    I have a new bersa, I went shooting the other day and my gun was miss feeding the billets into the chamber. The bullets seem to be getting hung up on the ramp to the chamber. Any ideas on how to stop this?

    What gun do you have? What ammo do you have? Are you an experienced shooter?

    I have a .380 thunder. I shot two zombie rounds, just to see if it could shot them. And I shot 50 brass rounds. Yes I'm experienced

    I'm glad you are experienced, we can eliminate limp wristing then. What I am getting at is the specific rounds themselves. For example, my 380cc doesn't handle federal white box fmj rounds. I now run PMC rounds at the range. I'm not sure why, the Federal is 95 grain and the PMC is 90. I don't know if that is the issue or what. Mine seems to handle all the hollow points that I've run through it.

    I used blazer brass 95 grain. I'm very new with the Bersa guns.

    I also have the BT380. Was told at time of purchase NOT to use Tulammo for break in. I went with 6 boxes Winchester Law Enforcement. FTF issues with the Winchester. I broke in with the Tulammo and it all fed and fired very well. Now after break in, the Tulammo seems to feed a bid funny so I loaded a magazine with the Winchester LE and it works like a champ. Both are FMJ. It is a shame that the gun Manufacturers do not sell a break in ammo specific to the weapons they make. But then I suppose that would be too easy.
