      Its funny, everyone talks about how remanned / reloaded ammo is so dangerous, but in my experience the only downside to it has been that its underpowered. Found some for $10 a box, bought 150 rounds of it.
      Probably 5 out of every box were like .380ACP pressures. Couldnt even cycle my 26. But hey for $10/box what do ya want?

      That said, only buy it if you can ensure that the brass has only been reloaded once. I once got an entire can full of reloaded 9MM, only problem was it had been reloaded more than once (i only discovered this after the fact).
      But in the (roughly) 1000 rounds, i had 7 case ruptures. Blew the mag outta the gun each time. But my G45 ate it like a champ.
      Anyways i noticed that most of the cases that ruptured were WIN (Winchester) stamped so maybe they use shittier brass? Idk. But yeah check for more than one extractor mark on the rim and more than 2 scratches down the length of the casing (where it runs across the feed lips of the magazine as its chambered). Any more and you can tell its reloaded twice, thus likely not safe to shoot.

      Hope this helps

        >everyone talks about how remanned / reloaded ammo is so dangerous, but in my experience the only downside to it has been that there's a chance that it's a squib that will destroy my barrel
        >1 out of 100 rounds blew up so hard that it broke the mag release on my pistol
        Just don't buy it

          Actually, the mag release is fine. So is the extractor

        Have you ever used 2A Warehouse’s reman loads? They’ve worked good for me

    from a reputable company it's fine. but new steel case is usually cheaper and does the same job

      Where am I supposed to shoot steel cased? Ranges won’t allow them

        Usually ranges have a prohibition against steel in the projectile. Never seen one give a shit about the case.

          A lot of ranges only allow brass because they pick up all the unclaimed casings to sell to reloaders
          The really shitty ones don't let you pick up your own brass

    Just don't get ripped off. Lots of reman ammo companies cost as much or more than cheap Remington or PMC range stuff.

    I've had three sqibs in three different calibers shooting reman stuff.
    In 38special, bullet was poking out the front of the barrel barely, probably wouldn't have been a kaboom, but I very nearly did pull the trigger again without noticing.
    In 45acp, bullet was halfway down barrel, shell didn't cycle out. That one was obviously fricked up and I caught it right away. If I hadn't, it probably would have been a kaboom on next shot.

    Third time was 308, with an FAL.
    Bullet stopped just past the gas block.
    This meant the action still functioned, ejected case, but didn't pick up the next one in the mag, getting hung up on the next shell as it moved backwards.
    It was incredibly close. I paused for a second, charged the next round in, and then thought "you know what? Better safe than sorry."
    Dropped the mag, ejected the round that was in the chamber, split the receiver and pulled the bolt, realized I couldn't see light through the barrel.
    That would have destroyed my $1700 battle rifle, 100%, and maybe fricked me up in the process.

    That was it, no more reloads unless I'm the one pressing them together. Never trust anyone else again. It's not worth it.

        Not sure on the 38 and 45, it was so long ago.
        308 was Fenix, if I'm remembering right. It's been like 5 or 6 years since I last touched any of it.

    Do you like going sloppy seconds with your GF after some random dude fricked her? Want her deloused by some random back alley guy before you stick it in? If you don't care then buy remanned ammo.

    it's worked fine for me, honestly. I had one case separation in 2014 from some, but since then it's been fine.

    I got this shitty reman 5.56 and I have a burst casing once every 100 rounds and half the time I have to take the rifle apart and dig around in the chamber with a wire brush because the front half of the casing is stuck in there
    DO NOT buy reman ammo for your self defense gun
