Default FNX-9 Failure to feed

After research and firing I decided to puchase the FNX-9. Took it home and while cleaning it for the first time I noticed the feed ramp wasnt very smooth. I took it to the range and about 15-20 out of 100 rounds it failed to feed. I only brought 100 rounds of Remington UMC 115 grain. I am calling FNH monday. Anyone have similar issues? I dont want to shoot another 200 rounds to find its not a break-in issue. Thoughts?

I recently bought a FNS-9. First few mags or so, it was sensitive to limp-wristing (every time my wife shot a mag, she's also a lefty, not sure if that mattered). After that no issues.

I have the .40 version. Not a problem at all and I run almost anything I can get through it. Give em a call.

Limp wristing. New gun (not broken in) and the crappiest ammo available.

I've never once had an issue with Rem UMC in any gun of mine or my friends.

Limp wristing I guess could be possible, but I'd suggest it more a case of magazine spring needing breaking in.

Sent gun back for repair. Got it back. It looks like they polished the ramp and paper work says they used $100 in parts. No discription of what part. Took it out yesterday and ran three mags threw it and had zero problems.

I had to send my CZ in, about 6 weeks total. 2 weeks is pretty fast.
