Having shot about 20,000 rounds of their Personal Defense ammunition IMHO it is on par with their target ammunition.
With that, it is a great, economy line of SD ammo. It works, bottom line. It is consistent, accurate and it gives you the same POI as your training ammunition does.
You will get a lot of varying answers on this particular question. The above is just my opinion. I've done side by side tests (Nothing scientific) comparing the WWB 125 Gr. JHP to Speer, Ranger and Federal 125 Gr. .357 SIG ammunition. The WWB held its own amazingly. I found it to be more accurate than the Rangers and Speer. It expanded as well as the others and it penetrated as well as the others.
If I didn't have a 2,000 round investment of Rangers I would be carrying the WWB 115 Gr. JHP (9MM) and the WWB 230 Gr. JHP (.45 ACP). I carried WWB 125 Gr. JHP .357 SIG for the better part of 2 years.
I would go out and buy a box or two and try them out. Maybe even set up a non-scientific test yourself. Compare them to a couple different uber tacticool rounds.
Again, just my opinion and experiences.
