WALTHER WMP AMMUNITION RECOMMENDATIONS
In this article, we will go over the Walther WMP Ammunition Recommendations.
The new Walther WMP isn’t just another target practice plinker, it was developed to be a high-quality, lightweight, easy-to-shoot, and affordable pistol for shooters who want to stay READY as part of their active outdoor lifestyle.
If you have ever spent much time with .22 caliber firearms, you know that they can often be hit or miss depending on the ammunition you feed them. They may LOVE one brand but refuse to function with another brand. We have done extensive testing with the new Walther Magnum Pistol and we are more than happy to share the reliability findings with you here. *The findings below are the results of the testing done ONLY with the Walther WMP and are NOT a reflection or statement of the quality of the ammunition nor the Brands/Manufacturers listed.
