I highly recommend this ammo, I just go back from deployment and grid it on my glock 22 gen3 and it works fine. No jams, no miss fire's, & no problems at all. So who ever is saying they have problems using it with a glock 22 might wanna clean your weapon. (Posted on 7/15/14)

If you're going to the range to practice hammer pairs and failure drills, this ammo is a good buy. It was on sale when I bought it, and beat the price of local shops by 4-5 dollars for 50 rounds. It works for that. Not the cleanest ammo, but I've shot worse. (Posted on 6/9/14)

I have purchased over 4k rounds of this ammo and have fired all of it without one incident. I would have to say that for as much as I shoot and the time I spend at the range this ammo is good. I have several handguns in many calibers and my 40 and my 9 are my most carried. I would recommend this ammo for targets and practice but I carry other ammo when im on the street. nuff said.....

I have 3k+ rnds of this ammo thru my S&W M&P 40cal w/ no problems whatsoever. The GSR is minimal & clean up is easy. I typically fire from 250-400 rnds per session. The only problems I have experienced are the pouches sometimes burst inside the shipping box (the ole 'if it's heavy, it must be strong enough to throw around' syndrome by the shiippers ;-), & in one case the box was slightly split & lost 1 rnd. Bulk Ammo was kind enough to replace- very good service! Last 2 shipments no issues. (Posted on 4/23/14)

Figured I would try out your ammo after reading all of the positive reviews. The first 100 rounds or so went well, then at about 110 I end up with a barrel swell on pistol that is 6 weeks old and till this point has only been fired twice for a total of 500 rounds down range. I would advise against using this ammo (Posted on 4/21/14)

I put about 1200 rounds of this stuff through my Glock model 22 in the police academy. I had only one misfire out of the entire order. This ammo helped me pass the academy with flying colors. I can't complain at all. Also, the ammo is not super dirty either. It is a little dirtier than the more expensive ammo, but it is not too bad. I always give my gun a good cleaning after a day at the range so it wasn't a big deal. Overall, I give this ammo the "good deal" stamp. (Posted on 3/7/14)

Don't waste your time buying this. It isn't even that great of a bargain. Spend the extra few dollars and get some quality ammo. Many of these rounds came in poor shape. I had a squib from this stuff... luckily I know what a squib feels/ sounds like so I was able to fix it before I blew my gun up.

Bottom line, feed your baby the best ammo and this isn't it. (Posted on 2/23/14)

I usually only buy ammo in bulk so as you might expect I haven't bought much in the last two years. With prices starting to be somewhat reasonable again I thought I'd replenish my stock of practice ammo and this looked to be just the thing. Ordered from Bulk Ammo.com late Monday night (Tuesday) and had the ammo on my doorstep Thursday afternoon, amazing customer service and speed for ground shipping. Went to the range and ran about 100 rounds through a variety of .40 handguns and it all functioned perfectly. This definitely an order I'll repeat once I've replenished stock in other calibers.

After purchasing this and firing approximately 500 of 1000, I encountered a major issue that the manufacturer and I will discuss. I fired these in a p229 dak .40. While some needed to be struck twice to fire they all largely worked with the exception of one bullet that turned into a squib round, lodging itself in the barrel. Had I chosen to cycle and proceed things could have turned out much worse since a round would have chambered. This one problem is causing me to need a new barrel and with that, I will never purchase this again! (Posted on 1/9/14)

I ordered 1000 rounds during my deployment so when I got home I could get right to shooting my .40 XDM. So far I have shot over 500 rounds with zero issue. My gun is a little dirtier than normal, but that's probably due to the amount I'm shooting at the range. The rounds are great, dependable, and the price is worth it. I will continue to buy from BulkAmmo. (Posted on 10/16/13)

I bought a thousand of these a year ago, and have so far fired about 500. No misfires or misfeeds to date. And no steel casings - just a few nickel coated brass that could be mistaken for steel. I'd say they're no cleaner or dirtier than any other round. I'd certainly purchase again and plan to - just hoping against hope that the price will drop closer to what I paid for them originally. But those days are probably gone. (Posted on 9/30/13)

At the time I bought the 1000 rounds this was about all I could find at a decent price. Well I am here to tell you I have cycled 500 rounds through my S&W MP40 and I have one round that did not fire. I will take that any time. I read about shipment issues with this ammo and I have to say my 1000 rounds arrived perfectly. Not one of the 10 bags was broken. This is as good as anything I have ever bought and it groups just fine on the range. Let’s face it is practice ammo; I am not trying to shoot Nation Match with it. (Posted on 7/24/13)

Dangerously damaged brass right out of the box
Review by Mark
Reliable?
Ammo Performance
Bargain?
Purchased a total of 10,000 MBI rounds. I opened the first bag to begin filling magazines and noticed a single steel casing in with 99 brass casings. Fortunately I'm curious and I picked it up because I saw that the side of the casing was burned completely through all the way down to within a hair's width of the bottom of the projectile. If I had fired the bullet it would have exploded in the chamber and certainly caused me injury. I called Bulkammo to report it and looked carefully for any other steel casings in the other bags from that box.
The next day at the range I was firing these bullets and they seemed fine, no failures in the first 4-5 magazines.
Then I fired a round, the shell ejected perfectly and I squeezed the trigger to fire again. Click. I thought I had a dud, looked at my Glock22 Gen4 and see the slide is not fully forward. Dropped the magazine, ejected the faulty round and see that the casing was not even close to round. The edge of the casing caught as it left the magazine and the slide's momentum scraped and tore the brass out of place by 1/16" +/-.
Scared the hell out of me. Another bullet that would have exploded in the chamber if I had managed to hit it with the striker. My partner was shooting the same MBI rounds-I showed him what happened and we emptied every magazine right there to detail inspect each bullet. Right away I found a third casing that would have exploded. This one was missing a deep half moon of brass from the edge. It wasn't down deep enough for powder to escape but only by a hair.

We packed up and called it a day. I emailed customer service and got an immediate and concerned response. The issues I encountered are very strange and I offered to send multiple pictures of all 3 bullets. Once the photos were seen there was no hesitation, I was asked to return all 10,000 rounds. FedEx picked them up on Friday May 17th. Once MBI receives the shipment I will be offered a full refund or credit, whichever I choose.

Summary-3 dangerously defective casings in the first 200 rounds. The 100+ rounds I fired were just fine but I didn't want to lose my hand, or worse, due to an exploding shell.
This must be an anomaly. MBI is aware of it and I hope they can locate the cause and fix it ASAP.
Be safe! (Posted on 5/22/13)

Despite overboxing, 9 of 10 bags were broken and spilled inside the box. 1000 rounds is probably too heavy for the air-filled 100 round bags of ammo. The packaging would be better off not pressurising individual bags and wrapping with bubble wrap. Not a big deal for me since I was going to dump them in a 50 cal can anyhow. No duds or extraction problems so far in my xdm 5.25. Will buy again. (Posted on 1/13/13)

Not sure why those next to last 3 reviews had so much problems w/ this ammo? I've now gone thru 2k, 40cal rds w/ no FTF, FTE, or extraordinary residue problems. I have both S&W M&P std & the S&W shield- no problems. They may want to perform, or have someone perform a teardown for wear?? The only issue I had was the last shipment was damaged like a previous reviewer- two bags were busted & lost 4 rds somewhere in transit.

Save your money! multiple duds in the first 100 rounds... I'm surprised it punched a whole in the paper target. For $1 per 100, blaser brass is a better bang for your buck! If you add up the wasted rounds, it would have been cheaper to practice with double tap!

The ammo was way under powered. I chronograph on round at 460 FPS, most were in the 680-690 FPS range. (Posted on 12/4/12)

Bought 1000 rounds based on online review of ammo. After having shot 400 rounds I have had 2 malfunctions, one of which looks due to a over crimped shell. What I am more disappointed in is the extremely light load these bullets are manufactured with. The recoil on both a Glock 23 and S&W shield 40 is about half that of the Remington FMJ range ammo. Since the price is only about $40-60 more per 1000, I would buy the factory ammo over there reloads. (Posted on 10/29/12)

Out of 200 rds I had 31 failure to feed , 8 failure to eject , and 6 that were duds .... So nearly 25% of the rounds I bought were crap !!!! And don't even get me started on how dirty this ammo is .... My firearms have never been so encased with carbon !! To me hours to get them cleaned and back to display quality !!! Never again .... For 10 cents more I could have bought Winchester target rounds and never would have had this problem !!!

The ammo shot well. I was surprised when I opened the box it was shipped in, several of the bags holding the ammo were opened, from the condition of the outside of the box (which looked as though it had been dropped or tossed around more than once) would explain why several bags were split open.
I wish Bulk Ammo would pack these rounds better, I'm sure the weight of 1,000 rds. of .40 S&W had to be handled a few times before reaching my door step but, for the cost of these rounds I shouldn't complain. I'm just saying! (Posted on 9/3/12)

I've used MBI in 40, 9mm and 10mm; probably over 1500 rounds without a single FTF/FTE. It's also been as accurate as any PD ammo I've used. The only drawback is how dirty it is. After 50 rounds, every exposed surface inside my gun is caked with residue. If you are shooting over 150 or so at a time, I'd stop and clean before proceeding.

Do yourself a favor and load up on a single purchase, the shipping is almost a non-factor when you spread it across a giant order. (Posted on 7/6/12)

No mishaps at all, great reloaded rounds! However I recently found .40 S&W cheaper at Walmart. When I divided it out, it was about 0.5 cents cheaper per round, including the shipping from this online order. That being said, I would rather my money go here than Walmart. (Posted on 5/3/12)

This is the third 1000 round case I have bought from this sight, and this set was the worst by far. The rounds were super dirty, would catch out of the clip with both my XD 40 as well as my Baby Desert Eagle. After 500 rounds I had to clean my gun just to cut down on the catching. For the 20 bucks extra I prefer the cases of Blazer. (Posted on 1/25/12)

I found your reloaded 40 S&W great . No problem what so ever with your 40's
My only complaint is the shipping charge to get 1000 rounds of 40 cal to California.
Your basic price is more than fair, but Fed Ex is expensive! My Sig 226 devoured
the 1000 rounds without a single problem. (Posted on 1/3/12)

Bought a G22 Glock and upgraded the barrel to a Lone Wolf.
One out of every 10 will feed properly. Won't chamber. Researched
It and found out that L.W. barrels are tighter than the stock. Not that
it is bad but the reloads flare out about three quarters to the end
and won't chamber. They will load through the factory barrel. (Posted on 7/17/11)

I've cycled several hundred rounds through my M&P 40 with no problems at all. It is more accurate than I am.
I'll probably be buying more of this soon.
Reloads? The brass actually looks pretty good, like the only dents on it are from being packaged in a bag(and how does that differ from an ammo can?)
I don't think I'd bet my life on it, but for practice it can't be beat. I haven't found a better price anywhere.
Great stuff, great price. (Posted on 7/14/11)

Best Price Per Round.
Review by Zenophobe

Best price per round that you will find that isn't a major brand. The biggest issue which is now on the site is that this is reloaded or remanufactured ammo. Now, everything in the ammo is new minus the brass. I've counted atleast 5 different manufacures of brass in my packs.

It shoots straight but was extremely dirty in my XD(M) 40 S&W. But i did put 400 rounds through it with only minor cleanings at the range.. But my full cleaning took some time as it should.

Great price for range ammo. MAKE SURE YOUR RANGE WILL ACCEPT RELOAD OR REMANUFACTURED AMMO!!!!! (Posted on 6/18/11)

When I go out for a day it's not uncommon to blow through 200-300 rounds in my .40 cal. I've never had a mis-fire, no-fire,or a jam using this reloaded ammo. As long as Cali ammo laws don't change i'll be purchasing this MBI ammo from Bulk Ammo. (Posted on 3/6/11)

This is the best priced ammo I could find that also has quality to it. Every shot feels and sounds great with full consistancy. The bags themselves are very durable, but I had a couple seals break. That doesn't matter to me. I like to have my rounds in holders. No big deal to me either because I just dump the bags out and fill the holders that I have already. No complaints. (Posted on 2/3/11)

I go shooting in the wood behind my house and I normally have to pull the ammo out of the boxes and put them in zip lock bags to cut down on the trash I have to carry out. This MBI is already packaged in thick plastic bags and it was just as accurate as any of the store bought ammo I've shot. If they keep the prices low I'll keep shooting it. (Posted on 9/3/10)

Q: Can this remanufactured ammo store for long periods of time? Someone told me that this type of ammo needs to be used quickly due to moisture ruining it.

Posted On: 5/27/14 By: Edwin

A: Hello Edwin, These 180gr. FMJ rounds by MBI in .40 S&W can be stored for long periods of time without any issues. They do not react any differently to storage than other .40 S&W rounds. You will want to keep them in a relatively low humidity location if possible to extend their storage life, but that goes for any ammo.
Q: Is the MBI 180gr FMJ .40 cal good to use for practice with a Sig P226?

Posted On: 2/14/14 By: John

A: Hello John, Yes they are! The MBI 180gr. FMJ rounds in .40 S&W make great practice rounds, as long as your Sig P226 is chambered in .40 S&W.
Q: Are these casings too far stretched to be reloaded again after firing them?

Posted On: 2/28/13 By: Cam

A: If not all, a majority of the rounds loaded from MBI are once fired cases. Brass produced from Federal, Remington, Winchester, PMC and other popular manufacturers should be able to experience the reloading process many times. As most reloaders know to do, it is important to check each round for case splitting and premature wear prior to loading again. I have been able to load 38 Special rounds from MBI a minimum of 6 loads and counting.
Q: is this ammo suitable for a springfield armory XD40?

Posted On: 2/7/13 By: Pete

A: We have found this MBI ammo to perform well in the Springfield XD series as well as Sig, Glock and other popular firearm manufacturers. The performance is comparable to the popular Remington and Federal brands on the market today.
Q: Are the packs re-sealable?

Posted On: 7/14/12 By: bill

A: The MBI plastipacks are not re-sealable. The plastic is a very tough, heat sensitive poly that is heat sealed on both ends to ensure a complete vapor seal.
Q: is this ammo non corrisive? thanks

Posted On: 6/19/12 By: Jake

A: Yes, this ammo was remanufactured with new, non-corrosive smokeless powder. In fact, it's the same powder that you will find used in many brands of newly manufactured product. The primers are also standard OEM components that are likewise non-corrosive and the bullets are copper-plated to reduce lead exposure and build-up inside barrels.
Q: How much does a case of 1000 rounds of this ammunition way..approx.

Posted On: 3/29/12 By: Devon Taggart

A: 1000 rounds of this .40 S&W 180gr ammo weighs approximately 37 pounds.
Q: What brand of brass are these reloads?

Posted On: 2/16/12 By: Elden

A: The brass used for MBI ammo is mixed headstamp. It will generally not consist of any one particular manufacturer's brass.
Q: Is this reloaded or remanufactured ammo? Or all new?

Posted On: 10/21/11 By: Dustin Hollis

A: This is reloaded ammo.
Q: Is this ammo suitable for use in 40 S&W revolver like the Charter Arms Pit Bull?

Posted On: 10/21/11 By: Mark

A: This ammo is suitable for use in any firearm chambered for .40 S&W.
Q: What tends to be the problems or issues why some brands of ammo have more jams or misfires then others. Thanks in advance

Posted On: 10/20/11 By: Anonymous

A: Some ammo might be loaded too hot or too weak to cycle in certain firearms. Also, projectile type and seating depth has an effect on reliability. From a firearm standpoint, poor lubrication/maintenance, worn springs, etc can lead to the same problems.
Q: Since this product is loose packaged is there any changes to shipping? Is it safe to keep them loose packaged or should I transport them in a more traditional individually separated method?

Posted On: 10/19/11 By: Cris

A: It is safe to store this MBI ammo in its loose packaged configuration.
Q: wondering if this is once-shot ammo, since the price is so low in comparison with other 1000 round pricing...thanks for all the options!

Posted On: 10/18/11 By: Andrew

A: This MBI ammo is factory reloaded with once-fired brass, yes.
Q: Do you have the average muzzle velocity for this cartridge out of a 5" barrel?

Posted On: 9/30/11 By: Anonymous

A: The muzzle velocity of this ammo from a 5" barrel is 900fps.
Q: Is this lead free. I am looking for practice ammo, needs to be lead free and full metal jacket. If this is not do you have something else I could use that fits this criteria. Tks. Bob

Posted On: 7/31/11 By: Robert

A: MBI's 40 S&W ammunition is loaded with a projectile that has no exposed lead compared to the standard FMJ product which has exposed lead at the base of the projectile. However, this ammo is generally not considered lead free as it not loaded with premium lead free primers but instead uses standard CCI Small Pistol Primers. This ammunition, as a result of the projectile, offers less lead exposure than most standard loads. A good option for a lead free product would be Magtech's 40 S&W FEB (Flat Enclosed Base) Clean Range ammunition.
