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.

There’s less training conducted with the defensive shotgun than with any other defensive firearm. This is partly because shotguns recoil the hardest, and recoil is not something shooters typically enjoy. It’s also partly because shotguns—at least compared with handguns and carbines—are a bit expensive to shoot, especially if you’re training with 00 buckshot.
