Atlanta Arms has released their new 124-grain Jacketed Hollow Point Elite 9mm ammunition. Under development for two years to give the shooter the greatest accuracy possible, the Atlanta Arms Elite 9mm 124 gr JHP is capable of shooting a 1.5-inch group from 50 yards. This ammunition is geared specifically towards competitive shooters.
Atlanta Arms is located in Covington Georgia. They currently employ over 30 highly trained professionals who all desire to make the highest quality ammunition possible. They currently operate out of a 20,000 square foot climate-controlled manufacturing facility. In addition to their new Elite 9mm 124 gr JHP ammunition, they also offer remanufactured ammunition.
Remanufactured ammunition is great for shooters who want more affordable ammunition for high-volume shooting. Each remanufactured case goes through an extensive cleaning, full-length sizing, and chamber checking process to ensure their remanufactured ammunition meets factory specifications.
Elite 9mm 124 Gr JHP
Many competitive shooters like myself face several challenges when selecting ammunition. Oftentimes competitions will require what is called a “Power Factor” to be met.
Basically, this means that the combined bullet weight and velocity must meet a specific power factor to ensure all competitors are at least adhering to a pre-determined standard, eliminating any tangible edge that may be provided by weaker ammunition.
The Elite 9mm 124 gr JHP comes in a little on the pricey side at about 42 cents per round. However, this is not quite as much as you’ll pay for +P ammunition or even self-defense ammunition. On top of that, if you’re not a frequent reloader, this is going to be the best way for you to get consistent loads that meet minor power factor for USPSA competitions. The 124 gr JHP will stabilize in most barrel twist rates found in pistols.

With competition ammo, it’s all about consistency, having loads that don’t cycle properly or hit your intended target can quickly turn a fun match into a frustrating test of endurance. Atlanta Arms is looking to replace that uncertainty with consistency. What are your thoughts on this new offering from Atlanta Arms? Do you have any experience with Atlanta Arms ammunition?
