    FWIW, The BVAC 10mm that I have used performs well and is loaded in new Starline brass. It is indeed a good deal.

    a member on another forum that used the BVAC 40cal said it's "once reloaded". i assume they would know that because they buy it from LE agencies (if it's true).


    can't find anything on their site to indicate whether it's fresh or reloaded....

    Mine was new but it was loaded in topbrass stamped brass. Good ammo feeds and fires in my G29 but personally doesn't feel like 1200 fps. Maybe it is and i'm used to a little hotter but its great practice ammo for cheap.

    FMJ, BVAC advertises both reloaded and new component .40 S&W. So far as I know all of their 10mm is assembled from new components.

    I tried a box of BVAC 10mm 180gr JHP and was surprised that is was very accurate. They were loaded with new Starline brass and 99.9% certain were Montana Gold bullets.
    Paid around $21.00 + shipping for 50 rnds which is a good price for any factory 10mm, so the bulk deal (above) is a great price.

    I agree with Stumper, due to the scarcity of 10mm once fired, I'd venture to guess all their 10mm is new brass, but you can call them to verify.

    I've also loaded 1000's of 10mm with Top Brass (Scharch) and it's excellent brass.

    sound good, glock20.

    i can actually find 10mm blazer alloy for $23 locally, so it beats ordering BVAC online, once you factor in shipping charges of course. blazer is good stuff too.

    however, if that well dries up, i might give the BVAC a try....

    FMJ - Never shot Blazer alloy in 10mm, but have for 40 and I agree it is pretty decent, especially for the price. Downside to handloaders is the cases are not reloadable, although I'm sure some will argue that point.
    Once fired 10mm "brass" is fairly scarce and worth 8 - 10 cents and I doubt that it would be hard to sell on this forum.
