Turns out the (50) Armscor are a bit longer than the (11) WWB ... viewtopic.php?f=4&t=17028&p=48248#p48248

The Perfecta brass would still be my first choice for cheap 9mm ammo, closely followed by Federal aluminum.
But that's regarding my full-size B6P. If a subcompact requires shorter ammo, Remington UMC is widely available.

Yep, I remember him saying that.
Here's his sccy video from Nov-2013 ... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vTgFs-m59RY
At the 5:10 mark, he begins talking about the sccy being ammo sensitive.
Also, notice the rear frame pin beginning to protrude from the right side.
He said he normally doesn't have any issues with the Armscor, but 3 or 4 had to be struck twice before firing.
That, and the long length, are two strikes against using it in the sccy.

In the past, hard primers were to blame in Remington ammo too, but the short UMC was the best ammo in my sccy.

Geco has some real hard primers... at least the batch that I had did.

Hickok45 experiences a few more Armscor 124gr light strikes at the 20:30 mark.

I calipered the OAL for a 2nd box of Armscor 115gr, and its a tick longer than the first box.
I want to repeat that this Armscor 9mm ammo is probably not a good choice to fire in a cpx.

Anyone ever notice the 100/200 count boxes are never exact count? Even the .45 box was over by 3 rounds with their pretty 20 round layer setup.

I've just purchased a box of Rem. 9 mm 115gr. JHP ....I have also have some of that Made in the USA Winchester USA FORGED 115 grain FMJ sold a Walmart for $29+ dollars for a box of 150. No coating on these cartridges and they are steel cased...I think the bullet is of ferrous materials too, I use them for when we have a total emergency meltdown of the USA.... And I use it in the torture testing of things I've just purchased. I wouldn't ever run these in the SCCY. Once I got it cleaned and I mean mags especially; They are nasty...I've cleaned red grease out of the two I own..... The gun seems to get stronger all the time. I'm gonna try a lot of various JHP's in it until I find what I'm lookin' for...

I normally buy the Federal Aluminum cased ammo or TulAmmo or the steel cases Winchester. My Wal Mart is pretty well stocked. Might get low when it's pretty out the everyone want to shoot.

... I'd like to see some of that 147 locally. Never seen it at Walmart. ...

The Walmart here has the WWB 147 grain JHP rounds once in a while. ...

I did finally see some 9mm 147gr JHP WWB at my local Walmart last week ... $22 for 50 ... two boxes on the shelf.

Yep ... that cheap Federal aluminum shoots well in my B6P.
