Default georgia arms

Having a hard time getting Underwood, looking for an alternative. Has anyone shot Georgia Arms 10mm loads? Are they loaded hot or the same as other factory stuff?
Thanks,
Bronx

Never shot 10MM ammo but have used 45,357,38,9mm Georgia Arms ammo and been happy with results. Does not matter though as Every time I check their site in the last 6 months they are out of components for most everything.

Yukon,
For what I've read customers are very satisfied with G.A. products. I have plenty of weaker factory 10mm not loaded to full power. Don't want to buy more of the same.

As far as the quality goes, I think it is pretty good. I bought a bunch in 2008 or 2010, whenever the first break down in rational thinking happened. I bought quantities of 10mm, 45acp, and 44mag. I believe they all were satisfactory.

GA Arms is at every gunshow I have been to, always with lots of stock on- hand for sale. I have used several of their loads, and been very satisfied.

I don't live very far from Ga. Arms and what I have heard is the web site is not updated as often as it should be. So if you see a caliber showing Sold Out, it is better to give them a call. A friend went to their warehouse and they had almost every caliber and you could buy what you wanted,except 22lr. 22lr was limited to one box per customer.....Oh Yea, I have used every type of ammo Ga Arms sells, from rifle to handgun ammo and I have never had a problem. Great Ammo...Ray

If you call they will most likely have what you need in stock but for pickup only and nothing available for shipping. Fortunately I live close enough for pickup.

I placed an order thru GA a few days ago for .40 180 gr. and they are being shipped as of yesterday, Had them on my notice fav's and always showed out of stock. Then the other day they showed up on this forum and I placed an order with them and as I said they are on the way now. Hope to shoot some later this week.

Talking Georgia Arms

Last Sat. at 0800 at the Fort Walton, FL gun show the line of buyers at their tables was all the way around the show wall with a 1 1/2 hour wait. Same for the last show. I shoot 38+p, 45acp, 44 Spl and much more but not .40 cal. I have been shooting their ammo for a very long time and keep going back. They also produce cowboy loads for my older guns. They sell good products at a fair price. My 2 cents!!!

Just went to the range today, shot my .40cal "canned heat" from G.A. no problems, seemed as potent as other factory ammo I used and about as clean as others. Will keep them on my fav's.

I ordered 100 rds of .41 Mag from them a few weeks ago. Cost $25 per 50 + shipping. They loaded new Starline brass with 210g SWC at 800fps (cowboy load) and shot great. Was very pleasant shooting the M57 and I'll buy from them again.
