Another question on ammo

I know the general consensus is to fire a number of rounds through your weapon the brand of ammo to be used in order to gain the confidence to know how they fire when you no sh** need it.

Iíve put quite a few rounds of Hornady 40 S&W XTP through my Gen 4, g27 without any problems. I just bought a box of Hornady Critical Duty because the XTPís werenít available (imagine that during these times ). I consider the Critical Duty to be better than the XTPís.

Question: Should I still fire a few of these rounds through my g27 just to make sure of no problems? Did I answer my own question with my first paragraph? Opinions please.

Put a magazine of your new ammo through it to put your mind at rest.

While it probably would be fine, even just a few rounds would probably make most feel better and be a good start to make sure there are no issues.
