I have 2, a CPX-1 TT & a CPX-2 B, never had any trouble with either on no matter what I put through it, including my own cast, plated, or coated reloads.

I haven't found any ammo that just won't cycle in my CPX.

I've used this ammo over the last few years - all has performed well in my CPX.
Federal American Eagle 124 Grain FMJ
Federal Champion 115 Grain FMJ
Federal Premium 135 Grain HYDRA-SHOK JHP
Hornady Critical Defense 115 Grain FTX
Magtech 115 Grain FMJ
Magtech Guardian Gold 124 Grain JHP
Remington UMC 115 Grain JHP
Remington UMC 115 Grain FMJ
RWS Sport Line 124 Grain FMJ
TulAmmo BrassMAXX 115 Grain FMJ
WWB 115 Grain FMJ
WWB 147 Grain JHP

I did try a box of steel case ammo just to see if it would function in my CPX. It gave no malfunctions for the 50 round box. I did't like the way it felt to shoot but have nothing objective to base that on - just the "feel" when shooting it. It was TulAmmo 115 Grain FMJ.

Blazer Brass has FTE on every other round. No problems with any other. 115g used in my CPX 2TT?

All ammo, even some steel cased, has ran fine in my CPX-2 TT. But, there is always a "but", mine does not like any sort of 147 grain ammo at all. Feeding issues galore...round is too long I guess. :roll:

Perfecta FMJ 115 gn failure to load

Postby chuckm51 » Tue Mar 15, 2016 7:46 pm

I have owned my CPX2 for 2 months or so. Shot 100 rds of perfecta fmj 115 so far. had multiple failures to load, when the slide failed to strip off a round from the magazine. Does anyone have info on best compromise. do jhp rounds cycle ok?

All the JHP I've tried have functioned / cycle just fine, as has the new Polycase ammo.

You might try polishing your feed ramp.

And make sure the magazine springs are installed properly. The highest point of the spring goes forward, under the nose of the bullet.
