Factory reloads???

I bought 500 rounds of factory reloads at a gun show. They were all winchester. What does factory reload mean??? (besides that they have been reloaded at a factory) Does this mean that they have been reloaded by winchester??? (I doubt this is the case) Are factory reloads reliable???

Some certifed factory reloaded ammo is fine (ie, Georgia Arms & Blackhills). Buying from a gunshow though, you have no idea who or how that ammo is loaded. Me, I won't shoot range reloads or unknown reloaded ammo. It's factory or my own handloads. If it is "factory reloaded", then it will have a manuf. name you will recognize, like GA, BH, etc.

Georgia arms seems to be the most common for this sort of thing. Duno what yours is.

When I got home I checked the box, it says Blackhills. So, I guess I am safe from what you have said.

Blackhills makes exc. ammo. I have not tried their reloaded stuff, but would have no problems giving it a go.

HSM (Hunting Shack) is very large and has done this for years. Good stuff. You can also get some from Miwall, but I have had only so so luck in it firing, lots of bad primers in my last batch.

Factory reloads???

Hi,
I have been buying reloads from Outdoormarksman for a year now and
have had no trouble at all. Plus, if you buy 500/1000 you get the ammo
can. 9mm, 45ACP, .223.

I am not affiliated with them at all, just buy there.
