Has anyone had any trouble with Winchester White Box ammo in a P95? I bought a 100 round box and had one round get jammed in the chamber trying to move into firing position and another empty casing that did not eject. Never had any issues with the P95 before.

TJ ... Welcome to the forum. While it's always possible that it could be ammo related, in an effort to isolate the problem I have two quick questions:
1. When the round failed to chamber properly, do you "slingshot" the slide or did you release it with the slide stop?
2. Did the empty case fail to extract from the chamber, or did it fail to fully eject (stovepipe)?

1 It did not feed after I had fired a round before it.
2 It stayed in the chamber. Did not stovepipe.

One more question ... Did these two problems happen on the same round?

While it's possible that the WWB ammo is the problem here, the issue that you describe could also be caused by a bad/weak extractor. I'm curious how many rounds you have fired with this pistol and if you have ever had this problem with any other ammo?

The gun is only a few months old and most likely has less than a thousand rounds trough it. Never had this trouble with other ammo.

TJ ... Given the round count, I honestly would just keep an eye on it at this point as this my simply be an isolated ammo related incident. If it continues and/or gets more frequent, you may want to contact Ruger and have them evaluate the pistol (I am also assuming that you keep the pistol properly cleaned and lubricated as poor maintenance could also create this issue).

I clean it after every use. Just started using Froglube. Used Hobbes before that.

Good :). Keep us posted if the problem continues and let me know if you have any problems loading the signature icons.

TJ ... You need to change the tags from url tags to image tags
so that your icons display properly. (I fixed the 1st three so that you could use them as a template)
