9mm 115 GR JHP in middle TN

Recommended Posts

Independence 9mm 115 GR JHP, a full case of 1000 for $294 delivered. That's only $0.29 per round or $14.70 per box of 50.

This stuff is on sale at Bud's, but I don't need quite that much. Anyone in Lebanon or middle TN area want to split a case with me?

1000rds - 9mm Federal Champion 115gr. FMJ RN Ammo[/url] $254.95
($0.26/ppr plus shipping for $20
Also some even less

OK. I think you are overlooking that we are talking about JHP ammo here (that's hollow point for defensive use), which is much more expensive. The cheapest 9mm JHP ammo on that site is $0.40 per round plus shipping, so Bud's is much better deal at $0.29 per round shipped, and it's new manufacture, brass cased boxer primed non-corrosive fully reloadable.

If I just wanted target ammo I'd simply reload my own (I'm a reloading instructor), so I'm buying some JHP for defense use at the lowest price I've ever seen for such ammo. Edited by wileecoyote

Don't do it.  Buy from Freedom Munitions.  Your first order has free shipping.  Follow this link.  If I hadn't bought up so many cases of Perfecta, I'd give it a go. 

 

$234 for 1000 for 115 grain HP or $243 for 124 grain HP,

Those are plated hollow points though, not jacketed.

I would be in for a few boxes out of the case, but not the entire half case since I am trying to buy a rifle scope now.

Seems like apples to oranges again. Freedom is remanufactured, mixed case lots, but the deal from Bud's on Independence is newly manufactured.

Not all of it is.  The prices I quoted are new NOT remanufactured.  Is there a issue with jacketed verses plated?

Their site has the remanufactured label and disclaimers all over it, and warns that their cases are mixed nickel and brass reloads (likely from range scrap). I do see where it says the word "new" on the ammo that you linked to, but the detailed description doesn't confirm it as new manufacture so I'd have to talk with someone there to be sure.

But even if the Freedom deal was new ammo and free shipping, it's still not worth it for plated bullets which cannot be pushed to higher velocities for defense, and they leave more fouling in the bore. Jacketed bullets are best for defense, and cleaner, which is what I want.

So unless someone can show me a cheaper deal on newly manufactured, brass cased, boxer primed, non-corrosive, fully reloadable JHP ammo for less than $0.29 per round INCLUDING shipping, then my original post stands and I'm likely going to grab 1 or 2 cases depending on how many people want to split it.

I bought from Freedom once had two or three out of 50 were miss loaded mostly rammed in and some bulging case , Once was the last, very tempted on JHP .

 

I've shot about 400 rounds of FM 9mm reloads, thru a couple of Glocks and my PPQ. No issues whatsoever.

 

In fact, I thought they were a little better than some factory target ammo I've used. This batch was definitely cleaner than some I've shot.

 

But in the end, it is a reload, and it is for range play only. Not for carry/defensive purposed.

 

And since my Shields, yes plural, like 124 gr. loads better than 115, I'm going to try the HP rounds in them.

I have shot thousands of rounds of freedom ammunitions, 9mm, 45 acp and 38 special never had one issue. I have used both their New and reloaded ammo. The ammo was all range ammo not self defense. Self defense ammo is always major ammo brands and always jhp.

That said, I don't think wileecoycote wanted this thread to be a discussion on ammo manufacturer's brands. Edited by Joe357

Ok folks, we have 1 3/4 cases spoken for. Last call before I place the order. FYI - I can accept PayPal or credit card if you pay their fee, or cash in person. I plan to order this week and will be available to meet in or near the Lebanon area in approximately 2 weeks once the ammo has arrived.

Ok guys, here is the recap of the split:

HIPOWER: 500 rounds
BUD: 500 rounds
REDCHIEF_223: 500 rounds
JONATHON1289: 250 rounds
KIM: 250 rounds
LEE: 150 rounds
WILEECOYOTE: 850 rounds

I expect the ammo to arrive early this week but I'll be unavailable to meet until next week at the earliest depending on my hectic schedule.

You can pay me cash in person when we meet, or if you want to use PayPal that's ok too. Just make sure you PM me with your phone number and I'll call or text you to schedule a meet as soon as I have the ammo and am open to get together. Edited by wileecoyote

The ammo has arrived guys, and it is VERY nice, even better than I expected. It uses Federal cases, and the JHP appears to be identical to the projectiles on my Winchester Ranger or Speer Lawman ammo. Here's a few pics...

All ammo is spoken for, with the following members on the waiting list in case anyone backs out:
- CIRCLEG
- TSPRINT1
- GGFLYGUY

I will be tied up for a week or so, but will call each of you when I free up and have time to meet. If you haven't already done so, please PM me your phone number.

      Have decided now is as good as time as any to sell a few of the guns I have accumulated over the years - starting with those I rarely if ever shoot.  Will try to post an ad here - the mechanics of this forum are new to me so please be patient if I mess up with the pictures or protocols.
      First up is my HK P7 M8 in 9mm.  I  bought this gun "new" back in the early 90s and its sat in my safe pretty much the entire time.  The reason I say "new" is that its one of the West German police trade ins that were refurbished by HK to like new and put on the market in a new box  As such it doesn't garner the full premium many P7s do nowadays, but its still a genuine HK P7 in nice shape  and still rare as hens teeth.  It comes with the original box with matching serial numbers, original brush and scraper, original manual, and the 2 original mags.  The box is flawless.  The manual has some oil stains on it from setting on top of the gun in the case.  The gun itself has a slight mark near the muzzle on one side where it sat on the hard plastic divider in the box for 20 years, plus it has a slight discoloring in the bluing on the  rear of the slide, which is typical for these WG trade ins as they reblued them in kind of a funky plum color.  If you are unfamiliar with the P7 its a really cool gun.  It utilizes a squeeze cocker type action, along with a delayed gas blowback, and a fixed barrel.  All of this combines to make the gun extremely accurate and soft shooting, although being an all steel handgun its a little heavy compared to something like a Glock.
      The price is $1600 face to face within reasonable driving distance to Wilson County, and must have TN HCP and do the bill of sale thing.  Alternatively the price is $1635 (USPS money order) plus actual shipping costs to ship from my FFL to yours.   
      Now, hopefully I can figure out the picture posting thing....

      I got this about 5 years ago from my uncle. He got it sometime in the 40's that's all I know about the history of it.
      From the S/N I would say it was made sometime in mid 1885.
      I would say it has about 95%+ of the nickel still on it and the barrel looks great for something this old.
      I'm asking $600 and that is because the barrel looks better than any one of these I have ever seen.

      Trades Something in .40 S&W not a Glock please but I'm open to other things
