Extremely good deal on a very good load

Outdoor Limited has Federal's 9BPLE for $16.95 per 50. In a day when a lot of defensive ammo is a dollar a round, this $339 per thousand is a very good deal imo.

It is +P+, and some folks understandably don't like that. I use it almost exclusively in my glocks and my carbine, and they eat it up. Runs a hair over 1300 fps from a full-size glock, and more than 1600 fps from the carbine.

Just thought I'd share a good deal I came across.

Fwiw on the +P+ thing (and I can't prove this) but from what I've read on this particular load over the years, it's loaded to actually just at the top end of of +P. Supposedly since Federal loads it as close to the edge of +P as possible, a small percentage inevitably ends up slightly over the 38,500 psi of +P, and since any of them go beyond +P, the whole thing becomes inherently +P+ in rating. Personally, I've used it for over 20 years and have had very good results with it. I wouldn't use it in a Hi-Point or similar, but I wouldn't use +P in a Hi-Point either for that matter.

Just a 'take it for what it's worth' thing, and if someone's not comfortable with +P+, more power to them. That leaves more of it for those of us who are...

Fwiw, just got a 'back in stock' notification if anybody missed them before. They're $17.50 instead of the $16.95 of last time, but at .35 cents a round it's still one of the best deals around imo; on a load with a decades-long track record.

Got a 'back in stock' notification, at an even better price this time; just $13.95 per 50. With shipping, it still comes out to only $14.93 per box if buying a case.

If I didn't already have enough for probably my grandkids' lifetimes, I'd be all over this. My camp-9 carbine loves the stuff, and runs it at slightly over 1800 fps. Awesome feral-critter medicine.

edit - It runs ~1620-1625 fps from the carbine, not 1800. It's the corbon powrball that breaks 1800 from the carbine.

The big question is why would you even give a HiPoint a second look!
