Took my pistol shooting yesterday, after eating , presents, etc., after 150 rds. the pistol locked up with a rd. in the chamber. The slide also didn't go all the way forward, lacking 1/4". Kept pistol in safe direction, the tried to rack slide (after removing mag. ). 5th try the rd. ejected. Put new mag. w/ same ammo, had same problem. Changed ammo from Fiocchi 200gr. JHP to Remington 230gr. JHP, no problems. Loaded all mags with Remington, no problems. Switched back to Fiocchi, 4 rds. lock up, same problem. Took longer to clear this time. My mags are Novaks, Wilson Combat 8 rounders. I apologize if this is in the wrong area. Hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday.
