Colt Defender / Aluminum Frame Info (what ammo?)
I have shot about 400 rounds of Winchester Ball thru the custom Colt Defender. I have only had one FTF in the first 40 rounds due the gun getting pretty dry.
I have not had a single issue since
I picked up a box of the Speer Gold Dot Short Barrel Ammo last weekend and did have 1 FTF in the 25 rounds.
My gunsmith that put her together recommended Gold Saber due to it's design and the fact the gun has an aluminum frame. I have yet to find any to try.
I noticed with all my mods that the feedramp was purposely not polished. I was told that you don't want to polish aluminum feed ramp until you have to due to wear etc because you can only do it so many times due to the aluminum.
The gunsmith told be the short barrel (WIDE HOLE) ammo will cut into the ramp and should stay away from it. I was kind of bummed because what I have read about the Speer Short Barrel was good stuff.
I want to find a good carry ammo for this gun that will feed but also not chew up the ramp.
Any comments? Recommendations?
