I've had the FNP 9mm for several years and just yesterday purchased the FNX 45. Both nice shooting guns. The 45 worked great with the Remington fmj 230 grain balls. After about 70 rounds i tried some hollow points that my dad reloaded and shots out of his Ruger 1911. Virtually no recoil, but every shot the spent round did not clear the ejection port. Had to rack the slide each time and they just drop right out. I was not surprised though after reading other posts about similar problems due to a strong spring. Looking forward to getting it broken in and trying them again.
