    Anyone have any experience with these? Pawn close to me has them for 10.99 a 50 pack.

    Not in 9mm, but I shoot Independence FMJ in both my .45 and my .380 with zero issues. It's a fine ammo.

    I've shot it. Shoots fine to me. Nothing special tho- you can get cheaper.

  5. It feels like a mild target load to me. I have had no problems with it.
     
  6. Isn't WWb only 15.oo for a 100 pack at wally world????
     
  7. I have shot it and it works fine.

    I shoot WWB 90% of the time. my .02

    Haven't checked Wal-Mart. Will go there tomorrow!
     
  9. WWB and RMC, I'm averaging $7/50 rnds. for plinking / practice. Good luck on your search!
     
  10. I have used a great deal of Independence 380-- shot fairly well...

    Not sure on the rest-- Fiocchi and WWB or Remi UMC usually are the cheapest here...
     
  11. It shoots well, but save your cash and go with WWB.
     
  12. Independence 115gr 9mm was the most inaccurate ammo I have ever shot in my C9. It also left a lot of burned and unburned powder flake in the action so I have not bought it since. Other guys on the forum have had excellent results with it though, so it can be all bad, just does not perform well in my particular C9.
     
  13. Like it better than Win. WB. To me the WWN was very "sooty" and the Independence was much cleaner shooting.

    Amen on that: I have run the 230gr in both my JHP and 1911 with no adverse affects.
