Check the feeding lips on your mag to see if they are 100% straight inline with each other. I've found the slightest variation may cause a feeding problem.

Which pistol did you buy?

Have you actually fired it yet? If not, sometimes on a new gun, it is difficult to replicate the cycling of ammo by merely hand-cycling.

Give us a shout after your range time.

Ditch the 10-year-old Bear ammo, buy some modern name brand FMJ ammo, and try another brand hollow points. Sometimes, the compact sized polymer guns can be finiky when it comes to ammo.

Many times, it's just a matter of finding the ammo that your pistol "likes", and sticking with it.

Yeah, gettin grid of the old is hard sometimes. I would not trust it to work and I'd not worry if the gun malfunctions with it. Call it 'malfuction practice'. Start with new ball ammo and severl brands to find what works well in your gun. I've learned that the more you shoot it the more tolerant it becomes of other ammo. After about 500 rounds or so it might just take anything you can stuff into it.
(My first surprise was hollow-point in a 1911.) My advisors say stick to American ammo.

Failure to feed? Hmm. I'd take apart the mags and clean and shine them up. That spring must shove up hard enough to get the last round in the way of the slide. And the barrel ramp can't drag on the nose of the round. All my stuff is polished, thankfully.

The more I get to shoot the more fun I'm having. My only limit is the cost of ammo.

+1 on the ditch the old ammo. I would also add to go through and do a thorough cleaning as the assembly glue... er lube they use gums up everything. I had to perform a full tear down of my PT1911 after 3 rounds of the first 5 clips (35 rounds) actually fired first time.

My PT145 likes any kind of ball ammo. I've shot about 700 rounds through it, cleaned & lubed mags and everything else, but it will not feed Magtech or Gold Dot hollow points. I no longer use it for concealed carry.
