    Lots of 9mm CCI on sale in my area. Coincidence?

    I think not....

    This is bad news. The older load shot well in pretty much everything.

    You cant go wrong with the lawman. It's the only 9mm I buy any more. Not only is it good stuff, but both the 124gr and 147gr are $183/case shipped from targetsportsusa with their ammo prime membership.

    So is the new AE using a plated bullet in place of the jacketed bullet?

    AD9FP has been my go-to for practice rounds to match with my HST 147 carry ammo for years. I've still got cases to go (presumably the old design) but will start trying Lawman 147.

    And I thought it was just my shooting going downhill!
