I'm contemplating purchasing 1000 rnds of Ga. Arms 9mm fmj for my Glock 17.
Has anyone ever had any problems and if I do will I run into warranty issues with Glock?
Any failures of any kind while using Ga. Arms?

Many, MANY thousands of rounds of Georgia Arms handgun ammo downrange over the years, zero problems. (I'm kind of partial to their .308 match ammo, too.)

No, you should have no Glock problems with the FMJ.

How clean is it compared to WWB?

I haven't really shot them B2B for comparison, but I doubt there's much difference. (I clean my handguns religiously after shooting them regardless of how much/what I put through them, so I'm probably not the best guy to answer that question.)

I can't speak for their 9mm but their 7.62x39 Ballistic Tip load is great stuff.

Very clean, good stuff.

1000's of rounds and no problems generally very clean.

WWB is filthy garbage compared to Georgia Arms.

I've shot at least 2000 rounds of 9mm, and 2000 rounds of their 223...

My guns like it! Not a single failure.

The only complaint I have with them is that they advertise one price on the website, but then charge you a higher price when you go down and buy it from the store. They were quasi-polite about it, and it wasn't that much more, but still... They need to update their website to reflect their actual prices.

I'd buy more 223 from them, because it is nearly as cheap as Wolf. I'm not so sure I would buy more 9mm, because it is more expensive than WWB.

And I can't tell that it is all THAT much cleaner than WWB.

ETA: Their Gold-Dots are the shiznit.

My frineds an I have around 10K rounds of their .223 through our AR's with no issues. I have no experience with their HG ammo, though. I'd be confident trying it.

I shot a few hundred rounds of their 10mm before I started reloading. I'm not near my notes, but I used a Glock 20 and as I recall had a positive opinion of the ammo and the service (I'm 100 miles or so away). I'd use them again.
