"This .40S&W ammo will not disappoint! Excellent price and no FTFs after hundreds of rounds shot through a Glock G23."

"I purchased a box of this ammo to use for range time and breaking in a new Hi Power. Had quite a few problems with this ammo. Several failures to feed because of low blow back pressure, accuracy was iffy and not real pleased that the box was just left on my porch without a signature. I say, not worth the trouble, even for punching holes in paper."

"i bought 2 boxes, and glad i did.no problems with the 500 rounds that i have shot thru myglock 23. before my second box is empty, i will order more."

"I needed bulk ammo for target practice. This has not disappointed me yet after 250 rounds. The best part was that most of them were in nickel plated cases. I prefer anyway for reliability of feeding, and ease of reloading. I will buy again."

"A good price. I saw a mixed variety of about 6 original manufacturers casings. I was a little surprised to see that many different casings, but honestly not one problem. No misfires or misfeeds. I ordered one box for testing and I am happy. I ordered more before writing the review. Enjoy"

"This is my 3rd time to buy 500 round bulk packs of BVAC ammo from CTD. It ran fine though my XD and XDM .40's with no FTF's. Wish they offered the 165 grain at CTD, but it is where I've bought all my 180 grain rounds. My 40's eat this stuff well and I will buy more."

"Bought 1 box to test with my Springfield XDM and they shot great. I just ordered 3 more boxes. Very happy with this ammo. I will buy more when I'm out of the 1900 rounds I have left."

"I bought a case a couple weeks ago, and I'm impressed! This ammo fires, feeds, and performs just as well as the \"good stuff.\" Every round was clean and free of defects upon arrival, and at the range, it functioned flawlessly in my M&P 40 fullsize and compact. As for accuracy, it groups as well as you can shoot it. For excellent performance and cost, this is the ammo!"

"Heard good reviews and thought I would try them out. I ran 150 through my Springfield XDM today, and they shot great. I had no duds or jams. I will definitely buy again soon."

"I purchased a box of this ammo for range training fully expecting a few duds as I have found with most reloaded ammo that I have used in the past but I have fired all 500 rounds with out any problems and it was very good ammo. As soon as it is in stock I will be buying more."
5.0 5
"Great ammo!!! No FTF's or FTE's group's as well as you shoot. Rounds clean out of the box and fired cleanly also. Will buy lots more when available in FMJ and Hollow point."

"I went through about 250 rounds with my SIG P226, not a single problem. Not dirty either, burns clean. Buy this ammo."

"I am on my 2nd box of these, 1000 rounds, and not 1 dud or FTE with my Ruger P944. Great way to keep your range costs down and shoot more. You have to be quick, they sell out fast."

"Bought a box of this to test it out at the range and worked great and was pretty accurate. Only had 2-3 rounds that failed to eject after firing in my G27. Will buy again when back in stock!!!"
5.0 5
"I know it's written a lot but, this is great ammo for the money! I bought 1,000 rounds based off the reviews and the price. I put some rounds through my S&W 40cal Sigma. All fired with no smoke. In fact, when it came time to clean, it realy wasn't that dirty. I would definitely buy it again.Oh, and there realy is nothing, like 1000rnds show up on your door step!"

"I bought this online, got them a copy of my FOID using my camera phone and email, and the ammo shipped that day. I had it in 2 days to Illinois. Took the ammo to a range (outdoors with quite a bit of dust and dirt). Using my new Springfield XD 40 Service Pistol I also bought from CTD (for a great price, saved me about $150), I fired 500 rounds of this ammo without a single glitch. On top of that, I also fired some range ammo by another popular range ammo company and the accuracy comparison was dramatic. BVAC FMJ was giving me, a novice shooter, grouping of 4 - 6 inches at 10yds where the more name brand was hard to get any groupings within a 12\" diameter at the same range. I will buy this ammo regularly and know that I can count on it 99% of the time."

"I purchased a box of 500 and fed it to my hungry Glock G22. It loved it. Not one problem! I would not hesitate to purchase another box!"

"I ordered 2 boxes of these a while back when they finally became available and I have been very satisfied. Shooting this out of my Springfield XD, so far I have had ZERO issues with 500 rounds of this ammo. No failures at all. I have tried 3 different kinds of reloads and so far this is the best. It fires when I pull the trigger, and it hits where I aim, even though I\uFFFDm not a great shot. I will buy this again when it becomes available, hopefully before California comes up with more ridiculous anti gun and ammo laws."

"How can you not love the most inexpensive and desirable rounds on the site? This stuff is always out of stock for a reason. I live in CA, so I'm taking advantage of this stuff while I can. These are reloads. I see Speer, Federal, Winchester, Blazer and a couple off-brand casings I don't recognize. Anyone that complains that these are a bit \"dirty\" are being too finicky. You should be cleaning your gun after every trip to the range anyhow, so whether they're dirty or not, I would hope you come home to do a thorough cleaning regardless. Personally, I love to field strip and clean my weapon and always be familiarized with it. You should too. Enjoy these reliable rounds while you can. They're scarce on the site. When they become available, they're gone within hours."
4.0 5
"I agree with previous posters about ammo being dirty, but I have put 250 rounds through my M&P40C with no FTF or FTE. I actually think Winchester white box is dirtier. Great value for the price."
4.0 5
"very good deal. i had no misfires or ftf w/ this ammo at all. Not that dirty. I usually clean my gun after every shoot anyhow. great ammo for the price. I checked many websites and CTD has the best prices!"
4.0 5
"I put 500 rounds through my S&W MP40C with no issues at all. I got reasonable groups at 7 and 10 yds. I checked each round for oddballs based on previous posts. I found it to be cleaner than WWB. I have already reordered. This is the best price for .40 S&W range ammunition I have found."
4.0 5
"Seems to be decent quality. I've only shot around 200 rounds so far through my Kel-tec Sub 2000, accuracy seems good for the range, no failures to speak of either, which is surprising, because my sub 2000 isn't broken in yet and I was expecting a stove pipe at some point. Ammo is dirty compared to other stuff I've shot, and it's a little smoky, but for the price, I'm not complaining at all. Overall 4.5/5"

"Good range ammo - Burns clean - No misfires - Bright and clean - Will buy again"

"Glad I was able to snag this ammo when it became available. You just can beat the price. Shipped to my door in 3 days just south of Chicago. Fired 100 rounds with my SW99, had no FTE or FTF, decently accurate as well! Yes it does shoot a little \"dirty,\" but you should be doing a good cleaning once you get home."
5.0 5
"Just about through my first box of 500. I had to backorder the stuff because it's never in stock. Started with BVAC buying several boxes of 50 180gr JHP and FMJ. This stuff is excellent range ammo. Can you load them for 23 cents a bullet? No mis-feeds nor FTF rounds in my Glock 23. Only problem is CTD needs to keep this stuff in stock!"
4.0 5
"I ran 300 rounds through my XD without a single issue.Not as accurate as my regular ammo, but certainly within acceptable tolerances.Will buy again"
4.0 5
"I put all 500 threw my H&k P2000 in one range visit with no problems at all. I feel like they where accurate. They are as dirty as you would expect a range reload to be. They made the outside of my pistol scuzzy and the inside remained pretty clean. I give them a 4 out of 5 because this deal is often out of stock the bullets did their job 5 out of 5."
5.0 5
"I was a little hesitant to buy this at first. I went to the range and fired 200 rounds through my Glock 23, zero FTF, zero FTE. They group decently. I would buy this again."
5.0 5
"Random brass as expected, but zero problems and clean enough for the girls I ride with. burned though 500 rounds in a day with my Glock 22 without a hitch. 100% satisfied with this batch of 40 cal FMJ (April/May 2011) Wish I could say the same for the BVAC 9mm, I had one fat casing that jammed my gun so bad I had to the go the smithy. But the 40 cal FMJ worked flawlessly. Will by more!"
4.0 5
"Good Ammo, Never malfunctioned. Just takes sometime to recieve, but that was expected. Thats the only reason I gave it 4 stars. I will order more in the future"
4.0 5
"I have gone thru about 350 or 400 so far and no ftf or fte. (using USP .40 fullsize) Only down side to this ammo is its very dirty and shot are inconsistent. Will buy again, can't complain for the price."
3.0 5
"I recenetly went through a box of BVAC JHP 180 and thought I would give the FMJ a try becuase it's a little cheaper. This was by far the dirtiest ammo I've ever run through my XDM-40. After 100 rounds my forearms were covered with so much soot and carbon you would have thought I just cleaned a chimney. Okay a chimney is an exaggeration but you get the idea. So far there were zero FTF or FTE but I can't imagine that would continue if I shot 200-300 rounds without a mid-session, quick cleaning."
5.0 5
"I bought 500 rounds of this ammo and shot probably 300 of it so far, all I can say is I was so pleased with it that I bought another 1,000 rounds of it... This ammo is great!! It seems to be very clean and I have never had a jam or misfire compared to other brands of ammo I have bought. I use this in my Walther p99 and LOVE it. I will be buying more and more of this ammo!!!!!"
5.0 5
"I just bought my first box of this ammo. I have shot up about 1/2 the box. So far I have enjoyed it very much. Clean, accurate and consistent at a reasonble price. I wish I could avoid the shipping cost. The casings are not all pure brass though. I would guess that about 10 to 20 percent are nickel-plated, which is fine. They all fire smoothly and jam free. I like this ammo more than the Winchester loads I have been buying at Walmart. Can't wait to order more!"
5.0 5
"I bought 500 rounds of this and 500 rounds of the hollow point....I have to say the reviews where dead on ...fantastic ammo, probably the best I have used in a long time. NO jams, I pushed 300 thru so far and love it! ONLY PROBLEM...these are always out of stock! Someone needs to fix that."
2.0 5
"Ammo shoots clean; cleaner than Winchester white-box by far. However these loads seem to be VERY hot compared to all other range ammo I've shot. These shoot more like +P or something like Cor Bon 135gr (very hot). I've shot about 500-700 rounds so far out of a Glock 27, 22 and 23 and have had quite a few FTF/FTE (at least two dozen) in both pistols (stock). I usually have a very tight pattern shooting, and both me and others started shooting fairly erratically and noticed the bullets tumbling when hitting the target (too high powered load for the bullet). In summary, will NOT buy these again!"
5.0 5
"I am a first time user of this ammo and have to say its great for the money. I had 1 FTF out of 200 rounds. The primer was the issue. For practice you cant beat it."

"Consistent, clean, great price! I've gone through 1500 rounds with my Beretta PX4 Storm without a misfire. Great ammo. I was reluctant to write this review so I could keep this secret to myself! It's generally out of stock so I think the secret is out."
5.0 5
"Shot over 1500 rounds of this and 180 gr HP. No problems with Glock 23 gen 4. I will continue to buy this, but have had problems with BVAC 9mm 115 FMJ not sized right."

4.0 5
"Bought 500 round case for my xdm, shot about 120 rounds so far and it's good stuff, my xdm just kept begging for more and more. The best part is that it seems cleaner than the winchester I was shooting before. The only reason it's not a five bullet rating is that it's hardly ever in stock so the wait for more kinda suck, but will buy a couple cases when its available."

"Even with shipping no store can come close to this price. Saved .10cents a round."
5.0 5
"There were actually 508 rounds in my shipment...and out of 508 there were \"ZERO\" duds. My Sig ate these up like candy and they left far less mess. I was shocked at first how fast my order arrived, but after making several purchases since then, I've found out that's just how CTD does business. Good clean rounds, at a cheap price, and on my porch in under 2 days. Awesome."

4.0 5
"Not a bad deal for 500 rounds of ammo. Went through the entire case with NO failures to fire or extract. It was a little dirtier than \"quality\" ammo, but I clean after every range day anyway.(and it's not as dirty as some of the Russian ammo out there). I will buy again."

"Recieved my 500 round box today and fired all 500. Out of 500 I had about 12 jam ups, one of which had to be pryed out of chamber in the first 100 rounds. Did not have any misfires but Ammo was very dirty. Great price but will probably not use again."
5.0 5
"This is the way to buy ammo, I had seem a couple of reviews that guys said they had misfires or duds...but my first box of 500 was great no issues at all. For the savings of about 12 cents a round...really, this is the way to target practice or plunk some cans. However, be ready if you ever put NEW factory loads in! I loaded up with some Winchester SW40 out of the box and there was a significant kick difference. Otherwise I will buy these BVACs as long as I am able."
5.0 5
"This was my first time buying this stuff. I shot it through my brand new G23. It was a little bit dirty, but shot great,with no problems at all. I wish CTD could keep it in stock, and at this price!"
3.0 5
"I purchased this ammo based on its price. It is decent for target shooting, but I am frustrated with it. I purchased 2,000 rounds and have shot a few hundred at this point. Sadly, I have had too many primers fail to ignite. Yesterday, I shot about 50 rounds with a failure rate of about 20%. That is pretty poor in my mind. I'll see how the rest perform, and that will determine whether the price and performance are worth it again."
5.0 5
"Great for target shooting. I put about 250 rounds through my Beretta M96, and I haven't had a FTF yet. It seems to be just as good as Federal ammo. Big thanks to CTD for fast shipping. Ammo got to my door in 2-3 days in Florida."
4.0 5
"I have fired off 400 rounds so far without ANY issues! At this price (incl. shipping), these just can't be beat! I use a lot of rounds when target practicing, and at this price, I can shoot until my fingers bleed from reloading! CTD, keep up the great offers!"
5.0 5
"Bought another 1000 rounds. Shot the first 1000. No jams. Shot 300 rounds without cleaning. No jams no stove piping. Extra clean. Go get it."
5.0 5
"I've gone through 4 boxes (2,000 rounds) through my Beretta PX4 and haven't had a single misfire or failure to eject. It's no dirtier than WWB in my opinion. Personally, I find it cleaner. To those that find it to be dirty, you should be cleaning your weapon after every use whether you shoot 1 or 1,000 rounds anyway. Make it a habit and buy this stuff."
5.0 5
"This is a great deal, squeezed off 500 rounds with no jams, stove pipes, or corrosion. Buy when you can. I bought two cases of this last time."

"I think for the non-reloader, this is the best value out there for range ammo. At this price, you can't beat it. I put 300+ rounds of it through my XD 40 and M&P 40 sub-compact with no trouble whatsoever. Very accurate and clean. I wish you could keep it in stock. By far the best seen to date."
5.0 5
"This ammo is great. Shoots like any Winchester white box ammo I have used. As for having more or less power than other ammo, I don't see it.For the price, I can't wait for CTD to get more in stock."
5.0 5
"I would say for the price, this is great plinking ammo. Don't count on it to get you out of a tight spot, but it's probably just fine for anything else. Ideally, you practice with what you will be using. In a self defense situation, this isn't, or at least shouldn't be, the case with cheaper ammo. Practicing with this is far better than nothing."
4.0 5
"Went through my first 200 rounds this past weekend. Had one failure to fire. The other 199 had no problems whatsoever, my poor accuracy notwithstanding. Dirty? Maybe, but I clean my weapons, so it's not an issue.I'd recommend it and I'll buy again if I can grab it before it sells out!CTD service was great as always."
5.0 5
"This is the best ammo for the price I have found. I'm almost through my first box of 500 and haven't had any issues. If I had to complain, it would be about the accuracy, but it's exactly what I expect for target rounds."
5.0 5
"Just got home from shooting all 500 rounds in the span of only a few hours. Not a single FTF or FTE from the ammo. I only had one FTF but that was because of the magazine I was testing (20 round ProMag). I shot 95% of this ammo through my XD Service model and some through an XDM. Both handguns loved the rounds and had no jams. The ammo is a little dirty, but not enough to take off anything. After 500 rounds and no malfunctions from the ammo, I will definitely buy more when it is back in stock. Great deal for great range ammo."
4.0 5
"This ammo is a steal. I ordered it as soon as I saw it was available. Shot about 100 rounds through a Springfield XD-Subcompact with no issues. If you're wondering what kind of brass you're getting, it's a mix of mostly Federal, Winchester, and a few Speer cases. It's cleaner than the Federal I shoot on a regular basis. 4 bullets because it's never in stock."
1.0 5
"I purchased a small batch of this ammo and it funtioned well. However, I did not shoot it at any significant distance.I followed up that purchase with a large amount of this ammo. The first time I shot it at 25 yards, the results were abysmal. Most of the rounds were keyholed in the paper. They appear to be tumbling at any significant distance. The tumbling is also terrible for accuracy, as you would expect. I shot a 6 in group with Wolf and a 2ft group with this ammo. Some rounds dont even hit paper.This ammo is useless for any real training work."
4.0 5
"I went through around 450 rounds of this ammo in one sitting. No jams or malfunctions. I did notice some tumbling and accuracy issues at 25-35 yards. Great buy for a day of shooting, but would NOT use in every day load. Would purchase again."
4.0 5
"Out of 500 rounds, I had one failure to fire. Not bad for the price and it's just for the range any how. I have and will continue to buy this ammo for target practice, plinking, etc."

"This is my 3rd total box of this stuff, again no issues.Not made for sharpshooting, but its the perfect range / stockpile ammo."
5.0 5
"For the price, one cannot get a better value ! In the past (a previous purchase of a 500 round box) I had a few rounds 'keyhole' as did Sam (7/2012), but of the many boxes of 500 I've purchased, it was the only box that had examples of that. Any FTF/FTF/FTE issues have always been 'gun related', and did the same with fresh factory ammo. I can't reload this caliber with virgin brass for anything close to the cost of this ammunition."
5.0 5
"This is my first purchase from CTD. Bought this .40 cal target ammo. It was delivered very quickly, considering I took the cheapest shipping option. As soon as it arrived, I loaded a couple 15 round mags and went out to test it. It shot accurately and cleanly. I am very happy. This is the cheapest brass cased ammo I have seen and it worked great."
4.0 5
"For target shooting and plinking, this ammo is certainly worth the price. Just finished the box of 500 through my Sig SP2022 and not one failure to feed, stovepipe, or misfire. Only reason I did not give 5 bullets is because this ammo keyholes pretty reliably, even at only about 10 yards. At first, I thought I was just shooting really well (groupings were right on top of each other) until I realized it was just one bullet that had tumbled and made a hole that looked like 2 shots right on top of each other. I would still recommend this ammo to anyone looking for some cheap .40 (haha) but just be aware that it keyholes. Not a huge deal though. Enjoy"
5.0 5
"I have been using this ammo for the past 5 months, and have gone through 6000+ rounds in practice. I have had only one Type I malfunction with this ammo thus far (failure to fire). Shoots relatively clean. I actually find the bulk carton more convenient for long practice sessions on the range (easily portable, less trash to pick up). I can think of no negatives for this ammo, which is a first rate choice for a shooter who requires a large volume of practice ammo at a very reasonable price."
3.0 5
"I've had no Type 1 malfunctions and the gun has always cycled properly with the mag. However, I have experienced issues with the slide not locking back with the last round. This is for more than one mag, including a brand new one. It's not an issue with my thumb hitting the slide lock. Upon talking to the manufacturer (Glock), they think it's due to underpowered ammo because it's not kicking the slide back far enough or long enough for it to catch. I would agree with that because I recently replaced my recoil spring with a new one. Maybe after a little more break-in, I won't have any issues, but right now, I suspect this may be some inconsistency with the load or it's just slightly underpowered. YMMV"
5.0 5
"I have a Sig SP2022 .40 S&W. I went to the range today and put maybe half the box through my Sig without one single malfunction of the ammunition or my Sig. I even think my recoil spring is pretty beat and it still cycled every single round perfectly. I did not experience keyholes or ammo breaking. Only thing I noticed was out of all the brass in the box, I found random steel cased bullets. Not sure what that's about, but still worked perfectly. Will definitely order again! I ordered on a Wed. night, and I received the order Saturday morning. Perfect timing."
