Thumbs down Anyone experience problems w/PPU ammo?

I have a new XD-M 9mm. I have put a few hundred rounds through it, mostly WWB from Wal-Mart. I traded some 40 cal for 9mm PPU (Prvi Partizan) and on just about every round the casing failed to eject. I went back to the Winchester ammo and had no problems.

Any thoughts are appreciated.

PPU is more commonly known as "Monarch" which is Academy's in store brand here in Texas. Most of the time it cycles pretty good & WAY back when ammo was cheap this was very inexpensive option. The cases are not to bad however & seem to relaod okay.

PPU ammo

It's pretty common around here (Texas). It comes from Serbia and is sold in a blue box at Academy I believe.

OOOH monarch... no... I love monarch... functions exactly as wwb... I actually pulled out the calipers and pulled measurements between the monarch and wwb and they were identical as far as dimensions go...

I ran 4 boxes of Monarch at my last range trip.
2 9mm and 2 380auto.
No problems....
Did seem a tad off on accuracy compared to WWB and my Speer GD rounds.

I had the same problem

I just purchase a new Ruger SR9C and experienced the same exact problem. I shot 50 rounds of cheap federal...no problem ejecting....then I shot 50 rounds of winchester...no problem ejecting...then I shot the PPU and every three or four rounds would not eject. I did notice that it left a lot more residue in the gun than the other rounds. Maybe I only noticed it because it was yellow in color, but it seemed to leave a lot more...

I bought a few hundred rounds at a gun show a while back. Beyond 10 yards it shot far to the left.

PPU is privi partizan. It's good to go stuff. Most of the time on the hot side.
