LuckyGunner Handgun Ammo Specials December

40 S&W – 180 Grain FMJ-FP – PMC – 1000 Rounds ($350)

PMC has earned an impressive reputation in the U.S. civilian market over the last few years due to its dependability round after round. This 40 S&W ammunition is perfect for reliable and affordable range training. PMC ammunition is manufactured in South Korea by the Poongsan Corporation (ISO certified) which produces cartridges ranging from small arms ammunition to large howitzer rounds for the S. Korean military. The Poongsan Corporation dates back to 1968 and since its founding it has grown to become on one of the world’s largest manufacturers and suppliers of ammunition. The Poongsan Corporation’s primary mission is to make South Korea fully self-reliant for their ammunition needs. Taking advantage of their high standards required through the military’s reliance on their ammunition, their excess capacity is highly sought after throughout the world’s commercial markets. In the United States, their reliable range ammo has become a standard for excellence and consistency.

9mm – 115 Grain FMJ – Magtech Steel – 1000 Rounds **STEEL CASES** ($225)

Here is the problem: brass, which is the alloy used to make shell casings, is mostly made of copper – and copper don’t grow on trees.
Here is the solution: steel, which is 97% iron – the fourth most common element in the Earth’s crust.
Here is the ammunition: Magtech Steel, which features budget-conscientious steel cases that are plated in shiny zinc for better cosmetics and protection against rust!

This 9mm ammo’s cases aren’t reloadable. Steel is nowhere near as elastic as brass, which is why a steel case doesn’t return to its original dimensions after it is fired. But if you have no intention of reusing your empties, then that’s hardly the greatest setback life will ever throw your way.

This ammo’s cases will attract a magnet, but its 115 grain full metal jacket projectiles will not. Each steel-free FMJ will achieve a just barely supersonic muzzle velocity of 1,135 fps as it exits a 4” barrel. Consistent accuracy. Quite manageable recoil. Optimal for target practice.

Magtech is part of CBC Global Ammunition, a massive Brazilian ammo manufacturing concern which exports their products worldwide. Their primers aren’t corrosive, so your pistol or carbine is safe.

9mm – 150 Grain Total Synthetic Jacket (TSJ) Action Pistol – Federal American Eagle Syntech – 500 rounds ($190)

This bulk case of 9mm ammunition will be a treat for your game gun as well as yourself thanks to component features that are made expressly for competitive shooters that practically live at the range. Federal Premium is a U.S. company with just under a century of experience producing some of the finest cartridges in the country. Their Syntech Action Pistol line utilizes advanced components for stellar performance and function. Parts include non-corrosive “Catalyst” primers that have zero lead in their mixtures and clean-burning powder that launches projectiles consistently without any leftover residue; this contributes to a less toxic environment which is incredible for pistoleros that spend most of their practice or match time indoors.

Both the primer and powder are housed by a reloadable brass casing which is capped off with a 9x19mm TSJ (Total Synthetic Jacket) projectile. The TSJ is built like a conventional FMJ but uses a polymer jacket instead of one made from copper. This material is softer and prevents metal-on-metal contact from occurring in the barrel, reducing friction and heat for less barrel wear and fouling over time. As a result, shooters will experience improved accuracy and longer handgun life. In this particular load, the TSJ has a flat nose which is great for soft target scoring and steel target energy transfer; speaking of steel targets, the synthetic coating of the bullet helps to prevent potentially dangerous ricochets from heading back to the shooter. A projectile weight of 150 grains not only delivers greater energy to plates and poppers but facilitates smoother cycling and manageable recoil in full-size competition guns like the Glock 34 MOS or a Triarc RONIN TRI-11.
