Here is a deal I came across. Thought I'd share.
Aye. Georgia Arms usually has good deals on bulk ammo. While I've not tried their .40 yet, I've run through plenty of their .45 and .223 without a single issue.
any idea what their shipping charges are?
I'm running their Gold Dots. No complaints so far.
$17 for shipping for the 1k .40 in the OP.
~$0.17 per round.
I haven't shot any of their stuff before, though.
Now if they would just run a deal on .223...
What does "These rounds were not intended for use in a polygonal style bore!!!!" mean?
I know several pistol manufactures use polygonal bores.. What kind of ammo isn't intended for them and why?
They're lead rounds.
Polygonal barrels don't like lead. You'll lead your barrel out fairly quickly running lead ammo through 'em.
Try the hunting shack!
I don't know how good $300 for 1000 rounds is, though (fired brass).
Ah..I didn't notice they were lead rounds.
Best deal I've seen on .223 is at Dicks, 5.98/20. Or at:
http://www.ammo-connection.com/index.html $335/1000 (shipped)
So will my Sig 229 like these or not? Recommended? Not?
Doesn't the ad say Full Metal Jacket?
I'm pretty sure the 229 has a polygonal bore.
The rifling twist is 1 in 15" in the .40 cal. and the fifling groves are 6.
Don't know what that means in terms of a polygonal bore.
I doubt it. The only manufactures I know that use polygonal rifling are Hk, Glock, Kahr, and Magnum Research.
The Sig site mentions nothing about a polygonal bore.
I couldn't find anything on it either. I do remember reading awhile back that the GSR didn't have the same type of barrel as the other Sig models and it isn't Polygonal.
Now, this source may or may not be accurate - but it looks like you Sig guys would be good to go using lead bullets!
That's a good price, but I haven't heard too many good things about THS.
