    I had some free time today so I got to do some shooting. Picked up some Winchester white box .45 from Wally World and thought I would give it a try. I have been using the Remington but wwb was $8.00 cheaper for the same 100 count box. I only picked up 1 box because I wanted to make sure I had no problems but will be going back for a few more.

    Here is the results...

    close...it was 2 magazines. I (for some strange reason) never fully load my magazines. The Ruger holds 8 but I always load with 6. So that was 2 mags and 12 shots :)

    Not bad Rooster, see why you chose the handle that you did. Why only 6 rounds, hurt your poor little fingers?

    The center of your target is missing?
    Nice shooting!

    White box aint too bad, if you dont mind dirty. That's about all I shoot other than my hollow points.

    "It wasn't always like that. I shot him in it."

    "The lower lip? What was you aimin' at?"

    "His upper lip."

    Nice job Rooster! Thanks for sharing.

    If you are inclined to reloading, WWB is waaay better brass than the UMC, in my opinion. Another common range ammo I see is PMC, and I also like their brass as well.

    lol, no I just never felt comfortable loading the magazines fully. For example, my PX4 SC holds 13 but I always load 10 only. This way, when I have a 100 rd box, I load the 5 mags I have with 50 and I know I still have 50 in the box.

    Gotta start somewhere :D

    actually, I was surprised how much cleaner my pistol was after using wwb then the last time I used Remington.

    that's good to know, ty. Once I'm settled in to the new place, I may start reloading. Gotta see how the finances go first
