The only thing that occasionally has survived an entire magazine full (6rds) without a problem has been the Magtech FD380A JHP. In every other instance where I have tried a magazine full of a single type of ammo, at least one cartridge in that mag experienced a jam or some sort.
Today, the ones in the above list showing numbers to the right are the ammo that experienced failure to chamber (1), failure to extract (3) or light primer strikes (2).
It's time to head to the gun stores, again, to seek out other varieties of ammo, since I am about done with my existing stores of varieties. I have lots of ammo left, just none that are new and untried in this specific P380.
Suggestions, anyone?? I'm all ears.
