    Winchester Service Grade vs White Box

    What's the difference between the service grade (brown box) and the good ol' white box? I've always liked the WWB 95gr flat nose 380 ammo, but now that Walmart has shït the bed, I'm looking to other sources. I've found this service grade stuff all over, but not the white box.

    Will service grade feed the same? Same exact dimensions? Same load/recoil? Mainly, same reliability?

    I believe that the service grade ammo will be a bit hotter than the WWB range ammo.

    WWB is intended to be "range" ammo (practice and plinking). The brown box has a little more "oomph". They should be pretty close to each other. Differences in feeding are pretty gun specific.

    From what I can tell, Walmart's declaration to end ammo sales was BS virtue-signaling. They're still selling it. Lots of it.

    My local walmart's ammo cabinet is "chock-full" of ammo of all types.

    Well, I guess I'll try some in the LCPs and see how it feeds! The gun does well with flat-nose ammo, so hopefully this will be the same. Thanks!

    Wasn't their announcement that they were ceasing sales of "assault rifle ammo?" Either way, they're full of it!
