    That maxxtech steel is crap, the brass not much better, lost of issues ftf, fte in our club guns.

    However I pickup as much of the brass as I can, when reloaded it makes perfect hunting ammo for the carbine and I don't stress about brass recovery.

    Normal load for me is 5.2gn powder / 115gn pill which makes minor power factor in my glock 17.

    Now with the maxxtech, the same pill only requires 2gn of powder to make minor power factor. And seating pills is easy, push them in until they sit on the shelf in the case.

    I spent a fair bit of time on the actual powder needed, starting very low and working up, did want to destroy anything :-)

    It is an XDM Tommy but yes you are correct.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    A number of people are shooting the Belmont stuff in Christchurch, and they are all happy from what I've heard.

    If you use Maxxtech, DON'T leave any cases on the range. If someone picks one up and mixes it in with their normal cases, it likely that they will go over persure and blow some shit up!

    I've ordered 1k of Belmont 124gr fmj just to see how long it lasts me over 6 months.

    It's really addictive!

    $25 a box through the club.

    However Aoraki is out of 9mm at the moment so hence going for Belmont which at 1000 rounds I've sourced through my local for $22 a box

    Most of the guys that shoot factory at our club uses Geco 124gr, from Aoraki which is $370/1000. However, it sounds from other posts that they are sold out at the moment. Plus Geco brass is good quality for when/if you get into reloading down the line.

    Ended up buying a 1K tin of Belmont. Picked it up for $340.

    Cheers for the information.

    I might have to give Belmont another shot, I didn't have great results with it, but I found my front sight had play in in it after I finished the can. Tightened and loctite and it shoots great with my handloads (used the Belmont brass)

    I have shot heaps(1+K) of Geco through my MP9 without "A" malfunction of any kind when i started, many more HandLoads and now firing S&B 115gr also without any problem. They are been sold in "our" shop (Custom Guns - Invercargill) at $399.99 for 1000 rounds, works a treat…
