So, Samco Global (and a couple other places) have this 9mm, brass-cased, non-corrosive, berdan-primed, 124gr ammo at a pretty good deal. I was thinking of picking up a case.

Does anyone have any direct experience with it?

Not really, but I've seen their .308 and if that is any indication of their quality I wouldn't do it. Pakistan is on my do-not-buy-surplus-from-country list. I'll bet you can't get through thirty rounds without a dud or ammo related failure. And the 2z is subgun round, its loaded hot with hard primers.

Like the little warning that says it'll blow up the P-38,

Ooooooh... I'm thinking 9mm AR :)

Anyways, if it's pakistani junk maybe I'll just steer clear.

No one else has any input?

Supposedly the stuff is loaded for SMG. I don't think I'd use it in a pistol.

I've got a few 9mm carbines. So that's not a problem.

Though, I would like the option to use it in a pistol so I'll probably not purchase it anyways.

Destined to FAIL?
