HOW WILL THIS (name any) AMMO FEED AND FUNCTION IN MY “GUN”?
I am often asked how accurate a certain type of ammo will be in a certain type of gun. I also get asked how a certain type of ammo will feed/cycle in a certain type of gun, hence this short article.
Friends, when firearms of the same model, are made on the same assembly line, on the same day, by the same people, with consecutive serial numbers, they can still vary from one another—sometimes they vary enough that whatever can be said of one CANNOT be said of ANY of the others. There can be many reasons for such great variances in consecutively made guns, but it happens a lot.
As one (just one) example, consider the following scenario that happens every day on assembly lines. Chamber reamers wear with use, so a new reamer will make a bigger chamber than a worn one will. Barrel makers have a tolerance/range of acceptable chamber dimensions and when a reamer gets too small, they start using a new one. So, an assembly line worker is making Berretta 92’s (insert any make and model) and he has just put one together with a barrel that came down the line with the other parts, but that barrel was the very last barrel made with a worn out reamer, so the chamber is tight/small, but the very next barrel was made with a new reamer and it is therefore big. CHAMBER DIMENSIONS MATTER! This is one tiny example of how two consecutively serial numbered guns, can have differing firing and feeding characteristics. So if the gun with the small chamber shoots a certain load well or cycles with certain ammo, it does not mean that the gun with the bigger chamber will do anything like its mate did. Remember that all gun parts are either cast or machined and machine tooling and casting dies wear out over time………………..so what happens with chamber reamers, can happen with any and all parts of a gun!!!
Never mind that over time gun manufacturers, just like car makers, refrigerator makers, soda pop makers ,etc., make changes to their products and they do not necessarily announce such changes…………
The same goes for after-market barrels and other parts. Mass manufacturing, while very good these days, does not reproduce exactness over and over. Guns and all of their parts that must function in unison are INDIVIDUALS with INDIVIDUAL characteristics!
Bottom line is this, because one gun of any make or model acts a certain way with certain ammo, only applies to THAT GUN, WITH THAT AMMO. To apply what one gun does with any ammo, to another gun of the same make and model, is meaningless, a waste of time and possibly dangerous.
You’ll need to fire the very ammo in question, in the gun in question, to know anything about that gun!

IF YOU DO NOT READ THIS, IT IS ON YOU!
All shooters are being inconvenienced with what is happening to our society and the rush it is causing on ammo supplies. We have LOTS of ammo in stock and are making more at a huge volume on a daily basis. If our web site allows you to order any item, that means it is in stock—WE DO NOT TAKE ORDERS FOR ITEMS WE DO NOT HAVE! So, please do not email and ask if items are in stock. If they aren’t, the shopping cart will not take your order.
We have hundreds of customers to get orders to on a daily basis. In order for us to accomplish this for our customers, we ask the following.
Be sure of what you are ordering. You are going to get what you ordered.
Do not contact us and ask to change an order you’ve already placed. When we manually change orders it requires a lot of time that we do not have during this rush and it keeps us from serving all of our customers. If you’d like to change an order, we can no longer do that till things slow down, so simply place another order for more product, but PLEASE, NO MORE CHANGES after the fact!
We NEVER have and never will take ammo exchanges or returns and then turn around and re-sale that ammo to unsuspecting customers as factory new ammo—this is not safe nor is it fair to customers who are buying what they think is new and safe ammo. No ammo is tamper proof! So please stop asking to exchange or get a refund for ammo you ordered, but have changed your mind about.
Please do not contact us and ask for tracking numbers or “when will my ammo ship”? Our system automatically emails out tracking numbers on the orders we ship each day, however, because these emails are coming from a corporation shopping cart, many of these emails may go to your spam folder……..please look there. If it is not in your spam folder, that means we have not yet shipped. At current order rates, we are shipping within 5-7 business days of the time an internet order is placed. Please sit tight. Your ammo will arrive at the same time if you track it or not and will certainly arrive later if we are swamped answering questions instead of getting orders shipped. When 30-50 people per day send emails asking for tracking information and we have to pull that information up, then type it out and email it, it takes a huge portion of our work day that we should be using to ship those orders to customers in need. Please leave us alone so we can serve all of you. (ship to you) It’s a bit selfish, during times of shortages, when so many folks need to protect their families, to slow us down because you ordered carelessly or want to change your order. Right now, we expect you to do your part to help us all get the ammo we need in our troubled country.
These measures are hopefully temporary and will not be needed for long as we enjoy the interaction with our customers, so please, for the time being, be mindful of all those others who are also trying to get ammo during what I think is a societal meltdown/emergency. Hopefully, we can serve you all. We want you and your families to be armed and safe and we wish you the best during these trying times. My biggest concern is that things will worsen yet more, for a while. Until things straighten out in our government and society, we will have to streamline our customer service in order to serve all customers. Thank you for your understanding.
Good shooting and God bless,
