I have a MP 40 that I have put about 400 rounds through it. I have been using the 165 WWB with no problems, but some questions about accuracy. Again this is a new pistol and I am a new shooter so some of the problem is with me. On Saturday I shoot a box of 50 WWB 180 that a co-worker got for me and seemed to have alot more accuracy and consistancy. Any body have some comments or did I just have a good day.

I also found this out when I started shooting my M&P. I started off shooting 180 WWB. Then WWB started to switch to the 165, thats when my accuracy went down. But the more I practiced with the 165 WWB the accurate I got. I believe that 180 grain compansates for alot more than the 165 does when it comes to hand grip and shooter accuracy. But when I shoot my 165 grain defense ammo Im dead on point of aim. So all I can say is try different target ammo such as Blazer, American, and magtech. So keep shooting, shooting, shooting

Bullet weight and make of ammo is a matter of prefernce, both you and your firearms. Some firearms prefer heavy bullets and some prefer light. Try different ammo from different major manufatures shooting from a rest and find out which your gun prefers. Unless you are a very good shot, you probbably wont be able to tell the difference in the ammo shooting off hand.

Tried a box of Remington UMC 180 FMJ and I think I will stay with the WWB in the 165 or 180. My wall-mart in town carries the WWB 165 gr box of one hundered for around 16-17 dollars and I can not beat the price. The UMC ammo seemed a little more inconsistant and I did have one not fire even with a good pin strike. (First time this has happened with the MP)

I will make a blanket statement here by adding one ammo manufacturer which hasn't been rated: American Ammunition (AMERC headstamp). There have been many reports of this ammo, and the brass itself being substandard. Please avoid it at all costs. http://www.ar15.com/content/page.html?id=210

dont confuse Amerc or American with Federals American Eagle product.

American Eagle line by Federal is good stuff
Exactly, two completely different things at opposite ends of the quality spectrum!

While I haven't shot the UMC value box I have shot about 5 of the WWB and 2 boxes of wolf. I didn't like the wolf. To me it seemed to cause more of the 40 snap recoil whereas the WWB I could shoot all day and hit.



I've heard the UMC ammo is really dirty so i didn't want to find out how dirty it was.
