Academy Sports has an entire line of Monarch ammo; 9MM, .40 S&W, .223, and 7.62x39. Has any one used any of it? It's marked "Made in Russia" and labeled as steel cases. The price is reasonable; $9.99 for 50 9mm, $5.99 for 20/.223
I had some in 40 S&W (before the shelves went empty). It shot good. Pretty sure the stuff I bought was either Serbian or Kroat. Those guys have been shooting each other for generations. I think that they have gotten good at ammo.
