My M&P40 does not like this brand of ammo. The bullets do not feed into the chamber consistently.
Winchester white box ammo feeds perfectly. Anyone else have this problem?

You know there no guarantee that any one pistol will like a brand of anno or bullet design or weight. Just fact life. Some get picky some shot anything. You could also find with a change to bullet weight it feeds the brand fine. If your lik the current batch of wwb great . Learn to pay attention to each round as you load it. Very high production rates today tends to cause more problem lots od ammo . WWB and fed cheap ammo probably has the most QC issues of any. Pull your barrel out and see if the ammo falls cleanly into the chamber and as deep as another brand. Does it have a good crimp?? See if a buddys pistol will run a few rounds of it. Last is the feed ramp clean , polished nicely. Then if still issues call fiocchi usa and ask about a swap of lots numbers or bullet weights.

I've used fiochi in 22lr, .223, and not had problems. Sometimes guns just don't like some brands or bullet weight n shape

I've never had an issue but my buddy has a full size m&p 40 and the shield 40 and the both jam with that ammo

I own M&P .40 went to the range and shot 100rd of that stuff. I had no problem at all the gun was brand new. What lube do you use? I use FROG LUBE and I luv it u should try using FROG LUBE that might help.

I had the same problem with mine and it was brand new at the time. I have shot several other kinds of ammo through it with no problem. Apparently those guns don't like Fiocchi for some reason.

Fiocchi fmj ammo has its fair share of issues with feeding but so do some other cheap fmj ammos. Its allways trial and error .
