Why the Winchester 9mm NATO Bulk Ammo May be Bad for Your Pistol

Posted 6 days ago in Gear, Gun Safety, Shooting by Rob Reed

After the recent ammo drought, it’s good to see relatively cheap bulk pistol ammo returning to store shelves. But ammo buyers need to be aware that not everything is as it seems and not all ammo is created equal.

I found this Winchester “150 Round Value Pack” of 9mm NATO 124 gr ammo for sale at my local Gander Mountain for $49.99 recently. That works out to about $16.66 per 50, which is not bad for reloadable brass cased 9mm in the current market.

That is, until you read the (very) fine print on the bottom of the box that says, “These cartridges are loaded to military velocity and pressure; average pressure is 10% to 15% higher than industry standard pressure for 9mm Luger.”

Shrug eh, it's labeled as mil spec. I shot plenty of issue ammo out of both my 92's and a P89 no issues. I wonder if it leaves the little yellow powder specks like the issue ammo.
