well judgin by this subforum seems like nobody else is shooting their hipoints :huh: :minigun: i put 50 through her monday and another 100 today of some WWB ammo (why is alot of people against this stuff now, and from what i heard hipoint advises against it "voids warranty") but anyways since monday was my first day back in the Pistol game after a 7-8 month break my grouping was low and about 6-8" under semi rapidfire at 8 yards.. got bored and did a feed ramp polish on my gun which i posted pictures of in the hipoint general discussion area.. but it still feeds perfect. didnt get pictures of my targets but it seems i finally got my rear sights adjusted. fast target aqcuistion between 2 targets with good grouping today. will try to squeeze off a few more rounds this week. one question tho... it may be my grip on the gun itself. and it was doing this before i disassembled gun. but mag is dropping out every once in a while.. alot after last round so i get no slide lock back since mag drops soon? just drops down an 1/8" while shooting and i can feel the difference and always slap it back in and continue firing without failures... so good practice i guess got to make sure i keep my grip away from the mag release....

It's too freaking cold, and snowy!

And the WWB, especially in the 100 round box, is a problem as it seems to be all over the place in regards to OAL, making it feed poorly in some guns.

Also, on the other site there is a LONG thread about it, a few guys have had squibs with WWB, IIRC one guy even blew up a gun that way...between Mom's statements and that sort of thing, I prefer to use something else, especially as other stuff is actually cheaper these days.

Drift, the bulk is a get what you pay for with WWB. You could get a good batch or a bad one. You could get some low velocity (causes squibs) or visual defects (dings on the casings). it's a crap shoot with them. If you are careful and alert, they could work for you well. Just don't rapid fire with them.

I am not aware that shooting WWB voids the warranty in Hi Point weapons..... can anybody verify this?

Hell, I didnt think shooting reloads even will void the warranty.

I don't know about the warranty issue but I doubt it. The only place I've seen the hand-wringing :scared: is on the other forum. Then there's the fact that of the thousands and thousands of shooters in the world there's only a few really that hang out on these two forums and I'm sure at least a fair amount of them shoot WWB without issues. And my guess is Winchester put's at least 100k +- out the door each week. I'm not convinced that the one KB was the bullets fault. And the HP took the case rupture in stride. Could injuries have happened...sure. I've heard of ppl slipping on the porch steps and killing themselves ...are we gonna ban porch steps? :thinkin: Doo-doo occurs!
WWB (100pk) and Blazer alum. plus some reloads is all I've put though my c9 (just over 250 now). Feeds well, no problems with any store bought stuff. One squib with a reload. No big thing. Tapped the bullet out, ran a dry brass through and kept on shootin. I'm all for learning from the experiences of others but let's be realistic. Gotta look at the bigger picture.

i don't have the gun yet or any of the reloading equipment yet but getting some ammo to get ready. thinking of the lee hand press. its cheap and I can put the stuff away easy and not have it left out. don't have lot of room and a 7yr old and a 3m so keeping stuff put away is a plus.
