    As usual, Glock perfection. I shout about 100 rounds of Winchester White Box (NOT USA) 180 Bonded JHP, which is supposedly an FBI overrun. It can be found for less than $20 per box of 50 online shipped. It fed and functioned just perfectly, and was accurate as hell. One big ragged hole at 7 yards. Could not be happier with this ammo. There are several tests online where they show the expansion, this stuff makes a perfect mushroom. They say it is the same as the Winchester PDX_1 (I think that's how they write it) without the fancy box. Same bullet, same load, and I believe it. The "premium" stuff is over $1.00 per round. This is my new carry ammo. 180 JHP that expands reliably and functions properly is going to get the job done.

    I also brought an old favorite, my Ingliss (Canadian - Chinese contract) Browning Hi Power, with the tangent sights and holster/stock attachment.
    I had forgotten what it is like to shoot an all steel 5" barrel 9mm. Of course, I used Remington UMC value back ball ammo, out of respect for the age of the gun. But four full mags went down range without a stutter, and all the shots went into the same hole. It is just boring to shoot, no recoil, no drama, it just works.

    But it is a big heavy load to carry with a very inferior safety for cocked and locked. Just a fun shooter and collector, not a modern CCW. Still, it is amazing how much less it kicks than a G26! It shoots like a .22.

    Premium JHPs like Rangers can be had for a lot less than $1 per round. Not sure about PDX1 though since that only seems to come in "I have to have it NOW" 20 round boxes but I know Bonded Rangers are available in 50 round boxes.

    Yes, but they are EXPENSIVE. Like $45 for 50 rounds. Do some research, the white box Bonded 180 JHP are an absolute steal. Same premium round, white box.

    Are those WWB Bonded JHP's in brass casings? The PDX are nikel casings. I've had both and noticed some setback and some over crimped cases. I would buy them again but inspect every round.

    I read that in the past the WWB were also nickel, but yes these were brass. I did not notice any issues at all with them.
