I'm getting hit on the head!

I did a search for this and perhaps I didn't phrase it correctly since I got over 1100 results, none of which applied to what I wanted, so I'm going to ask it here. Whew!

Ok, I went to the range last week and fired my XD subbie 9 and my Beretta 92f using some factory reloads that I purchased from a recent gun show. When I say factory, I don't mean Winchester, Remington, etc., I mean the company at the gun show which reloads their own using Winchester brass and does so by the tens of thousands. Of course, I don't know if that makes it good. I bought 1K rounds.

When I shot the Beretta I had no problems. When I shot the XD, the brass was landing on my right arm, right shoulder and head (I'm lefty if that means anything). I don't recall that happening with the white box I bought from Wallyworld. Anyone have any ideas. Thanks.

Thanks for the response. I failed to ask the guys at the gun show how many grains and at what fps was the ammo, I won't do that next time.

I'm guessing the problem didn't occur in the Beretta because of the longer barrel, but I'm no gun expert. Anybody here know?

Actually you guessed right; when I went thru our academy they did teach us to shoot homie style. But, unless we went to one of the "high crime" stations, we couldn't utilize it. I didn't go there, so I had to hold it the "normal" way. lol.

I don't think it was limp wristing as I didn't have any problem with the 2 boxes of walmrt ammo I shot first or the 100's I had shot before, but I could be wrong.

If it continues after I finish this ammo and return to walmart's, I will contact SA re the ejector. Thanks for that input.

Again, thanks for the feedback.
I can do the long sleeve shirt, but wear a hat and mess my hair, no way! Actually, like I said earlier, after reading some of the responses, I'm guessing it's the "factory" reloads I bought. I will definitely ask the gun show guys the particulars of the ammo they are selling, plus, if I see the guy I bought this ammo from, I will do the same.

I appreciate all of the responses; that's why this is a great site, people are willing to help others. :)
