    Question Question about Winchest White Box

    I was thinking about using Winchester White Boxe in a 165 grain .40 S&W. Anyway, my local gun dealer said that I would regret using it for practice because it shoots really dirty. WWB is the cheapest ammo I have been able to find, but if it's not good for the gun I don't want to use it. Please give me some opinions on WWB and suggestions for other ammo that is betty but doesn't cost a pretty penny (WWB is $16.98 for a 100 round box at Wally World).

    WWB is fine practice ammo...been using it for years without any problems at all. I don't think it's dirty, either...I've seen lots worse!

    And Wally World has the best prices, too

    Did this dealer have some other brand he was pushing off on you?

    Have to agree with Team American. Great practice ammo, best price at Wally World.

    He didn't have anything that he was pawning off, but he did suggest some other ammo that was slightly more expensive. He suggest goin to cheaperthandirt.com. Thanks for the opinions, I think I'll stick with WWB.

    I hate it, hate it, hate it. Don't like the way it feels, don't like the way it sounds, don't like the way it shoots, it's dirty, and did I mention I hate it?

    Unfortunately, the price is right. Ugh. So I do have a few boxes, but I try to look for Remington on sale and just save my pennies to buy the good stuff.

    I love it, I Love it, I Love it. I like the way it feels, like the way it sounds, like the way it shoots. I don't think it's dirty at all. It's all i shoot

    I for one, no matter what ammo I am using, feild strip and clean my weapon after a trip to the range. It doesn't matter how dirty the ammo is, my weapon will be clean after being used.

    I've never found WWB to be that dirty.

    Seems to have gotten dirtier over time but - can't beat the price often and it shoots well enough.

    Never had a problem with it. And I clean after every time I shoot no matter which ammo I use, so I don't care how dirty it is.

    Use WWB all the time at the range with no problems. I agree that you should always clean your gun after you use it. Want some really dirty ammo? Try Lancer. I've never seen ammo so bad!

    It unanimous: WWB is not that dirty, everyone cleans their gun after the range visit, nobody has problems with reliability and price. It works! Sometimes the simplest things in life are the most logical and reliable.
