Seemed like a good deal so I took a look at their website and I must say I do not get good vibes from it.

How a company presents it's product says a lot.

In this case the website looks rather amateurish and in some the pictures the boxes look like they were salvaged out of the trash. It makes me wonder about the quality and quality control of their product.

I think I will stick with Freedom Munitions.

I wouldnt mind trying some, but i cant get any shipped to me in the commie state of ny.
Maybe someone else will come along that has tried some to let everybody know how it worked.

Small company by the looks of their website.
Everybody starts out somehow, so i wont judge them, but i do wish them luck.

I did notice they had a new G30 SF for sale... but its a 3rd gen @ $550 and seems kind of rich in price (for a 3rd gen) for my taste.

I hear ya, getting reloads from a company you do not trust 100% is dangerous, I use Freedom also, but only because they have been around a while, and have a solid reputation on their reloads. I fear the exploding handgun from bad reloaded ammo......

Dont use any remington ammo then...lol. I quit using it years ago due to a new loaded round blowing up one of my guns.

PaPow, I had a similar experience with Remington factory ammo but not as bad.

It was with .17 Remington ammo. I couldn't get any accuracy with it. Then I chrono'ed it and saw velocities all over the place, also had high pressures. I just disassembled it and used the components.

I agree.

Same thing when I go to gun shows. You see these guys selling reloads bundled loose in old cardboard boxes hand written with sharpies.

I don't care how cheap there stuff is, I am not risking my firearms or my life on them.

A few weeks ago my buddy, who is still somewhat new to shooting, was at a show. He called me and asked my opinion about the reloads he saw at crazy low prices.

I advised him to walk away. He understood when I explained to him why. He too now gets his ammo from Freedom Munitions.
