Just picked up a few boxes of Monarch 9MM FMJ (steel case) at Academy for $7.99. Haven't tried the 9MM Luger yet but have shot the 9MM Makarov (steel case) and it was flawless. Great buy on plinking ammo. Better hurry, I believe the last day of the sale is Sat 8/13.

Never heard of this brand before but that's one heck of a deal for range ammo.

Checked the website but in store purchase only. No online orders.

Keep us posted on how the ammo performs.

Slammer,
Okay so Monarch is crap, but I bet you'll fire it everytime in the XD. I haven't even noticed it to be extra dirty. Does'nt take buch to clean a 3" barrel. That's "L&B" not "S&B" right? I don't know that one.

Yes Sellier & Bellot, best "Easter bloc" ammo, I have used. Liked it!

I've shot 1000s of rounds of steel Monarch with no issues. I believe Monarch is just the name Academy labels it. It is actually just Wolf or some other Russian ammo in a different box.

I've still got a few 1000 9mm stored away, from when it was $2.97 per box of 50.
