If you're looking for cheap range ammo I fail to see the point. Walmart has Federal factory ammo cheaper. Why risk reloads?

Is that what I asked?

Stupid me, I thought I asked about a specific company and if anyone had any experience with them.

Only thing I can find as far as a review goes in one result on thier google map listing:

1 guy marked them as 5 stars, seems that they are a gun shop and a reloader.

One of the guys @ the private range I belong to has one of their custom STI packages. He also reloads using their components and has nothing but praise for them. My next bulk bullet purchase will be through them.

I just took a chance on them for some .45 range brass. I ordered it Monday nite & it was in my mailbox today. $75/1000 + tax but free shipping. Mixed headstamps - not decapped - just floor sweepings. I haven't really checked any further than opening the box & eyeballing a handful or so but they look just fine. Dirty, but fine & since Starline sells 1K new .45 brass for double that - it's not really a bad deal. Noticed a few nickel plated Speer cases in the mix along with the distinctive red primers on S&B cases.
I will definitely buy from them again & give them a [smilie=pdt_xtremez_30.gif]

Just watch out for those sneaky SPP cases. They'll jam a progressive quite quickly. Consider having a few LPP's primed and ready to be exchanged in the event one of the SPPs does get by you.

yep. If you wind up with some of the Federal NT cases, they use a small unlike the rest of the 45 world. Royal PITA. Worse than finding a damn GAP brass in your real 45's. [smilie=pdt_xtremez_13.gif]

Sounds like how I found out what Berdan primers can do to a decapping pin. (Ever see a 9mm case with 3 flash holes?) [smilie=011.gif] Now I make sure I clean every primer pocket with the little tool designed for the job - if it doesn't fit in the pocket, it's a SPP & goes into the bag with the rest of the NT cases. When I get enough of them I'll just set up my press for it & run off a bunch.

I know this thread is a little stale, but it seems that no one actually answered a very reasonable question. So here goes.

Just finished 1000 rounds of Everglades 9 mm reloaded ammo. It was flawless; not a single problem.

Their 147 gr load is optimized for IDPA. It shoots very softly and easily met power factor out of my VP9 (4.1 in barrel). The velocity variance is also very low compared to what my own reloaded ammo does (and I try to be careful).

Bottom line is this -- they make very high quality practice/match ammo at a good price. Even if some Walmart factory brand was the same price, I'd go with Everglades as my experiences with cheap, bulk, factory ammo have been mixed, sometimes pretty bad.

I am definitely planning to buy from Everglades again. Wish they had much wider distribution.

I have been buying all my projectiles from them since my 1st post on this thread (2012) & I am still impressed with their quality & prices. Shipping is insanely fast. Last time I ordered 230 gn .451 JHP, in came in one box & the UPS driver asked me if it was a box of hammers. I said yeah, kinda'. [smilie=011.gif]
