100 more rounds of 115gr Winchester through the PPX means 300 rounds. I managed to induce the failure-to-lock-back by accident once in the first magazine, and deliberately again on the second. I was experimenting with trying to get my thumbs further forward on the frame, and thereby interfering with the movement of the slide stop lever. I'm not doing that anymore. No more malfunctions of that nature were experienced.
As you can tell by the head box, at speed I'm having a hard time remembering that (for me, at least) this thing shoots 115gr ball to just over the top of the front sight post at... well, that claims to be 7 yards, but I haven't measured. It sure looks longer. I'm used to the POI being right behind the center of the front dot.
Given that I was deliberately trying to up my speed with the longer quasi-DA trigger on the 8" circle, I'm not terrifically uncomfortable with that outcome. Between the 8" circle and the 3x5" is 90 rounds. The remaining ten were put into the berm to the right of the target just to get a feel for how absolutely quickly I could work the trigger. The cell phone app I was trying to use for a timer blows goats. I need to break down and get a real one.
The shots on the small dots were with the EAA Pavona. That was another 50 rounds of mixed WWB and Blazer Brass in two 5- and four 10shot strings. It seems to shoot pretty okay.
