Steel-cased 9mm that's also American-made? Now you're talking!
Meet Winchester's USA Forged ammunition. Made right here in the USA and priced close enough to the Ruski steel cased ammo that you might be rethinking your round of choice if you're training on a budget.
These rounds come packaged with 150 rounds in the box - perfect for an afternoon of concentrated range training. Each of these 9x19 rounds comes with a full metal jacket and 115 grain projectile. Just about ideal for plinking, right?
If you've been shooting long, you surely know the Winchester name. Based in Southern Illinois, just across the state line from St. Louis, Winchester is truly a legendary company that's outfitted American shooters with reliable rounds for decades. These USA Forged rounds are produced at Winchester's factory in Oxford, Mississippi.

- I have been told that steel cases can expand and jam. I have not used steel cases so I am not sure if I should by them. The price is really good. thanks for the advice. Posted On: 7/24/2021 By: Richard M Rominger
- Thanks for reaching out Richard! You heard correctly – steel lacks the elasticity of brass, so it can't return to its original dimensions following ignition. This also means that steel can't seal off the chamber as effectively during ignition, which tends to cause more fouling to accumulate in the action. But I'll be honest, while some folks won't fire steel-cased because it jams more frequently, many others never note any issues with feeding and extraction. It's just very hard to predict which firearms are going to run through steel like clockwork and which aren't going to like them. Heck, some firearms even run MORE reliably with steel.
Personally, I love how much cheaper steel is myself, I've not noticed any more frequent jamming, and I don't mind cleaning my firearm a little more. My advice to you is to try a box of steel-cased ammo out before you invest in a whole case or anything. Try it out with realistic expectations that it might not function without any issues, see what you think, and then form your opinion based on that. I hope you're satisfied with this ammo's performance if you do try it out!
