    Theoretically I could save the blazer brass too, right?

    All I've ever used is the WWB, and have never had a problem.

    I shoot predominantly Blazer, but WWB is second. The UMC just seems so dirty, even compared to the other two.

    ive bought WWB almost exclusively for my 9mm (its all walmart has), but i recently finished up a case of fiocchi 9mm that was really good shit.

    cant go wrong with any of them

    I run WWB.

    I've seen enough guns run like shit with UMC at matches that I pretty much cross that one of the list... especially considering it is typically more expensive than WWB or Blazer.

    Fan of WWB, shot thousands so far without a single problem. Walmart has it cheap and I'm always cleaning out whatever I can.

    WWB seems to be the most available around here, love it.

    I use to shoot only WWB because that was the cheapest and Walmart always had that in stock, it was dirty as hell but worked fine. Now all my local one has had in the last few months is Blazer Brass .40 S&W which seems to be cleaner.

    I've shot tons of each and have never had a problem. In my experience, Blazer seems to run the cleanest so it's my favorite of the three.

    To answer the question, I shoot whatever I come across as long as it's market price.

    I've run Wolf, Blazer Al, Blazer Brass & WWB through my 19. 100% function with all.

    Personally I will not touch UMC, I have gotten too much brass that was messed up from them to trust them. Granted I was using a rimmed caliber and the rim was the messed up part and my revolver cylinder would not close because of the demented brass, so the 9mm might be fine.

    I have shot plenty of WWB and it always goes bang, I've shot a few boxes of Blazer Brass and have no complaints there either.

    I've never had an issue w/ WWB or UMC. Between myself and a couple friends we've shot thousands of rounds of UMC w/out issue.

    Yeah well I wanted Blazer but all they had at the moment was UMC. I never had a problem with UMC either but I just wanted to know if I had the option.
