    BOGs Bros.,

    good day sirs. i've been using fmj ammos since the first time i went to the range with my gun. the output and the mental aspect of using good factory ammo is there; but the price seems to hurt the more i practiced. i've read from various threads here that it is not a burden to use reload ammos as long as you have reliable and tested sources. i browsed sir horge's firearms directories :50cal:(thanks sir) and settled for two stores which are near my work here in sucat, parañaque. they are: TRUE POWER from muntinlupa and PRACTICAL SHOOTER SUPPLY along parañaque road. may i ask if any of you have already used their respective reloads for 9mm? any comments on the performance? both stores have very reasonable prices. P6 for teflon heads and PSS says they have what they called a TMJ(total metal jacket ) reload for P7. any stores you can recommend. i usually shoot in armscor mcs, but have'nt tried their reloads; what about them? thanks.

    use of plated/coated reloads is a must in indoor ranges.

    you can't use lead bec. of possible lead poisoning/contamination.

    if you have the funds, go for the tmj or fmj. the price for the teflon is reasonable but it gives off a bad smell when fired.

    Yup, took Dr, Johnny Nanagas - former DOH unsecretary and an ophthalmologist like you - and a shooter like you - to the old (indoor) Northstar, and he did make a comment about their providing (at that time) noncoated, naked lead-bullet reloads.

    The ventilation was pretty bad in those days too.

    i suggest you shoot in an open range,. lead levels mo tataas sa indoor range(baaad)

    Lito owns true power and ok dapat ang reloading niya or puputaktihin namin siya ng asar:supergrin:

    i heard from other local shooters that glocks are sensitive and prone to jammings when fired from reloaded ammos. so if armscor fmj reloads are doing well on glocks, i guess there will be no problem at all with my tanfoglio. :cool:

    copy sir. but with my wife's State of Emergency Address; a state of martial law is prevailing in our house right now :supergrin: . over spenders will be prosecuted and will be thrown out of the room anytime:outtahere:. so i have to find the means to cut down my shooting expenses.
    BTW sir; this bad smell coming from the teflon reloads, does it cause any medical problem when prolonged inhalation occurs? thanks.

    Not only Glocks. If your reloaded ammos are not within specs it will give you problems.

    Budget consideration.....

    don't forget about the 2 pesos corkage if you bring your own bullets on an indoor range.

    Lead realoads from PSS (True Weight) are too soft and their teflon is too thin, they scratch off easily. Their TMJ's are pretty good. Also, tell them to clean your shells as they wouldn't if you don't specify it.

    OT: Sir, since you're near the Sucat area. Try to check out our Gun Club and indoor firing range, CPPSA at 25 Presiden't Ave, BF. We have reasonably priced reloading services too for members. ;)

    thanks for the info sir. actually i reside in makati but work here in sucat, given the time, i'll drop by in your range. personally sir thanks sa leather buffer tip which i am now using during dryfire. i made three from my old jeans' leather patch, bore a hole in it and i'm on. to make sure na makapal pa yung leather that i'm using, nilalagyan ko ng pentel pen marking yung firing pin head, para alam ko na di inaabot ng hammer slam. :cool: :cool:

    When I asked Karen before, she told me that even members have to pay the corkage.


    Last Sunday, I tried using Armscor's FMJ reloads, kelangan lang e-gauge, out of 150, 35 are buntis...papalitan naman nila.

    To make sure the hammer isn't striking the firing pin, with the leather swatch in place point the gun upwards (assuming you have already cleared it), insert a pencil eraser end first into the barrel then squeeze the trigger. If the pencil does not move upward, the hammer isn't striking the firing pin. ;)
