    Found this online fairly cheap and am obviously interested. I shoot with a G19 Gen 4, "fixed" by glock. Now I fire 115gr CCI Blazer Aluminum ammo and I get shoddy ejection, the guys at the range said its because of being only a 115gr and aluminum expanding differently and all.

    I want to try the MBI 9mm 124gr (remanufactured), anyone using this stuff in their Glocks? Just looking for feedback before I buy.

    I ended up at Walmart and left with 10 boxes of Federal Champion 115gr. This time it's brass, well see if it ejects better out of the gen4 than aluminum.

    That Federal stuff at Wally World is very weak. You would be much better off with the WWB. I picked up a 1000 rounds of Sellier and Bellot from Cabela's for 9.99 per box of 50 with free shipping. I put a 100 rounds through it yesterday and it's pretty snappy ammo for range stuff. VERY happy with it and the deal. I'm going to go back to their website and if it's still the same deal, I'll grab another 3000 rounds or so.

    I've read that its a bit weaker than some others but haven't heard of many issues running it.

    WWB or Wolf or some of the NATOish surplus is about all I shoot.

    Just a quick update, got through 100 rounds of this (Federal Champion 115gr 9mm). No FTE, FTF, no squibs, and solid ejection with a firm grip.

    The Fed. Champ. 115 gr. FMJ has been 100% in every respect from my Beretta 92FS. Haven't noticed it being less powerful, etc. POA is POI at normal distancs... 7, 10, 12, 15, 20, 25 yds.

    I've shot a couple thousand rounds of federal champion 115 fmj out of my G19 no problems whatsoever. It's way cleaner than Winchester white box. I personally prefer it as a good practice ammo.
