    I have succesfully used the following standard ammo with my p3. Winclean, Blazer, and some reloads. With the F & B I've done, I am now ready to try the hollow points.

    What hollow point ammo has been the most reliable for all of you for feeding and extraction? Or is there one or two to stay away from altogather? Thanks. Tom :)

    Haven’t heard of any particular hollow points not working well in the P-3AT.

    The favorites for most folks here (and believe this is pretty much the correct order for defensive use) are:

    Cor-Bon DPX
    Double Tap Gold Dot
    Remington Golden Saber
    Winchester Ranger
    Speer Gold Dot
    Federal Hydra-Shok

    Unless you're from NJ where "hollow points" are illegal, so this expanding bullet is usually used:
    Federal EFMJ

    Corbon DPX were 100% reliable in my old P3AT.

    I have decided to switch to DoubleTap Gold Dots in the new one, mainly for cost reasons. I have not put any through it yet, but since it has gobbled up all the FMJ I have thrown at it, including some DT, plus a mag full of DPX, I think it will be fine. Next time I go shooting, which will be the Sunday after Thanksgiving at best, I will take the 3AT and box of the DT GD's for round 1 reliability testing. I think 50 of them is all my hand will want anyway.

    Both P3-ATs here work 100 percent with Corbon DPX!

    Try it, you'll like it! :)
