    Shoot it all the time its a little dirty....well really dirty. I like PMC a little better but its all right stuff. Have fired through all my guns with only a little problem but would not use it for carry. Only Speer gold dot for me. Its all new ammo.

Not an exact duplicate of the carry ammo, but close enough for me.
    No offense taken, sorry if I sounded a little gruff there.

    I've had 1 squib in 200 rounds in a G26 with WWB from WallyWorld. I used to buy it for plinking and general practice until I did the math and found that I could get a far higher quality factory ammo for not all that much more if I bought it right.

    Never had any problems with WWB ammo, it may be that the failure rate spoken of is because it is problably the most widely used for practice ?

    Have probably shot 4-5thou of 9mm with several pistols;
    maybe 8 FTEx and only one FTFire (Primer was hit by the striker).But no squibs.
    The FTEx were sometimes at end of a session when I may have limp wristed.

    Thousands of rounds of WWB 40S&W with only one failure to fire. Waited a minute, rechambered that round and it fired just fine.

    WWB is cheap, and I've not had any problems with it. I use S&B these days because it is (IMHO) just as good and a bit less.

    I agree I use S&B for 9mm and .30carbine

    I had two primer issues yesterday, which locked up sig p226 mk25. I had to give the top of the chamber a few taps to get it unlocked. I think that I just got a bad box. I usually don't have issues with this ammo.

    No problems for me using .45, .40 and 38 special +p. Mostly wwb or Remington ball ammo.

    I've had great luck shooting WWB by the hundreds, however now that I reload, I find them to be more accurate.

    I agree with QK on this one. Of all the value ammo I have ever shot, WWB is the worst. I will take wolf steel cased any day over that.

    I had a SIG 40 cal that would chamber and fire anything reliably. The only problems I ever had with that gun was with WWB. Same in a Steyr, and Kahr I had. Though to be fair, the KAHR didnt chamber well on any ammo I tried.

    I mentioned the results to the gun store where I bought all 3 weapons, and they indicated that they had had plenty of complaints on the WWB.

    If others love it, and it works for them, its no skin off my nose. But its my least favorite cheap ammo out there. I wasnt kidding about wolf running better in my guns that the win.
