Gen 4 G23 range report with frustrating Remington ammo
I'm liking shooting the .40 S&W more and more but was frustrated today by FTF's but I think it was the Remington ammo only. I shot the following:
100 rounds of Remington 180gr JHP
100 rounds of Federal White Box 180gr FMJ
50 rounds of Speer Lawman 180gr FMJ
10 rounds of Speer GD 180gr JHP
The only issues were with the Remington, had 8-9 FTF's. Easy fix, looked like the rounds were getting hung up on the feeding ramp. Happened the other day with a Blazer round as well. The hang-ups occurred in both magazines I was using today. With the other stuff, zero issues. No FTF, FTE, or brass to the face. Is it possible I got a bad batch of Remington? It is cheap, $31 for a box of 100 rounds at Walmart.
I've already put 200 rounds of .357 Sig through the gun as well with my G32 barrel. I've had 1 FTF with a WWB 125gr. I also have shot 200 rounds of .40 prior to today, that one 1 FTF. In addition, I have already fired 100 rounds of this cheap Remington 180gr JHP without issue and thus why I think maybe I got a bad batch.
Frustrated as I'm liking the .40 as a sd round. Getting better at shooting it and though I like the .357 Sig a bit more, it's just that bit more expensive to shoot. I always use Speer Gold Dots for sd, 125gr for .357 and 180gr for the .40.
