WWB quality certainly varies.
Either that or I'm just lucky. I don't even have ejections issues with the stuff. I get the occasional (very rare) stovepipe with federal or S&B, but never with Winchester.
THAT is the WWB quality that I have come to know in the past 30 years.
I would offer this thread by Adk Glkr as to WWB quality control or lack their of.
Ahhhh, WWB. The iceburg lettuce of the ammo world.
To the OP - did you try to fire them a second time? If you did and they went off, they were likely high primers from the factory. If they didn't, the primers might have just been duds.
Best advice I can give you is to try something else and eliminate the gun as a possibility.
My money would be on inert primers,the reason I no longer use them. SJ 40
Double Tap SJ 40
Is WW ammo still made in IL?
I just bout some ammo cans, one for 40 and 45, is it okay to mix ammo? Its all mostly Federal and WWB.
I'd keep them separate.
Absolutely!...might be a highly contagious virus infection
My question is about using target rounds for personal protection.
I was told this is unwise, as the target rounds would go right through a person and possibly hit another person, and that "personal protection rounds" would not necessarily go through a person.
Looking for comments
Define "target rounds"
For personal protection the most important thing is to use a round that you know functions reliably in your gun, with you shooting it. That matters more than anything else ever will. If FMJ (full metal jacket) is all you can afford to shoot enough of to be confident in function, use it for personal protection.
However, in a sufficiently powerful cartridge (I would say .38spl/9x19 or above) a JHP (jacketed hollow point) or SWC (semi wad cutter, revolver round here) is a better choice than a FMJ.
Ideally for any cartridge a Glock sold in the United States is chambered for, a quality JHP that you have tested in your gun is the best choice.
Personally I prefer Speer Gold Dot or Federal HST for that.
"Target" rounds are a bit difficult to define. One person's target ammo is for NRA bullseye shooting, and another person's targets may be bowling pins at 8 meters.
Just be clear, I want to use 1 ammo can for nothing but 40 FMJ rounds but I have diffrent brands.
WWB in .45 GAP - the only squib I've ever experienced.
But to be fair, Olin (Winchester) customer service paid for a new barrel for my G38 and reimbursed me for the 2 boxes of shells I returned to them from the batch that had the squib.
Is Winchester still in Illinois?
