Yup. My factory barrels and springs have been 110% reliable in my 20SF and 29SF. Zero problems with warm or hot loads. Zero problems with feeding or ejection. Zero problems with my hand loads, factory stuff or underwood stuff. And zero issues with the fabled smilies. I've reloaded my Starline cases after use in the stock barrel and have had no problems at all. Because I carry my Tens almost daily for SD and HD, I won't have an aftermarket setup in these guns. I learned my lesson years ago about trying to buy "better" parts. Anything internal has never worked out and has always ended up in the scrap box to be given away to friends.

I had similar failures with hot ammo and a heavier spring.

In my G20, hot ammo + heaver springs = failures to feed. It also means sharper recoil impulses and a more abrupt forward return.

Hot ammo, warm ammo, or wimpy ammo with the stock spring = 100% function.
That is my exact opposite experience. The weaker spring was causing me issues and heavy spring plus new batch of ammo seems to have solved it.

I am curious. If you still have both the old and the new unfired rounds from UW, please measure the overall length of the cartridge. I would assume not, but verify that he didn't change it... Making it shorter or longer...

Also, my experience with recoil springs is that after some 100-200 rounds, they'd become reliable... Less stiff at the compressed end.

Most of the rounds from Underwood's I measured prior to the pull-downs were 155's, 165's & 180's were 1.2520" - 1.2525".
The 180gr XTP was 1.2590" the 165 Gold Dot 1.2500"

Most recent 180gr Speer TMJ 1.2445"

All of the data is posted over at 10mmFirearms.com in the pull-down areas. http://10mm-firearms.com/index.php

Thx, Shadow. I was curious whether the ammo that didn't feed well was an aberration of their normal mfg measurement. Thus if he corrected them to his normal mfg OAL target, probably close to 1.250", it worked. A date code on the box, a required record by ATF license, would have given him traceability to see if they were on mfg target. That's what I was wondering about.

I gave the brass to a buddy to reload. Kevin from underwood stated that ammo went out with a crimp issue.
