Aegis Ultra II range report (first time out)

Put about 150 rounds through the pistol yesterday. Shoots very well, better than me for sure. I had a couple of hickups and I am hoping this is just part of the break in. The first 3 clips did not load the last round. Action open round at the top of the mag. I carefully loaded the next few clips making sure the last round was seated at the back of the mag. No other failures to do this. I also had one mag load where the action did not stay open. Just one. Is this just part of the break in period? All ammo was Federal 115 gr ball ammo and the clip was the stock clip.
The photo below is my last 100 rounds from 21 feet. For the most part just a big hole with a couple of flyers.

It looks like your Ultra Aegis is a real shooter. I experienced some similar problems when breaking in my Ultra CDP II 9mm but found that after loading the magazines and slapping the backs of them on the palm of my hand to seat the rounds fixed that. Once the magazines got broken in I didn't have to do that any longer, I hope that works for you.

Your report mirrors my experience with my Ultra Aegis II. Chuck has given you good advise. Keep shooting and be safe.

Great news I hope you continue to run trouble free.

FYI:
It's a magazine not a clip, the difference between clips and magazines is the presence of a feed mechanism in a magazine, typically a spring-loaded follower, which a clip lacks.

Ha, you think I would remember after all the money I have spent on them

You're probably stuck thinking about your empty money clip after buying the magazines.

Umm that would be my empty money magazine… Thanks guys for your support and encouragement. I feel very confident in the gun and how it is shooting.

Cool Oh Hell Yeah!!!!

Congrats on the Aegis!!! After a few first range hiccups, it sounds like you've got a shooter on your hands. It's always nice to hear about a new pistol breaking in with very limited issues. Nice grouping (big hole) you shot there. Some smart guy might say that you did that with a shotgun!!!

Keep on shooting and be safe. Thanks for the picture and the range report!!!
