    S&W 76, Ammo what do you find works best?

    For the S&W 76, what ammo do you find works best?

    Is Wolf Spring equivalent to OEM spring, or do they each like different ammo.

    I have a burgess SW76 and Round nose, FMJ works very reliably, 100%, with a wide variety of rounds from PPU, winchester, magtech, federal, CCI, Blazer brass, all 100% reliable. When I have tried either Hollow point or flat nose, the rounds fail to feed.

    DO NOT USE HOLLOW POINT AMMO IN A SUBGUN WHILE IN FULL AUTO MODE!!!
    It's not a matter of if but when. The odds of cycling a hollow point round and hanging up mid way down your 10" barrel and running another directly behind it are greatly against you. Regardless, if this happens, sending one or more rounds up the barrel will cause it to bulge. You will then have to cut the barrel this side of that bulge to remove and shroud and or barrel lug. Parts are scarce and barrels are becoming pricy.
    A WORD TO THE WISE.

    Hollow point definitely don’t feed as well. But the idea that they squib more often is stupid
