    Mas,

    I know you hold the Federal 9mm 115 gr JHP or stock # 9BP in high regard as an old but reliable load in standard velocity.

    Is the XM9001 in 50 round Federal Classic boxes the same ammo?

    Thank, Jack

    Jack, I apologize for the three-week wait. Folks at Federal have apparently been very busy. They just got back to me today and confirmed that it is, for all practical intents and purposes, the same load.

    Appreciating your patience,

    Mas

    Mas,

    Appreciate your staying on top of this for so long. Glad to hear it is the same stuff. How something is "packaged" can certainly affect its price. Even at times on the same website.

    Thanks again. Jack
