    So I recently bought a 100 round box of (WWB) 9mm 115gr, and decided I wanted to count the ammo because I am bored. So I counted and to my surprise there was 101 rounds in it, (SCORE :tongueout:). Thanks winchester for 1 free round.

    I guess when you buy winchester, they don't lie when they stamp WIN on the back of those rounds.

    I went to load a hundred rounds of .22 Hornet the other night with 40 grain Hornady V-Maxes....When I got through, there were 2 bullets left over.

    I don't believe I have ever done that with jacketed bullets before...However, those little suckers were nearly 20 bucks. There should have been a lot more than 2 extra, when you compare that to the price of the first box I bought a few years ago.

    Yeah, I've seen that happen a few times. It's more common than you think, and that's not a bad thing. I've been shortchanged once or twice (99 instead of 100), but if the count is wrong, it's almost always slightly high.

    I pack the rounds to the range in a plastic case that holds them individually, so I sort of end up counting by default.

    I've been shorted also when buying ammo. I bought a box of Blazer .45 ACP and one of the rounds had a bullet which was depressed into the case very significantly (unusable).

    Dude that is a bonus if you had said Remington... I would have been like "Well it will even out... soon"

    But I've fired thousands of rounds of WWB 9mm FMJ/JHP and .40cal FMJ/JHP always 100% of my experience with them has been... perfection.

    I'm now counting like 400 rounds thanks guys! Aw man I'm done I edited... I only got 100 in each box... so I'm calling Winchester!! lol no
