CZ 75B. Purchased July 2002.

100 - Olympic 124gr. FMJ
100 - Winchester "100 Round Value Pack" 115gr. FMJ USA9MMVP
100 - Fiocchi 123gr. FMJ, lot CIP027 4104084-3180
 50 - Federal Premium Hydra-Shok 124gr. JHP P9HS1G, lot 431 677 H270
 50 - Speer Lawman 124gr. FMJ 53616, lot E29H3
 50 - Speer Gold Dot +P 124gr. GDHP 53617, lot F25F21 (gold box of 50)

total:     450 rounds.


A handful of failures-to-feed due to mag follower or spring binding. The stock mag springs are not impressive, so I think Wolff springs are indicated. But it could be the followers, or it could be because I was using California 10-round abortion mags.

Either way, just a handful of problems and they were easy to clear.

Accuracy is good, recoil a pleasure after shooting 400 rounds of .40 S&W last trip to the range.

I'm starting to learn towards 9mm and .45 ACP for all my needs.

Maybe I should off the fortys?

I vote yes. Few of us are pruffessunal enuff for a .40 anyway.

I must be unprofessional, because after 400 rounds of fortay and cleaning two guns, my left thumb seized up like a claw hook.
