    Shout about 200 rounds through it this time.

    100 rounds of American Eagle
    50 rounds of Magtech
    25 rounds of Hornady Tap +P
    10 rounds Federal +Ps


    Also got in a Wilson Combat magazine - didn't have that last week.



    First 60 rounds i had about 8 fail to feeds - all Magtechs and Federals.

    Next 125 rounds i had no fail to feeds - including the Hornady Tap +Ps.




    Very happy so far.

    Fail to fire? As in a bad primer or something?

    Or are you talking about feeding?

    Looks like you should stay away from MagTech then... 16% failure is pretty shitty.

    Have you got a set of calipers? My Kimber likes rounds long, around 1.255-1.260

    next time it hangs up, keep a camera handy and take a shot of how exactly it's getting hung up. If it's getting hung up so the nose is pointed up at the top of the barrel, it may not like the bullet length.
