    I have shot many thousands of rounds of their canned heat in .40 S&W, 9mm, and .45acp. Several thousand .223, and just started on a can of .380. All FMJ except for one can of .40 Gold Dot (about 1/2 used, works great). The last two orders our group bought were over 20K rounds each (before the real crunch, thank God). No complaints that I heard.

    No recent order, but I hear they are behind. Usually tell you the wait on the website.

    I have used there products for 15 years and never had a problem. But if you don't like it ,,,,,more for those of use that do.. Good product just slow right now as they like other independent loaders, can;t get enough primers to say up with demand. The big boys keep all the primers they need first, before selling to the rest of those that need them next.

    I like their ammo. But if their grammar offends you, I would encourage you to avoid them. It will leave more ammo for me.

    Forget the Grammar, hit their ammo if you want some shooting.

    Georgia Arms has my respect for thier recent experiences and showing good Class and ability to take care of thier Customers. If I understand it, they are among the top 6 of Ammunition makers in the USA.

    I myself am biding my time until the primer sitaution catches up and the ammuntion supply for domestic sale stablizes.

    Im half tempted to say that they might take a dim view of a tightwad yankee... ah never mind.

    Buy your ammuntion as you can get them when you do have it ready to order. A bit of grammar aint "goings" to hurt no one.

    You're "a little put off" about ordering ammo because of a single typo on a webpage? Really?

    If so, I'd suggest untwisting your knickers before proceeding with your day - things might get worse from here on out.

    I know many people who are big Georgia Arms fans. They do lots of gunshows in the SE, including our big NC Show every couple months. One of the good things is they will deleiver your order to the show, so you don't have a shipping cost. I think the bad thing is their prices are not that great. I hit walmart frequently and the cost per round of new in small boxes is cheaper than a 1000 case per round. Of course if you can't find it locally and don't have any other choice? The prices for JHP are good in bulk if you need lots of some (for people that want to practice with what they carry). I've heard from AR board that they don't resize any of their brass, and its a issue with their 5.56/223 loads for some AR-15 owners. For that round Walmarts always have the Federal 39.99/100 which is cheaper without shipping, its very easy to find instock around here, AIM gets Centrion for $339/1000 almost weekly, you and often find M193 or M855 for not that much more. Same story with much of what they carry. There booths have been crazy at last two shows, at least 40 people or so inline at all times to checkout.

    I've never seen the word "hardy" used in the way they used it; I'm certain they meant "hearty."

    In any case, they evidently also don't know that "showroom" is all one word.

    I really don't mean to sound like a snob, but we're talking about small explosive canisters that are going to be going off a few inches from my face. I just want to make sure that this isn't some fly-by-night hillbilly operation that's going to leave me missing an eye or something.

    Being a satisfied customer for the past 10 or 15 years or so, I am very happy that they stick to reloading and don't spend of lot of their time sitting around reading the gol-dern dictionary. Did I spell gol-dern correctly?

    Spoke with one of their receptionists yesterday and I was told that they are at 10 weeks for delivery. Good customer service. Can't wait to shoot the stuff.

    I could try and buy the occasional box at wal mart when it comes in for a cheaper price, but $130 for 500 rounds of .40 ain't so bad.

    Not to be a jerk, but you kinda are coming off as one.

    What does a few typos on a page have to do with their ability to manufacture ammuntion? My father has a Master's Degree, and he routinely misspells "experience". A few grammatical mistakes doesn't make you a hillbilly.

    Just so you know they are not in the grammar buisness They manufacture ammo I didn't know you had to spell real good to make ammo. Just keep the insults coming on us folks south of the mason Dixon. Georgia Ammo is good stuff.

    Just because you are sounding a bit snobish:evil:, I'll copy and paste the reply that I gave to you the other place you asked this question.

    Hey, if their knowledge of the English Language is not enough for you to buy from them. That would be fine with me. That just keeps their prices that much lower, and keeps that much more ammo on their shelves/tables. They know how to load good ammo, that's all I need to know. I guess you wouldn't buy a 30 round magazine for $5 just because it's marked "clip". (At least that refers to their firearm knowledge a little.)

    And as far as the "most of their stuff is reloads" comment. If you look through their site (or their tables at a show), anything marked "new" is loaded in new brass and priced accordingly. Everything else is loaded to the same specs in once fired brass (some pistols may be more than once, how many nobody knows).

    Best thang here is if you dunt like there spel'n go somewhere else. Dat way us rednecks gots some where to gets our ammo. Dang ,for got my spell checker.. I can from time to time get a box or three of ammo at a price for what i pay or maybe a bit less but at this point it just ain't worth it. You more than likely will end up with different brands and bullet wieghts or profiles. I do know prices have gone up again about 20 bucks a 1000 for 9mm and 40s&w but all the darn compontents have gone up to soooooo, that life atleast for now.

    I bought a "canned heat" 500 round can of .40 S&W from them. It is good stuff, all mine was nickeled brass and maybe one round out of the lot that I didn't feel comfortable using because of a large dent in the case. It all shot very well.

    It used to be the cheapest route to go...now prices (after shipping) are about like Wal-Mart. With GA you still get the free ammo can though.

    I would trust a hillbilly more when it comes to firearms then most other folks. Do you mean to be insulting or is it a lack of education that leads you to believe that it is ok to insult people.


    Georgia Ammo is good stuff.

    I love their stuff. Hope they make it back up here for a show soon. Need to restock on some .38 cowboy loads. (like the rest of the world)

    Another Thumbs Up for GA

    Big fan of their version of the FBI load - shot a couple thousand rounds of that as a practice substitute to my carry load (BB Standard pressure .38s). It fits that niche very nicely without breaking the bank.

    Accurate and reliable, only reason I haven't ordered from them recently is I like to go to the range once a week - not once a quarter. Like everybody else, they are swamped with orders. Heck, I remember the good old days when I could order online Sunday night and Brown would have the order at my door by Wed/Thurs.

    Using a different perspective - do you really think they would be a couple of mos behind if they were turning out a crummy product? :D

    10mm ammo is taking about 6 weeks, my order is due tomorrow. I have used their 308 ammo without problems.
