Review by GuardianDevil
To be fair, after several range sessions and cleanings, the performance is improving. The last time I went through several full magazines without problems before some jams started to occur, so I guess I'll just have to be patient and for now I'm attributing the problems to the firearm itself and not the ammo. In support of this, all of the rounds that jammed so far fired properly when re-loaded into a magazine for a second time. And there have been no misfires so far which appears to be very good performance and reliability compared to what I have read about in reviews of other varieties of ammo.
The good news is, this ammo is entirely lead-free, including the primer. I'm rather paranoid about inhaling lead vapors, so much so that I will only go to outdoor ranges as it reduces exposure to lead vapors from other shooters as much as possible, relative to the close quarters and limited ventilation of indoor ranges in particular. Heaven knows at my ripe old age I can't afford to kill off any more brain cells than are already dying off naturally.
Bottom line is, this ammo meets my expectations and does the job, and I'll be ordering another 10 boxes soon. With 10 boxes the discount of $1 per box makes the cost a little better, about 48 cents per round with shipping. Yes, that is a bit pricey compared to other leaded alternatives, but you have to ask yourself, what are your brain and health worth to you, and do you acknowledge your responsibility for your impact upon the environment that all life relies on?
One thing I like a lot is the packaging, very discrete and basically impossible to tell from the shipping box or the label that it's ammo unless you already know who the seller is since it's only identified as BA. That can be a concern for anyone in a high-density development like the condo complex where I live, and not wanting to unnecessarily advertise the contents to overly curious neighbors who can be very abundant.
