    Hi I am not a guru in the ammo dept so maybe someone here could help me. Is this good 9mm ammo? Will it store for and fire for a number of years(10)? I would be shooting it from a Kel-Tec sub 2000

    Only if you turn right about midway to Kansas, and only in a leap year.

    i use winchester white box wal-mart no problems has no problem with there JHP's neither. stay away from anything thats not brass if you read the manuel it will tell you that it will jam if you use that aircraft junk. you gotta get the 30% recoil buffer and the cheek pad.

    Oh, yeah, it's the best. no question, hands down top quality stuff. I would recommend it to a friend or acquaintance. studies show that 60% of the time, it works every time...sorry couldn't resist:p

    And that [f]ool not [t]ool. And yer not. We all do that at one time or another (though I haven't:D)...TZZ or IMI is good brass for reloading. Not sure about the military factory loaded rounds though. Never used them as I reload. I will take the cases after you fire them though...:)

    "It works well in most hammer fired pistols but does not work well in striker fired pistols like Glocks and Springfield XD's. But fires every time in UZI's , MAC 11,MP5 and all 9mm rifles and most pistols."

    This is from the site, looks like it should fire from the kel-tec, but I can't say I've had any first-hand experience with it. I can say I have seen a fair amount of brass with the TZZ headstamp, so somebody has been shooting it out of something. I would guess it has been stored for awhile now and would stand another 10 years without any problem. Good luck, hope it shoots fine.

    Yeah I saw that part but I dont know if these are corrosive or if they have had a reputation of blowing up in the reciever, maybe 10, 20, or 50% of them just don't fire those are the kind of questions I was wondering.

    That is Sub Machine gun ammo! It's loaded alot hotter than normal 9mm...++P. I would not use it in any pistol and only in certain subguns.

    "Good" and "9mm" are mutually exclusive terms. Get a good .45 ACP! ;)

    Quality Europian and American 9mm X 19 can handle that ammunition...Especially Europian autos. They were designed to handle the hotter stuff if it is hotter and it may not be...

    Seeing as how Israel still uses a lot 9mm arms, it was declared surplus for a good reason.

    If it was still great stuff, they would shoot it up as training ammo.

    So if I understand correctly from the responses it's better to be safe than sorry and spend a little more for some better stuff?

    Neither here nor there
    I wouldn't buy it.
    A) The primers are very hard. Even with a heavy spring my CZs wouldn't always fire it
    B) It is very corrosive
    C) It is pretty darn hot

    You can get CCI blazer for $7.50 a box. I'd shoot that for plinking.

    My sub-2000 has eaten up everything I've tried to feed through it with no troubles. I just buy whatever cheapest brass 9mm I can find, though once I put a box of 50 blazer aluminum cased 9mm through it with no trouble.
