    I recently loaded 124g Berry HP 9MM bullets on mixed brass with aa#7. I used a cartridge gauge to check dimensions and I actually shot at least 50 rounds thru several Glocks (g34,g19,g26) with no problems. The oal was 1.110 which is well with oal limit of 1.169. In the s9 barrel the round would not chamber.
    Does anyone have any idea what the chamber cut of the s9 is like?

    It almost seems like my chamber is under cut or short in the length. The berry bullet taper might be part of the problem but I suspect the S9 since the rounds work in my Glocks.

    Anyone with a similar experience?

    Other HP bullet that FTF?

    -------- My M9 has a tighter chamber that my Sig 228 also my Glock 19 & 34. I have had failed to chamber bullets in my M9 that would feed perfect in the Glock and Sig. I might also add the M9 shoots circles around either of my other 9's including the Glock 34 Tac. So to have a good shooting 9 you must give up some other things. I don't think the M9 - S9 - or M40 were ever designed to be military wepons like the Glock or Sig and are built a lot tighter that the others. It only makes for a better shooting pistol.
