Beretta Px4 Storm Compact - FTF and Stovepipes
New member here and I was hoping I could get some advice.
I purchased a Beretta PX4 Storm Compact and took it to the range for the first time today.
I used the ammunition that the range had on the shelf. PMC Bronze 115gr FMJ.
Using 10 round mags, the first 7 or 8 rounds would fire normally and then the last few in the magazine would either fail to feed into the chamber or if they fired they would stovepipe on ejection. Even with the last round in the magazine fired, sometimes the slide would not lock open with an empty mag.
Needless to say, my first experience with this pistol was somewhat disappointing.
The guy to the lane next to me was using Federal 115gr FMJ and I borrowed 10 rounds from him. The whole magazine fired normally with no failures.
Is it safe to assume that the PMC 115gr FMJ is just not a good match for this pistol? Is it a low pressure round?
I've been shooting rifles for years, but I am somewhat new to handguns, so I won't discount that maybe there's something wrong with my grip or trigger pull as well.
Any advice you could provide would be most appreciated!
Thanks, and sorry for the long post. :)
