before I go buy a bunch of ammo ,what doies the CPX-2 dislike with a passion , so I wont waste any money (my Caracal will shoot anything I throw at it!, yes im aware of the recall , 7000 rounds later Im not turning mine in) , I want stable JHP and Ball for the first 200 rounds , not sure if its rated for +P ? doesnt matter ,I will most likely want Hornady xtp (at first anyway , critical defense always a nod)

There's a long discussion of this in the Ammunition sub forum (with apologies to the admins).

Every brand of ammo will have a dud every once in a while - happens when you manufacture millions of rounds. My philosophy is clean your firearms really really well - that includes ALL parts, not just the barrel. Throw a little oil or lube in there - don't slop it up - you aren't basting a turkey.




Yes about the only ammunition me and SCCY G-2 don't like is steel cased and aluminummmmm cased. Other than that we pretty much shoot-em up. I totally agree not to use a turkey baster when cleaning your fire arm. But I clean my SCCY G-2 to look as new as the day I received it.

When I first got my original CPX-1 I called SCCY to ask about ammo they might recommend to use and avoid. They told me they recommend against steel case ammo and Remington. They had seen issues with Remington having hard primers and not always firing on the first trigger pull. The light strike issue seems to be corrected in the Gen 2 pistols. They recommended against using steel case ammo from a potential for increased wear.

I've used many different brands of Ammunition (brass cased/rounded nose) type for range time.

However years back I purchased a couple boxes of steel cased and shot it in another make of firearm. I was concerned on the ejection of this type of ammunition. The steel cased did fire but upon examination of the spent casings they were all deformed. So I figured they must be dragging in the barrel after firing and dragging and bumping the ejection port areas also. So its just me and I decided not to purchase anymore steel cased and or poly coated ammunition.

Tula does contract out a Brass Cased Ammunition and it does work just great for target practice, along with the many Brand Names of 9mm Brass Cased Ammunition in Our SCCY G-2.

We do keep in all our Magazines at all times, Defense Ammunition. We have fired a few of these types of rounds in our SCCY G-2 just to get the recoil feel and operation of Defense Ammunition. With many New Types of Defense Ammunition being developed and becoming available to Consumers there is a choice for Defense. Our Winter Defense Ammunition is Different from our Summer Ammunition as we do not want over penetration which could possibly wound innocent bystanders.

Not being a perfect shot or for that matter just a average shot its really important to me to set my own standards for shooting and constantly improve them.

I kinda figure one of the main advantages of a double action is the ability to hit a primer again, without extra steps. Of course, they're recommending against steel cased ammo to prevent wear... on a gun that they don't recommend you shoot much. "It's not a 'range gun'." :mrgreen:

Shit, son, hearsay upon hearsay. Somebody else on this board claimed that SCCY said it's not a range gun, meaning it isn't intended to be shot much. Don't remember who or where. Doesn't really matter to me anyway, steel case 9mm isn't real common around here.

If mine lasted 5-6,000 rounds, without a trip back to SCCY for some R&R, I would be happy. :wink:

I couldn't agree more especially with these SCCY pistols. Keep the pistol clean and it will increase the odds of proper operation.
