I had previously posted in the "9mm break in instructions" thread about hollow points hanging up on the feed ramp of a used CQB Compact I purchased. When I got the gun I first shot it with the existing recoil spring, then I replaced the recoil spring with a standard round wire 11 lb. Still hung up on feed ramp. WCR confirmed my question to try a heavier spring. So I tried the flat wire set-up at 13 lb., and WC "Light Oil" at the range last week and all seems to be well!! No failure to feed. All rounds chambered with out a hick-up. It was a very small sample size of 16 rounds each of: Federal Tactical HST 147 grain, Winchester Ranger RA9T 147 grain, and Speer Gold Dot 124 grain. Very smooth. Looking forward to more "Testing" ;)
Still reading and learning. There is a wealth of information here on 1911 forum.
It seems hollow points just needed a little extra pop from a heavier recoil spring to chamber and not get hung up on the feed ramp.

Congrats, glad WCR was able to get you taken care of so easily (he usually does). This forum has a tremendous knowledge base present, part of what makes it such a great place.
