MY new 9mm conpact will not feed any of the hollow points I have tried (Win Ranger, Rem GS, & Gold Dots) with the exception of Federal Hydra shock. The feed ramp seems to be at too steep of an angle and the round jams between the slide and feed ramp. pulling back on the slide an releasing will allow it to go into battery. I guess it could also be the mag follower not positiong the round at the correct angle.

Should I send it back to S&W or just accept this as is and stick to Federal ammo.

Thank Yall

Absolutely not accept this. By all means let the factory take a look at it and make it right. You didn't spend $500 on a gun that can only shoot one brand of ammo. Sorry you are having problems. You know that S&W will send you a pre-paid mailing label right? Give them a call first thing next week.

You aren't riding the slide forward are you? Will all the rounds chamber if you lock the slide back, then release the slide with the slide stop release button.

Maybe I misunderstood. My understanding was that you are having failures to feed when firing not just when cycling a load in the chamber. If I read that one wrong then definately the advice from others applies.

My wife's 9c feeds JHP just fine. I've tried a couple kinds of Gold Dot, HydraShok, and some HST. Zero feed problems.



I wouldn't accept it not feeding, either.
