USE/SPORT: Steel Challenge Competition
Just shot my first full evening local steel match with the 100gr Steel Challenge load. The ammunition is running well, with zero malfunctions in my Shadow 2s, and I'm excited for more time behind the trigger with these special loads. I also have to call out Atlanta's exceptionally quick fulfillment and shipping - just received my second shipment and both deliveries have arrived more quickly than any ammo I've ordered before. Thank you Atlanta Arms!
Just purchased a couple of boxes of this 100 gr Steel Challenge ammo to see what the fuss was about. Initial observations after 100 rounds:
1) Ran fine in my (near) stock Shadow 2s (I'll be more certain of this after a few thousand rounds).
2) Appreciably lower recoil than what I've been shooting.
3) Running the plate rack, measured an average of 0.05 seconds quicker per transition (sight picture returned noticeably quicker). Obviously all transitions are not created equal.
Until or unless an issue arises, I'll finish out my Steel season using this ammo. It's impossible not to take advantage of...an advantage. Thank you!
Less recoil than standard 9mm FMJ. Cycled flawlessly in our Sig P365XLs but failed to cycle repeatedly for my wife in our Glock 17. I suspect her soft trigger action induced this. I had no issues at all with the same pistol. To conclude, at 60 cents a round it's a little pricy for me but unquestionably good ammo.
Your Steel Challenge 100 grain ammo does exactly what I had hoped it would do - make it possible for my wife to shoot a small 9 mm well for training. Thanks for making this excellent product. I've ordered more!
Unfortunately this particular round does not reliably cycle in my Glock 19 Gen 2. A spring change might help but I am not inclined to do so.
Great Steel Challenge ammo
Some of the best feeding most consistent ammo I’ve had the pleasure to use. I shoot several hundred round per week in my compact carry, 1911s, etc, and I could not be more pleased with the quality!
This ammo is amazing! Virtually no muzzle snap/recoil. I just shot it a Steel Challenge using my wife’s G34 (12# spring) and was in love!
I practiced a bit beforehand to re-familiarize myself with the lighter pistol and SRO (I usually shoot Limited/.40). I laughed out loud after the first round - I had never fired anything like it - soft recoil, yet solid and dependable cycling. Incredible ammo!
I shot my first match today with this ammo and I truly impressed, made my gun shoot very flat.
