I would imagine they snag on the feed ramp. A gunsmith can fix the issue easily.

Rimlock is a problem for many .32ACP pistols & Keltec is one of them. Unlike other ACP calibers, the rim of a .32 can catch in the groove of the round below it. As the top round feeds, it drags the next round forward & the rim of that second round catches in the groove on the one below it, preventing it from being fed.

The problem is caused by the fact that HPs are shorter than FMJ & can be fixed with an adapter that goes in the mag & holds the HP rounds forward in the tube. The downside to that is that the adapter has to be removed when you want to shoot FMJ. An adapter can be made with a wire/paperclip. If I can find the video, I'll come back & post it.

Another solution is to chamber a HP & load a HP as the top round in the mag, with other rounds all being FMJ. This eliminates the rimlock problem.

Here is some info on the rimlock kits:

It is available from KelTec - Part #P32-314 - must specify if you want it for the 7 round or 10 round mag. Price was about $9 a year ago.

Here is a link to making one.

http://www.1bad69.com/keltec/flyerwire.htm

Hope this helps. If you have several mags, might install the kits in mags dedicated for carry only & have others for range time.

I believe Hogue makes a slip-on for the P32 & P3AT (P3?). I don't know about the PMR30.
