I just bought a Beretta Nano and I'm having the FTE (Failure To Extract) problem. I went on YouTube and figured it may be the 115 gr. ammo I was shooting and lo and behold when I shot Remington 147 gr. ammo, I did not have any FTE. I also tried 124 gr. ammo and had FTE problems about as bad as the 115 gr. ammo. I shot another 50 rds. today of the Remington 147 gr. and had no FTE problems, but when I tried Browning 147 gr. Flex-Point JHP, I had an FTE. Cleared it and continued to shoot the second mag. and this time the spent shell was stuck in the chamber. I wound up having to pry the shell out with a key. I get the argument about the "target" ammo, but I think this Beretta Nano FTE problem has more to do with the chamber and extractor than light bullets. Does anybody have any more up-to-date info on this FTE problem?
