    My recent trip to the range was alittle annoying with my G23. I have maybe close to 1500 rds through it by now. I was trying some 'new to me' Corbon DPX, 140 gr. No problem. Tried some Hornady CD, 165 gr next. No problem. Then I was using some American Eagle SWC. It was either 165 or 180 gr. All of a sudden I was having FTFeed issues. It happened a couple of times. Wasn't sure of that American Eagle ammo. I had some Hornady left still and two spare mags. No problem. I think between that ammo and my #1 spare mag, there's my problem? Didn't want to trust that mag anymore, so I chucked it. Glad it happened at the range. Usually the mag is the culprit. Yes?

    I would say ammo, why didn't you try some known good ammo in the suspect mag?

    I would agree that you should test the suspect mag with ammo known to work well in your pistol.

    It seems like the ammo to me. My G24 has had 2 failures to feed with Fiocchi 165gr TCEB. Everything else in .40 through it has been GTG.

    Most Glocks will fail to feed SWC's. Shoot FMJ and JHP and you won't have problems.

    Let me be the third to go with the SWC,not known as the best bullet design when it comes to feeding in semi automatics. SJ 40
