I bought a box of them at Cabela's in southern Louisiana. They have a wide cavity. Are they reliable?

Which ones, the Fiocchi Extrema with nickel cases and Hornady XTP bullets? If so, they've worked well in my Glock. They choked my sister's Beretta Cougar.

Only you, using your gun, can determine that.

Personally, I don't use a round for self-defense in a semi-auto until I have put 200 troule free rounds down range.

Sistema1927. Not sure I could have said it better. After 100 I feel good, 200 makes me not worry about it until proven otherwise.

What did you have to give for them?

I can't put 100 through. I just have this box. Shooting 30 without a problem is good enough for me I guess. I was planning on one magazine, actually. It's a 50-box. $21.99 I think. Reliable ignitionwise I was thinking, was my question. I don't like the idea of +p for reasons of excessive wear. The cavity looks interestingly wide, unlike golden saber. Yes, it's a hornady bullet in a nickel cartridge. It seems a tad weak at 310 tf/lbs. 375 would have been nicer.

I will assume you are talking about 9mm para. since you didn't bother to tell us what caliber you are talking about.

147gr. JHP is a long bullet for 9mm and may cause feeding issues for some guns, especially if it has a wide-mouth opening. As long as it feeds fine in your gun, then you're probably fine.

(personally, I wouldn't trust any SD ammo unless I have put hundreds of round thru my SD gun just to make sure I don't get any surprises.)
