I could use a hotter round for a while. That will certainly speed up the break in period. Then I can go back to the cheap stuff later and see what happens.
I'm kind of in agreement that the ammo isn't quite hot enough. You can also leave the slide locked back a couple of nights at a time to help loosen up the spring. Maybe go with some blazer brass 124gr, that's fairly cheap to get if you shop around online.
Good luck :)

locking back the slide won't do anything even if it was locked back for 20 yrs. Compressing a spring does not cause a spring to loosen. Only cycling a spring will do that. That's why you can leave magazines fully loaded for years (rust free) and they will function just fine. Compression causing a spring to lose its "spring" is a myth.
You can believe what you want to, it's a free country.
But in my experience, my new guns rack the slides easier (and some of them have been pretty damned stiff) after a couple of nights of being locked open, rinse and repeat, before their round counts got into the break-in periods.
