Default remington umc vs wwb

Do you all consider this a good deal? I've read mixed reviews about umc's dirtiness, squib loads, and failure to ejects . I have 100 bucks and I am having trouble deciding between wwb and umc. both deals are $20 a box of 50. i shoot wwb but I find it inferior to s&b, ppu, pmc, and armscor. wwb is on par with american eagle, fiocchi, and blazer. bottom line....would you choose umc over wwb?

Both are pretty much equal, UMC may be slightly dirtier.

I have not had good experiences with Remington ammo in a rifle...so I usually avoid there cartridge ammo. I have never had a single problem with WWB in my 40.

Remington UMC, Winchester White Box, Federal American Eagle. All about equal.

Personally, I've had slightly better results with Remington UMC, but I emphasize, slightly!

All three are second tier ammo. Great for low cost practice, but not for duty.

HOWEVER
:

They seem to use the same brass cases as the regular ammo, so the second tier stuff is a wonderful source of brass for re-loaders.

I bought the umc and I'm glad I did. I don't know why people call it dirty. The pack I bought was extremely clean. UMC over wwb in my book. More accurate and less recoil, and the brass all fell in the same location.

i'll shoot either one, because i'd buy it mainly for the brass to reload with anyways.
