I've run over 30000 rounds of WWB, 25k blazer brass, 10k American eagle, and countless thousands of various other brands since 2008. This approximated amount is ONLY 9mm. I shoot ALOT. Between IDPA, 3 gun and plinking.

IN MY EXPERIENCE, WWB is dirty, inconsistent over a chrono, and not the best choice available.


You may choose to use it and feel its the bestest out there.

Sounds like reloading might be a good investment. OUCH!

I reload 9mm. I handloaded about 1000 rounds a couple years ago. I am still shooting them, because I shoot 9mm the least. When I loaded them I was using wheel weights that I got for free. So I only paid for powder and primers. That is actually less than $2.00 for a 50 round box. People say it is not worth it to reload 9mm. I dissagree.

My sig loves it. Its round ball so I wouldn't shoot metal targets with it, but I used it to "break in" my sig. It's not badly priced, not to dirty, cycles fine with no catching. I prefer sellier and bellow. Low cost, accurate, very clean, and just a consistent round for me. But, for the most part I shoot Remington at paper.
