    I hope they get better than the average *Winchester White Box* that I have come across.

    I wouldn’t trust that crap in any semi auto of mine if it were a matter of life/death. Rifle or pistol.

    There goes another ammo price hike and shortage. I sure am glad I learned to load my own and got stocked up on components because another dry spell is in the making.

    Seems the 62 gr Green tip is the ” Ammo du Jour ” … and none of the Clubs I shoot at allows them …

    Sooo… The military discovered 55gr Ball wasn’t doing the trick … Wish WE had told them THAT waaaay back when …

    ( Now they’re eyeballing the 6.5 … Hmmm didn’t we use to use a .270 deer round with GREAT success ??? )
