I personally haven't. Yet. I actually have a box of 100 sitting about 10 feet from me. Others say it is very dirty ammo

I shot maybe 25 rounds yesterday and the casings were filthy with powder. I always thought it was known for being good reasonably cheap ball ammo

My LGS has stopped carrying it for now, various issues like bad cases and improperly seated primers. He said Win has closed a plant and the plant currently making WWB is having QC problems. Will probobly get sorted out eventually.

Gone through several hundred rounds of 9mm in my xdm compact. Seems lime good cheap ammo and I have friends that have used it for years.

I do prefer speer lawman personally though.

I have also not had any issues with winchester white box yet. Some of my spare carry magazines consist of 147grn WWB JHP's, but I inspected each round and measured them with a digital caliper.

I've probably shot at least 1K rounds in the last 6 months and haven't had a single problem. I do hear sometimes about bad batches of ammo from various manufacturers sometimes. Some people at work swear by BVAC but some guys I work with bought some all around the same time and are having a lot of problems with it.

It is very dirty ammo..Most of what I buy from them is perfectly fine...Oh except the time that the primer was missing from the cartridge and my ammo was littered with powder....I still buy because they are cheap and I inspect my ammo before I shoot it so no harm no foul.

In thousands upon thousands of rounds, I've never had a problem with WWB.
