I bought a box of WWB. It was $20 a box/50 at Wallies and says "winClean" on it as well as "95 Gr. BEB". What is this stuff: Target or SD? The nose is sort of flat like a semi-wadcutter with no copper on it on the flat part. It shot just fine after I got the recoil spring pointed in the right direction.

It's just plinking/shooting ammo. Could carry it if you want for SD; there are plenty of people that carry an FMJ loading (or in this case, Trunculated Full Metal Jacket- TFMJ).

The difference between this FMJ and others is the enclosed base of the bullet, most other jacketed bullets the base is open; the hot gas from the burnt powder send some of this lead into the air.

i use these for target i get them at store called meijer in mi. pay 16.99 a box . bought a couple boxes at 12 .99 on clearance. i think they are an all around cleaner load to shoot. seems to be less powder crud when cleaning the gun .

Definite plinking ammo.

This is the only ammo that will misfire in my LCP. The Wincleans live up tho their reputation of inconsistent primers. I get about 10% light primer strikes on these. No other ammo has this issue in my LCP. (lead-less primers are for the birds!)

My LCP LOVES this load, go figure. I got 1.5" groups at 7 yards with it, outshot Cor-Bon and Golden Saber bullets. That flat me-plat and exposed lead core may be just the ticket for finicky LCP's that don't like JHP ammo, as it will penetrate pretty deeply and you MIGHT get a bit of expansion out of it also. I'd take it over ball ammo anytime if my gun liked it and won't feed anything else.

Yeah, I had to look it up, too. Maybe everyone else knew what a BEB bullet was, but I didn't. DesertPunisher425 alluded to it, but it's "Brass-Enclosed Base."

This ammo has also been problematic with some Glocks as well.
