Nothing hasn't worked yet, my eats these so far. I've used Federal, Hornady, CCI (Blazer), and PMC.

I'm surprised the Hornady didn't work, assuming they were Critical Defense.

I've found this more pointed ogive is actually mid-way up the ramp when you inspect the "feed" with the slide latched back.

These cartridges function flawlessly in my UC2 and my SIG P238, which is very similar to the Micro.

I had no problem with any of the brands I listed. I fixed my post.

Guns are like women, they may be built the same but they all have distinctive personalities. It's your job to figure out what they like and don't like.

I've shot Hydra-Shoks and Hornady XTP in mine with no issues. Other than FMJ, I haven't tried anything else.

Not really tried a large variety, but all seems to be running fine. Is the Lehigh a high pressure load, light bullet? Something different about it?

Here is a video that shows what is so special about it. Not sure if I'm ready to give up my XTP, but it was interesting.

The You Tube video is where I got my info. I didn't know if anyone had tried it. I'll get some and report back. It's either good ammo or good marketing.
