So I found a deal on some 9mm (115gr) Israel Military Industries ammo (brass cased 90s production). I've read some sites that say this is corrosive. Anyone here use it before?

Also thinking of picking up some 5.56 (55gr) 90s production too. Opinions on this is also wanted.

Don't buy loose/bulk surplus, it's oftentimes very bad.
Corrosive is OK if you clean your guns.
Don't shoot IMI black-tip 9MM in handguns!

I had some of the same questions. The ammo that I'm looking at was in 9MM and was FMJ.

Eli-can you clarify what you mean about IMI Black-Tip? Would the round actually be black? sorry for such a Noob question....

I always found IMI to be great ammo. Back before Clinton got in I bought a bunch of IMI in various caliber .45, .40, 9mm, .357 & .223. still have a little of each. Their .308 match ammo shot better the Federal match in my gun.

I saw some IMI 9mm going for next to nothing a few weeks ago and wish I'd jumped on it for the G17, which eats everything it's fed without complaint. $150/k or something amazing like that...

Thanks Eli- what I found appears from the picture to be just FMJ without the tip being painted. They didn't have it in stock, but it was at the warehouse and should be in Friday.

I originally ordered a bunch of ammo from RGuns (9mm, .45, and .223) but after seeing the post from guys who received their ammo I canceled my order
