    I think what you are getting is the snap so you are letting the gun nose up. If you shake the federal it sounds half full so my guess is they use a fast powder so they can use less, cheaper to make mo money mo money mo money If you ever start loading your own, a powder which almost fills the case and gives the desired velocity will push more than snap.

    I was gonna say it if someone didn't. My M&P has never met a bullet type it didn't eat up and spit out EVERY SINGLE TIME.

    My 1911 was more picky about what it would fire reliably. But in all seriousness I have never heard of any real problems with Glocks. Is it possible you over oiled the gun when you cleaned it and the bullets were really dirty and that formed a little paste or something?

    Glad to hear its working reliably with decent ammo. :D I still shoot federal champion at the range here and there because of the price ;-)

    Interesting thread. I own four Glocks, and have never had any problems with any of them. Now my Kimber Ultra CDP, however.....

    Couple of things.... American Eagle is made by Federal.

    I had FTE issues with my G26 at first... all with Sellier and Bellot 115gr FMJ and all loads of Fiocchi FMJ. Everything else has not been an issue, and that would include Lawman TMJ, Federal Champion 115 FMJ, American Eagle 115 and 147 FMJ, Blazer TMJ and brass, Remington winclean FMJ, and a local reloaded TMJ. I had one FTE with the local stuff, but I've fired a lot of that stuff with no problems. The problems with the S&B and Fiocchi were constant, consistent, and obnoxious.

    Because you had problems with both pistols, perhaps you had a bad box. I've sent countless rounds of both Federal and American Eagle downrange with no issues.

    I've been told by a few Glock lovers that the first 1000-1500 rounds are considered break-in for a Glock, and that you can have ammo issues at first with the barrel being a little tighter, so some casings "hang up" a little. True or not, I've had no problems for quite a few months now.

    And no.... it was never a limp wrist thing, for those of you who know I'm a woman....

    I took my G17 Gen4 out for the second time today. I cleaned her up after the 1st and less than stellar first time. I shot another 200 rounds of mixed ammo.
    all Wally world, Rem UMC 115gr jhp(50 rnds), Federal Champion 115 fmj (100 rnds) and Winchester WB 115gr fmj (50 rnds).. I had no failures this time.
    I did have about 6 instances where the cases ejected to the top of my head. this was the federal ammo

    so one failure out of 435 round.. did i mention that my gen4 has the updated RSA but has the 336 ejector. I won't trust the gun until i have 500+ failure free rounds through it..but i am happier now.
