CAN ANYONE TELL ME WHY HOLLOW POINTS ARE REQUIRED, IN THIS CASE, WINCHESTER .32ACP 60 GR SILVERTIPS, REQUIRED WITH THE SEECAMP?IS THIS A SAFETY ISSUE? I MEAN WILL THIS GUN BLOW UP IF I TRIED FMJ'S? JUST CURIOUS BECAUSE A SHOP HAS ONE FOR SALE AND OWNER SAYS SILVERTIPS ONLY BUT CAN'T TELL ME WHY?THAT'S A VERY EXPENSIVE AMMO FOR PRACTICING WITH. THANKS, GD

    The manufacturer recommends the use of Silvertips only. Not a pressure issue, a cartridge length issue for reliability.

    IF I FIND A TYPE OF "CHEAPER" FMJ THAT CAN CAN FEED PROPERLY, CAN IT BE USED? I WON'T PLINK ALL DAY WITH IT, BUT SINCE I PLAN ON CARRYING IT, I WANT TO PRACTICE WITH A FEW HUNDRED ROUNDS BEFORE I GET USED TO IT, AND STILL KEEP PRACTICING AFTER THAT. I KNOW THE MFR RECOMMENDS HP'S, BUT ALSO STATES THAT USING FMJ WILL VOID WARRANTY?? I WONDER WHAT THEIR REAL REASON FOR THAT IS?THANKS, GD

    As Antique Dr stated, Overall Length is the issue. The FMJ is typically longer than HP and will rub and wear the the feed ramp and chamber and possibly mag. in different areas than HP. The Seecamp was designed "specifically" for silvertips. Many man. make HP rounds that are only marginally more expensive than their FMJ and would be good for practice. When buying, I would measure a silvertip or take 1 with me to the store and do some side by side comparisons.

    THANKS GUYS,THE GUN AND PRICE WAS REALLY NICE PLUS I HEARD THAT THERE ARE INDEED OTHER HP'S, LIKE THE FIOCCHI, THAT WORK WELL IN THEM THAT'S HALF THE PRICE OF SILVERTIPS, OR LIKE ONESHY SAID, SLIGHTLY MORE THAN FMJ'S. STILL CAN'T BEAT THE P32'S, THEY EAT ANYTHING, HOWEVER, I AM BEING LIKE MOST GUN ADDICTS HERE....JUST GOTTA HAVE EVERYTHING!!!!STILL TRYING TO BREAK THE ADDICTION, BUT FEVERS STILL HIGH, SO I'LL KEEP TAKING MY MEDICATION, ONE GUN AT A TIME, ONCE EVERY TWO MONTHS, OR AS MUCH AS THE ATF CAN ALLOW.
