    If it's FMJ, why should it matter?

    That's a hell of a deal. I just paid $249 for 1K rounds from Ammoman.

    Do they make it themselves? What's their reputation like?

    I've only heard good things about them. This is my first time ordering from them, though. I was actually browsing out there looking for .45ACP and ran across this.

    I've not consumed any of their .40 S&W ammo, but I do enjoy their 10mm, 45ACP, and 223. I've not had any failures and it's on par with other well known quality brands. It appears to be much cleaner burning than a lot of WWB and Sellier & Bellot with the exception of their .30 Carbine. S&B's .30 Carbine absolutely rocks in my 'bines.

    This is a new concept to me, and I freely admit to my ignorance about polygonal bores. So I'll just ask, does this actually matter, and if so, does the Steyr M40-A1 have a polygonal bore? :D

    Wow, it almost like it is 30-50% less than ammoman. Where have I heard that before?

    Strange that it's described as FMJ, yet has that disclaimer.
    Perhaps it's more of a copper wash or plating, similar to American Ammunition's C3 :)barf: ).

    If it's a true gilded copper jacket, I cannot imagine a single reason they would warn against putting these rounds through any handgun with polygonal rifling.

    Daedalus7, if the newer M40A1 still has the same barrel as the M40, its barrel has cut rifling. I've put quite a few lead slugs through my M40 without the slightest problem... they're just as accurate as any jacketed slug I've tried and just as reliable (of course, the M40 was designed for the .40S&W and will eat anything with that designation). I just find cleaning easier after jacketed slugs and stick with 'em when rolling my own.

    I have shot 1000s of their 223 (Canned Heat) through my Min-14 and I believe it is of the same quality as the Winchester White Box stuff. Even though a Mini-14 is not an EBR and I don't believe you could stuff enough powder in a 223 case to blow one up, I can't imagine how you could blow up a M-16 based weapon either with a 223 round.

    Looks like they don't want them shot in Glocks for whatever reason.
