    Uh oh, mixed my 165gr & 180gr

    I accidentally mixed my 165 and 180gr 40cal PDX1 rounds today, i would rather not mix bullet weights in my magazine....do you think that would cause feeding/malfunction issues? If I dont have a scale, is there any way to tell the difference?

    The only difference would be a slight change in POI, negligible at defensive ranges.

    Line the rounds up in a row and look to see the line where thebase of the projectile slightly bulges the case.

    The 180's projectiles will be slightly longer than the 165's.

    Cool

    If you mix the rounds in the mags I really don't think it makes no matter mind. Both weights are good SD loads.

    If your gun feeds each reliably, it will certainly feed both. At 99.9999999% of SD ranges, any POI change will be negligent.

    Actually this has been known to cause blown primer pockets, case head separation and excessively dangerous chamber pressure! Just kidding, your gun should handle any bullet weight in it's caliber.
