Cabelas had a deal today, if you had and used your Cabelas card, you could get Hertler's (S&B) 9mm for $8.99/box, delivered. Bought some as a gift for my friend in Tennessee.

Geco is a German company that makes very good quality ammo. Some calibers are manufactured in various European countries.

I think I have heard the name before, and this sale price seems pretty good, and the bullets are an amalgam of different metals including steel. I don't know how it shoots, or so far, anyone that has used it.

Good success with both the 115 and 124 in a Glock 19 and STI 1911.
Definitely quality ammo.
Price is high. I've paid $9.50 a box for a case plus shipping this year.

That's a good price. I only found the one price for this ammo at my usual vendors, which I'd like to try. They didn't stock 124 gr.

Geco is actually a Swiss company that has ammo made for them in Germany and Hungary as well as Switzerland.

It is high quality decently priced ammo.
I have seen the 124gr for under 10 bucks delivered and I expect even better prices as time moves on

Their 5.56and 223 ammo is excellent _:

I did a quick google (actually Bing). Only found 124 gr for $11.47.
I better get this 'deal' before it's gone.

Odd, I had them in my vendors folder. Had an account & everything. Can't figure out what or when I could have ordered from them. Anyway, I went ahead and ordered it. Thanks.

Just shot a 20 rd box of 7.62x39 Target GECO with my BCA upper and Anderson Machinery lower. it shot flawlessly, true, and clean. =D> At $7.49 a box at Rural King I will go back and buy more for sure. Beats the hell out of the Tula that failed miserably. [smilie=014.gif]
