Dirty Ammo

Reading through the posts here, it seems that everyone has an opinion on which manufacturer makes the dirtiest ammo. Some say CCI, others say Winchester White Box...and more.
Is there a definitive answer as to which one is dirtier ?
Failing that, what do you think.

There's really no definitive answer, how do you measure the amount of crap in your gun, on your hand and arm. For what it's worth Winchester White Box gets my vote.

Ran the 1st 100 rounds this weekend and I used Perfecta. I had never used this before but hey it was on sale at Walmart. I understand it is made by Fiocchi.
Point is, it seemed pretty dirty. Let me know if anyone has experienced this ammo?

I agree with others. White box is dirty and actually smells when burnt.

I agree Mini Me, the magtec I've tried is just as dirty as W white box.

The dirtiest ammo I ever shot was Wolf steel cased ammo. My Eclipse Pro II didn't like this stuff at all and I would never buy it again. I only used it because it was the only 45acp ammo this store near the range had and I wanted to shoot. My gun was filthy inside and out. I have never seen anything dirtier. It also had a horrible smell.

Agree 100% Amazing that after shooting WWB and then cleaning I can still smell burnt powder.

On the flip side, I find Fed Alum cased 230 gr ball some of the cleanest range ammo.

It's all dirty, I've never returned from the range with a clean gun.
