Noobie here. 1st trip to the range with my new PMR 30. Wow, I was excited and ready to go put holes in the targets. 170 rounds of 5 different mfr. ammo. later it had over a dozen FTF's, several of them when the action locked open with rounds still in the magazine. A lot of them hung up partially into the breech, denting the casing. No failure to eject that I can remember, but wa-a-a-a-a-y too many did not feed. I started out taking notes, which of 3 magazines, which ammo, etc. Got to be too many failures. Used Federal Champion, Remington, CCI Maxi Mag, Winchester Super X, and some Fiocchi. didn't seem to make much difference which ammo or magazine. I will try again and attempt to be more diligent in my observation and note taking. I just kinda got taken by surprise and got so disappointed that I said to heck with it, too many failures. Yep, I used a speed loader to help get the magazines full (only put 20 in some of them), did the tapping of the magazine to seat the ammo as instructed by Kel-Tec. Thought I did pretty much everything right, results were terrible. I'm used to my 9 MM semi and .22 WMR/LR revolver working virtually flawlessly (neither one Kel-Tec), so I'm baffled as to why I spent almost $500.00 on something that thus far is super unreliable.
