still have 1500 or so of this ammo that I purchased last year. I guess I'll keep it for competition only and shoot the cheaper 115/124 stuff for practice. The 147 gr Federal is dependable, feeds and cycles well in our XDM 5.25 9mm's with no issues. Soft recoil compared to 115 or 124. once the price drops by half, I'll buy somemore. (Posted on 6/15/13)

Talk about service. I ordered this ammo Tuesday and received it on Friday. Bravo Zulu Bulk Ammo. I have had no problems with this ammo, it is a little dirty but for the price you can't complain. (Posted on 12/10/12)

Cheap ammo that cycles through my Glock, but so does everything else. This a dirty ammo so make sure all your cleaning supplies are ready after your range session. Overall, not bad. I will spend a few more bucks for a cleaner ammo next go around. (Posted on 11/29/12)

I ordered 1,000 rounds of this ammo Thursday afternoon after 2 pm. It arrived today, Friday, just after noon! Less than 24 hours. I dare anyone else to beat that for service. The ammo is as advertised and I shot 50 rounds this afternoon with no problems with my G19. Don't be fooled by others who say they have ammo in stock but really don't. BulkAmmo.com is the ONLY place to buy ammo from. Their customer service people are there if you need them as well. Keep up the good work BulkAmmo.com! (Posted on 10/5/12)

I shoot competitions and need a round that is reliable, affordable, and accurate. This meets all those requirements. I always feel tempted shoot the lighter cheaper bullets but the 147 gr. seems to cycle the gun smoother and better every time. I have run 4,000+ of this through my P226 without a single malfunction, while I used to have malfunctions every 200-300 rounds or so with the lighter cheaper rounds. (Posted on 9/15/11)

Q: I notice this brand has the highest amount of grains. However, I am ignorant as to what the grains are and what kind of advantage 147 grains would have over most of the other brands which show on average of being 115 grains.

Posted On: 10/19/11 By: Amanda Hepworth

A: Those grain numbers refer to bullet weight. There are 7000 grains in a pound, so a 147 grain bullet weighs about 1/3 of an ounce. The advantage of this 147gr FMJ ammunition is that it recoils exactly like 147gr hollowpoints, while 115gr ammo might have a slightly different recoil impulse. Also, this heavier bullet is traveling slower. It is actually traveling under the speed of sound, while almost all 115s are traveling above the speed of sound. For most people, this doesn't matter, but if you ever use a sound suppressor (silencer), the lack of the sonic "crack" will make the ammo much quieter.
Q: Would the heavier weight bullet be sufficient for self defense?

Posted On: 10/5/11 By: Dave

A: Yes, 147gr 9mm ammunition is sufficient for self defense. It would be recommended to use a jacketed hollow point for that purpose, wherever legal. Because of the projectile's design, 9mm full metal jacket ammunition of all bullet weights will perform in an almost identical manner against soft targets.
Q: What is the muzzle velocity of this ammo from a 4 inch barrel?

Posted On: 9/27/11 By: Brad

A: From a 4" barrel, this Federal 9mm ammunition should chronograph at approximately 950fps. This may vary depending on your firearm.
