I have a 226 Extreme and she eats everything I ever fed her tula ,wolf,w whitebox and various no name brands reloads hollowpoints of just about every variation.Question is .Will the 220 be the same as my 226 or will there be ammo that I want to stay away from? If so what will work best?

I have both at 220 & 226 and have never had a problem with any ammo. All my Sig's work regardless of the ammo used.

Shoot whatever you want through it. Just make sure you know what it is and who loaded it. No garage sale reloads from 1979 or anything. Factory ammo. And shoot it a lot. Mine really smoothed out around 800 rounds.

I am new to firearms, I bought my P220 Extreme on Nov 7th. It is the first handgun I have ever owned. In fact it's the first firearm I have ever owned.

So what do you mean by smoothed out? I only have about 400 rounds through it so far, and I am getting 4 inch groups of 8 at 25 yards now. But with ammo so expensive and hard to find after December I have had to not shoot nearly as much as I wanted to.

You started with a winner of a firearm! Idk about dude, but when my pistols "smooth out" after breaking in, trigger is smoother (as is the action), springs are broken in for smoother function, etc. every firearm has a break in period. In the face of these horrid ammo prices, get some snap caps. The more times you actuate the trigger, the smoother it gets.

Snap caps was one of the first things I bought. I wanted to practice drawing, aiming and firing without putting holes in my wall. Lol
