Beretta 21A Bobcat



Log in to see fewer ads
Got my new Bobcat this week and took it to the range yesterday to try it out. I tried three different kinds of ammo, Remington Goldens, CCI Stingers, and CCI Mini mags. Most of the posts I have seen on the net say Mini Mags are their go to ammo. I couldn't get one mag thru it of them. I had multiple FTE and FTFs. It shot one mag of Stingers perfectly. I tried the Goldens and it zipped thru four mags without a hitch. I brought it home and gave it a good cleaning and lube job and will try it again next week. If the same thing holds true I guess I will be a llttle ahead by being able to shoot nothing but the cheaper bulk stuff but after all I have read about its ammo likes and dislikes I was a little surprised.

Based on my experience, the 21A Bobcat tends to break in a little stiffly but after a few hundred rounds settle in just fine. Mine now likes CCI Standard Velocity just fine. A fun little gun to shoot if you're not too picky about great accuracy out of that short barrel! Sure is easy to carry.

Congrats on the new Bobcat.

My Bobcat won't run hollow point Mini Mags very well, but it does much better with solid nose Mini Mags. With my gun the hollow point opening tends to catch on the chamber opening when feeding.

Like little kids, each gun decides which foods it likes best - go with the flow.

That was the best ammo on some Bobcats I used to have, and it still wasn't any better than maybe 90% reliable. I wanted the gun for extra small carry, so I sold them. Fun, otherwise.
