    Separate copper remover necessary for JHPs? (WWB 147gr JHP)

    This may be a dumb question, but do Winchester white box JHP's deposit copper at all? Because I'm trying to decide if it's necessary to buy a separate copper remover solution on top of the regular powder fouling cleaners like Hoppe's 9? I'm going to be specifically using the WWB 147gr JHP's (USA9JHP2).

    Indirectly, I'm basically asking if JHP's in general deposit copper.

    Here's a link to the product if you guys don't know what it is:

    I've never had an issue with copper deposits. Maybe if I ran 1000s of bullets thru the barrel in short order, but Hoppes and recently Gunzilla seems to keep things clean enough.

    Are you using the JHP for practice or defense, or both?

    If practice only, I'd recommend the Winchester Ranger 147gr FMJ at SGAmmo which has a better price point at the same grain weight. They do have some different flavors of 147gr HP if you're particular to those, like the Federal 147gr JHP Hi-Shok.

    I've not experienced any copper leavings with 100's of rounds of Win Ranger 147gr T-series HP or thousand or so rounds of 147gr FMJ that the ol' #9 didn't clean up.
