That GECO is some of the best stuff around, and if you have Target Sports' membership, its $20/k shipped less than SGAMMO. The Fiocchi is good stuff too, but I decide based on cost AND quality.

I got some magtech 124gr from brownells for like 16.7 cents shipped earlier this week. Dunno about how hot it is. It stays subsonic for me, which is what I care about.

My Federal 9mm 124gr. HST standard pressure ammo came in yesterday.

Still.......waiting on the other ammo I orders back in January. Going to cancel within the week if nothing changes.

$95/year. That needs some thought.

The membership is worth it if you buy more than a couple cases per year. You can buy any quantity with free shipping, get 8% off regular prices, and they send you an undisclosed quantity of free ammo as a gift in Q3! Mine has paid for itself many times over.

Czarslayer- that just depends what you and your gun likes! Both are significantly better than something like wolf, winchester white box, or remington UMC

does target sport USA charge sales tax?

SG Ammo doesn't...yet...which can add up.

No tax for me. It's another one of those (depends on your state) if you get stuck with tax things.

AZ is kind of a screwed up state but I swear we have a "thou shall not be taxed" deal with other states. Nice in that regard just longer shipping times.

I am thinking of getting that membership because I think they have good prices and I like free ship.

Geco is not the company it was 10 years ago. Lots and lots of their stuff is not swiss made, esp value priced ammo.

well heck I read down on the reviews for this ammo at the sellers website and it IS Hungarian made ammo.

That makes it a pass.

That 95 per year buys you free shipping on anything you buy from them over a year...also gets you another 8% off your order. Three cases a year and you are saving money.

A no brainer.

Saw a box of GECO 9mm in an add yesterday, “made in USA” banner on the front. I wonder exactly who made that ammo.

8% off for me would essentially mean no tax on my purchases. I hate that they’re charging tax now, so this may be something to seriously consider

The Geco I got from Targetsports is Hungarian made, didn't think it was too hot. Good stuff.

The individual boxes say made in the EU, while the label on the case box says made in Hungary. (Yes Hungary is in the EU)
