Bad experience with bvac ammo.

Hi everone, just recently purchased the xd9sc and shot about 500 rounds of random ammo (s&b, herters, etc) without any FTF or FTE, then came up on some BVAC 115gr hp ammo. Loaded one up and the slide jammed half way, ejected the round, again slide stuck, and again. I know they're reloads but thought they shouldn't have a problem.

Anyone had any experiences with this ammo???

well that is unfortunate.

I have only shot this out of my .45 acp- I feel it was the best reloads I have had yet } for a commercial reload that is

the local pd here uses this as well for practice ammo

I will buy this stuff any chance I get, flowed like a dream for me. great shooting experience > maybe I was lucky for the few batches I bought ? but really, really smooth ammo

What's the COL of the BVAC stuff? My 9sc is VERY sensitive to COL and HP's.

interesting... i shot BVAC 9mm JHP, FMJ without a hiccup on my XD9service and XD9SC SS. the 45 JHP also shoots fine on my PT1911SS and Kimber Custom II... their 22LR also shoots fine with my P22.

they are ok accurate, but dirty though.

I've shot hundreds of rounds of BVAC 9mm FMJ without any problems at all through my XD9 service and XD9sc. Surplus ammo is my local shop and I buy all my ammo from them most of the time. BVAC is a very popular round here. They sell by the tons, 500 and 1000 round boxes at a time. Sorry to hear about your experience, I don't think that's the norm with this ammo.

hm interesting. ya i got it from surplus ammo here in lakewood/tacoma, WA. Bought just 100. Maybe I just picked a crap box of ammo but I'm scared to use the other box of 50. First time loading JHP in the xdsc because I thought I'd be fun in the woods..lol, luckily I wasn't in a situation where I needed to use it..

I ended up buying 1K of bvac 9mm from surplus ammo.
Out of 1000, I had 7 rounds fail to fire.
I felt that was acceptable for what I paid for it..

Interesting. They seem like they have a nice selection, and have .50AE for a hella good price
