Hello Al, first post:
 Went to the range last week and tryed 5 different kinds of ammo
Corbon DPX .380----------------------80gr hollow point
Federal Hi Power-----------------------95gr fmj
Winchester-----------------------------95gr fmj
Flocehi----------------------------------95gr fmj
Remington------------------------------95gr fmj
The bottom 4 shot with out a mistake.  The faster i pulled the triger the better it shot'
THEN....I started shooting the Corbon DPX.  Every other 2nd or 3rd shot the casing was half out and next bullet was trying to go in.  Dose anyone have a idea what went wrong?  That little gun dose a great job.
You ask how many times was it shot at the range that day, 80 rounds. Then i shot the corbon DPX, about 9 rounds. Went back to the other and shot about 40 more. They shot great. It's got to be the corbon, just don't know way.
Thanks ahead of time for your info[/color]

How many rounds had you shot? These things really like to be cleaned and lubed even more so till after break-in. I hold my shooting to 50 rounds per cleaning. Has it had a F&B ?

+1 Burley!

You have to keep 'em clean and well lubed - especially when they are new!

+1 bobo, the following items can help , they mostly speed up break in ( do not remove a lot of steel - just polish the areas that would wear in on their own with lots of use. BUT cleaning and lube are the most important

You may need to do a fluff and buff;

polish the chamber;

and maybe a barrel hood mod.

They are very easy to do and can be done w/ minimal tools and experience

First of all... My standard welcome:


Barb ... Glad to have you here.

I would consider the fluff and buff, good clean and lube.

Concerning the failures... if you have not done the above fluff and buff... well... consider it.

Second... the other rounds you listed... were any of them shaped like the corbon? I noticed all were FMJ. You may need to spend some time with the dremel and polish. It is part of what most at KTOG consider the standard Fluff and Buff.

Report back.
