I bought a lot of Silver Bear 7.62x39mm 123gr HP (500 rds) and was going to use it in my Mini 30 Tactical I just picked up.

Went to the range and I get a fail to fed with every magazine (all Ruger Factory).

The Hollow point ammo seems to be the issue. Anyway to get the hollow point ammo to work?

The hollow point is catching on the feed ramp, I believe that is the issue.

Ideas?

My 582 m30 has had zero feeding issues with any ammo. Only issues I have is with light strikes in hard primer Tula and wolf polyformance

I have only shot brass cased FMJ or polymer tipped Hornadys that have an FMJ profile. Most Mini-30 ammo issues are ignition related, the Mini's firing pin doesn't like Berdan primed Com bloc ammo. Some say they have no issues with Brown Bear, Silver Bear, etc. Try some FMJ, you might get lucky and have no fail to fires.
