I've shot more than a few boxes of it... Never had any problems... I'd say get some.

Holy crap. That's a great deal. I'm on my way tomorrow. Hope they still have it.
Wonder why they're marking it down 30%? It's not like selling 9mm ammo is tough to do these days.

It is the steel cased ammo in the flyer

I have not had problems with their steel cased ammo, but I will never buy their brass cased ammo again. I had major problems with the brass cases it in my wifes Ruger P-95. It functioned perfect in my G-26 though. Winchester and Remington ran that 95 100%. My friend buys the steel cased for his 92FS and he has not had any problems at all either. I ended up trading in that Ruger P-95 for a G-17. She could not get used to the decocker and DA/SA transition. She shoots the G-17 way better. It is a 2nd generation PD trade in, but has been flawless.

Thought it might be the steel cased based upon what they list as the everyday price. Nope, it was brass cased and they had bunches. Had some Monarch .380 as well.

I only have experience with Monarch .223, but I hope to give this a run later this week.

Purchased 5 boxes of this ammo yesterday.

Shot 3 boxes today thru my G26 and my Kahr PM9. Shot great in the PM9, but had one jam (failure to feed) in the G26. First ever jam in my G26!!!. Probably a light load. Otherwise this Monarch ammo shoots fine for the price.

Howdy,

I bought about 2k rds back when they were $4.86/box. I still have some of them.

Great load. I shoot them in my G23 w/ a LW 40-9mm conversion.

All ammo works in a Glock...

Up grade to Glocks.

Glocks work

Other guns

Get a Glock

Only because you can bet it is going to work.

Ran 50 today. Shot fine and the brass made a nice, easy to find puddle.

If I had known they were made by Prvi Partizan, I would have bought more.
