Are you an ammo snob? I’ll shoot about any brand, dirty or clean shooting, as long as it cycles in my semi autos I’m fine with it, I also clean my guns after every trip to the range
Not a snob, no.Are you an ammo snob? I’ll shoot about any brand, dirty or clean shooting, as long as it cycles in my semi autos I’m fine with it...
I've had fairly hotly-loaded Sellier & Bellot 12ga get finicky with cycling, too. Nice stout loads, but never did function reliably well in a Remington 870P 12ga short bbl, nor a Remington 1100P 12ga for that matter. Have shot probably a dozen different cartridges in both of those shotguns, without issue ... except for the occasional S&B. Always figured it was a bit "soft" (variable) on the tolerances for the case sizing, such that some rounds would stick while others would function fine.The only thing im picky about is shotgun shells, no Winchester Universals. Ive never had a gun that extracted them well
Just an expression really... when I posted it I was thinking about when I really started getting into handguns, I had people tell me to “never shoot Winchester white box, it’s dirty” or Remington green and white box is weak etc, I’ve learned just for my target shooting, paper and steel etc, as long as it will go bang and is accurate in my semi auto or revolver I’m good. I do reload but with two kids and other things I have to get done there’s not a ton of timeSo is buying trusted, quality, ammo instead of the cheapest ammo available being an ammo snob? I've never attempted to buy the cheapest ammo I could find to shoot in guns that were not the cheapest I could buy...........YMMV
