Jimenez .380 and 9mm "Brands of Ammo" recommendations

Postby adam01364 » Fri Mar 18, 2016 10:27 pm

While I didn’t go to Vegas the week of 4/6 with plans to visit Jimenez, I did just happen to receive some warranty replacement parts for my J.A. Nine. Enclosed with my parts was a new J.A. Nine Instruction Manual, a separate paper with Jimenez Arms’ new address and contact info, and a photocopied pages showing “Brands of Ammo” recommendations for the J.A.380 and 9mm. Lest anyone here think I was having a daydream, enclosed are pics for your reading (and shooting) pleasure:

I hate to be the one to say it but I could've made that in Word and had it out looking 100x more professional in less than ten minutes.

The penmanship isn't bad though.

^^This^^
I couldn't agree more. At the very least, it could have been written out on Jimenez letterhead!

Interesting good old WWB isn't on there, but then again, we already know why. ;)

Hmm, sounds like they got fed up with complaints arising from "incorrect" ammo and couldn't wait to start correcting people about it.

Hi,

I had discussed this Paul this past friday and he was very surprised to hear this. I have sent Paul the pictures so he can investigate the matter, If he shares with me any information I will share. This is by no means acceptable and he agreed.

That's really cool handwriting, but I wish they could spell better. Its golden Sabre. I know, nitpicky stuff, but it matters to me.

Its less than professional looking but it works.

As far as brands of ammo go I will try everything in a new gun to see what works. I will follow the manufacturers warning not to use +p or +p+ but as far as grains or casing hp or fmj anything goes. Here is an example: A friend and I bought 2 Taurus p111 g2's on black friday sale. Mines a slob and will eat anything. Steel, aluminum, brass in 115, 124 and 147. His does not like 147 and aluminum. It's all about the tolerances. Guns come off the assembly line differently. Some tight. Some loose. The manufacturers recommendation are not always spot on. People put down wwb. I have good luck with it in many firearms. Guns can be as different as individuals. Just my opinion based on my experiences.

If nothing else, it answers the question about what ammo to use in the test I plan. :)

the problem with steel and aluminum cases ammo is that its more durable that the actual material used in the firearm. i could see extractors and breech faces getting,pretty jacked up fast. Then again the gun,will probably crack apart first with the JA380 and JAnine.

Best recommendations I can give for these two models is marshmellows. maybe a cheesepuff for the JA nine. marshmellows will probably crack the frame.
