Better Than Hollywood Cartridge Animation

You know I love a good manufacturing / render / making of:

Geco-AmmunitionVery nice.  The foreign ammunition company is called Geco.  I don’t know who did that video for them, but it’s off the chain.

I held my breath up until the “firing” sequence to see if the entire cartridge would leave the barrel haha.

Kind of funny the modesty when they were showing the targets at the end… no “ragged hole” here guys, don’t get it twisted.

Thoughts?  Would shoot a pretentious match with?

Looks good, I’m interested in just getting the bullets and also the science behind “stability grooves”

It’s probably pure bullshit.

Geco does make good ammo, however. I bought a case of 9mm 124gr off of AIM a few years back. It’s among the best general purpose/target ammo you can buy off the shelf.

It looks like pure crap. Just a marketing scheme to give a reason for the grooving beyond, “Our manufacturing process does this.”

My bet is that they crimp the jacket in like that to avoid material flow as they form the bullet’s shape. It looks interesting, the marketing wanted to capture it, and viola, stupid words.

And the bullets are spinning super fucking fast in their videos, several times per bullet length, when it is usually 1-16″ or so for pistol rounds.

I shoot 124 grain FMJ 9mm GECO ammo when I can get it. The brass is good for reloads. They seem to be loaded pretty hot compared to a lot of other stuff. If I had to guess I would say they are loaded to NATO rather than SAAMI spec. I haven’t found them to be super accurate, but I’ve never put them in a rest to really test their accuracy either. I was told that they are actually owned by Dynamite/Nobel along with another ammo manufacturer, but I haven’t verified that.

Anyway, if the price is right, I’ll shoot it. Also I was surprised the paper target looks realistic, and not like it was hit by a wadcutter.
