First round jams

2219 Views 15 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  jehzsa
I was out on the range first time today with my P5C. Using federal 115 gr. Frequent jams when chambering first rounds. Am I not seating the last bullet properly in the magazine?
Anyone have any comments or bullet suggestions.

I'm manually loading. Not quite sure what you mean by slide stop. Appreciate your comments.
Thanks for the definitions. I was manual loading. My next thought was to get a few different types of ammo and also using the suggestion of the other gentleman, seating the bullets in the magazine with a hand tap.

Thanks again for your comments. Love the gun but got to get beyond this problem.
Purchased new May 2001, but I just purchased it from first owner unfired.
I believe I'm letting the slide go on ot's own but next time I'm out, I'll pay attention. Where can I get a recoil spring? Based on all the write-ups I purchased it because of reliability. I'm a little frustrated until I can get out again with better results. I appreciare everyone's input.
Thanks, I'll give it a try and report back.
