I had the usual problems, ie FTF, FTE, stove pipes, etc.

I went to the range today and here are the results.

Cleaned and lubed according to Kahr's instructions.

Fired 2, 6 round mags of Cor-Bon DPX...no problems.
Fired 2, 6 round mags of Federal 90 g Hydro Shock JHP...several FTFeed, and one FTFire
Fired 1 6 round mag of Fiochhi 90 g JHP...Could not chamber round....finally after doing it manually, FTFeed next round. In fact, it became very diffcult to feed round into chamber.
Went back to Federal 90 g Hydro Shock JHP.and several FTFeed and FTFire.
Finally back to Cor-Bon DPX...no problems.
Also tried out my new Crimson Trace Laser...Absolutely love it.

I guess I'll have to continue to break it in and see what happens.
It is definitely working better than before.

I have had problems with Fiocchi in one of my p380's - the other one shoots it fine - go figure. Mine will shoot most of the standard brand fmj (rem. fed, win) no problem once they were broken in. The P380's like powerful ammon and I think that's why CorBon works - its hot stuff. When the springs relax and the metal smooths out it gets better, but 200 rounds is a little soon to be worn in in my experience.

I also had a crimson trace - but didn't like it on the p380. Maybe its just me.

Hi Bob. If you have not seen this before, you might want to check out this link. http://mousegunaddict.blogspot.com/2011/07/great-380-fmj-jhp-ammo-test-results.html

I found 3 brands that would not work with my P380. Everything else ran great. The common thread with those three is that they are all foreign so probably best to stick with USA made ammo.
