Federal 9BPLE(115g JHP +P+) on sale(Updated)

Post by Termite » Thu Apr 07, 2011 8:29 am

Cheaper than Dirt has Federal 9mm BPLE, the 115gr +P+ LE stuff, on sale for $17.49/box of 50. This is the load that many LE departments issued when 9mms were popular, and is ranked as the top 9mm load in Marshall & Sanow's one shot study.
Apr 7 is the last sale day.

AYUP - me too. As much as I didn't want to spend the money, good defensive ammo at a GREAT price is damn hard to beat (or argue with). I think I'll use these to stagger between my rounds of Black Talon, which is currently occupied by Israeli high pressure ball ammo.

Or you could just shoot the two decades old ammo and carry the new stuff. I'm not really sure what you expect to gain by staggering different rounds in your magazines, and several potential problems it could cause.

Well, I imagine it was after this little thing called a TRO. ;)
The use of the word "but" usually indicates that everything preceding it in a sentence is a lie.
E.g.:
"I believe in Freedom of Speech, but". . .
"I support the Second Amendment, but". . .

When the previous anti-handgun ammo bill was ruled unconstitutional as being too vague. One of the reasons for those frigging nutcases in SacraKornhole to try again with an even WORSE bill(s). Part of this was discussed in the thread about Ammoman.com ceasing to fill orders to California, but that's been cleared up and they're shipping to CA again.

We discussed this back in Jan-Feb, were you on vacation? ;) ;) :lol:

Hopefully, we can stop these latest THREE new anti-gun bills in SacraKornhole, who are aiming to screw us BIG TIME!! And we can use ALL the help we can get!

Apparently, yesterday wasn't the last day as the price is still listed at $17.49, and I used a different browser and did a FULL page refresh to ensure it wasn't coming from cache. So, if you still want to get the ammo at THAT price, I'd suggest ordering it ASAP (unless they plan on keeping it at that price, then it's not a sale price)!

I wasn't able to locate an end of sale date either, but at that price I didn't want to wait and forget about it.

Now I'll have enough self defense ammo to last.. well... until I run out.
