Angry New Solo DC Failure to Load

Picked up my new Solo DC the other day, stripped it down and wiped it and went to the range. The dealer sold me a 50 rd box of 126gr FMJ rounds and a box of Hornady Critical Duty 135gr. Fired the entire box of FMJ with 1 failure to feed, but cannot get a single round of the Hornady to load. Gets hung up on the ramp going into the barrel. Common experience? Forgive me if this is covered ground, first day in the forum.

Try some Remington Golden Sabres. Sometimes the little plastic plug in the hollow point on the Hornady catches on the feed ramp. Golden Sabres should run fine in it.

I was told with the Micro it is a good idea to run at least 400 rounds of RN during break-in before attempting to use your preferred defense hollow points. With the frequency my Micro malfunctions that may take some time.

#1. Are you sure you caught the little spring in the groove of the slide release?
#2. Don't Jack with it, call Kimber and get a return authorization and send it back. They will fix it. Don't give up . You will love it. I promise.
Use only the recommended ammo .
