    My M&P 40 has hundreds of rounds through it, never had an issue. Tried Fiocchi 170gr today and had almost a dozen feed jams. I think the Fiocchi bullet has a slightly smaller flat nose than normal. Some quick Googling shows others have experienced similar issues with that ammo with M&Ps and I also saw a Walther P99 mentioned.

    I won't be using that ammo again. If the jams stop I will chaulk it up to definitely being the ammo.

    PS. It's loaded pretty hot. Much muzzle flash as well.

    Give me a round nose bullet any day.

    I've never seen a 40SW round nose. They are all TC or HP.

    I've shot a lot of that ammo through several Glocks without issue, but the stuff was bought a long time ago. Yours could be from a more recent lot that has some kind of issue.

    By round nose I was referring to 9mm and .45 :supergrin:

    After more Googling I'm convinced it's an issue with this ammo. I should have stayed away after I saw "170gr" but that's all they had.

    Fiocchi is normally good stuff and I've never had trouble with other calibers but this 170gr TC stuff sucks hard.
