Bought some Federal, American Eagle 9mm last night and didn't notice it was a box of flat heads till I got home. Any one use this before and have any problem with it loading? It's shaped like a hollow point but without the indent. What's the purpose?

Nearly all .40 is that way too. Sort of intended as a better feeding hollow point substitute...I think?

its a way to maximize bullet weight in 40 cal while still provding decent feeding. the ogive is wider and creates the flat point. almost all 40 cal FMJ is like that,

I have a box of those too. Never shot any yet.

I shoot flat-pointed reloads through my carbine all the time, no problems at all. Seems to like them, in fact.
Are these cast lead bullets or FMJ ones?

I've got Fiocchi brand 123gr truncated cone ammo that I've fed through my 995. (They mark it as being "123gr FMJ truncated cone (combat)" for whatever that means.)

No problems feeding at all.

I have used American Eagle 9mm ammo quite a few times and have never had any problems what so ever. Most .40 cal seem to be that way. Today, I put two hundred rounds of Federal Champion ammo with no FTF FTE. Hope that helps bud.
