Usually after 200 fmj rounds and a 50 rd box of holler points I’d consider it reliable
P229 Enhanced Elite
One box of Speer gold dots. (50)
When I went to a G19 from a Khar 9.
I had shot Glocks for years but never carried one for EDC. Once I saw the HP ammo would feed with no problem, I went with it.
It didn’t hurt that the range master had given me the box of ammo either.
But I did carry a 5 shot revolver on an ankle holster for a BUG, when I was a cop and I only ran two cylinders thru it before I qualified with it…so technically it was 50 rnds for the qual but only 10 rounds for the test.

It use to be 500 ball and 100 carry but the times lately have made me re-evaluate that.
The last 2 new carry guns I bought were a Wilson Combat Beretta 92 and a Shadow Systems MR920. Both got 200rds of ball ammo and 50 of carry ammo and at that point I'm ok with carrying them.

I currently look to run 3 mags through with a combination of ball and hollow point/hunting ammo. My assumption is with modern manufacturing processes and buying a firearm from a reputable manufacturer that a limited number of rounds to prove that it does what it should with a few different mags and ammo brands is all that is required.
Has any manufacturer or any .gov organization ever conducted a study to see if there is a number of rounds that is associated with flushing out a “bad” gun?

I’m new here but I just went and put 3 boxes of various ammo and a mag of HST in my latest purchase and I feel confident in its ability to perform.
Pistol is a 229 legion, I gave my edc g19 to my brother and have moved on.
