Default HI POINT 40 S&W ammo

what ammo does well in your 40 S&W i tried tulammo lol bad mistake for me. I had multiple jams it may have been the mag lips was open to much tho this was a used hi point from a pawn shop. the ammo would jam almost strait up in the chamber. so i tore down polished feed ramp and closed the mag lips a little waitin 4 dry weather 2 go try out again. but i wanna hear your 2cents while i sittn here at home waitn 4 dry weather lol

I just tried tul ammo and had the same problem, Ive been going with federal fmj and hp classics without any problems, at least 300 rounds, tried another 50 rounds of tul and it gave me one ftf so I would stick to brass.

Keep shooting dude because that is the only REAL answer to your question..."What ammo works in my gun?" Keep shooting that sucker, and trying new and different ammo until you figure out what you and it wants. Then keep shooting some more because it's fun, and the more you shoot the better shot you'll become. Figure out a way to get out of those stupid indoor ranges. Go outside where you can set up your own challenges to expand your skills. Learn to shoot like a hunter, yes with a hand gun. Learn to push it's limits and yours. For that you gotta go outdoors.

Don't mind me I feel like ranting tonight.

I don't know where everyone gets their ammo but 40 Tula at Walmarts in my area is $12.97 per 50rd box and this equals $25.94 per 100rds.
The 100rd Federal bulk pack is $25.96. If your Wally has it you can shoot the Federal brass case for only 2 cents per hundred more.

I agree with kalboy, we get the 100packs of federal for under $25 at our walmart here in oregon and 9mm 100packs for $19 and some change. If any of you order online check out tacticalammunition.com and if you live near portland you can will call and save a few bucks.

Remington UMC 180gr JHP runs in the $35 ( per 100rds) range at our local Wallys. Runs good in every gun I've tried it it.
