What chunk missing?I would be sending that back and not accept a "thats normal" response. Looks like a chunk missing out of it where it contacts the slide. Peening a the lugs could result in accuracy issues.
I've only used American Eagle (Federal) 115 grain full metal jacket. It is the cheapest I can find local at around $12 a box.This is my primary CCW, granted I could probably borrow the .380 from the old man right now, so two weeks is a long time. Plus, structurally, it's not compromising the chamber so it's more of a cosmetic issue than anything. I've put more rounds through this gun in two weeks that some have in their entire life, so I'm still very happy with the gun overall.
5437, nice to know I'm not crazy in torturing this gun, definitely interested in you not having any excessive wear. What ammo are you using by chance, it could be a factor because the 115 gr Winchester FMJ I'm shooting may not be hot enough or too hot of loads, not 100% sure if they are +P, +P+, or what because I can't get too much info on them.
My carry load is Winchester 115 gr JHP right now, but looking into the Guard Dog HP for carry loads.
