5/21 100% :-)

Decided to give my Micro a go again today. I'd cleaned and lubed her last week after shooting but put a drop of the Breakthrough oil on each frame rail before I left. I had some ammo come in this week from Sportsman's Guide, I've never ordered from them before, really good selection, prices seemed about as good as it gets and shipping was free :-) Package came double boxed too which was nice. Part of the order was some Geco 95gr FMJ that I wanted to try, I've never shot it before.
Started out with 50 Fiocchi 95gr FMJ using the 6 round mags. These were shot center mass with perfect function. Up next 50 of the Geco to the head using the 6 rounders, and again perfect function. I did notice a bit of muzzle flash with the Geco not too bad though. It wasn't quite Fiocchi/HPR clean but much better than some other stuff I've tried. Another good day with the little Micro :-)
...target was at 25'

Great range report Mark, I don't own a micro but I believe that just like their big brothers they need to be broken in.
