Hi Rick,

My M1903 I assume you have the .32ACP version (the .380 was the M1908). In .380 my favorite is the CCI Gold Dot. However with the.32ACP I think you're best off sticking with ball ammo for increased penetration and maximum reliability. When I say "reliability" I'm not talking about the feed ramp, either. With the .32 there's a risk of "rimlock", where the rim of the top round in the mag slips behind the round below it and gets snagged. The shorter the round the worse the problem. Winchester Silvertips are the worst offenders in this regard. Ball ammo is usually loaded to maximum OAL and is what the M1903 was designed to feed.
