Little known fact “I am a sucker for a decent gimmick”. Most times I’m disappointed but on a few rare occasions (fondly gazing at my Sig Sauer p229 LEGION) it’s worth the price. This of course explains why today Mr UPS left a package from MidwayUSA on my porch. Inside said box was a box of ‘Jesse James Black Label Ammunition 9mm 124gr JHP’. No need to reread it I did say Jesse James which is the same Jesse James that used to make kickass motorcycles and hosted Monster Garage. Turns out Jesse loves firearms, so much that he moved out of the Socialist Republic of California and to Texas where he has started making custom 1911’s & rifles plus some weird football looking suppressor thing (check out @jjfu Jesse James Firearms Unlimited to see some amazing custom work). Well Jesse has decided to enter the world of ammo manufacturing and partnering with Ammo-inc have introduced 2 lines of pistol & rifle rounds.

The Black Label Ammo comes in a fancy looking box, with as you can probably guess black ammo. It’s not actually black but more of a dark gunmetal color. It is a plated brass case that has a headstamp of Jesse James 9mm Luger. The bullet is a 124gr jacketed hollow point, I’d read somewhere people thought it was a standard Hornady XTP round but comparing the two it isn’t. Not sure who made the bullet but I’ll keep my eye out for a match. It has 3.8gr of powder and according to the ballistic specs of 1017fps if it isn’t a proprietary blend I’d guess it’s Universal. The round definitely looks ‘cool’ and I’m looking forward to playing around with it (testing). To answer the inevitable question “no this will not be my carry ammo” it’s just something to try and talk about.

I’ll try and post a follow up after testing with thoughts and chrono data in the near future.
The ammo it is pictured next to is a Sig Sauer 124gr jhp

‘The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford’, Andrew Dominik (2007)

By his own approximation, Bob assassinated Jesse James over 800 times. He suspected no one in history had ever so often or so publicly recapitulated an act of betrayal.
