Not Bad At All
By CharlieSaw this and looking at the price decided to take a shot (pun intended) at a couple hundred rounds. I ran this stuff through a new model Vaquero. I had primarily been running Fiocchi 250 gr. and Ultramax 200 gr. On price, the Ultramax was quite a bit more a round and the Fiocchi, slightly higher. So Leadville won the price war.
At the range, the 200 gr Leadville and Ultramax delivered less recoil than the 250 gr. Fiocchi, which is a plus. I can't give you percision accuracy because I was shooting steel at 25-30 feet and not paper. Thus, can't tell you which had the tighter groups. I can tell you shooting five rounds at a time, I dropped the plate with every shot using the Leadville but I can not say this was any better than the other ammo because I did not shoot as many rounds with the others as I wanted to see what this ammo would do. Cleaning the weapon on my return home I can not say this ammo shot any cleaner or dirtier than the other two brands had demonstrated to me in the past. In any event, it was acceptable by all means.
Last thing would be appearance. And while that is not as important as reliability, accuracy, and cost, it is worth mentioning. This ammo has very nice looking brass and bullets that yes, looks better than the other two mentioned. So yes, it looks better in the gun belt if that means anything to you.
Bottom line is, I like this stuff. It cost less than what I have been using. It performs at least as well (possibly better), and it looks good. I will buy more and I can and do recommend others to at least try a box or two.
By Size MattersBought two boxes of this stuff to see if it was worth buying and I was surprised how good it was. It does seem a little dirty but for the price I can live with that, I clean my guns after shooting them anyway. This is a good value and I will be buying more soon.
Please don't discontinue this ever!
By Jersey gun guyI don't really have the time to reload. This gives me the low recoil and that awesome lead bullet look in my belt while at matches. I shoot these through my uberti cattlemans. Not many places for matches in NJ and PA so it's nice to be able to buy bulk cowboy loads for a reasonable price. Thanks.
Nice plinking ammo
By ShawnLighter but accurate loads. Not as hot and a bit dirtier than the FM copper stuff, but great for plinking.
