    ..... is still better than a good day at work!
    took my FNP357 out the other day and it had some "issues". The first load I shot was Triton HP's. On one round, it didn't completely pull the empty case out of the chamber - and then it tried to shove the next round in which just pushed that bullet from that round back into the casing. Wasn't an easy malfunction to clear.The next load was a fifty round box of Atlantic Arms and Ammo flat points and I had one failure to feed. Then I shot a box of Load-X FMJs and about every third round failed to feed. They were jamming against the bottom of the feed ramp. Sooo... is this just one of those guns that needs a long break-in period ( only had 50 rounds thru it before this trip) or is it really ammo finicky or do I have a couple of bad mags??? Guess I will clean it up good and try again with several loads and pay more attention to mags... hope it clears up... seemed to shoot a touch high when it was running:

    I ran a box of Load-X thru my P229 and it ran flawlessly. That marks the 79th different load with the P229!

    79 different loads...your testing is appreciated...I hope the FN settles in for you...I have an FNP-45 Tactical and it is a decent albeit large shooter...:D
