    I found an actual good deal at Cheaper than Dirt, the first one I've seen there in ages -- Federal 9mm 115 grain +P+ JHPs for $19.59/box of 50. CDNN wants $24.99 and Cope's is asking $29.99.

    This is excellent carry ammo at a dang good price, even with $12 shipping.

    Drat, after I ordered from CTD, I see an outfit named Streichers.com has it for $17/box.

    Heck, maybe I could've keep shopping around and got it for free! :)

    That's about right -- here lately they've been Higher than S***, not Cheaper than Dirt.

    I see now that Streicher's is a GT sponsor. They have the stuff for $17/box. Anyone have any feedback from having done business with them?

    Yeah, I've felt for a long time that they need to change their company name to something more like 'Expensive as Hell'. :supergrin:

    Expensive as Hell

    Cheaper than Diamonds

    Cheaper than Gold

    Expensive as S***

    What the Hell


    All of these are more appropiate names compared for them.

    Yes Streicher's has it for $17 a box, but it's backordered and you'll probably wait a few months to receive it.

    $19.59 for in stock ammo, or $17 for backordered ammo. Only you can decide which is a better deal for you.

    Well, I didn't actually try to order any from Streicher's, since I'd already ordered it from CTD, so I didn't know about the backorder thing or the LEO restriction.

    If they only sell the +P+ to LEO's, that's silly. Any civilian can get a much more powerful load simply by purchasing a .357 SIG caliber firearm.

    I just ordered 2 boxes from CTD. It was $49/shipped. I have been wanting to test this ammo for awhile now. $20/50rds is a great price. I have only heard positive things about this ammo. I may have to get a few more boxes soon. I am currently using Corbon DPX 9mm+P, however I cannot afford to practice with it as much as I would like to. The Federal 9BPLE is inexpensive and I can shoot a box or two and not spend $60+.

    Mine was $51 shipped. It must cost 'em less to ship to Michigan than Oklahoma. Strange. But on the plus side, they shipped it out the same day I bought it.

    I just had 12 boxes of this stuff delivered to the house from them two weeks ago from them. I'm no LEO.

    They either changed their policy or someone at Streicher's fouled up. Who knows?

    Thanks for the info, Butch.

    2bgop: How much was shipping on 12 boxes of ammo?

    Unless you are neighbors the shipping amount will not be the same.

    Got the ammo today and shot a box of it through my G26 (would've shot more but the recent snowfall has left it muddy and yucky here). Perfect reliability, as I expected. Recoil was not noticeably greater than with standard velocity 115 grain JHP. And I only shot offhand at about 15 yards, but accuracy was not bad, either. POI did seem to be about an inch or so to the left of the standard stuff, for some reason.

    I'll shoot more of it soon, but my initial impressions are favorable.
