Interesting, I have used some of their handgun stuff and it was pretty good.

I've heard good and bad, not sure what to think. A buddy really liked FM VMAX and then the next batch he got wasn't so good.

Don't know if QA just went down for a while or what.

My guess was a production issue.   All the manufacturers were under the gun (pun intended) back then and there was some pure crap coming off the lines.   That went for guns also.   If anyone has used recent production ammo from this company please post in as we want to fair to people in the business.   If it is crap we will call it crap but sure don't want to judge based on the months after the double wammy that was the re-election of his Royal Assholiness Emperor Barrack and the incident at Sandy Hook.

I had purchased a large quantity of Lake City in mid 2012 so I did not have to buy anything during that period.   I also lost my tail as I could not only not get anything to sell but could not even get parts for my builds.    So, I had to go into my stash and sell some ammo to pay some bills.   That hurt as I have been replacing it slowly over the past couple years and the prices of course are not like 2012 but are still high in my cheap skate ass humble opinion.

One issue that still goes unexplained is why no CCI Stingers or Mini-mags?   I bought 2,500 rounds of Stingers in 2012 and my stash is getting low.  I can't find them or mini-mags.    I have seen some at retail prices but I am a dealer and plan on buying 5,000 for me and of course at wholesale.    I keep looking but why they are not out there is beyond my comprehension.

I have considered all of the responses herein, and I have come to the conclusion that I have been derelict if failing to secure an AR by now  That transgression must be remedied asap.  [smile]

Good decision Frosty.   Wait till the wife spends a few hundred on a dress, shoes and purse to match then go for it.

Ron,  I have the issue on the 22 WMR and it is becoming personal because I sold some Remington 592's in 22 WMR to some friends and they rely on me to get them ammo.    They haven't asked lately but I plan on grabbing some CCI Maxi Mags as soon as my distributor has some.

I'm looking for some Win PDX1, and/or Speer Gold Dots - they seem to be non-existent.

I think a local store has CCI - if they haven't sold it all - I'll find out tomorrow.

I went out yesterday later in the day and fired off 100 each of 38 specials and .380s from Freedom Munitions and it all shot very well. I had no complaints about it and this was stuff I ordered about a month ago. Given my experiences right at this point in time I would order more.


Both were their new manufacture XTP loads, 158 grain an 90 grain respectively.

Maybe they had a bad run or short period of QA issues that have been resolved. I noticed the reviews on the FM site are very positive!

Now, I know the rifle is none too subtle; however, I like it, and Mr. Trump, too.  Plus, I like red.  So, it was a win-win situation.  She didn't even ask how much it cost!
