Aluminum cased ammo

Discussion in 'Hi-Point Pistols' started by agisoec, Mar 26, 2015.

  1. I started to pick up a couple of boxes of Federal 9mm Luger ALUMINUM cased ammo, then changed my mind, and then changed my mind again. For $9.00 for a box of 50.....who knows?

    I have never used steel or aluminum cased ammo, only brass.

    Is is OK to use in my C9?

    I use it all the time. No issues with it at all.

    Only real drawback is if you reload.

    I tried it for the first time in my new sd9ve. No problems except for the casings hitting me in the head.

    You will find that it feels "hotter" than most target ammo.

    If you live near me...............it is total crap. Leave it on the shelf.

    +1 that Talon!
     
  9. Used it in both the JCP and 4095 with no problems.
     
  10. My Maverick and the 1911 a1 really dislike it.
     
  11. Brass or steel.
    Aluminum is for PMS.Pretty Much Stupid.
    IMO
    It's soft and it never holds a consistent group.Fire 50 rds of steel and then go to aluminum.
     
  12. The lead leaves the barrel differently.Its too soft and is inconsistent.
    Let the Boy Scouts train on cheap training ammo.

    Different strokes, I guess. I find that our C9 eats whatever we feed it. I reload, so I don't really like aluminum (or steel) but we do shoot it and haven't had an issue. At that price, try a box. Worst thing that can happen is that you'll hate it and never buy it again.

    I hear you on that, I just got my sd9ve last month and I too have been experiencing the casings coming back at my head instead of ejecting out of the side. Well, I least I'm not alone.....:D
     
  16. I like using aluminum ammunition to train and target shoot with. I would never use it for self defense purposes unless it was all I had.

    I have better experiences using brass ammo. I usually steer away from reloads unless they are done by someone I know. I don't like steel cased ammunition either.

    This is weird, my CZ 75 ejects aluminum on to my head also. Are these brain sucking cases that the government developed to get rid of firearms owners? :eek: :foilhat:

    Actually less than $2 difference than the Italian PerFecta at Wal-Mart priced at $10.97.
