Can't comment on the .380 yet, but I've shot thousands of rounds of GA's "canned heat" in .40 S&W and .223. Good bang for the buck ... at least before the recent climb in ammo prices.

Sunday I placed an order for 500 rounds of 380 ACP with Georgia Arms. This morning I followed up and was told to please be patient. I would get it in 5 to 7 weeks time. At least some more is coming, and I keep plenty on hand, so a month or so wait is no big deal to me. Besides my LCP has been back in Arizona now for two weeks anyways.

A few weeks ago I ordered 500 rounds of 380 ACP from Georgia Arms. I contacted them last week to see how things stood. They told me that there was a very good probability that they would have some made up by the end of February. They called me a couple of days ago to tell me that they had the ammo and wanted to know if I wanted to pick it up this weekend at the Eastman gun Show at the Agri Center in Perry, Georgia. They said I would still after paying admission to the gun show save about $15 dollars in shipping and handling costs. Of course I thought that was a great idea. I went to the gun show Saturday afternoon after all the storms coming through Georgia passed on by. The folks from Georgia Arms told me that they had just finished shipping out 50,000 (fifty thousand) rounds of 380 ACP, most of which had been pre ordered in advance. They told me that their problem is getting the actual bullets. That they had the other parts on hand. They also said that they had no idea when they would be getting in the bullets. The only other 380 ACP ammo I saw was from Alabama Arms. They had maybe eight boxes (50 rounds per box) left that were going for $19.95 a box.

This gun show was packed. I saw more families together at a gun show than I have ever seen before. There also appeared to be a lot of women there looking to buy guns, apparently for themselves.

I did not see any LCP's or P3AT's on any tables at this show. I saw one gun that I was interested in and that was an older Colt nickel plated snub nosed 38 Special for $679. However I just looked at it, laid it back down and walked on. I am saving my dollars for either a Kahr or Sig 380 ACP when they finally get down my way.

Couple questions about GA ammo.

Is this Ammo re-loads or is it factory new?
Can you re-load it?

Call 770-459-5117 and talk to Kim. I think they call it remanufactured ammo, meaning the cases have been used but everything else is new. It is good stuff, that much I can testify too!!

Another thumbs up for Georgia Arms!

I have been shooting their ball reload ammo for the last year or so.

I have only shot like 50-60 rounds through the LCP, but at least a thousand through my Colt PocketLite. Not a single problem.

Yesterday I shot about 70 rounds of Georgia Arms ball ammo and another 20 or so rounds of CCI Blazer. I had one failure, and I caused that by limp wristing my first shot as I tried to shoot with my left hand instead of my right hand. The Georgia Arms ammo seems to have a little more kick to it than the CCI Blazer ammo.
