I just bought a P99 in 9mm, and I am experiencing failures to eject. What gives?

Earl's Repair Service recommends that 124gr or heavier bullets be used for the first 300 rounds or so, so that the recoil spring has a chance to break in. If you are using 115gr bullets during the first 300 rounds or so, don't let a couple failures to extract (FTEs) bother you, or otherwise cast a negative image on this fine pistol. Most people don't experience any failures with their 9mm P99s, even when using 115gr bullets during the first 300 rounds.
