Interesting Ammo Test if you have good calipers
Here's something I seldom see discussed but it's something that affects everyone who carries a semi auto.
take a box of your favorite carry ammo and gauge the length of each round in a new box. How close to the same length are they?
then chamber each round once by allowing the slide to pick it up from the mag as it would normally. Gauge it again. You may find that the round is up to .08 shorter. Do this with all the rounds in the box...I'm assuming that box holds 20 to 25 rounds. Repeat.
Is your ammo getting shorter with each rechambering? if so, you need to set each round aside after it has been chambered once and save it for the range. If you find a brand that does not get shorter...use it.
You might be surprised when you do this test.
let the flames begin.
