Buy it all. If you wait to get your question answered on here then there won't be any left. I'd be surprised if that ammo lasts an hour.

I think they're about the same.....buy whichever brand you've had the best luck with or some of each...

WWB has always worked well for me. Accurate enough for my needs, which is range practice, and I have never noticed it being any dirtier than any other round. Only problem I ever had was a dud primer in a 100 round bulk pack, but considering the amount of 9mm WWB I have shot it's really not a concern of mine.

I agree though, if you put off buying any only to come on here and ask which is best, there's a good chance it's all gone now. I haven't seen anything at the Walmart near me except .32ACP and .38 Special.

Buy a box of each and see what shoots best in your gun. The price difference is really too small to worry about.
