      stovepipes and jams

      Finally took my new uspc9 out today to shoot more than 1-2 rounds out of it. I love the gun compared to my smith 686. Only problem was each round stovepiped and jamed. In all fairness I was given the box of reloads 124gnfmc. will this gun be ammo picky? anyone reloading a round that seems to work well? A fellow at the range gave me a few factory rounds these ran flawlessly I cant tell you whatthey were and he left after giving me the shells. being my father reloads tons of rounds for me I really would like to get some load input.

      Any auto made can be a little choosey about what it likes. I would try different makes of factory ammo untill I found the one that's the best for my gun. Then see if you can reload it to the same specs. Sounds like the reloads you had were a little to weak to cycle the slide. Good luck.

      I am not familiar with HK's but my M&P's like reloads in the middle to upper end of the load chart. They have to have enough steam to operate the mechanism.

      Yeah, the other guys are on the money. Not enough juice in the reloads to cycle the gun completely. Get better ammo.
