This isn’t a robust and well-rounded review. It’s just a simple and small data point on reliability for you to consider. I had purchased and fired 500 rounds of HSM’s remanufactered 9mm Luger ammunition (9x19mm/9mm Parabellum) about 9 months ago from the Sportsman’s Guide. They had a 500 round box for $75.99 which equals out to 15.2¢/round (not including taxes that my government is going to waste). This ammunition was very cheap compared to other brass-cased ammo. Granted, it is remanufactured ammo, which means that the cases are not new and have been used at least once before. Regardless, it still makes for good practice/plinking ammo. So, without further ado, I present to you guys the reliability data I gathered on HSM’s Remanufactured 9mm Luger ammunition.
Like I said, I fired 500 rounds of this stuff. There was a total of 5 malfunctions. This means that this ammo functioned flawlessly 99.0% of the time. There were no catastrophic malfunctions or squib loads. And, honestly, that is what I feared when I first bought this ammo. Here is a further breakdown of the round count data.
