    Anyone here use the 9MM loads from Buffalo Bore? I have searched and couldnt find anything about what people had experienced with these loads, So I figured I would make a thread. I know they use Gold Dots, and use low-flash powder. I like the specs on their 9MM's, anyone here ever shot any of this stuff?

    Bought a 50 round box once... 124 +P+, really hot, made for harder follow-up shots (a major selling point for the 9mm), I bet it would likely expand more and penetrate less than standard 124 +p. Kinda expensive for what it is... I won't be buying any more of it.

    DT's 147 +p is a better choice if you are looking for some kick *** 9mm.

    I'll give you my take on it FWIW... I was suggesting BB to folks at one time. Probably never again.

    We drove all the way into Ft. Worth Saturday to Cabela's to shop around . I wanderd away from the wife and ended up where else? in the reloading/ammo dept. I thought I might check out some of the factory offerings. I looked at the BB for 9mil. One box said 124gr JHP +P+ I opened it up and took a look. They WERE NOT Gold Dots, no they were GENERIC. Looked a whole lot like the bullet that WW uses in their WWB 45acp's. Same exact style. I opened another box of BB 124gr JHP +P+ under neath the first box, and it was loaded with Montana Gold !

    Moral of story. No thanks ! I have noticed so many manufactures going down hill in their offerings of late. I am glad I reload. BTW, I have decided after seeing all the crap offered out there, I will carry my own reloads "for the most part" in 'most all' my SD guns.



    Good Luck
