Hello,

The local Walmart is selling standard pressure 115gr Remington HP (not GS) in bulk packs of 100 for a little under $20.

Is this a good value for this ammunition? I'm trying to get stored up.

Thanks,

Josh <><

It doesn't sound too bad. Regardless, right now I'd say to grab them!

And the beauty of Remingtons in that weight and bullet profile is that they should feed through about any 9mm. handgun. Remington 115 gr. JHPs are known to have a bullet profile similar to ball ammo. The mouth of the bullet will expand though when it hits it's target. Even ones that are finicky for feeding only hardball or round nosed bullets will function well with Remington.

The price seems right.

Thanks gents,

I bought a box. Unlike bulk 100rd Winchester, there are two plastic trays holding it instead of letting it bang around loose.

Everything looks ok on the outside, just like the 115gr +P Remington stuff I used for a couple weeks while awaiting an order (I won't order ammo anymore; this is my own personal boycott of the shipping prices). I got the Cor®Bon and sent the other stuff downrange.

I reckon I'll pop a couple, few milkjugs covered with denim and see if this stuff performs.

No chrono; I'd like to see the ES and SD though.

Thanks,

Josh <><

Just shoot for accuracy. Standard Deviation won't be that high as to make a big difference if they're accurate and reliable. If I get some, I'll shoot a few over the chrony, but I don't plan on buying anything, but shotgun shells with my ammo budget until toward the end of duck season, LOL. I'm pretty set for doves, but may have to spike my shotgun shell collection soon and those danged steel loads ain't cheap. I reload for my pistols, so can keep the cost down on them.

JS. Don't expect the Remington ammo to open as dynamically as opposed to other newer designs. It won't under most circumstances. It will or should expand somewhat. A target center punched correctly will not notice the difference in being stopped.

JHPs of any kind do not normally expand or deform as large and nicely in flesh targets as they do when ammo makers photo op them or flesh simulated media is used.

Gents,

Thanks. I do a moderate amount of ammunition testing and plan to do a few of these through denim covered water jugs - divide that result by 2 and you'll come up with the rough penetration in gellatin.

If you know of my board (which by agreement with the webmaster of this one, I will not advertise), you know that I have a section dedicated to terminal ballistics. Such is my interest in the subject, and when I get around to popping some jugs with it, I'll try to post it here as well.

Thanks again,

Josh <><
