History of MBI Ammunition
Military Ballistics Industries, also known as MBI, is a company that has made a relatively recent entry into the world of ammunition manufacturing. They sell new and remanufactured ammunition. Their product line today includes ammunition for all of the most popular calibers on the market. MBI has a good reputation for selling high quality remanufactured pistol ammunition, and they are also known for the low cost approach they take in packaging their products. The calibers they produce in the greatest abundance are 9mm and 40 S&W. They have recently added .223 to their lineup.
Don't be fooled by the plastic bags. The cartridges inside those bags are high quality and built with high quality components. They fill the casings with Hodgdon powder, cap them with Hornady bullets and plug the base with CCI primers, not to mention other high quality and well known ammunition components.
Some shooter feel that remanufactured ammunition is a product of lesser quality. It is true that poorly remanufactured ammunition will be lower quality, but some remanufactured ammo is assembled with care and quality parts. The brass case is the only reused component in remanufactured ammo. The case is usually the component of ammunition that is the most expensive, but it is also easy to recycle. Remanufacturing is essentially industrial scale reloading, so it is relevant to consider the claim of some reloaders that they can reuse a case 3 or 4 times easily, or even as many as 10 times, if the amount of pressure generated by the cartridge is low enough.
Attention to detail and product consistency are what really set apart a good remanufacturer of ammunition. MBI manufactures their ammunition to exacting standards, delivering a high quality product which makes a great choice for training and practice.

"Fired about 150 rounds each through Walter PPS and S&W Shield. No FTFs and both guns showed very little residue."

"I've fired about 200 rounds using my Glock 17 thus far and had no problems whatsoever. For the price, I have recommended your product to others. Thanks."
- Tomaz said:
"The only reason I don't give a 5 stars on quality is because it leaves a LOT of powder behind to clean up after shooting. Other than that, I enjoyed your products. "
- Bramson Muges said:
"Fired about fifty rounds through my XDs. Had two failures to extract with the spent casing stuck halfway in the chamber. Both times same exact stoppage. I think the shell may have been weak and expanded to much. I think they need to find better brass. Although it functioned in my Glock just fine. So it can't be too bad. "
- Charles said:
"I went through about 500 today. In the first 100 I had a fired shell jam so the action couldn't even open. This was my S&W M&P 9 which cycles ANYTHING. Had to hammer a screwdriver down the barrel. Everything fired fine again until a little over 300 rounds and had the same type of jam, except it was live! I whacked the gun against a table about 10 times facing down range until it finally fired off, still couldn't open the action, so applied the hammer/screwdriver technique. Pretty great ammo, but I'm assuming a few were loaded a bit too hot and the brass expanded to the point of jamming up in the barrel."
- Big Jim said:
"Purchased this MBI ammo last year and did bot get to shoot it until recently and was quite surprised at the accuracy I was able to achieve with this ammo. Mine came in two small boxes and they fit right in a 50cal ammo can. Great ammo for the money and will purchase again from these fine sellers."
- Ray said:
"Price was great, but I do not like the bags, when you open all the ammo goes all over. I prefer boxes. I shot over 250 rounds no misfires. "
- Zaza said:
"We have had no problems with the ammo and will buy again. "
- watermn said:
"bought this ammo to run during a 2 day Uzi course. shot as well if not better than some of the factory orginal stuff. 25 rounds in 2 1/2 seconds in a 4 inch group. "
- PistolPete said:
"Fine product I will order again. A win-win. Good range time & support NRA. What's not to like?"
- bigbukt said:
"haven't had time to shoot yet but with today's prices this was a great deal definitely will shop here again "
- Little D said:
"Feeds Great The Only problem is the small plastic bags that they place 100 rounds per bag alot of them had busted open so they might as well just sell "
- Ryanxd9 said:
"Great ammo. Best service and turn around. Thank you keep up the best service."
- Tim said:
"So far it has worked well, as requested, No issues."
- dp said:
"Will be ordering again soon as ammo is good for target practice and arrives quick\ly"
- Daniel said:
"No jams, fail to fires and great fun"
- Chibob said:
"I purchased a Sig 2022 and called Sig for break-in information. They said they liked people to shoot 124 gr. rounds for the first 100 rounds to properly break-in the weapon. I purchased the MBI ammo for that purpose. I"ve since ordered 500 more rounds of 9 mm and 200 res of .40 cal . No FTE's, No FTF's with a new gun. Think that says it all "
- Flametamer said:
"Bought 400 rounds, shot 230 so far. No problems. Every round fed and shot just like it should. Going to buy more of this. "
- Matt said:
"Ordered 1,000 when supplies were tighter a few months back. First few hundred worked fine (not one problem), but then in the last 100-bag alone, I had 2 FTEs and one misfire that was so bad, I had to drill the bullet out of the bore. Hope it's just a coincidence they all came at the same time. Will fire the last 400 rounds with curiosity before ordering more."
- freddy said:
"I used one gen2 glock 19 one gen4 19 one gen 3glock 17 the only problem was the new only 20 rounds through it will fix it self after a couple hundred rounds.nice for the price when you cant find the time to load your own."
- KD said:
"Received my order quickly. No problems in my P-95, 92FS, CW9. Packaged well for shipping. I'll be back!"
- rip01 said:
"Works great, will buy again, target practice load, my 92F"
- Mustangrob said:
"Value was great, quality was ok, a lot of rounds seemed to have small dings/dents in the casings as well as the bullet itself. Performance is still a little in doubt, shot numerous rounds thru my Beretta 92FS and did well, thru my new Nano didnt perform as good and had one FTE, maybe because the gun is new, I dont know."
- dennis said:
"Shot about 300the rds thru a new ruger sr9. Had a couple of failed ejections,it maybe because of the new gun.im sure this will correct as the gun gets broken in.satisfied with everything else.just a little distressed that the ammo here has doubled in price.if it corrects I will be buying more."
- maur800 said:
"ordered 2 9's and 2 40's had no problems with either of them, quick service and curtious, will definitly order again. thank you"
- Orion1958 said:
"I can say the value is great , and quality also is great, and performance is great for target practice and general plinking. No problem with the ammo and glad to recommend it for others to use. "
- Steve said:
"Went to the range and shot over 250 rounds from my Walther PPQ40. Not a single jam or misfire. Will definitely buy more! "

- knox86 said:
"I got 500 rounds about 6 months ago and so far haven't had a single jam or malfunction at the range out of my XDm. could be a little cleaner but i've worse out of new non reman ammo so not much to complain about there. I would shoot this over any blazer/tula any day. "
- emt59 said:
"You came through with ammo on hand when I was having trouble finding it. The ammo was competitively priced along all others."
- SteveGun357 said:
"Only one had a damged jacket. I didnt even load it in the magazine. The other 999 have fired perfectly. That is a 99.9% excellence record with me. Good deal. Could not believe how quickly you shipped."
- MP 272 said:
"Ordered the 1000 rounds - haven't shot any yet. It is clean and well made - great service! I have confidence enough to use it as personal carry! Thanks AmmoNet Dave - Sarasota"
- gasman said:
"A little concerned about reloads, however my concerns soon vanished as the ammo performed flawlessly."
- Vorbdad said:
"Even though this ammo was reloads, we experienced maybe only two jams out of 500 or so rounds shot so far. My brother and I are very happy with our results. Will definitely buy some more. "
- Steve said:
"I was impressed with the service from Ammo.com as well as the timeframe of delivery. The 40 cal MBI FMJ 180 gr. ammo looked good, fired flawlessly, and appears to be fairly clean doing it. I've only fired approximately 30 rds. through my Glock 23 gen 4 so far, but am satisfied with no jamming or ejection problems...would definitely consider in the future. "
- kwaddell said:
"I needed decent target range rounds for my Glock 22. Even though these are reloads not a single round jammed. All of the rounds fired cleanly. We must have gone through 100 - 200 rounds at the range. Good price. Good rounds. Will definitely purchase again."
- Scott said:
"Bought 500 rounds and have gone through approx. 200 and haven't had any issues. The one thing that bothered me slightly was 1 out of every 20 or so rounds was steel cased. It's not enough for me to knock it down a point in the review but it was advertised as "Brass" and it wasn't all brass."
- Jas said:
"Fired all 100 the first time out with 100% success. I didn't notice any difference from shot to shot like in some reloads. Every ejection was smooth and never had a hangup which is most important."
- Top Shot said:
"I went to the range and pumped 100 rounds out and no problems at all. Great value..."
- The Man said:
"pumped 400 rounds through my hand gun with no problems. It was a good deal."
- The Patriot said:
"Used 200 rounds at the range without any problems, Great value."
- The Big Man said:
"Great value for everyday range shooting. No problems what so ever with every single round."
- Gene said:
"They come in a convenient bag. They all fire when the trigger is pull. I see no variation in the ballistics,"
- td said:
"good for the price"
- Bill said:
"Purchased rounds for girlfriend, though she hasnt fired any yet they seem like quality target rounds. And all ''100'' where accounted for. "
- The Greek said:
"ammo performed well no miss feeds or failures to go boom. would hope in the future that the packing would include a box with a tray just a thought. not the hottest load ive ever shot but all in all a good target load."
- Carlos said:
"Well shooting ammo, no FTE or FTF. Solid plastic bag, some brass casing mixed in with nickel case, but did not affect quality. As soon as back in stock, I will be buying more. Thanks"
- ant said:
"These were the best value I could find for a box of 44mags that were not lead rounds. They feed perfectly and the right amount of kick. Overall I was impressed by the price and how good the bullets were."
- rehdeer said:
"Shot this through brand new Hi Point Carbine. Functioned flawlessly. Will definetly buy again. Do wish it was available in +P"
- Scott said:
"I purchased 300 rounds of this ammo to break in my Kahr mk40, I put 80 rounds thru it fresh out of the box and never fired, even though this ammo was reloads w/ mixed brass I had no problems what so ever, no stove pipes, FTF or FTE and accuracy was good as long as I did my part. Would purchase again."
