    I have a Glock 22. I have NEVER had a malfunction. Then, I ran two boxes of Lawman training ammo in .40 cal 165gr. I had 4 malfunctions.

    Stovepipes
    Failure to lock slide back

    Anyone else had problems in their Glock .40 cal with this ammo?

    Not in .40, but I had a box of .45 ACP once that had about five rounds that were so set back that I tossed them- and measured the rest. That's the only box I ever had problems with though.

    I've fired literally thousands of rounds of Lawman without a problem.

    Never a problem with Lawman...I wish I could find it...My internet source is always dried up for major calibers...

    I don't shoot .40s but my G26 would hang the first 147 TMC Lawman out of the mag on the feed ramp - only ammo that's ever happened with - it'd feed the rest of the mag during firing without a hitch but that first round had to be spoon fed - reckon it just didn't like the nose profile...So, I just don't use'em anymore.....but your G22 failing to lock the slide and stovepiping sounds like either the Lawman is too weak or you've installed too strong of a recoil spring or you might try giving it a good cleaning to include the mags and extractor (check for chips) if it's got a good many rds thru it, then put a little oil in all the right places...I've seen that set some to runnin' right again more than once...;)
