Pics would be helpful.

Not seen any like that, like you would expect better from Olin.

Oh yeah! They ALL do stuff like this. We used to keep a collection at the Academy where I worked of factory defective ammo just to demonstrate why we told officers to visually check every round they loaded into their mags or speedloaders as well as all shotshells. My guess is that the reason you happebed to find WW stuff is that Mr. WalMart has made the whitebox stuff so popular. Some years back you would probably have found CCI Blazer. I have seen pretty near everything you can omagine from all the big companies, including a shipment of .380 packed and invoiced as 9mm, bullets loaded backwards, no primers, primers seated backwards, split cases, no powder, etc.

I've had good experiences with the 9mm Winchester white box ammo. I've had one casing split while being fired, but it ejected just fine.BTW: The white box ammo I got a few months ago at Wal-mart was jacketed with what looks like brass. Today I just got another 200 rounds of white box from Wally's World and its copper jacketed.

I use a lot of 9mm Win white box in my AR about 1-2 cases a month. So far I have not had a problem with any that I've used. However I look at every round before they are loaded in my mags. I'm sure there are duds with every manufacturer.
