Hi guys,

just got my new Pro Carry II 45ACP two tone, gun that I dreamed of for a long time and frenquntly stoped to check on my visits to Bass Pro Shops while in the US and that I finally imported to Brazil. Do you guys have any advice on ammo? I tried to hand cycle it with factory ammo from CBC/Magtech but its not feeding properly.

Welcome to the forum! I never expected to get a new member from Brazil. What's involved in firearm ownership there? I've been paying some attention to Bolsonaro over the last several years, and heard some things from him that I consider to be positive on a host of issues including private gun ownership, but I wasn't under the impression it had gotten very far. As for your issue, I'm not one of the resident experts on diagnosis, but they will probably filter in. What's it doing, jamming on the feed ramp?

Welcome to the forum from Dimondale Mi. mobr. I don't know what brands you have available in Brazil, but your gun should function with any 230 gr. FMJ ammo. Use the 230 gr. FMJ to get the gun broken in before you start truing defensive loads.

Mobr, Welcome to the site from Tennessee!

I would "LIVE" fire before worrying about hand feeding issues.

Ammo? These days any ammo you can find/afford. I agree with Chuck most any 230gr FMJ for break-in.

...welcome to the forum from north Alabama just shy of the Tennessee line...
...recommendations for a new gun:
.....disassemble and clean thoroughly
.....leave the slide wet with oil
.....load the magazine, 230 grain FMJ, and tap to seat all the rounds in the magazine
.....insert the magazine and seat it firmly
.....slingshot load the first round of each magazine during breakin...
.....clean thoroughly after each shoot during breakin...

Mais uma Bemvenida da Louisiana, I used to travel to Brazil often when I was working selling machinery for the sugar industry. I have many friends there and always enjoyed my trips there to Sao Paulo, Rio Janeiro, Recife, Maceio, also Manaus and Belem.
