    I know my Wal-Marts aren't enforcing the 6 box limit anymore.

    - BTW - the prices are different on ammo in the Low Country.
    I noticed that Moncks Corners charges $0.50 more per box on the 9mm Federals.
    But Goose Creek and Summerville are $9.47.

    West Ashley and Mt. P. are also $9.47. Walmart does not match other Walmart store's pricing, so if possible, shop on down here for low, low pricing.

    Of couse things change.
    That turned out to be a metalurgical problem not an ammo problem. SAAMI (commercial) 9mm Luger is pressured to 34,000 PSI and NATO is pressured to 36,500 PSI. Yes, equivalent to a +P SAAMI pressure.

    I wouldn't shoot NATO in anything but:

    Browning Hi Power

    Sig

    Beretta

    Hk

    Glock

    CZ


    YMMV

    I got some NATO rounds and had no problems in my PT-709, Glock 26 or EAA witness.
    They had a noticeable increase in recoil.

    Also got some Blazer ammo (alum) and they stove piped in my PT-709.
    These are the first to do so continuously.
    Popped several mags Blazer Brass, no problems.

    I've never had a problem from any of the 9mm NATO stuff, either Federal or Winchester, from any of my 9mms. Over the years I've had a Taurus, several 3rd gen S&Ws and now a few Glocks.

    Our local WalMart raised the 9mm federal to $10.47 two or three weeks ago

    Same here in Summerville, Goose Creek and Moncks Corners, SC.
    Anyone else still have it at the original $9.47.
    There is plenty in stock now though....


    Someone told me that the 9mm NATO rounds are SAMMI rated 9mm +P.
    Can anyone validate that information?

  10. Nato 9mm ammo

    Have used it on the range many times in my glock without a single problem. Guess this doesn't help you much regarding your taurus problem except to say that glocks like Nato ammo.
