You are correct, it was reported as "spotty" years ago. I usually only carry the Remington brand because the lead is soft enough to reliably expand and I use the others for practice. (usually) I also trust the Winchester FBI Load more than the Federal but in a pinch I would use all 3. (Federal being last)
