    Taurus PT111 question

    Not the pro...the older one....anyone have JHP problems?I have yet to put any through it..but it feeds FMJ like a champ.I plan on putting some JHPs through it tonight,but thought I'd ask ahead of time.Any brands I should avoid?Right now I have some Winchester "personal defense" and a few Corbon +p's.and some Federal "sub sonic 147gr.

    When brand new, I had a couple of Speer (Gold Dots I think) stop half way up the feed ramp. Other than that, I had no problems.

    I never used +P in my PT111 since the manual seems to hint that it shouldn't be used.

    I have been using WWB FMJ and Winchester Personal Protection 115gr JHP for practice. I use the same JHPs for defense.

    The Winchester JHPs are reliable in my PT111 and I have seen what they can do first hand. I am satisfied with the expansion and penetration. They are also cheap enough to practice with.

    YMMV

    I have fired Golden Sabers, Hydrashocks, Gold Dots, the Winchester Standard HP ammo, Blazer HP's, Ranger XST's, and all manner of other hollow points through my PT-111 (non-PRO). And I have had no stoppages at all, of any kind.

    Mine just digests anything I feed it. It's a great gun.

    I've had feeding problems with my PT111, and the shape of the bullet appears to be the problem. More rounded projectiles, such as Golden Saber BJHP and good old Remington 115 JHP +P, work fine.

    I usually run golden sabers or hydrashoks in mine but it has never been picky about any ammo. Those are just my preference. I havent tried any +p so I have no input there.
