I'm not really glad that you feel my pain because that means your having problems too! Anyway, 1.260 is by no means bare minimum. I load my XTP's to the same factory OAL as the Federal EFMJ's at 1.240. I hear many guys going even deeper.Originally posted by GUNNER:
I've exactly the same problem with a brand new TRP.
My reasoning is powder residue after alot of shooting. It feed fine for a while when the gun is clean, maybe 50rds. Perhaps a poorly buffed feed ramp.
I'm not sure about the little "tit" in the middle of the follower in the mag either.
I've had UMC 230 FMJ do the the same also. Have tried different ammo, DITTO.
Bullet seating out of spec? I have measured some rounds to be seated below COL 1.260. I think that a bare minimum for most 1911s.
Maybe not enough taper crimp?
I can't figure it quite yet. Thought you'd all have some answers. I'm miffed right now.
