I had this issue last night. The round hung up on the feed ramp. I was using 170 FMJ fiocci in 40. It happened on 3 different occasions. I have never had another issue before last night. I ejected the hung round and continued to fire. The gun was cleaned recently. Lubed properly. Any ideas.

I have had some issues with the Fiocchi FMJTC (Full Metal Jacket Truncated Cone) bullets not feeding into the chamber with 100% reliability so I returned them. Some bullet designs and pistol designs are not compatible (100% reliable) due to design tradeoffs for pistols and/or bullets so testing is needed and normal. More information is needed and pictures would help. A good example is a Glock 40 S&W as the chamber is larger and is not fully supported but it will feed more reliably (different bullet designs and field use). Note: The bullets may be defective (COAL is too long) but this is not likely.
