Has anyone experienced problems using Wally World white box? I was having a problem with one of my 9mm's so did my own little "uncontrolled" test using: 1. Wally World White Box. 2. American Eagle. (red box) 3 UMC (yellow box). I had numerous problems with the WW ammo, zero with the other two brands. Also while not a factor, the WW seems to "smoke" more when fired. I hate to think the WW stuff isn't quality controlled to the extent as to be reliable, because I love the price. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks PX :wtf:

Almost everyone uses the White box ammo... usually with very good results.
It's possible that you just got stuck with a substandard production run... I wouldn't give up on it just yet, but give it another try.
Once the store runs out of that particular lot, of course!

I've never had any problems with the cheap winchester ammo from Wally World. It does seem to be pretty dirty, but that doesn't really bother me.

walmart ammo

I have bought a box of the 9mm 100 count ammo from Wal-Mart,

I had a couple problems with one of my P-11s not pulling out the empty cases twice.

I have noticed that these bullets are also longer than a normal 9mm round, I don't think that is what caused my problem though, I think that maybe my gun just got dirty or something because there was no rip where the extracter pulled on the rim.

I just don't like the way this stuff is made, I do not know what they use to coat the bullet with, it is a light gold color but don't look like brass.

It IS brass... almost all the White Box ammo is brass-jacketed except the .45 ACP..

The Winchester value ammo shoots dirty, but a good cleaning takes care of that. It's good enough for practice, but I wouldn't hoard it for any EOTW preparedness.
