    I was just there and they had some 9mm 124g ammo labeled "RWS". It said Switzerland on the side of the box. The kicker was that it was $16.97 for a box of 50 FMJ !!! A bit steep.

    Anyone heard of this ammo?

    I think there are 4 other posts or more on this. Its very pricey and some people have said theres JHP and match grade. Either way its too much for range ammo.

    I'd like to have some 9mm range ammo now that the weather's warmer but I'm not paying through the nose for it.

    Premium JHP self-defense ammo is coming down from what it was over the past year and I expect range ammo will too. If we all go on a voluntary boycott for a month or two the availability/price problem will solve itself.

    Shot some today. Very clean and pretty accurate.

    Do I think the price is justified for blasting holes in paper? Not really.
