need advice on my colt jamming with hollow points




Hell I'm new here but not new to forums .
I bought a colt .45 defender , this is my first colt.
Bought box of winchester .45 auto hollow points.
I stuck the mag in pulled the slide the hollow point was stuck on the feeding ramp.
Never had this issue .
I tryed other types of ammo and still jams when loading 1 in the barrel ?
Now if I pull the slide back and insert the mag ,it loads one but really rough .
Ramp looks polished too.
Any help and advice would be great thanks
Fmj load great and shoot well too.

does a firm bump on the back of your slide when trying to chamber JHP's allow them to chamber fully? Mine used to choke on SWC's until it "wore in" a bit, it always ran JHP and FMJ though, but SWC's needed a good tap on the back of the slide

I would run a couple hundred fmj's first. The smaller 1911's seem to be more prone to the break-in philosophy. At least that is my experience.

Looks like this is a good place to start looking!

Did you replace the extractor or was it tuned by a Smith?

Mentioned above, take it out and try feeding.
