9 major box ammo

Recommended Posts

Who on here shoots 9 major and doesn’t reload. There is at least 4 companies making 9 major Ammo. Atlanta arms, Everglades, Titan, and Black Dot. Who’s is shooting these brands and how do you like them? Also is there any others that I haven’t seen?

Very happy with Everglades. Reloaded for years and this easier and cost effective.

Shot Everglades for a while when I was getting my press and load worked out. Open 9mm Major 124s ran like a freight train, Major 147s had constant feeding problems. As with open guns, ymmv.

I bought Everglades 124s to shoot for Steel Challenge, both major and minor.  They ran fine.

Another vote for Atlanta Arms. I've ran their 38 super before and its great. I've chronoed it also and it was plenty of PF and the SD was crazy low.

Atlanta Arms ammo ran flawless when I was using it.

Been using Everglades 124 for the last year with no issues at all.

I don't want to get off topic but just as important, have you all chrono'ed your ammo and it was good? I might have to order some while moving and getting a press set up. Thanks.

You are safe using the Everglades ammo.  Their claims are accurate.  In fact, IMO they are hotter than they need to be, at least in my guns.  Two 3/16" poppels and a custom 3-chamber comp.  If your gun bleeds more gas that that, your PF will go lower.  That may be why they load them so hot.

I been shooting a STI DVC Open using Everglades 124 major since August 2019. I have had zero problems through 5,000 rounds. Chronograph readings were 168 and 167 when it was in the low 80's. And 165 when it was 42 degrees.

Thanks for all the comments. I ended up buying a gold team 9mm major top end for my Tanfoglio and will be trying out some ammo soon.

I’ve been shooting Everglades 124 9major for past year. 3000 rd through my Limcat without issue. I need to order more actually since I don’t reload. Gonna order some of the 147 also to try. The 147 from Atlanta arms is amazing and noticeably softer but also pricey compared to Everglades. Hoping the Everglades 147 is similar

Got some Everglades and black dot Ammo in for my new Tangfoglio gold team 9major upper. Neither  one will load into the pistol. Having to send pistol back to the smith to have the chamber reamed out for the longer loads. Hopefully I will have it running before long.

Ran a bunch of Everglades 124gr Major last night in a small indoor match after my own loads were not hot enough and had a few FTE on a new to me used CK Hardcore. The Everglades ran perfect and felt great. My buddy had it left over cause he likes their 147gr major a little better in his open Glock 34. So I bought the balance of what he had.

 

By the way I have used their 115gr, 124gr, & 230gr plated & JHP bullets for my reloading for several years. In excess of 40K. Great stuff, fast free shipping on the bullets.

put some Everglades 147 9mm major through the chrono out of my Tanfoglio open pistol and came out to 164.56 power factor. Anyone else have a problem with Everglades Ammo not meeting PF? Black dot Ammo I ordered chrono at 169pf out of same pistol.

Impact Ammo is now selling 9mm major ammo loaded with 121 grain Montana Golds. They just released it recently. I talked with them and they told me that the OAL is 1.145" with a power factor of around 172.
