To those that can shoot HPs through their GI

What ammo are you using? I tried some Golden Sabers but it was a big no go. What are you running through yours?

When I broke in my GI's and Mil-Specs, I used 750 rounds of PMC ball ammo, followed by 250 rounds of PMC Starfire 230gr JHP. The design of the Starfire HP is such that it looks and feels like a ball round. I found also I didn't have much problem with other rounds of HP with the exception of CCI's flying ashtrays, incidentally enough, with my GI Champion lightweight, the flying ashtrays worked flawlessly, possible because of the fully supported ramped bbl.

Of course those are springfields: This past weekend I took my RIA GI out along with my new tacticals and Commander model out and they functioned flawlessly with all sorts of ammo, ball and HP until I started using two Promag mags I had around for testing.

Shoot about 350 rounds of FMJ then try the HPs again.

Winchester silvertips and the PDX bonded. Worked like a champ.
Enjoying the best things in life:
1.)Crushing my enemies.
2.)Seeing them driven before me.
3.)Hearing the lamentations of their women.

Federal Tactical 230gr +P (LE45T1). A little hard to come by, but they work great. Again try "breaking in" your pistol with a few hundred rounds of JHP before trying the JHPs again. Also a liberal coating of CLP or another quality lubricant during the break in doesn't hurt either.
