Winchester USA Forged

So, yesterday I was going to go shoot at the local range and I stopped at Walmart to pick up some 9mm ammo. I found a box of 150 rounds of Winchester USA 9mm 115gr and decided on it since it was less that $30.00. Big mistake. What I failed to realized once I got back out to my truck, was that this was steel cased ammo from Winchester, USA Forged. Well, I figured what the heck I will try it as there is no refunds on ammo. I first tried it in my Ruger American Pistol and it did ok at first. I did have about three round not want to chamber completely and I could not get my slide to retract to clear it. I had to hit the back of the slide with my hand to get it to chamber. I also tried in my LC9S and had a couple of rounds not chamber either. I did manage to shoot it al up, but never again will i make that mistake of using that ammo. I cleaned my guns earlier and that was the dirtiest ammo I believe I have ever shot. My guns were filthy from that stuff. I DO NOT recommend this ammo.

Sounds like some Wolf steel case .45ACP I bought for a Glock 21 several years ago. Similar scenario; On sale, etc...
I took the pistol to the range to see about replacing the slide release with an extended one and the gunsmith there took one sniff and said, "You've been shooting Wolf in this, haven't you?" Nasty stuff.

When I had my glock 19 I ran a box of that through it with no issues. But it's a glock and ate everything I fed it.
