I didn't even get any satisfaction from the cussing. :crybaby:

That's just maddening!

Do you think it's all related to the new grips somehow?

@1:54 there's a guy standing in a questionable spot. I mean I know you're a good shot, but I'm a skeerdy-cat.

Totally! the current hypothesis is that the metal grip makes my magazines sit lower, perhaps from the magazine catch cut differently. So the feed lips are right below the barrel ramp instead of it being higher using my plastic grip. That makes the ammo's overall length super important, if it's too short, it will rise up and hit the top of the barrel and not go into the chamber. I think that is what's going on.

The next test is to load up a bunch of longer ammo, change my mag springs and tune the magazine feed lips to spec and try again.

I know you’ve said before, but I’ve forgotten, what set-up are you running there?
