My SA Loaded feeds ball ammo just peachy. Wanted to try a few rounds of hollow points since that's what I want for self defense. First up was Winchester Bonded PDX1 230gr Personal Protection @ 35': Had a few feed problems with the first round of each mag of the Winchesters. Had only loaded 5 rounds into each mag. Next was Magtech Guardian Gold +P 185gr @ 35' (two full 7-rnd mags): Finally Hornady FTX 185gr @ 35' (two full 7-rnd mags): I did a 7-rnd mag with the Winchester and it fed fine. Winchester had the best group (if that's what you can call it). I think it was the Winchesters that produced a ball of flame from the muzzle. Not sure what that would do for night vision but it would be scary as hell looking at it from the wrong end! I'd like to try a few more brands (Speer GoldDot and ASYM Solid Defense X) before I settle on my carry load. BTW - being new, I have no idea if I'm wasting space here or if anyone finds anything useful from this type of range report.
