How many rounds of defensive ammo do you folks run through your carry guns before you deem that ammo fit for duty? How many malfunctions (if any) would you allow during the ammo test? Right now I carry Hornady Critical Defense in my Glock 23, my wifes G19 is loaded with the 147 grain hydra shok. Both those guns have fired about 200 rounds of their ammo with no failures, but we are thinking about trying something new. She likes the 124 +p Gold dot and Im looking into the ranger t. The winchester is fairly cheap but those Gold dots are really pricey. I know you cant cheap out on stuff like this, but if I set my ammo test at 300 rounds, and i get a double feed on the last mag out of 300, should I really scrap the load and find something else for the gun?
Also, would you recommend firing the whole test batch in one session? Or would you split it up between two or three trips to the range?
What do you guys think?
