||*This is a continuation of my initial tests/review from back in March 2009.
I finally found a chance to take my 30-round 'tan' mag back out to the range
for a full test session. (see my previous post...)
I loaded it up with some more of the Federal 'Value Pack' copper-coated
hollow points I had luck with on my previous outing.
These are high-velocity 36 grain bullets rated at around 1260 FPS. I shot
over 100 rounds of the stuff through my mag (in 25-round loads, as per my
Result: NOT ONE SINGLE JAM! I was VERY pleased with the performance of the
ammo/mag combo. Based upon my findings both previously and during this second
day at the range, I can wholly recommend these 30-round magazines to anyone
who is interested. Just be sure to use ammunition with NO waxy coating as it
will foul the follower/spring.
And to avoid feed malfunctions, load a maximum of 25 rounds. This will help
extend the life span of your springs too...
