Stainless Pro Raptor Range Report

Just finished with 300 rounds through my Stainless Pro Raptor II.
45 Auto Federal American Eagle 230 Grain FMJ AE45A.

Absolute perfection! Even with the cheap clip that came with the gun.
Another 200 rounds tomorrow.
Then on to 45 Auto Federal HST 230 grain HP hollow point LE ammo (P45HST2) and see how it digests that load.

Good to hear! What's a clip? My Kimber uses magazines!

Congrats on a beautiful shooter. Sounds like it shoots at least as well as it shoots.

Congrats and sounds like you have a keeper...

P.S...
Chips have clips to keep them fresh
Pistols have magazines...

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.

Well today I officially broke in the Raptor.

500 rounds of 45 ACP - Auto Federal American Eagle 230 grain FMJ AE45A100.

Plus 20 rounds of 45 Auto Federal HST 230 grain HP hollow point LE ammo P45HST2.

Not 1 FTF or FTE!

After shooting 500 rounds.

Not cleaning in between.

I'd think the Federal HST will run well in the Raptor??????????
