I hear negatives about the WWB but have never experienced FTF or FTE,Why is one better over the other ? I recently added 1,000 round of each. T Y

I've shot a lot of WWB in several different calibers and never had a problem with it.

I don't recall ever having any issues with Winchester White Box in 9mm. The only reason I switched to Federal was because I was saving ~$4 per 100 Rounds (Federal Value packs at Walmart)

The only difference that I've noticed between them is that WWB seems to be dirtier than Federal Champion.

Same here, no issues with either for me.

WWB and Federal perform right about the same but as mentioned above, WWB is incredibly dirty. It's not difficult to clean up after by any means. A swab with solvent wipes it right off.

The only 9mm I've had problems with were Remington 50ct boxes but it was a quality control issue. I had a few boxes with rounds that had the bullet pushed down into the case.

Aren't WWB the stuff people are having problems with due to primer holes not being on some?

Prices being equal, I prefer WWB, because you get the occasional bonus round or two. I haven't had any problems with any ammo that I've used, be it Federal, WWB, Magtech, friends' reloads, etc.

I also noticed ( Setback ) from chambering a round of the Remingtons,but thought the setback was more noticebable on the Kel-Tec than my Glock,In any event the rounds still went bang.

I've had good luck so far with WWB and Federal, not so much with the Remington UMC. Several FTE per box with the UMC
