Default What is the best ammo to buy for the Hi point .40 S&W

Its probably been answered before but I can't seem to find the post. I just shot my gun and used the Winchester white box and experienced some jamming after about the third or fourth shot and had seen people say don't use winchester white box, OK to late I all ready did but still haven't seen a simple answer whats the best grain and make for the hi point 40 S&W? and is there one. I want to know, because if there is a better ammo that is made that will keep the series of jamming issues from happening then I want to purchase that ammo.

Not saying that it will help if you have problems, but to rule out the ammo I would try at least a couple types. I shoot Federal Champion from walmart, 14.47 a box, and blazer brass, 14.97 a box at a LGS here. I shoot Remington UMC JHP's in my JCP with no problems at all.

I've had great results with winchester white box. I guess we'll see in the future.

I had two underpowered rounds in one box of WWB, that was enough for me to stay away from it.
