You'll have to figure out which kind YOURS likes. You can't go wrong with PowRballs though. They feed like fmj range ammo.

I have tried several different HP round and still can not get one to load correctly. I am even having trouble loading FMJ's at times. It looks like I will have to do some work on the feed ramp. The angle may to steep to load correctly.

Please err on the side of safety. Too many have tried to work on feed ramps and have not left enough to support the round sufficiently.

I was going to take it to a gunsmith, I know enough about repairs but not machining. So I will be sending it out.

Does anyone know of a good gun smith here in Az that could help me? I would also be willing to send it out if I have to.

I ended up sending my RIA back to the factory for some repairs since it would not feed anything that I tried to put through it.

They ended up redoing the feed ramp and replacing almost everything inside the pistol. Got it back today after about 4 wks. Which is not bad. They even sent me a free magazine. The only thing that sucks is that the rear site was damaged when I got it back. Looks like they dropped it, so will see what happens when I take it back. If I do not replace the sights anyways.
