Did you clean the gun thoroughly before trying to load it? I know that sounds funny, but some of the mfgs. tell you to clean the gun before you use it the first time. Also, check the bottom of the brass for it's stamping and caliber information. It's entirely possible that ammo could wind up in the wrong box even from the mfg. When I first bought my Taurus .38 Super, I bought 2 boxes of Remington ammo. Not one shell would chamber properly, and if it manged to get into the chamber, I could not extract it without extreme measures. I sent it back to Remington and they told me it was up to specs....but they did credit me for the ammo, much to their "credit". Since then I have shot any ammo I could find, except Remington and never had the problem again. I also reload and have never had the problem. The LGS basically said that "some guns don't like some ammo". I guess they were right, and perhaps you have come across the same issue.

Take it apart..clean the barrel with some Hoppes 9 , and a wire brush. As others have already said, im sure there is some kind of factory goo in there to keep it from rusting. Every new gun should be taken apart, inspected / cleaned / lubed / .

Not every chamber is cut correctly. Remove the barrel and see if the round will fit the chamber. Then try a standard 9MM Hard Ball round if your CD loads do not fit. Have you miked the the CD loads?

Well guys problem solved. Checked the owners manual. They stress it is clean and ready to shoot out of the bag. But when i took the gun and ammo to my LGS and the round that I loaded last had a slight malfunction. A tiny ring around the end of the hollow point which was preventing the round from chambering. After removing that round everything fed like it should. The owner checked and gave me the rest of the ammo and also a box of target for my time.

I like it when we receive feedback when a problem gets solved.

Nothing dumb here. Especially in a new pistol, a pucker nosed HP needs a full force kick in the butt to get up the ramp.

Edit. Whoops too late. Overlooked the last posts.

Nice to see a gun store that is professional. Discoverd your problem, corrected and gave you some ammo to boot? All on a gun you bought elsewhere? They sound like keepers
