Hello, this is my first post but have lurked on this site for a coupla weeks now, picking up some helpful info along the way. Finally picked up my new p3at tonite, had quite a time trying to locate one. Anyway I picked up a box of winchester .380 FMJ (in the white box) before leaving the store. I think I read on here that for the first 100-200 rds that ball ammo should be used? Anybody have any experience with this brand? I will be using corbon eventually for SD.
Thanks

I always use Remington JHP from Wal-Mart (in the 100 round pack) and I have had good luck with it.  Welcome!
that is good ammo, IMO. I shoot it allthe time, it is my ammo of preference when I can buy it right...

Welcome to KTOG, R_Squared! I am partial to the Rem. UMC FMJ, but the Winchester works as well.

I hope your P3AT is a good one. There are weird things happening to some of these guns lately.

Packer.

Thanks for the welcomes>
The winchester white box was all the shop had for sale. I read on another forum (bersatalk) that there has been some problems with the WWB (feeding, ejection). Maybe i will stop at wally world tomorrow and pick up some Rem JHP until my piece is broken in.>
I hope to strip/clean/lube & possible F&B this weekend and shoot a coupla mags to see how it shoots.>
Thanks for the advice.

Shoot it first and see how it does straight out of the box so you'll know if it really needed the F&B or not. Otherwise you might just be doing it for nothing if it already works.

Mine 1st generation P-3AT work perfect out of the box and always has.
