    Default HK P30SK and Keystone Munitions 147gr 9mm: warning

    Hi, P30sk owners,
    I recently purchased some Keystone Munitions ammo in 147gr and they shot amazing in our P30L. Not a single issue. Then I tried to fire them from my P30sk. Immediately the gun was not going into battery and it was difficult to extract the stuck rounds. I then tried it on my son's P30sk. Same issue.

    Both guns are stock light LEM P30sk. Mine has a lightened TRS but that's it.

    Just wanted to warn you in case you were considering KM ammo to be careful. Like I said, in another HK it amazing ammo.

    Limp wristing caused by shorter grip length?

    Did you feed the SK’s from the same box/lot?
    P L/SK should have the same chamber. On/slide-open or off gun, drop a round in the barrel/chamber and check if they headspace the same.

    Were these rounds new or remanufactured by Keystone?

    I'm not sure. For the cost and the way the rounds look, my assumption is that they're new rounds but I don't know for certain.

    Don't think so, shot other 147 gr without issue.

    Sounds like they're remans per their website. Remans can be a wild card. I once used remans from Freedom Munitions (FM), and experienced low to high frequency FTFs and FTEs per their .357sig cartridges. FM owned up to their product, and sent me free replacements, but still I had the same problems with those. Thankfully, no harm to my HKs. My advise: avoid remans if you can.

    Some short barrels guns don't like the 147 grs. the P-7 is one of them also, but everything gets blamed on "limp wristing" these days, and thanks for the heads up.

    Thank you, great info! I had looked prior to purchase and didn't realize they were remans.
