Fenix Ammunition 10mm 180gr FMJ
« on: November 18, 2017, 11:27:53 AM »
   They make some pretty interesting offerings! Has anyone seen CFE loaded ammo?

I'm going to place an order since the response I got they said 1300 FPS out of a G20. That's pretty decent!

  The MFG got back to me saying the powder is Long Shot and not CFE.

Are you ordering the HP or the flat point? They list the flat point @ 1300fps also. That makes it the only fmj higher than the Sig ammo at that price point ( that I'm aware of). I'm thinking of ordering a couple hundred rounds myself

   He told me both are loaded to the same specification. I could use more FMJ's for range sessions as opposed to defensive rounds.

500 for $185 in Starline brass isn't too shabby if it really hits near 1300 FPS!

I placed an order for the 10mm FMJ and .357 Magnum. Let's see if it hits the numbers!

I received my order today. They get a couple of points for the cool tri-fold ammo boxes and fast shipping. I will need to take a few points off for the .357 ammos I received.

It is loaded in new Starline and looks like possibly a Montana bullet.

Looks like the old chronograph is about to get some exercise!

 I received mine yesterday as well. Ordered Tues and it shipped same day and it was delivered Wednesday.

 I ordered the 250 rd bulk pack which came loose in a plastic bag. I shot 50 rounds of it this morning through my limited and stock I. I don't have a chronograph,  but comparing it to the Sig fmj it felt like it had a little more pop to it. It shot flawless through  the limited, but it appears to have extremely hard primers as it had 2 separate failures to fire on the first pull with the stock I. A second pull and they.both fired. I read about this happening in light sprung competition guns, but I was very surprised this happened in a gun that I have put a 18lb hammer spring in.
  I'm anxious to see chronograph numbers for this.

I am too and thanks for that report! If it felt stronger than Sig rounds that says something.
