    But we can't fully discount that it may be a mechanical issue until I shoot different ammo through them and observe the results.

    How about your CZ PCR? While form generally follows function, there are different ways to get there.

    Recoil springs (which aren't as easily tweaked in a Glock or FNS as other guns) can affect slide velocity. With the CZ, you can get a slightly lighter recoil spring from Wolff Springs, or a lighter hammer spring (which also affects slide velocity, as the slide pushes it back after each shot.)

    Glock uses the same recoil spring assembly for many of their guns across calibers when they have the same frame -- and change slide weight to control velocity. I'd be willing to bet that the springs are similar between your Glock 17 and FNS 9 (and might even be interchangeable, as they are quire similar), but the slides themselves might have different weights.

    I don't think you can compare things on such a high level and expect to make sense of it without really getting into details (and, sadly, having a better understanding of the design characteristics of the guns in question.)

    Took them to the range today and fired Federal 115gr FMJ w/o any BTF issues. I guess that Magtech and FNS don't make a good match.

    I have learned to avoid most of the cheap ammo.

    I'll plug the vendor I use, which may be a reasonable option for you. Look for Georgia Arms on the web.

    Since you seem to be in Florida, shipping costs won't be too bad. I've been using their ammo for years, and have never had a problem or a bad round. Look for "canned heat"! You can get small quantities, but you don't really start to get the good deals until you start to buy in 500 or 1000 round lots. You can get hollow point for a little more, and it tends to make much prettier holes in targets, and if you use it for self-defense, it should do the same thing to other substances. You can check on shipping costs when you're checking costs.

    Here's a link: HANDGUN - BULK QUANTITY AMMUNITION - "CANNED HEAT" - Georgia Arms

    Walt is correct, Georgia Arms makes really good stuff.
