    I shot 50rds last week in my CZ75B and it seemed like it had lower recoil than usual. The last time I shot the gun was in Feb with WWB. WWB is nowhere to be found and price has gone up to $22.

    Also in a dilemma. Either pick up a case of it this weekend or use that money towards a .22lr conversion kit for either of my pistols (CZ, Glock, 1911).

    I haven't only because I haven't seen it. I'm generally not scared to put any factory stuff through my glocks.

    I bought a bunch of it. Havent shot any of it yet, still working through the wwb. But I did notice the bullet is not seated as far in the casing as the wwb.

    I bought a case of it the other week... Seems to shoot fine in my glocks as far as I can tell. Granted, w/out shooting it back to back with something else, it is hard to compare/contrast....

    To .22? I want one so bad, but can't find it :wtc:

    I shoot the Federal pretty much exclusively. Winchester white box, with the shitty ass cardboard flaps, if I can't find anything else.

    You can't beat 50 rounds for $8.97!!

    i think he means that's 1750 rd of 9mm he won't be able to buy because he's spending the funds on the conversion.

    Shot probably 500rds or so of it through my Glock 19, no issue. I was shooting Magtec one day as well and didn't notice much of a difference.
    It is quality ammo.
     
  21. This is the first thing I thought of when I read the thread title.
