    Bersa Thunder 380 CC- Best ammo for target shooting?

    I just purchased a new BT 380 CC for my wife and we used it at the range for the first time today. Major problem: the Sellier & Bellot 92 gr ammo was not feeding properly and the cartridges jammed in the slide every 2-3 shots. No problem with the Corbon 80 gr DPX ammo . What are the forum members recommendations?

    Thank you

    My wife's Bersa cc seems to prefer lighter, round nosed bullets, once you get about 500 rounds through the gun it shouldn't be very picky.

    What ammo does your wife use for her CC. The S&B 92 gr was a FMJ.
    Thanks for the reply.

    +1 on Corbon for your defense round. I've put at least 60, 80gr. DPX through my wife's Thunder 380 and that's what it stays loaded with. I also have used Golden Sabre's without issue. For target, I've run both Winchester White Box and Remington UMC with no problems.(Both WalMart rounds)

    I've put 370 rounds through my BT380 and have shot Remington Green Box, S&B, MagTechs, Georgia Arms bulk, and Cor Bon DPX. The only ammo that my gun did not like was the S&B (rounds 50-100 through this gun). I had 3 FTF malfunctions in 50 rounds. No malfunctions of any kind with any of the other ammo.
