I had a couple issues while shooting it today. a couple a ftf and a couple fte. the tulammo shot perfectly without issue. any others having trouble with this flatnosed ammo from walmart?

Not only has my Bersa handguns had problems with WWB, but I've read many reports whereas other Bersas have done the same. WWB just isn't a first choice ammo for Bersa.

well damn. my glock 17 shoots the heck out of it. I guess I might have to sell it and look for a more compatible/affordable brand. do you think its because its flat nosed ammo, and not round?

I think we misunderstood each other. I was talking about the WWB .380, not a 9mm. My BP shot the 9mm WWB very, very well.

I think it has something more to do with the flat nose, but I'm not really sure. If you want range ammo for your .380, there are plenty available, but my personal favorite is Federal.

BTW, did you mention somewhere that you're looking to sell your G17?

ya. I was referring to the WWB 380 as well. I just mentioned my glock had no issues with the 9mm Winchester WWB brand. but then again, glocks have no ammo issues that I know of. as for selling it? I dunno. mabey:confused:

The WWB 9mm is having no known issues but the flat nosed .380 has had some complaints. Oddly enough my little KelTec P3AT has never had a problem with it but who knows, if I ever get my BT .380 it may jam every time with it.l

Well I finally did get my BT .380 and oddly enough it's not having any problem with the flatnosed WWB either. My kel-tec likes it so much that while I use a JHP for carry my spare mag is loaded with WWB flat nose.

I had problems with it also. Every 3rd. shot was a jam. I had only about 150 rounds through my Bersa though. To agrivating for me to put up with. A gun that malfunctions will get you dead when you need it the most. I blackened up the sharp edges and corners with a magic marker to see where the problem was comming from. I knocked about .030 off a sharp corner and deburred the rest with some 320 grit emery cloth. I now have pease of mind that my Bersa will not get me killed. Functions flawlesly with every brand of ammo I have tried. I don't understand why Winshester produces that flat nosed bullet anyway. Oh well, yesterday I could'nt spell Engineer today I are one. LOL

Ok, I'm going back about 10 years ago, but I and "most" of the BT and FS 380 owners on the older of the Bersa forums had trouble with WWB ammo. There was alway someone who would chime in a state that they never had a problem round. It's seems that the newer the Bersa, the more WWB was prone to jam. Falling into the category of "fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me", I haven't fired one round of it since and have never used steel cased ammo. Best I can suggest is continue to try them and see if the gun adjust to them or buy a sling shot.
