    This came in my return pistol box today. Never seen this before, even though we have discussed on this forum previously.

    I believe I bought 8 or 9 NEW Hi Points last year?
    Maybe 12 or so used ones, I won't be buying that many HP's this year?

    Why not? :foilhat:
     
  6. I'm sorry, but I will continue to use Wolf/Tulsa. I've never had a problem with that ammo.

    Bwahaha...

    Just so you know, they include that with returns that they think the problem lies with the shooter limpwristing. It's actually a good sign that there was nothing seriously wrong with it.

    I dunno...

    My C9 has ALWAYS had problems with WWB ammunition...

    It digests everything else with alacrity and plume!

    :D

    Me too, but I cannot remember if I shot it in my HP yet? :confused:
    It was better in my Hi POWER than the PerFecta (by far)
    but I had a user induced malfunction that caused them all to be funky :blush:
    Fine Weapon, otherwise!

    Never had any issues with WWB in any flavor.......until the last box of 45acp I bought. 100 round value pack, several misfires in the box, bad primers.

    I haven't had issues with it either, but after reading about some of the issues people from here were having, I took a box and measured them and the COAL's were pretty varied. MAYBE it's because the .40 mags have that plastic spacer in front that allows the nose to rise on to the feed ramp better? I don't know and wouldn't even try to venture a guess beyond that.

    I bought a case of WWB 45 right as the panic hit for 35 cents a round. No issues, but they are almost gone. I guess I got a good batch.

    Just FYI guys...WWB in the 50 pack isn't the same as WWB in the bulk pack.;)

    Well thank you Captain Obvious, you saved us from ourselves.....


    The warning from Mom doesn't distinguish bulk or 50 pack, and I measured a bulk pack. I was bored....

    School's almost out, sports are almost done with, and he's going to have to putter around the house alone with the wife. Of course he's cranky.

    I have had "some" problems with WWB but only in 22mag. I still buy it if it's cheaper than other ammo, I am just aware that I may have problems. Used a lot of Tula in my SKS. Haven't used it in any other firearm and don't intend to.
