Will really crappy ammo cause stovepiping and ftf every other shot? I have a Glock 34 and never had a problem with ftf until recently. Or do you think it might be some other problem with the gun.

Sounds like someone is trying to use Blazer.

It is some factory reloads I picked up at the gunshow. It turns out it has a very inconsistent powder load. Most of them aren't strong enough to eject the case properly.



No, I am not limp wristing.

Yes it will,especially with the 34,which has a longer slide and bbl,underpowered ammo would cause problems.Give it a good cleaning,use some factory ammo and it should work ok.

My old G36 would feed everything but PMC.

Who in their right mind buys gunshow reloads? Haven't there been enough warnings about that floating around on the internet? The last thing you want is one of those gunshow people loading a volitile substance, then detonating it in your hand.

BS, Been buying from the same guy for 10 years now. He makes the best stuff I have ever seen, I have shot literally 10s of thousands of rounds from him. Never a problem, and as good as or better then factory ammo. He inspects each and every round by hand. He just loaded my up 1000 rounds of match grade ammo for my AR, and since he shoots at Camp Perry, when he says match, he mean match.
Now, if you're talking about the crap looking junk, looks as if it went thru WW3, sold by some of these idiots that call themselves reloaders, sure, i'd stay away too. But the biggest crap I have bought lately has been PMC which is CRAP, and out of spec so far it won't even chamber.

It's a bit different with Miwall and Magtech reman ammo.Even then I'm a bit dubious of the quality of those manufacturers.

Who I'm really talking about the guy at the gunshow that sells his reloads in plastic baggies and obviously has made one too many trips to the beef jerky guy. I like my fingers too much to take chances.

A Glock should work with any ammo of moderate quality even CCI Blazer (never heard of problems with this stuff)..

Sounds like you got really shitty ammo... Had this problem in an AR with gunshow reloads...
Cases werent sized all the way

If you want to save money...invest money...in a Dillon 550...
