It can effect the feeding. The PPK was originally designed to feed only ball ammo, mainly because that was what they mainly had back then. There are similar issues with the 1911. You'll have "old timers" swear up and down that hollow points won't work in 1911's, and maybe that is true for the older ones, but now days I've had 1911's that eat up everything I've ever fed them.[b said:Quote[/b] (stunksinatl @ April 22 2005,5:46)]The "mouth" on the Gold Dots seems wider than the hydrashoks. I wonder if this affects feeding in the PPK.
