    VCROWN vs HST

    I am referring specifically to 124 grain 9mm, not the +P type.

    Is there any major opinions either way between these two offerings?

    I know the Sig was on a Black Friday sale for $10 per 20 rounds at my local stores but even at regular price the HST is almost twice as much.

    I bought a new pistol and part of my new pistol thing is to run at least 3 or 4 magazines of carry ammo through it to ensure reliability. I've been carrying HST for a long time and I have no problems with it (except the price!) My little test (if using HST) would be over $100 bucks. Not the end of the world but hey...

    But what prompted the question was I was seeing ads for VCROWN locally for under $10 bucks for a Black Friday sale and figured why not give it a try.

    If someone wants to use their LEO creds to help get me some HST that would work fine too :) I saw one place that has em for a good price but you have to be active LEO or whatever to get the advertised price.

    I’m a big fan of Gold Dots too. But the local shop ran out and only has the G2s now. Considering switching to HSTs. They sell primarily to LEOs, but sell almost everything to everyone.

    I bought 4 boxes of the VCrown just because it was on a Black Friday sale. The whole point isn't to have a massive stash of carry ammo but to do my function test as well. Buying some HST... it's like Federal thinks they are lined with gold or something.

    When I see some prices online that are more reasonable than $28 per box of 20 I will pick some more up. They might be good but not worth getting robbed over.

    $80 for 100 rounds. What did you pay for stuff you don't normally use?

    Man, it's insane. In the store they want $28 bucks for 20 rounds. I am assuming all these are the same ammo but they want $20 to $25 for 50 rounds. The latter isn't so bad. Maybe I will have to buy some online.

    The stuff that was on sale was $40 total for 80 rounds (it was a Black Friday thing, normally not that cheap). It's worth a try but I want to get back to worrying about ballistics gel tests. LOL

    That said the last time (a really long time ago) I guess I had more disposable income because I remember running 3 or 4 different types of ammo to see what (the gun) liked. I guess I am partial to HST or whatever. I am not married to it by any means... but $28 bucks plus tax for 20 rounds... nope. It isn't that much better.

    I should have watched more Youtube before my little impulse buy. LOL.

    So far I am not that impressed with those VCROWN.
