I don't know where you live but in California that is actually decent priced. In my town it averages $20 per box

I feel sorry for you then. paying $18+ shipping on 115 gr 9mm is absurd IMHO.

If you get it please post a range report...

I buy in bulk from various sources and buy small quantities at Walmart. I have always replenished my stocks as I shoot so I have not paid the post panic prices. The last time I ordered 500 round of 115gr 9mm Fiocchi it was $13 a box. IIRC

I have passed on a lot of stuff at $15+ shipping because I do not need it yet and if we stop allowing ourselves to be gouged the price will come down. Sorry not trying to be rude I just think we as a shooting community are paying way too much.

So we're effectively shooting ourselves in the feet?

I've used it in my P89. It worked fine. I don't remember it being any cleaner than any other ammo. At my LGS in DE it's 16/box.

I shot 200 rounds of this through my Kahr CM9. It functioned fine, and was very clean shooting. No cleaner than any of the other major brands though really.

$27.00 + shipping for a 50 round box of .45. No thanks! I'll stick to shooting my reloads at $7 to $8 per box.

I paid $15 a box for 9mm fmj at my local gun shop. Their prices are ridiculous at Cabela's

I still pay around 20.00 a box of a hund from my LGS. This is way overpriced
