Took her to the range. It won't feed my favorite load though. 230 gr Gold Dot's wouldn't feed no matter how many or rather few were in the mag. Other than that it shoots really good-awesome but not quite in the awesome-spectacular realm. Worthy competition to the Glock , XD,and HK-45 USP.

Wolly ,you might want to try a slower powder like 335 . It will give a longer duration of port pressure before bullet exit. Looking in my Sierra V it lists 25.3 at max for H322 and only 3200 fps. With H335 you can go up to 28 and close in on 3500 fps.

Do you push on the loaded rounds after loading to check neck and crimp tension.
