Same here. When I empty the magazine to shoot the range ammo (about once a week), I mix up the carry rounds so there's only a 1-in-13 chance of putting the same round back in the chamber. When I practice with my carry ammo, I shoot the "in use" magazine first, so the ammo gets changed out, usually about once a month.Set-back is rarely a problem for me since the only time I remove my carry ammo is when I practice at the range,
Yeah...If you're really concerned about bullet setback another thing you could do is just chamber with a range round (FMJ) and have the SD rounds in the mag(s). Just chamber the FMJ round once and if you eject it, use it at the next range session and load a fresh FMJ.
The round in the chamber may be the only one you get off in the event you really need it. Guns fail to cycle due to the slide being grabbed, it being pressed into someone, clothing being in the way, limp wristing...ectra.
You want to bet your life on a $1.25 per bullet DPX round...or a $.22 Federal American Eagle round?
If you are so conserned, when you rechamber, go with a round lower in the mag.
Ya know, it's a combination of factors.So, shot placement isn't what matters, it's the round you've used?.? Yeah . . .
That's exactly my point within your original single shot scenario. It's the trajectory, depth of penetration, organs struck, the perps psychology and physical state, etc. that matters in ending the aggression and not just some magic bullet. My point is that the bullet alone does not determine the outcome. I know you know this.Ya know, it's a combination of factors.
I hear the placement comment all the time, but placement with a round that's not going to do the job isn't all that effective, is it?
You may not get the shot you want. You may get a perepheral shot, an obstructed shot, have to shoot through cover or in a crowded area hoping your round doesn't blow through someone...
If you could place every shot perfect, then why not 124 grain FMJ NATO ball ammo?
Real life isn't perfect.
Neither is real life shot placement.
This is a method I used on my old P99, with the external extractor. However, I have heard several reports of CZ and Glock (maybe others) extractors breaking due to manual loading. It does work, but be careful about it.If you know what you are doing, you can manually chamber a round then put a full magazine in. This cuts down on bullet setback.
