    Sumubok ka muna iputok ng mga 100 rds thru your primary gun, tignan mo kung walang palya sa pag-load. Kung sasabit lagi, di sya ok sa baril mo. Check mo din kung kaya mo ang palag ang baril para ma chk kung makaka multi shots ka on one target.

    Basta't walang palya ang putok at asinta, pwede na sya. Kung mushrooming ang gusto mo, pwede siguro mag donate ka ke doc EC. Pero sa kin, basta pumuputok, kahit tingga lang, deadly na yan. ;P

    Wag ka umasa sa expansion. Shot placement lang palagi

    Ditto what New_comer said about testing the reliability and controllability of the prospective ammo in your own carry gun. I can tell you that I've gone through about a hundred rounds of S&B 115gr JHP in my Glock 19 without a hitch, but that info will only be marginally useful to you since what works for one guy might not work for another. I haven't tried their subsonic rounds so I can't comment on those.

    Mbclubph,
    Any ammo can be reliable at a certain time of day and at a certain bed or position you woke up from. The best thing to do is always test the ammo you will be using on your particular gun. There are those who swear by the CZ's, 1911's, Glocks but even them sometimes exerience hiccups when loaded with a certain ammo. Personally, I've used Armscor on some of my pistols and I got good results. Some of my friends didn't. I like Corbon 9mms but some of my friends don't. Just my piso:)

    I've shot a LOT of S&B in .45ACP, 2000+ rounds of .223, and a couple of boxes of 9mm.

    The .45 is a bit on the dirty side, but it's very reliable, good quality stuff. I shoot mostly Armscor now, but only because it's significantly less expensive than S&B.

    The .223 was fine, but the 55gr has a mild steel jacket and will not fragment properly. It's okay for punching paper, but not acceptable for defensive use.

    I buy S&B by the case at the gun show. $90.00 per case (1,000) for 9MM and $140.00 per case for .45. That's $4.50/box for 9MM and $7.00/box for .45. I thought about reloading, but at these prices, why bother... Can't even recall how many thousands S&B I have shot with zero malfunctions (knocking on wood). Dirty? Of course it's dirty, so is PMC, WWB, CCI, etc. That's why I make it a habit of cleaning my firearms after every range sessions.

    Where are you getting S&B .45 for $140 per case? I rarely go to gun shows, but if it's similar pricing in Indiana at shows, I may be willing to change.

    I was getting Armscor for $145 per thousand, but it's gone up to $157.

    Dirty ammo should be the least of our concern. I heard that there are some 'flawed' batches that are loaded to +P [or sometimes beyond] pressures. Just can't confirm veracity though.

    Ka trade ko lang two months ago nang S B .223 55 grainers. Grey steel cased ammo in 140 rd box . Hindi ko pa nasubukan sa WASR 3 ko. Yung Silver Bear 55 gr FMJ are really accurate on mine. 62 grs ok lang pang plinking.
