Your .45 ACP is a big, bold gun, and you need equally bold ammunition for training time. These FMJ rounds are made just for training and plinking purposes, and at 230 grain, they’re nice and heavy. .45 ACP was created back in 1904 to meet the needs of the U.S. Cavalry after their current cartridges failed to perform well during the Philippine-American War. This cartridge started its life as a military round and Military Ballistic Industries – M.B.I. – supplies a large quantity of target rounds to the military today. If you want to feed your .45 ACP-chambered handgun at an affordable price, these rounds are what you’ve been looking for.
230 grain means extra punch upon impact, and these rounds do not disappoint. They’re FMJ rounds, so they don’t expand, so they’re ideal for training when you can be sure of your backstop. Just because they’re heavy doesn’t mean they don’t move fast down-range, though; they have a muzzle velocity of 820 feet per second. And they have a good target round impact power with a muzzle energy of 343 foot-pounds. These are also made with reloadable, boxer-primed brass cases.
M.B.I. has a sterling reputation for their production of remanufactured rounds. They supply those rounds not only to the US Military but also to many law enforcement agencies and ranges, who use them for training purposes. By purchasing this 100-round sealed plastic bag of remanufactured .45 ACP, you, too, can benefit from M.B.I.’s experience and stringent adherence to quality methods. Although their cases are remanufactured, all other components are new and come from well-known sources such as Hornady. So if you want to do some training at a great price, try M.B.I.
WORD OF CAUTION. This ammunition is remanufactured. Some firearms manufacturers warn that you shouldn’t use remanufactured ammunition in their firearms, so check out your owner’s manual before purchasing this ammo. Also, remanufactured ammo may be more prone to ruptures, failures to fire, ejection failures, squibs, or other functional problems, than new ammunition would be. These issues could cause damage to your firearm or worse, severe physical injury or death. Don’t let other shooters use you remanufactured ammo unless you first make it clear that it is remanufactured.

Very Good Ammoon 7/25/16
I bought this ammo with the intent on using it for breaking in my 1911's. When I got to the range I was not disappointed. No misfires or any other problems were encountered. I will be buying more of this ammo in the near future both in .45 ACP and in .38 Special.
will buy againon 1/17/15
I finally got to try these through my SAM Commodore, a 1911 variant. Not one failure. I noticed no difference from factory new.
scary pooron 7/18/14
Of the 100 rounds purchased, all had good primer strikes with a good gun. 24 failed to fire. Ammo for sale quickly took care of the problem with a refund but I am glad that my life didn't count on the ammo.
Good stuffon 6/6/14
Shot 100 rd through 4 different 1911's. no problems at all. I'll be buying more.
I'm buying them againon 2/23/14
I've shoot 100 plus of these through my 1911 never had any problems
would buy againon 10/21/12
I purchased two bags. The ammo was a mix and match but everything looked good. Both of my hand guns shot this ammo just fine. I will continue to purchase this till they don't offer it anymore.
Decent ammoon 11/8/11
I purchased two of these. The ammo was a mix and match kind of deal. most were in great condition. There were a few shells that were starting to oxidize and turn green. Other than that its great to get used to a brand new handgun like i did, or just cheap shooting fun with friends and family.
