Default handgun ammo:federal champion or WWB

What would buy?
I am going to buy .40 and .45, the federal champion is on sale, while WWB is just cheap. I plan on using this at the range and to stock up. Mostly to stock up. I dont have alot of money to buy boat loads, but I want to buy it a box at a time, if i have some spare cash.

Currently I have no space to reload!

Thanks.

Whatever is cheapest. I've used all 3 and they are fine. WWB is dirtier, but guns are supposed to get dirty.

If you plan on saving your brass to reload, the .45 federal probably uses small pistol primers.

Fed red boxes are the cheapest at Walmart. I have hsot thousands of them without problems. I avoid the PMC value packs of 250.

Walmart sells PMC now? I do remember seeing UMC 250 packs, but not PMC.

Either of those 2 will be fine. I would get what is cheaper and that is usually Federal.

Even though I reload, I like to keep a stock of factory ammo, so when ever I get a chance, I'll buy a $100 to $200 worth of ammo from WalMart.

I use to use the Blazer Brass before they replaced it with the Federal red boxes. I avoid the UMC stuff if I can.

You can't go wrong with the Federals and 2 boxes of their 50 rds are usually less expensive then one 100rds WWB.
