Finding a brand / load of SD ammo with a feed ramp friendly ogive can resolve your problems in the majority of instances w/o reaching for the tools---at least that's been my experience. For instance, CorBon PowRball has a wide cavity in which rests a ball of some type of polymer (maybe Teflon). The ball is smooth and slippery, and gives the round an ogive that will feed in the most finicky of semi-autos. It also prevents plugging of the cavity when passing through heavy clothing, and aids in reliable expansion upon impact. CorBon makes quality ammo, which --for me at least--has been problem free through the years. Golden Saber has also always functioned well. Stay away from the very impressive looking "flying ashtray" designs.....
