I picked up a new Beretta Bobcat recently. I really like the way it (should) work/s, but some ammo tests were a bit of a disappointment.
I tried a few clips of the cheap Federal bulk stuff, and literally ever round had an issue. It either failed to eject after firing (firing the first shot single action or after easing a round in after it jammed), got the shell caught when ejecting, or got stuck cycling the next round in. I assume they're just too weak to make the slider cycle properly.
Then I tried some CCI Mini Mags. I only had one clip worth (they were in my pocket, I assumed I'd spend some time screwing around with the cheap bulk stuff and expected a few ftfs, but not every one), but it worked far better. However, one did fail to eject AFTER failing to fire (I could see the pin strike, must have been too light, which is mostlikely the ammo and not the gun).
Someone recommended Stingers. I was wondering what would have the most pressure to make it cycle properly without swelling (which would cause it to not eject properly), and a tip that isn't so soft that it doesn't bend or otherwise deform when cycling.
Thanks for the input!
