My G30 gets ultra dirty after just a few rounds

    After coming home from firing 159 rounds through my glock 27 today, I noticed that it wasn't all that dirty when I cleaned it.

    Now my glock 30 is a mess when I bring it home. I usually shoot about 100 rounds when I go to the range with it and I have so much carbon I'm pulling out. I'm guessing its because I use Winchester white box and Remington fmj. The 40 cal selection at Wally World was low and they only had federal flat nosed fmj. I'm guessing Winchester and Remington are dirty?

    It's certainly the ammo.

    I find that Federal Champion or American Eagle are slightly cleaner,I will not spend money on anything that bears the winchester name,most certainly WWB. SJ 40

    I thought that the two biggest names in firearms would have good clean ammo. Instead federal, which I have always regarded as second tear, good, but second tear, ends up being cleaner. Then again, the jury is still out of my misfire with federal today.

    I've always found the "practice" ammo to be a little sootier than the top-shelf stuff (premium SD ammo). Remington/UMC is probably the worst offender with Federal AE being the best of the breed (IME).

    Just the same, it can always be cleaned up.

    I'd be glad that you're not having any failures of any kind and it's accurate enough for you.

    Dirty ammo = dirty gun.

    The Winchester name is licensed for many products,what firearms are produced are being manufactured by F N.
    I do not know what Olin, the parent co. that owns the winchester name is doing with their ammunition because that is supposedly all they actually produce under the name winchester.
    Their quality control has steadily over the last ten years has slipped to the point I will not purchase anything from them any more.
    Consider your self lucky that you just have a dirty gun, not worse.

    Some Wal Mart's have this on their shelfs at times and is my practice ammunition of choice if I'm not shooting my own reloads.

    Having been burned by winchesters quality control or lack their of with reloading components six years ago I just say no to winchester. SJ 40

    Same here--when I shoot cheap-o practice ammo, my G30SF usually looks like I've just dunked the front end in a bucket of ashes. Even with some of ammo I load myself (AA #5 comes to mind...) it'll get that way, too. Not too much soot/carbon when shooting defensive/carry/duty commercial rounds, and really good results from Unique powder when loading my own.

    I'll usually do a really good cleaning on the guns when shooting dirty stuff when I get back from the range, too.

    I have always found that WWB and UMC to be very dirty. I usually stick to Federal AE now.

    .40 and .45 will shoot dirty compared to 9mm with most equivalent cheapo brands.

    I purchase those RemOil wipes you can get at walmart. When I am done and before I pack up I simply wipe the frame and it all comes off. With Glock its pretty easy to clean and no issue while the gun is still warm. With some nickle finish guns you may be using some elbow grease to clean.

    It is also why I have range cloths and I wash my hands, face and change before leaving the range. I have seen videos and while you may not feel or see it the gunk is getting all over your body especially in an indoor range where they are trying to move air around. When i get home the cloth go right into the wash.

    That's normal and nothing to be worried about. Dirty on G30 is very sexy IMO.

    I noticed this too, then I went to a GSSF competition, it was there I noticed every G30 had a dirty nose and figured it came with the territory.

    45 just seems to be a dirtier caliber, in general. Every 45 I shoot, regardless of ammo, gets a lot of muzzle soot very quickly (< 50 rounds). My 9s and 40s never come close, even when shooting hundreds of rounds.

    Perhaps it's because of the lower pressure and slower bullet? The crap just doesn't expel as far as with other calibers. Just a thought.
