Preferred Ammo For 40 & 995

Discussion in 'General Hi-Point Discussion' started by PistolPat, Oct 24, 2007.

  1. Can you please tell me what ammo works best for the Hi-Point 40 S&W and the 995?.
  2. 40 S&W and 9mm?

    :D :D

    Seirously, my 995 always eats whatever I feed it which is usually cheap reloads or blazer cheap stuff.

    whatever i have.. usually bulk WWB..
  5. What ever you can but the most of. Havent found anything my 995 hasnt liked yet.
  6. The only brand I have used that my 995 did not like was the Remington hollow point that I bought from Wally World.
    Both the 995 and 4095 love my reloads.

    the only ammo my 995 wouldnt eat well was my own personal handloads using red dot powder. Just too fast a burn rate for a 16" carbine barrel.

    Anything. I shoot WWB, but Monarch is less dirty. CCI Blazer Brass is good and cheap. Also shoot the UMC Remington (Mega-Pack 250 round box for $35)
  9. I've said before, if I could shove a piece of celery in there, it would come flying out the other end when I pulled the trigger. I've been very fortunate. Find what works using the names above, and let 'er rip.

    I have not found anything that would not shoot in either carbine.

    9 and 45

    Both work great with any ammo that I can purchase or make. I load a lot of lead in both and they eat them just fine.

    The autoloading systems in my three hipoints work fine with very minimal amounts of power yet still work fine on full power loads.

    Remington UMC mega pack

    Walmart in AR about $55/250 rounds. Never a problem with this or WWB

    I prefer Winchester in the white box...typically the best boom for the buck...
  14. Thanks to all who responded. :D Hopefully I will finally get to fire my 995 tomorrow. Every day I am off from work, it has been pouring rain. :cry:
    I went to a gun store today and am heartbroken because I saw a 995 for $189.00 and I paid $220 for mine at a gun show, not including the tax and 3% charge to use my atm card. It was my first, and probably last, gun show because I was not impressed at all.

    Winchester White box for both my 9mm and 40 S&W have worked great for me. Have never has a FTF.

    If you have read any of my posts, you know I have some FTF's in my carbine. So I have experimented with every type of ammo i get my hands on. All have the same result. While I like WWB, it's the dirtiest, and has the most amount of smoke. There is HUGE difference clearing the air after a mag full of WWB vs. Cheapo Monarch or Blazer Brass.
