Beautiful day here in central Pa - wanted to shoot some of this ammo that's stacking up. The last time I took three frangible loadings out so this time I took three remanufactured loadings out which consisted of:

Atlanta Arms & Ammo - 124g - FP TCJ (RL)
J&J Ammunition - 124g - PHP (RL)
Parabellum Research - 125g - FMJ (value line)(RL)

I was very impressed by the Atlantic Arms & Ammo and the Parabellum Research. Both had that Snap, Crack & Pop of a stout 357sig load that makes you love this round! Both were accurate -- and zero failures of any kind. The J&J? Not quite soo impressed. It had a weak pop that made me want to look at the muzzle to make sure the cork got out. I had two rounds fail to feed ( an almost non-existent problem with this gun, in the thousands of rounds I have put through it.) Also... not too accurate. I couldn't really even put one in the 3" circle targets (printed from Targetz.com)
Felt better when I switched back to Atlanta Arms & Ammo and did this:

I play a game where I shoot the upper left circle. then upper right, then lower left and then lower right. I go in this order until I miss (from about 12 yards away). I finally missed at shot 16 (lower right). I did put round 17 in there so as not to finish on a miss.
Then I did the same with the Parabellum Research.(below) I missed at shot 7, but so obviously knew it was me that I pressed on and didn't miss again until 25!

I then put a ten round mag of each ( AAA and PR) into a silhouette target with below results. It's a limited shooting sample, but so far I would definitely buy and use these brands again!!

PS - theses were the 74th,75th and 76th loadings through this pistol!!
