Whether you're a fan of the 9 mm cartridge or not, there's no denying the round is popular. It's nowhere near as inexpensive as it used to be, but it's still one of the least-expensive, centerfire handguns round out there, and for that reason alone there's a lot of shooters who keep some on hand.

Freedom Munitions has started to offer some bargain 9 mm that is anything but cheap. The company's American Steel line, championed by professional shooter B.J. Norris--who is now the sales manager for Freedom Munitions--was introduced earlier this year as an affordable, reliable option. Cartridges are steel-cased, but with brass plating to ensure proper feeding. 

Norris explained the impetus behind the American Steel line: "Freedom Munitions exists primarily to satisfy the high volume shooters need for high quality, cost effective range ammunition. Now, as we start to mature as a company, we're releasing several premium products such as HUSH, specifically designed for use in suppressors, and our latest innovation, American Steel."

Presently only the 115-grain 9 mm is offered under the American Steel line, but more bullet weights, types and caliber options are expected to become available.  

MSRP: $10.75/50-round box.

Handgun Grip Vs. Hold: What's the Difference?

Grip and hold on the firearm are often viewed by handgun shooters as one and the same. However, seasoned defensive and competitive shooters break down handgun shooting stability into two distinctly but equally essential subcomponents: grip versus hold.
