    For anyone who has a Shoot Point Blank gun store (mostly midwest) they have been pushing these cheap hollow points. At about a dollar a round, it's almost too good to be true. Well, if you have a glock 43 it might. Basically, the bullets sit too high above the casing which makes them just slightly longer than the headspace of the chamber on my 43. When it chambers, the round doesn't sit in the right place for the firing pin to strike the primer in the right spot and you have to fight to clear it because the extractor is engaged.
    I put the same ammo in my sig sauer 320 and it fed and fired just fine. The sig has over a thousand rounds through it, the glock has under 200, but I doubt that's a factor. That sig has eaten everything I"ve put in it, maybe it has a little more headspace in the chamber. As for the glock, I'll stick with hornady for now.

    A buck a round doesn't seem cheap to me.

    Ammo ain't cheap these days. I use ammoseek.com to search for deals.

    Once this is over you better stock up like I did during the Obama fiasco. I don't shoot much anymore but I have over 3000 rds. of 9mm left, gobs of 22 and over1200 rds of 5.56 and 1000 of 7.62x39 and a bunchh of 12 gauge. I ain't scared of no zombies.

    But you are right. A buck a round is outrageous for 9mm even for today. The lowest on ammoseek right now for plinkers is 29 cents per round. You can get defensive rounds for not much more.
