Issues with P10C and Federal HST 124 Grain?
« on: July 31, 2020, 04:19:25 AM »
Hello all,

Recently shot a rental P10C and tested my go to self defense ammo Federal HST 124, which is often considered one of, if not the best for SD. That said, I had consistent jams with that particular ammo in the P10 with two different mags. A little recent research and I came across the same Issue with this particular ammo and the P10.

Does anyone on here have the same experiences? I really like the gun but this is major show stopper for me since that ammo is what I widely prefer and use in my others.

Thanks in advance!

I plan to put a box of Fed HST through my P10C at some point in the next few days. I'll report back...

Is this a newer production P10C? My P10S has no issues with 124gr HST. Maybe the rental wasn't clean. I don't trust rentals much. They see some abuse.

It seems to fit the chamber of my ambi-P10c just fine. Haven't fired any to test, but it plunks and spins just fine.

I've shot about a dozen boxes through my first gen p10c. 100% reliable so far.

I’ve shot a good amount of Fed 124 HST through my P10C zero issues.

Zero issues in general.

Just ran a box of HST 124 through my P-10C. This wasn't a fresh box either - this was a box of carrying ammo I cracked back in Jan, and who knows how many times those rounds have been re-chambered at this point. Didn't have a single issue.

The best thing to do is buy your own gun and test it. That may sound aloof, disconnected, uppity, uncaring, or whatever, but I assure you it's not intended that way. You must consider that it was a "range gun". As such, the mags may have been swapped with another CZ. It could have an extraordinary round count, or next to zero. The last renter may have opted to shoot lead. We know CZ is quick to make changes, and so it could be a "generational thing" where the gun you shot is 1 or 2 generations behind what you would be getting today. And we can definitely be sure it doesn't have a regular cleaning schedule.

Bottom line: Too many variables to conclude anything definitive.

Here's what a reasonable person might do. Wait until Black Friday (which will be well after the re-election). You'll be able to get the CZ P10 model of your choice at a more reasonable price. And your choice of P10 model might actually change between now and then. Also, realize that while HST might be your "favorite" ammo (as it is mine), it is not the only truly great ammo available to you. In other words, realize that it's not just ammo Number 1 that takes down bad guys. Police departments all over the US have been dropping bad guys equally well with ammo numbers 2, 3, 4 and 5 for years.

Hope this helps.
