Ballistic Machinist tries to put all important info out front and center.

If there is a known issue with any of our products we will do our best to let you know.

With the 380 Interceptors, there are two pistols we need to note.


  Rock Island Baby Rock

The slide release has a large lip that interferes with the large 

hollow point and causes the next round to jam most of the time.

We can not recommend our ammo in this pistol.


Glock 42

The G42 will not chamber the round if you use the slide release.

However, it will work if you pull the slide back and let it go.

We have also found some mags work better than others. 

Currently testing a DPM Systems recoil Reduction system to boost reliability.
