    Before I went to the range I stopped by KT headquarters to get a free feed ramp polish and showed them the ammo I purchased for the range, Sellier & Bellot. They said they do not recommend it as it is European and may have feed issues. They recommended I pick up some Winchester clean or Winchester white box. I did swap out what I had for what they suggested.

    I am curious though...

    Has anyone had issues w/ S&B ammo to validate their warning?
    Do the majority of shooters here plink at the range w/ Winchester clean/white box in there P3AT?
    What would be better/more accurate range ammo that would cost in the $15-$20 for 50 round range?

    Thanks again for all the info from you more experienced individuals. It truly is appreciated.

    I searched around and WWB appears to be a solid choice since 1) it's relatively inexpensive and 2) you can pick it up at most local stores. My Wal-Mart happens to stock the 50 and 100ct. boxes. FWIW I paid $31.xx for the 100ct. .380 the other day.

    Plenty use S&B.  I have shot some myself.  Just about any BRASS-CASED ammo is usually fine although individual guns can sometimes be picky.

    Win White Box and Rem UMC are popular and usually available at Walmart, etc, but there are plenty of options.

    I've used WWB, American eagle, Fedral, Remington, and my own reloads. Gun seems to do fine with all.
