You have to proof your gun before you can rely on it. Once you have proofed it and it's flawless for at least 200 rounds, then go to the HP ammo. Pick the ammo you want to use, test it, if it's reliable, carry it. It's that simple.Boonie said:what about the federal premium personal defence rounds. has anybody had a jam with this ammo? i polished the ramp and it does better but what if it does it again when i need it. i dont really have a certian brand of ammo just what i can buy localy. they dont stock much here in winchester tn. also what is the maxuim grain i can use in it.
I'm new here and just purchased my p3at a couple days ago, so I hope I don't start a fight my first time out of the gate. :-/billjohnso20 said:FMJ is range fodder only. The penetration with FMJs means complete pass through as does the use of Rem Golden Sabers. GoldenLoki has tested the Rem GS here: http://www.goldenloki.com/ammo/gel/380acp/gel380acp.htm. There are other online tests available that show the same results with Rem GS. Over penetration is the greatest risk next to complete misses in any urban area. This is why I only use HP SD ammo. Gold Dots, Cor Bon, and Critical Defense seem to function and perform well.
I'm assuming you don't mean Kel-tec guns, but short barreled .380's in general that the Rem Golden Sabers don't expand well.james__12345 said:Exactly, they don't expand well out of these guns.
