Anybody know about military 9mm ammo? I was at a shop today, they had 80 rounds of 9mm military (green casings) for $18.

Green casings are most likely steel cased, of Russian manufacture. Wolf, Monarch, or one of the "Bears"(gold, silver, etc) They are laquered to resist moisture and corrosion and last a very long time in bad environmental conditions. They are a lot more practical than brass cased ammo in many ways, but not if you're a reloader.

Quality control and consistency from round to round will be considerably less than american commercial manufactured ammo, but I doubt you'll get a dud round. Russians know how to make reliable stuff.
