Gun jams every third shot. Just refuses to feed and slide stays locked back. Using remington 95 gr. now just bought a case. It's a new gun,bought it for my wife. She shot a box of other ammo before and it didn't jam. I'm ready to send it back, or should ammo be changed.

    Hello Murphy's law never buy large amount of ammo until you try one box in the gun you intend to shoot it in. [:(] same with match ammo by lot number in match gun. [:0][:(]Most small pocket pistols do not like large hollow point ammo a good gun smith might be able to polish the feed ramp on barrel but be aware this will most likely void warranty I would contact factory if it is a new gun and heed their suggestion on if to send the gun back or what ammo they suggest.

    The new walthers are made by SW and tend to be more picky on ammo. Usually a trip to a smith can fix this with some tweeking and polishing.

    Not only the new ones. I have a Walther P-5 I bought at the factory, in Germany, during Desert Storm (1991). It has never "liked" certain ammo. Reloads at the range? Forget about it. Every other one is a misfeed of some sort. Winchesters in the "white box", why they shoot like they were custom made for the gun.
