Hi Trap, this brand is actually well known in the Philippines and is the largest manufacturer of firearms and ammo here. This is a Philippine brand and it is pretty reliable. Most people in LE, Security, and the military use it. Don't worry, it is safe to use. I used to use these though I preferred CCI Stingers before.At .13+cents per round that is NOT a deal. That is only 2 bricks of 22lr ammo. It comes out to $75 per brick. It should not be more than $50 for 1k!! Even the ammo scalpers were only charging $50 per brick at the gun shows I saw. If you wait and look hard it can be bought for $25 per brick. Don't pay desperate prices!! It just keeps the price up longer.... Also this is a brand of ammo I don't know anything about. Be careful before buy unknown brand ammo.
