HPR Black Ops

Has anyone else bought and fired any of this ammo?

I had bought a couple of 200 round cases as I thought it looked like a good defense round and Cheaper Than Dirt had a good price on it.

I took out a new P225-A1 and M11-A1 these past weekend and it literally would not eject in either. It would either stove pipe or just not cycle the slide at all.

I am looking at the description now on the site and it says its "specifically engineered for maximum effectiveness in Full Size 9mm Framed weapons"....does this mean I shouldn't use it in the P228, P225 and P229....only in my P226's???

I don't know if I like having ammo that will only feed in specific guns. I see further that it says "designed for use in full frame pistols, or carbines. May not cycle properly in some compact or sub-compact models"

So....guess the fault is mine....I should learn to read fully before jacking in the credit card info.

85 Grains at 1,320 fps? I'm not at all surprised you had functioning problems.

Just another gimmick ammo.

Wasn't paying attention on this purchase at all. Oh well, the best remembered lessons are learned by mistakes.

Are you a reloader or do you know one?

If so, you could pull the bullets, toss the powder, reload the cases with your own powder and heavier bullets.

Then you could load the 85 grain bullets into .380 cases where they'll work just fine.

I haven't re-loaded in awhile, but have the equipment....used to when I had a lot more time to shoot and not much money.

I think I'll see how it works in a full frame auto, like my P226, Hi-Power, H&K, etc. first....then if it doesn't feed in those, I will probably do what you suggest.

Good way to malfunction practice at least.

Gimmick ammo needs to die forever.
