Ammunition Dirty/Smokey to Shoot and Use?
I have experience with enough brands of ammunition to see which brands shoot cleaner and dirtier. But, I thought it would be good to see what everyone else's experience would reveal.
I shoot 9mm and 380's and don't shoot .40, .45 or other calibers, so I don't know if clean/dirty rating crosses calibers or might depend on what caliber/model of ammo from a particular brand.
The Poll doesn't allow you to give star ratings so unless I do a separate poll for each ammo brand, I can't really rate them except YES/NO.
I have listed as many brands of NEW ammunition only. You may vote for any number of brands that you think is Dirty. By Dirty I mean two things: residue left in the gun and smoke/debris when firing.
Thanks for supporting polling.
The only ammo of those I have used that I would say is dirty is Blazer aluminum w/FP lead bullets. This was shooting it with a revolver which leaves more residue anyway because of the cylinder gap, but my hands were black when I finished the box. This doesn't happen with WWB or Remington UMC, or even my reloads using Bullseye. I suspect it is due to the lead bullets more than the powder or type of case.

It just seems that any steel ammo, or REALLY cheap ammo is dirtier.........I tend to pay a few bucks, and stay away from it.....
my experience also.I like the nickel plated casings for mine.hornady and silver bear are nickel plated.
I believe this to be an irrelevant question, because when you're finished shooting, you need to clean the gun(s) anyway.
In practice, I shoot my own lead-bullet reloads that use WW231. They're a little dirty. But it doesn't matter, because that dirt has no effect upon the guns I use.
Dirtyt bullets are not my favorite, the thing I am not a fan of is smokey rounds. I do shoot some competitive shooting and in the afternoon facing west and shooting 4 strings of 2, smoke and the sun coming over the berm can be a distraction I don't like. As far as the gun goes, I agree withthe previous poster, I too clean mine after each use. I like cleaning my guns and it doesn't take much time at all.
I know what I like and I load to that spec. I am happy and when I shoot happy is a good thing.
OK, so based upon the poll, I should stay away from Tula and Wolf. Got it.
