i just recently got to go shoot my fn for the first time the other day and i had something happen to me and i wondered if any one else has had it happen to them or is it something that rarely hapens? i was shooting the white box ammo and i had about one in five rounds jam up in the gun and about a third of the rounds never fire at all. in trying to pin point the problem i switched mag to the blue tip and never had a jam or a miss fire. Did i get a bad box is that the nature of the round?

I haven't had a problem with mine - I can shoot 195 and 197 - however, I have seen at least 1 other person report something similar... The claim was that 197 worked great but there was feeding issues with 195 ammo..

I would try another box. If U still have issues, contact FN...

Did U clean the gun and reoil before your first trip?

There were some bad lot #s of SS195.
I can't recall off the top of my head which lot# nor the range of lots.
I would call FN and tell them the lot # on the front of the white box.
They might replace your bad box with a new production box.
