New to forum

Hello all!
Iím Mick, and new to the forum. Hoping to pick some brains on what brand of target ammo doesnít stove pipe in my new Eclipse Custom II. S&B, and Remington FMJís are no goes for me. Jacketed bullets are no problem. All hangs up happen going into battery. Problem occurs with both Kimber and Wilson Combat magazine, although the Kimber seems to have the same problem with othe ammo brands that have truncated bullet shapes.
Thanks. Any help is much appreciated!

Welcome from the Mountain State. I don't have too many ammo related issues with my 9mm (three Sigs, a Kimber T-2 and a Colt 1911 Competition Model). But I did just buy a case of Sig Sauer Elite 115 FMJ. It runs clean, it's accurate and I've never had an issue. Not the cheapest but if you shop around on the net you can find deals. I've had good luck with Federal Champion too.
