Hello. Though I've read a post or two in which the writer says American Ammo worked for him, I've found just the opposite, with huge variations in velocity shot for shot and the brass varies so much that when I find it on the range, I leave it. I have reloaded some of it, but often primers seem like they'll fall out. I avoid the stuff. In 9mm, I tried some a few years ago that about 1 out of 3 loaded rounds wouldn't chamber, but never had that problem with .45 ACP. There's better ammo to be had.

I fired 4 rounds... 2 failed to go into battery, one stovepiped and the primer fell out ... and one was OK.
To say the least I ain't gonna carry that stuff or buy anymore....

I tried the .38 spcl and I'd say 10% of it takes two or more hits to the primer to set 'em off. That really makes for a long session when you have to wait and see if they're a hang fire or not. I haven't had any hang fires though. It also isn't light hits from the gun. I got the same results with different guns.
Don't get any.

I tried this stuff only once, the first time I shot a G26 9mm. I had never fired a Glock before, so I thought the gun was lousy. The range master told me it was the ammo...it's junk!
Just my opinion.

I haven't had any personal use of it but I do know that when we run a class and someone has a malfunction in a .45 we have noted that most of the time it is either an American relmanufactured round or it is a handload in an American case (which often is headstamped AMER). Not all of their cases are bad mind you but it seems a fair per centage have undersized - or rounded rims.
Can't say about the revolver ammo. It also might work better in autos with a pivoting extractor and big "footprint".
