With my pt111 g2 mill pro I fired 3 normal mags and one 15rd mecgar mag using 115gr steel cased winchester. I had 1 fte and 3 ftf's with this ammo. It also jammed up my 15rd mecgar mag (smacking it on the back fixed that). Normally my pt111 g2 runs flawlessly. I ran 3 mags through my shield with no problems.

I ran 100 rds. of that ammo through my G2 when I first got it w/o any issues, for what it's worth. Since then, I've stayed with brass case ammo just because I wasn't that comfy with the idea of steel case stuff.

I have a partial box of the Winchester Steel Case that I shot in my SAR B6c.

It worked flawlessly until the gun went dry around 180 rounds.

Then it became "sticky" and did not want to feed.

A tiny squirt of CLP and things smoothed out.

I am not ready to say that it was all the ammo's fault as this was a brand new gun and it is tight.

I will eventually shoot the rest of the box I have but I will likely only buy it again if it is way cheaper than the others. As of now, it is not much if any cheaper.

At this point I've had enough issues and read about enough problems with Winchester ammo that I won't waste my money on it. In 9mm I have had the most luck with Blazer Brass, Remington UMC and Mag Tech FMJ, even in 115 gr.

Normal winchester runs fine. I've run that, IMI (smelly stuff), aguila with no problems. It might not hurt to clean and lube the pistol and try again. I just got 1k rds of remington umc 115gr stuff for about 15.7 cents a round.

Back in the early 2000’s all I ever shot was Aguila in 9 mm. Used to order it directly from them by the case and have it shipped to my work. Bet I bought 5 cases of it and never had a problem. Don’t recall it being smelly, maybe just the new stuff is.

I've used them for years, and it does have an odd smell, but work fine for me.

I recently bought a G2C and I ran a bunch of ammo thru it to see what it liked or didnt.... everything I ran thru it, it ate with NO issues. But the Winchester Forged caused problems. I had at least 4 FTE (out of 50) and one of them jammed the slide badly... I couldnt even move the slide enough to field strip it... but I did eventually get it open. I'm all for Made In The USA but I'm not buying that ammo again. Also, its got a coating of gray dust or something that dirties everything. Not worth it.

9mm brass ammo is cheap enough to never use any of the steel case stuff.

It's tough on you extractor also. I would avoid it, unless it's all you can find.

I have around 500 rounds of that Forge ammo, and it runs good in my Hi Point 9mm carbine.

My Ruger P85 feeds anything, ditto my P90 .45ACP. Steel, aluminum, brass, no matter. My Kel Tec hiccups on steel now and then, but makes for good tap/rack/bang practice. :D I use none of this garbage for carry.

I've shot steel case in all my 9's (2 tauri, hi point 995, and walther p.38 ) and never had a malfunction. I've shot tula, wolf, and brown bear. I've never used the Winchester stuff simply because their price point doesn't make it any better to buy that over brass. Other than being dirty and requiring more cleaning, I can't tell that steel is any worse on the gun than anything else.
