I would look into bvac. Its about as cheap as your going to find and very good quality ammo.Nothing wrong with the white box stuff though. I have shot a lot of it through my model 29 and never had a misfire and is no more dirty than any other ammo as far as I can tell.

Is it the greatest? No. It is however, more than satisfactory for typical range use.

No. Assuming your using the correct caliber for your particular gun.

Not really.
The whole "dirty ammo" thing is a pet peave of mine. Who cares, unless it's like black powder fouling? Clean your gun properly after each use and you need never worry about it.
You want dirty ammo? Come shoot some of my cast bullet reloads running Bullseye or Unique. I'd bet WWB or Fiocchi or whatever people currently see as "dirty ammo" will seem positively sparkling in comparison. And you know what? It's really not that big of a deal to clean up in spite of all the grunge.

Winchester's "generic" ammo. Excellent for practice. Remingtron makes "UMC" and Federal makes a generic as well. It's all good.

winchester whitebox is what i use in my lcp for self defense. its also a great source of reloadable 7.62x54r it comes as 180grain softpoint which is good for hunting.

ive used their 45acp fmj from time to time when ive had gift certificates or rewards credits from store purchases. it shoots cleaner than hornady stuff ive tried

It's ok for target practice. I find it "dirtier" than tula. I like the brass though.

Well you have been very lucky. I have never bought one box that did not have multiple FTF's per box from 380, 9mm and 45acp. Its extremely dirty and crap ammo, for me. I will stick to WWB or Federal for range use. It only costs a little bit more and keeps me from getting headaches. To each his own, right, thats why they have allot of different brands.
