I bought a few of boxes of Winchester FMJ 9mm and .40 ammo today and when I opened the boxes I was very surprised to see that the bullets were the same brass color as the case.

Is the copper brass washed? Will this effect accuracy at all, I assume its safe to use in the picky Glock barrel, right?

I've used the Winchester "white box" 100 pack that I've been buying at Walmart for $10.96 exclusively in my SA XD9 without a hiccup. For practice ammo I have yet to find a better deal anywhere. YMMV

I guess I should have mentioned that. The 9mm rounds were in the so called "100 round White Box". But the .40's weren't, they were packaged in the regular white box 50rounds per box. I sure wish they were brass washed color and why they did it.

It's not washed, they have a copper alloy (Brass) jacket as seen in their WinClean ammo. Pull one and you'll see. Same thing minus the enclosed base.


Why?
Because sheets of brass are cheaper than sheets of copper.

If you don't like it, stick to 50 round boxes of 9mm and 180 gr. in .40.

It doesnt bother me. I am mostly worried about if there would be a change in performance.
