Default Sellier & Bellot ammo

A few weeks ago I sent my S&W Sigma 9mm back to them to fix the trigger problem. Problem was I had no idea when it would fire or what it would hit. I got it back and went to the range and I thought I was using a different gun, I was really pleased. So, a few days later I went again, the trigger was nice & smooth but I couldn't hit the broad side of a barn. I was using "Sellier & Bellot", 9mm Luger 7,5 g, 115 grains ammo, so I thought I would try some Winchester 0mm Luger 115 gr FMJ and at 25 Feet they were all in the black.

I just inventoried my ammo and besides the 9mm I also have some of their .380. Cost wise I've got over &100 worth of useless ammo in my opinion.

What do you guys think I should do? Being new to handguns I have no idea what to do. Help.

Jack

Use it up, or sell it.

I can piss away $100 bucks of ammo in a single range trip?

Do draw drills, double tap drills and the cartridge consuming Mozambique drill.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

S and B ammo sucka da ballz. I had some of the 9mm and shooting it was like throwing a handful of corn through a fence, no telling where it was going. Worst 9mm I have ever fired.

I guess I'm learning the ropes when it comes to unwritten rules of handgun ammo. I did however send an email to their HQ in CZ and they responded and asked for my phone # so their local rep can get in touch with me.
I also talked to the gun shop where I bought it and they said "..nothing we can do about it."
In my opinion this is why manufacturers get a bad name, it's because the retailers don't stand behind the products they sell. I'll bet $ that L&B does not want negative publicity.
I'll let you know what happens.

I understand that, it costs me about the same because I always manage to stumble onto some little thing I need (no I don't)
