Yeah, that’s really not true.I was taught your EDC should eat anything you feed it. Guess I will have to rethink that
My Hellcat is picky. Do you have a micrometer? Measure the length of rounds you have trouble with vs the rounds that feed easily. Is there a difference?Guess I will have to rethink that
It didn't run in one of my .45s. I gave it away ( the ammo, not the pistol) and switched to HST for everything, which runs in everything I have.The rubber “brake pad” in Hornady’s Critical XXXX line is an issue with a LOT of guns.
Just one of several reasons to avoid it.
I prefer .45 myself, but arbitrarily deciding to ONLY shoot it isn't on my agenda. As for 124 v 115, I too only shoot 124. Initially it was because I was told some German semi autos liked to be broken in with heavier rounds before they would reliably cycle 115. As it turns out they simply are more accurate with 124 than they are 115 or 147. At least mine are in my hands.So after my last statement I looked in the difference between 115 and 124 because I made an arbitrary decision to use
124gr 9mm in all my 9mm pistols. Looks like it wasnt a bad decision, but not the best.
So I read this article: 124 vs 115 gr
and arbitrarily decided to shoot only 45acp.
Check the form that should come back with your firearm. It should give a breakdown of what repairs were made if any.OK. MY EMP IS ON ITS WAY BACK FROM SPRINGFIELD FOR THE SECOND TIME. Springfield states that there tech ran 100 rounds of FMJ through the firearm and two mags. of hollow points with no failures, WE'LL SEE. Any advice of how to proceed if the failures continue. Considering my present EDC is a Glock 36 a sub compact 45 that i have no problems shooting. I cannot believe it could be a limp wrist problem.
No, emp mags are proprietary. They are not equivalent to normal 1911 magazines.Anyone know if Wilson Combat mags. will work with the 3 inch EMP with 9 round mags?
The issue is quite likely the Critical Defects.I picked up a new Ronin EMP 3" last night as a retirement gift to myself. I already have an Emissary .45 ACP 4.25" and a Ronin 10mm.
Went to the range today and fired off 100 rounds of MagTech FMJ, worked perfectly. Tried a box of Hornady Critical Defense next and the problems started. Not a grip issue, I have a good grip on things.
9 rounds in the mag, released the slide and it did not fully seat the round. After that, the rounds started diving nose down into the feed ramp almost every round. Didn't matter if it was the first or 9th round in the mag. Sometimes it would feed a second round, but then the 3rd would do it again. Finished the box of 25 and called it a day.
I know 125 rounds is not a break-in and could be part of the problem with the Critical Defense, but with the high price of ammo, both range and defense ammo, I'm not going to keep shooting if there are issues with this and SA CS needs to get involved. I am going to fire off another 150 rounds of the FMJ MagTech and then try the Critical Defense again.
Anyone have any comments or suggestions? Thanks!
