Default Monarch steel case 9mm HP

Has anyone use the monarch steel case 9mm 145gr hp from academy? Being subsonic does the hollow point actually expand?

Can you post a link? The only monarch HP I see on their site is 124gr brass case

Monarch is all rebranded ammo. The brass case is usually PPU and the steel case is usually brown bear

Sorry I don't have a link. I just happened to be in the store and see it. It is steel case and the bullet look like it may be zinc of something like that but it has a small carter at the tip that I quess they are calling the hollow point they were on sale for $10.99. That seemed like it was a little expensive for steal case but I bought a few just to see how they are. I will not be able to test for a while thats why I was hopeing some of you guys had experience with them.

Google "Silver Bear 9mm 145gr hollow point" see if it is same-same, and if yes...you can get plenty of reviews.

From what I read the bullet does not expand for anybody.

Yes that looks very similar except the monarch bullets are not copper washed or jacketed. I quess the good news i didn't really pay anymore then what the silver bear cost.
