Default Walmart ammo preference

Ok, as the title says, I'm looking for your preference on Walmart's ammo offering. My Walmart only stocks 3 brands of .45, so that's all that's available in the poll. Please give me your thoughts on them.

I buy the Federal when they actually have it in stock and I need to replenish my brass supply. I find it to be cleaner then WWB and I love their brass for reloading. Remington is just too expensive. I can't see spending $4 more per box for the exact same thing.

I can't remember the last time I bought anything other than 22lr. If I bought ammo it would probably be the white box.

I buy both the WWB and Federal, of course that's only when they have some on the shelves.

Both work very well for me. I have no complaints.

If the price is the same I would pick Federal. Around here the prices seem to bounce up and down so you can't say one is higher than the other. As a rule though I like Federal ammo. All three listed companies make quality ammo, it's really just what you and your gun like best.

I like WWB, but have had good luck with Rem & Federal the few times I have bought it.
Id probably just go with the least expensive.
Then save your brass for reloading. If you don't reload, then recycle......send your brass to me

Wally world in okay for some things. I buy the WWB there. Knowing that Wally World makes deals with manufacturers (price shopping, SKU vs SKU, if they match, price match. but I still have yet to find a TV at Wally World that has the same SKU as Best Buy).
I will not buy a firearm or SD ammo from Wally World.

I buy Federal because they are always cheaper here compared to WWB. As a result, I never tried WWB so cannot give you any comparison other than cost (locally to me).

No gate, they are to send it to me. I thought that was common knowledge.

My Wally-world only stocks .45 in WWB, 9mm Federal is much cheaper there,as9mm WWB is about $3.00 more. I shoot whatever is the lower cost for now. Both are great to shoot.
