Hey all,
Glade to be here on GT, I find it a very useful site.
I got the better half a 26 a few weeks back and the other day was her
1st time out with it. ( She also has a 17 that she's had about 2 years.)
Anyway, to get to the point, she was shooting 115 FMJ's and was having
a real issue with it failing to feed and jamming up. One, two, sometimes three times a clip. Using 3 clips. She's never had that come up with her
17 at all with the same ammo. I shot it last week, about 80 rds and no problems at all. ( I clean throughly after every outing.) I then loaded the 3 clips and shot it myself with no hangups at all. Loaded the clips again and shot them left handed, just for something different, I'm a right hand shooter. I then let her shoot my 27. Again with 3 clips, each loaded with 165 grain FMJ's, and she had no issues at all. I loaded one clip for her 26 and had her shoot it. Sure enough, she had 2 fail to feeds. The only explanation I have is the "Limp Wristing" effect. Am I on the correct track?
Would a heavier bullet,(124gr.) help? What about +P ? And of course, her grip and form and etc. need to be worked on I'm sure. Any comments?

Move your load up to 124 or 147 and see if that dosent fix the issue
