Winchester USA Handgun Ammo
Great For Practice
I use these for practice in my 9mm and they are an excellent value for the price. They group consistent and I have not have any type of feeding or jam related problems. I have never had a misfire due to a bad primer and would recommend these to anyone needing a good quality round.

Best Practice Ammo Available
This is the best range ammo I have found. Due to the recent ammo shortages we had to drop down to some of the other brands and nothing compares to the 'Winchester White Box'-
The UMC ammo is probably a close second, but the Winchester White Box ammo shoots cleaner and comes in a wider variety of bullet weights. The range of bullet weights is important when trying to train with ammo that is similar to what will be used on duty or in self-defense/carry situations.
Availability is still poor, hopefully production will continue to be increased.

I have an M&P 9 and 40, and have put at least 500 rounds through both with the white box Winchesters at the range. Never had a problem with the 40, and my wife had one issue with the 9mm, which may have been on her, and not the ammo. Yesterday we bought the M&P 357. Picked up two boxes of the 357 sig ammo and went to the range today. Out of one box, we had one not shoot at all, and out of the other we had two that wouldnt load properly. While 3 out of 100 isnt a huge percentage, I was a bit surprised considering how well everything else has been. Overall though, great ammo. I will continue to use it, unless we start seeing major issues...

Winchester white box hasn't let me down yet. The box I picked up had no jacket or core separations, no pierced primers, no split casing, no failure to fire, no underpowered loadings and all grouped well. At 5 yards from a sr1911 I had 1 1/2 inch groups with three shots fired, at 10 they opened to 2 inches, at 15 yards 3 inches. After 9 shots I figured that was a good enough shooting session and cleaned my .45. After firing those 9 shots left a 1/32 thick powdery film inside the gun which wasn't sticky and easily whipped away with a finger. For just plinking and maybe pistol hunting these arn't bad loads.
