I will shoot some more this Friday....I just picked up (50) rounds of Hornady's 115 gr. Critical Defense....I'll run a mag thru her and see how she likes the CD...
..just got done shooting (42) rounds = 6 total magazines.
ammo = 115 gr. JHP
brass = Winchester
powder = 6.0 gr. Unique
..as others have experienced......at 12 yards....about 10" low and 6" to the left....got her sighted in with no issues...
1st mag = 7 shots 100%
2nd mag = after 5th shot, slide locked open
3rd mag = after 5th shot, slide locked open
4th mag = 7 shots 100%
5th mag = after 2nd shot, FTE, remaining rounds 100%
6th mag = after 2nd shot, FTE, remaining rounds 100%
I need to do some searching here on taurusarmed.net to find out the possible causes of the FTE......I thought I read somewhere about some ejector issues??
Slide would not return all the way back....top round in mag would prevent that.
Empty was still partially chambered. To clear, I locked the slide back, drop the magazine....then the empty would fall out of the chamber.
Yes...I did thoroughly clean the slide, frame and chamber with de-greasing agent.
Okay....before I put the empty brass into my vibrating cleaner....I re-chambered all of the empties....lo and behold the (2) that had the FTE's...were in fact slightly BULGED...
I have (5) reloads on this brass...only thing I can surmise is that the 6.0 gr. charge of Unique may be on the edge.
I have a 1986 Dillon Square-D Progressive.
