Interarms PPK/S 7,65

Took my Interarms PPK/S to the range today to put it thru it's paces with 100 rounds of Dynamit Noble (RWS) 73gr ammo. It's rather spunky ammo compared to the 50 rounds of WWB I first put thru it. It also has a round nose compared to the flat nose of the WWB. One time in 100 rounds I had a FTF. I came home and polished the feed ramp and ordered a new recoil spring as I have no idea how many rounds are on this spring.

Anyways, should I stick to bullets with flat noses or do you thing a polished feed ramp and new spring will help prevent FTFs in the future?

Is it going to be a carry gun for you?

Not really. More of a BUG if anything.

In that case, I'd just stick with full metal jacket ammo.

That's what I carry in my P3AT.

In anything less than a 9x19, I would always carry FMJs as hollow points in lesser calibers will not penetrate deep enough regularly to be lethal.

I guess it's because the barrel is so short that I was concerned bullet expansion anyway.

Also, my P3AT never had an issue feeding FMJ.

After shooting another 50 rounds thru this pistol with no malfunctions, I'm loving it! It's overweight and underpowered but oh so much fun to shoot!

I would agree. My .380 PPK (mid 1980s vintage) is very picky and likes WWB the best. Tula was the worst. I do occasionally carry the PPK, but only with WWB. Now that i have a G42, i think the PPK will be part of my JamesBond memorabilia display.

In both .380 and .32, there is reputedly not enough power to both penetrate and expand. I use Gold Dot .380s in my LCP as they have a great rep for penetrating and expanding just a bit.

My Walther .32 has relentlessly fed everything I've fed it, including reloads. It's a great combination, pleasant to shoot and accurate.
