I have a P99 in 9. It has functioned flawlessly with several brands of ball ammo at the range. When carried, I use Speer Gold Dot JHP. The other day I put a fresh mag in with the Speer and it had problems stripping off or chambering the rounds. I tried this several times. The slide would not return completely to battery without a manual assist. Any ideas? Do I need to polish the feedramp?

Are you pulling the slide all the way back and releasing it or are you easing it down?
You need to pull and release. Do not ride the slide closed with your hand, and don't bother with the slide stop lever.
Don't polish the feedramp, owning a Dremel does not make you a gunsmith.
I'll bet you it's human error rather than a weapon malfunction.

I'd suggest trying a different brand of hollowpoint. That way you can determine whether it's you or the round.

FWIW, my .40 feeds Fed. Hydra-Shoks without problems.

Good luck.
