I have never run anything other than CCI Blazer in my 9s. CCI was out of stock and the gun store gave me this at the same price. There are mix reviews on Reddit and Luckygunner.

I ran the first 50 rounds of this and they seem fine. Hopefully all my guns stay in one piece after this 1000 rounds.

Id much rather have CCI for the same price. That stuff doesn't get the best reviews.

What guns can you Canadians shoot in 9mm? I thought handguns were restricted up there.

I can't even read the print on the box. What is this ammo called?

Handguns are restricted and some 9mm carbine "may not" be restricted although I might be wrong. The rules are very complicated on a legal level and practical level than the free country south of where I am.

Greek? They made the Garand ammo for the CMP that everyone is still raving about. However that was back in the 60's. And granted it's not the same company.

Not sure if anyone is interested in this. I have gone over 500 rounds of this I can report back I have not had any malfunctions yet.

However, this ammo leaves a bit of white/grey-ish ash as supposed to a black carbon residue that I mostly see in other 9s I have run.

Another thing I notice is that the brass seems to be a tiny bit smaller in diameter than the CCI Blazer, e.g. if I put a spent casing of the CCI in the chamber I get little to no wiggle room whereas this unknown ammo from the Eastern bloc has quite a bit of wiggle room. I am not sure what this means but this is my findings so far.
