Yeah , from shotgun shells to white box.... Winchester ammunition has gone down hill in the last 10 years bad .

It's all a pig in a poke, regardless of manufacturer.

More ammo, made by increasingly more robotic machinery and less human eyes, and things slip through.

WWB, bargain ammo turned out in huge quantities, even more chances of imperfections slipping thru the cracks. Recently, some of us reported full boxes of new WWB ammo with a mixture of different headstamps.o_O

At the range a few years ago a guy had a box of .45 ACP WW 100 pack with several rounds with the bullet shoulder well below the rim of the case. I'v got to ask though....Why do you keep buying Winchester White box?

Going through a couple K of PMC 9mm, and a bunch of Blazer Brass 9mm, .40, .45 I don't recall ONE bad round?
