    Winchester now makes economical 9mm load

    Winchester now makes economical 9mm load

    Early this year, Winchester unveiled a new ammo choice, a 9mm steel-cased load with a high-round count and lower price point.

    The new ammo is made in Winchester’s Oxford, Mississippi plant. Called USA Forged, the ammo is the first from a major American manufacturer to have a steel case in 9mm caliber.

    Steel-cased pistol ammunition is normally sourced in other countries, like Turkey, Italy, or Mexico. It’s generally more economical than brass-cased ammo. Winchester’s USA Forged gives shooters who want to buy American and save money a new and attainable choice. The ammo Is available now at many major retailers.

    “USA Forged is proof that better products can be made right here in the United States while driving value for the consumer,” said Brett Flaugher, Winchester Ammunition vice president of marketing, sales and strategy.

    USA Forged brand casings are coated with a proprietary substance said to enhance reliability and corrosion resistance. The boxer primers and clean-burning powder used in manufacturing mean the ammunition is suitable for extended shooting sessions.

    A brass jacket covers the 115 grain lead bullet. Winchester stats show a muzzle velocity of 1,190 feet per second.

    Current packaging is limited to a 150-round box. Prices as of this writing are $31-36 per box, putting the USA Forged brand neck-and-neck with foreign loads where price is concerned.

      I've heard that it's absolutely filthy. Can't remember the site that had the review.

      I have no first hand experience though.

            At last years NRA convention I was talking to a company rep that makes reloading supplies, said the Win white box is so filthy because the powder they use for that is imported from some eastern European countries. Would make sense because that TulAmmo stuff is filthy too.

              It's not bad range ammo either. Better than win white box IMHO.

                I remember reloading with Winchester 748 and it was the dirtiest powder I ever used. Was very happy when we switched to Reloader 15

                  i am surprised it took so long for a company in the USA to make steel cased rounds. I have been shooting steel 223 and 9mm for a while. Its dirtier but i do not mind cleaning the gun.

                  brass sometimes is a waste. especially if you do not reload. with ammo pricing always rising, i am glad more steel is going to be availiable.
