just 50rds. there were no jams, or misfires. also, the report is not excessive. would recommend this ammo, especially how much regular ammo cost."

"Great ammo. for the price. Shot 100 rounds so far out of the 500 I bought. Not one problem, shoots clean and accurate. Also an American company, that's a plus. I plan on buying more."

"I purchased this ammo, my first order from cheaper than dirt. I received it in just a few days. I only purchased 100 rounds, and I wish I had have gotten more. I have a new gun and I am trying to find the ammo it likes. This ammo was the best I found out of my Taurus 24/7 compact. I shot a variety of different loads; Remington, federal, cci, umc, hydro-shocks, Winchester and this. This BVAC was more accurate and seemed to be loaded more evenly, giving me the same recoil ever time. There were no problems at all. I plan on ordering more of this."

"I bought a box of 50 to test the waters before I buy a bunch. I just shot all 50 rounds through my Hi Point without a single jam. They cycled a little rough every once in awhile and it had some trouble chambering the first round in the magazine, but other than that its great ammo. Whenever it comes available again I will be buying a case. These are not bad for re-loads."

"I just picked up 500 of these rounds and went to the range. Not one feed or extraction problem after 100 or so. Maintained a nice group with my full size HK at 25 yards. Only 4 bullets because they are a little dirty. Won't stop me from buying more though."

"500 rounds through my 23 and no problems. Good accuracy, solid feel. Bullet expansion was minimal, but good practice ammo for the price. I'll definitely buy some more ammo from BVAC."

"This ammo chronographs at a dismal 532 fps out of a S&W 4\" bbl.That makes it O.K. for practice or plinking but far too weak for self defense.The ammo runs through the gun with no problems at all."

"I ran 150 rounds through my new S&W 40 cal. auto yesterday. Every round fired with not a single problem. This is great practice ammo and at a good price. I expected a lot of smoke and a lot of cleaning (past experience with cheap rounds), but was pleased to not see puffs of smoke when fired and the gun cleaning job was less then expected. I will be stocking up with these rounds."

"I ordered 200 rds and put it through my Glock Model 22 .40 and it functioned excellently. Now I just ordered another 1,000 Rds. You can't beat it for the cost. A little dirty so you need to clean your weapon after each use. But who doesn't anyway ??? I will order it again."

"I just got 100 rounds of this because of the price and because I keep 180 gr. JHP rounds in my sig p226 at home. I was impressed by the consistency and accuracy of the ammo for the price. Granted I only went through 100 rounds but i didn't have any misfires or feeding/extracting issues. Also the grouping was very consistent with my shooting abilities so I can only assume they were flying straight. I will by more of this stuff in the future as long as it stays in stock at the same price."

"This is really better quality ammo than I expected for the price! Consistent patterns, not a single malfunction in the bunch! My Glock 23 loves this stuff!"

"Well when I bought this ammo I really didn't even look at the description very well. This whole time I thought I was getting an o.k. Deal on fmj's but when you open a box and find hollow points it's a pleasant surprise. You can't beat the price on this ammo. And hey if you carry hp's then you really need to practice with them anyway. But out of about 150 rounds I had one jam in my new sig 2022. Furthermore I get home and am thinking ok the clean up will be rough, but when I broke my sig down it was nothing compared to what I thought it would be. All around this is a great Bang for your buck. And personally I would feel confident in using this ammo for personal defense as well."

"My Glock 23 does not seem to like this ammo. Out of 100 rounds, about 25 of them were FTE. I'm not sure if the rounds are too weak or if my G23 does not like the 180 grain weight. I also bought FMJ 9mm rounds and out of 200 rounds I did not have 1 FTE or 1 FTF. This is why I think the .40cal ammo is loaded too weak for the grain weight."

"The ammo worked perfect. I just broke a 40cal Sigma in on it. No failures of any kind, but darn the gun kicks like a mule. My 45s don't have half the recoil. I was all over the target with the 180grain. Are these loads a little on the hot side. Or is this what I can expect from this gun. Usually with a 9mm or 45cal I blow the middle right out of the target, with the Sigma and this ammo I sure looked like a newby today. All over the place."

"I've been buying BVAC Ammo for about a year now. I have never had a single problem with ANY of their rounds. Some people claim these rounds shoot \"dirty\", I find these rounds to be cleaner than the rounds I have shot in the past. I actually ordered 2 boxes of the JHP instead of the FMJ. I wanted to do a comparison from what I carry on day to day basis and BVAC JHP. The BVAC rounds mushroomed up much more than the 25 dollars for 20 rounds ammo did! I was amazed at how well these preform! I just got 5 more boxes of the JHP. I now have 3 spare mags filled with these rounds. I feel that they are built right for Target shooting, Self defense. Thank you CTD and BVAC for making such an excellent product. I will continue to use this ammo, both on the range and in the spare mags. They cycle perfectly out of my Glock 23. I know that each time I pull that trigger with this ammo I'm going to have that round hit right where I was aiming."

"I put a hundred rounds of this ammo through my Ruger SR40 this weekend, and it performed very, very well. A friend that I was shooting with had a box of 50 that he shot through a S&W M&P, and I shot a few through that gun as well, and in both weapons, this ammo shot perfectly. There were no failures to load, fire, or eject in either gun. Out of both guns, it shot where it was aimed and performed as well as the Remington JHPs that I'd been shooting. I've seen some reviews for BVAC ammo reporting that others had found different caliber rounds mixed in with their boxes of ammo, but the cartridges in my boxes and in my friend's box were all .40. Good ammo, great price!"

"I bought these actually by accident, however I did a test with 8 phone books duct taped together.. used many different big name .40 hollow points and fired from about 15 feet away.. all of the other name brand rounds went through and through. The BVAC JHP mushroomed up great and did not penetrate the back of the target. I now carry these as my carry ammo. I have gone through about a thousand rounds of B.V.A.C rounds and have never had a single problem with any of them. I just bought some for my AR-15.I recommend these to all of my friends, affordable, reliable, and they function perfectly!"

"The ammo cycled fine through my G27 but my grouping went from 2.5\"@15 yard to 6\"@15 yards. The hollow points barely mushroom upon impact. It's good for plinking but I won't buy more after this is gone."

"Ordered a few hundred rounds two years ago, bullets were the same as those pictured, and for the price, performed very well, I would have been willing to use them for CHL use. No FTF or FTE at all, I was very impressed. I just received a couple hundred more, and am very disappointed. The bullets appear to be solid copper (it is just a copper jacket with a lead core however), but there is no partition of any kind that would be helpful in opening the bullet. I fired a couple into a tub, with 18\" of water, the bullet went through the 18\" of water, and penetrated over 8\" into the dirt. If I wanted FMJ ammo, I would have order FMJ ammo (and I did, and they are great). The price for these \"JHP\" bullets is \"ok,\" considering they are as effective as FMJ."

"Ordered 8 boxes of .40's after having a good experience with 1000 bulk BVAC 9mm's. Have shot only 1 box of the .40's out of a G27 so far but really like the stuff. No FTF or FTE out of the first 50 rds. Consistant rounds and way cleaner to shoot that WWB, Rem UMC or most other low priced ammo. Have had the same experience as the 1000 bulk 9mm's that I bought last fall, which have been shot out of an XDM and a G27 with Lone Wolf conversion barrel. BVAC is the best low cost ammo that I have shot."

"Wow. 3\" groups with UMC went to 8-10\" groups with this junk. As pointed out in another review, the bullet design isn't as pictured. This is essentially a FMJ with a whole punched in the center. Second star is because it cycles fine. Picture needs to be updated to reflect reality. The second box I purchased will likely sit in the back of the safe until I need to break in a new shooter or something."
