"Picked up a box of this so I could put a few rounds through my pistols without spending a bazillion dollars on other ammo. This isn't the best ammo out there by far. It is great for plinking (If you can do that with a .45) but I wouldn't use it for serious target shooting. It worked flawlessly in my XD .45 but we had a few issues with it not feeding all the way with a SA 1911. That could have been an issue with the gun not being cleaned recently though. Overall I was happy. Nothing like a box of 500 rounds arriving on your doorstep."

"I just qualified with this stuff. The crappy range ammo shot 2ft low at 50yds. (i.e. garbage). I opened a box of this stuff and fixed the problem. It functioned perfectly in my P-220. I will be buying more soon."

"In a nut shell this is great ammo for general purpose plinking, the groupings are good enough for target practice and if need be self defense but don't expect quarter sized holes as compared to match grade stuff. At 38 cents per round the price is impossible to beat!"

"I bought 500 rounds for range duty and to heat up my .45 ACP weapons for Militec-1 sealing. It came as pictured, loose in the box. This ammo is pristine, shiny, and looks brand new, not remanufactured. It shoots well with no FTF or FTE. It is short range accurate and burns clean. Ultra fast shipping by CTD, as usual. Recommended!"

"Well, what can I say? There is nothing like placing an order on Sunday afternoon and coming home from work on Thursday to a big box of ammo! It made my day! I came up 3 rounds short in the count, but I'm not complaining. The brass is clean as new and fires reliably, fired 100 rounds this afternoon and no FTF or FTE in either a Springfield 1911A1 or Glock 30. A bit more sooting than with the higher priced ammo, but thats why I have a cleaning kit. I am going to order a couple more boxes before too long!!"

"This ammo was absolutley great! It arrived quickly after I had placed the order. It worked well with my Glock 21. I had no failure to feeds and no failure to fire at all. It also functioned great during rapid shooting and double taps. The only downside that I saw was after about 100 rounds the carbon build up seemed to get heavy on the slide, but thats expected with any weapon. Over all it's great for the price and especially for a shooter on a budget. I will buy a box again very soon!"

"This ammo is a good deal for what you get. I've shot 300 rounds so far with no FTF or FTE. Shoots a little dirty but if you clean your weapon like you should it will not be an issue. Plus having 500 rounds at your door when you get home from work is pretty cool. I love this country!!"

"I have only shot about 70 rounds out of the 500 with no issues. This is good clean ammo. The best buy I have found. A big box of fun!"

"GREAT STUFF! Cheaper and every bit as reliable. I have fired over 4500 rounds of this ammo without a single ammo related malfunction. Every case I have had so far has been Speer brass. Okay, so don't buy it. That'll leave more for me."

"I bought 1000 rounds after reading the review stating it was all Speer cases. NOT TRUE....I received 500 rounds that are Blazer which is NOT reloadable, the primer pockets are smaller than standard large pistol. DO NOT BUY if you expect to get reloadable cases."

"In purchased this last week to use on an older Kimber and new Glock 21. Great performance, no misfires in over 300 rounds. I would recommend this ammo to anyone looking for good range ammo at a competitive price."

"I received this ammo a little over a week ago and it is gone. I have had no ftf or fte at all. I will buy more. My Kimber likes it, it is a little dirty but what can you expect - shooting 2 to 300 rounds at a time? As usual, CTD has awesome shipping!"

"Straight to the point, ordered 500, got 500, all Speer, no failures of any kind, good groupings even out to 50 yards. Yes, I do shoot a .45 out to the 50 mark. H&K USP Full-size in .45 loves these, but buy something else, I need more and I like to have a LOT on hand."

"I bought 1000 rounds of this junk. Fully 20% will fail to go into battery. Upon close inspection, I found bulged cases. It is Blazer cases, which use small pistol primers and is not reloadable with standard .45 ACP cartridges. Not good for reloading, not good for reliability. Junk ammo. I'm only sorry I can't rate it a zero."

"Bought a box of this and just shot 70 rounds this past weekend. It had good accuracy and pretty clean. Everyting I pulled out was Speer brass but I haven't looked at all the rounds in the case. 4 bullet rating for me only because it's still works out to $4 more per hundred vs. the WWB 100 packs from the blue box store. I live in TX so have to pay taxes and shipping."

"So I bought some of this stuff and at first I was quite impressed. Although when I dissassembled my M&P .45 after 60 rounds it was incredibly dirty. Other tpyes of ammo have not been this dirty in the same amounts. To the quality of the ammo, I wasn't impressed. Some bullets have pits and impurities and the brass isn't all the same. No mis-fires but the accuracy had something to be desired or maybe it was me. Either way, I had better groups from different ammo variants. To finish, they were close to 500 rounds but it was like 8 off. Just little things like this will prevent me from buying it again."

"I have put more than 200 rounds of 500 through my Colt Defender. No problems. I notice no appreciable increase in fouling. I have just ordered another 500."

"Another to the point review. Just finished off a 500 round box thru my new M&P .45, no ftf's, no fte's, best grouping under 3.25 inches and at further than standard ranges, all in black. Will be placing another order when I'm done with this. Those who have said it's incredibly dirty and lots of fouling, use better lubes, Slip2000 - E.W.L. and MI2500 work great when you do high volume shooting. I'd give it a 5 star, but I run out of ammo too fast."

"I bought a box of this ammo and in only 15 rounds I had to quit shooting it. First indication something was wrong was when my gun failed to cycle. Stopped shooting immediately and inspected the target found the ragged tear that indicates a tumbler 3 times. The cases where all blazer brass. The owner of my local reloading store recommended pulling and reloading all of it. Kinda defeats the purpose of buying bulk ammo if I gotta redo all of it."

"Ordered 500 rounds of this stuff and took it to the range to break in my new Sig 1911, and I could not have been happier. It has kept tight groups at 60 feet and the ammo itself is not too dirty. I havent had any ftf or ftf and plan on ordered another box here shortly!!!!"

"Shot well over 600 rds of BVAC.45 (230 ball and 230 HP) through my sprigfield 1911 and my FNP-45. Never had any kind of issue with it unless I forced the gun to have one (limp wrist test). Shoots exeptionaly accuratly out'a my FNP geting groups on 12\"x12\" target at 76 yrds and 2.5-4\" at 17 to 25yrds. Mildly dirty. best of all? the price, lets me keep my love of the .45 acp!"

"I bought a box of this to use in my Glock 21, and fired 300 rounds in one day. Ammo preformed flawlessly and I will be buying more in the future. Consistant recoil, and good accuracy for having fun on the weekend. Im currently in the Marines and this ammo preforms better in my opinion than alot of the military ammo I've used. (I understand its 9mm but I'm speaking from a reliability standpoint) One last note, is that the brass I recieved is indeed good quality."

"I bought this ammo because I wanted to get some serious practice in without spending too much money. I show USPSA practice with it and did great. I have an FNP-45 and have had ZERO issues with it. All cycled and fired perfectly. The only downside I can see is that it was really dirty. If you clean your gun like you should then this won't be a problem. Probably going to get a lot more because I blew through this box so fast."

"WOW!!! I'm very impressed with the fast delivery from CTD. I ordered this on Tuesday June 7 and I got it today and I live in central Georgia, haven't shot it yet but will very soon. Will write another review after Ive put some of these rounds through my LLAMA MAX-1 45 L/F, thanks CTD for the fast delivery."

"Works great in my RIA GI model. No issues after 300+/- rounds. I didn't notice it being particularly dirty, but I shoot a lot of cheapish ammo at the range. Shipping was fast as usual. I will definitely buy BVAC again."

"I ran 500 rounds of this ammo through a 220 Sig. I did not clean the Sig until I had shot all 500. Zero problems. It seemed the load was as clean or cleaner than the same amount of hand loads using Unique. Groups at 7-15 yards were 2.5 to 3.5 inches if I did my part. Great practice ammo. Good price and great delivery time."

"Purchased 1,000 rounds of this junk, I got through 3 mags worth on my springfield TRP, bound my gun right up. I don't know if it's just that dirty or the length of the cartridges aren't consistent, but after the 1st malfunction NO more rounds could be fired. The slide simply would not return to battery and stop about 1/4 inch from going fully forward. Don't waste your money, buy quality ammo. Maybe it's just my gun being that tight, but I'm now stuck with 900+ rounds of paperweights!"

"I bought 500 rounds of this ammo. In a span of 3 days of shooting, I had several rounds that did not go fully into battery with my Sig 1911. I'm going to stick with aluminum cases for practice. 1, I do not have that type of issue and 2, it's cheaper."

"I fired over 300 rounds of this ammo through three different firearms (SIG P250, COLT 1911, PARA-14) and had NO problems.Groups within 2-4 inches at 15 meters, no mis-fires or mis-feeds. I'm impressed. Will definitely keep this stuff on hand for plinking."
