Default Freedom Ammo

Has anyone used their re-manufactured .45 Auto ammunition? I would appreciate any info. Thanks

Freedom Ammunition or Freedom Munitions? Freedom Ammunition is a rip-off site with many complaints and bad reviews! I'm not sure they are still in business. Freedom Munitions however, is a very respected and trusted ammo mfg plant.
I order most all my ammo from them, both remanufactured and new with never a problem.

Martybee hit the nail squarely on the head. Freedom Munitions 45ACP has been 100% for me. Freedom Ammo is pretty well known as a problem.

I concur! I order my .45ACP ammo from them as well. I generally order equal amounts of: HP and RN for the same price! (I like the nice clean holes the HP's leave in my target paper.)
I'm an advanced senior with failing eyesight, so it makes it much easier to see where I've placed my rounds in the target without having to retract it!

As far as their reman .45 goes the only issue I've ever had was a few rounds that were set back too deep but that was a long time ago. I've fired over 10k of their reman 9mm and had zero issues.

No experience with freedom ammunition but freedom munitions is good to go. I quit buying it once the price of new production ammo fell to the same level as their remanufactured

You're quite right! The margin of cost, between their new and remanufactured ammo has narrowed to the point where it is no longer prudent to buy the reloads!

Freedom Munitions is great. I wish they had a couple additional calibers that I like to shoot, but can't have everything. I mostly buy their .38Spl and .223. 9mm is almost as cheap at the local Cabelas.

I met a bunch of them at Triggercon in Tacoma WA last month. Impressed with their knowledge, and someone at Freedom is actually on the SAAMI board.

I agree with others, Freedom Munitions is good to go. I've bought and used their new & re-man ammo (9mm, .38, .357, .40, & .45) for the past few years without any issues.

I have used 9 and .45 mm reman from Freedom Munitions and it is very good stuff. I have no qualms at all about using it.
