9mm Ammo
 
Guys,

Any ideas on the price and where's the best deal for 9mm ammo? I just purchased a CZ75B at Ultra Systems yesterday!

Armscor 9mm (FMJ) sells for about P14 per round, for factory ammo, at my gun range (Northstar). Well, you know that "range ammo" reloads sell for about half that or a little less (they tend to be less pwerful than factory ammo too), and reloaded ammo. that you can get directly (not through a range) would be cheaper pa (my friend gets his for about P5 a round.)

It is generally recommended that the first several hundred rounds through a new gun be factory ammo - the recoil springs are still stiff.

Other BOG members say that somewhat off-spec./seconds ammo is available at the Armscor factory at something like P8? P9? per round.

I have a Tanfoglio Combat model, which as you know has a design similar to the CZ75. A very good design, in my opinion (but a rather heavy DA first-pull: 13.5 pounds or thereabouts for the Tanfoglio, so I usually shoot just SA, which is of course easy to do in a CZ-design pistol as it can be carried cocked-and-locked.).

There seem to be plenty of CZ owners in the Philippines, and in BOG. Enjoy your new CZ85b.

Congratulations on your new CZ.

Are you asking about range/practice ammo or personal defense ammo?

Actually, I will be using both kinds.

Range/practice ammo - Get reloads from Stronghand or JuDGe
Personal defense ammo - Golden Sabres from PB Dionisio, Corbon from Urban, or Winchester SXT from Stronghand

Ditto what batangueno said.

You could also try the Sellier & Bellot 9mm JHPs at PBDionisio. Less expensive than the Golden Sabre, but I hear that the Czech guns work well with them... must be a language thing :)

I agree with what both batangueno and mikey177 recommends. But whatever type of ammo you choose for a defense load, I would suggest you get a box (50 rds) of that ammo and shoot it. This is to see if the ammo would not cause problems (misfire, jamming, failure of eject, feed, etc.). The manufacturer or other shooters may say that this tyoe of ammo works for the CZ but every gun has it own peculiarity. Shoot it first to be sure it'll fire when you need it.

Agree. The CZ75 is originally designed to work specifically with Sellier & Bellot 9mm JHP. It's P23-25/round in PB D.
