I have had malfunctions with the PMC ammo also. I have never tried the Winchester.  Midway has the Fiocchi for $13.99 a box which is quite reasonable even with shipping added.
Mr. Mason can tell you more but from your serial number your gun was made around 1920.

Thanks for the date info.
The problem with getting ammo is that I live in MA.  Midway and some of the other Big Boys won't ship ammo, or even unprimed brass, to MA. 
I just bought a box of Lellier & Bellot ammo in NH that I'll try.

I have always used the Winchester ammo as it is readily available where I am at. Guess I have gotten fortunate that so far my pistols all have functioned on it. Stoppages I have had been due to Magazine issues

Battis: The internet is your friend. If my local gunshop does not have ammo I want I go online. Check out ammoseek.com.

I can find the ammo, but getting it shipped to Massachusetts is tough.  I just bought 100 .32 cast bullets (just plain old lead bullets - no primers, powder, brass) from Montana Bullet Works but I had to have it shipped to New Hampshire.  Funny things is, it's perfectly legal to ship to MA.
So, I'm going to try reloading these little buggers.  Should be fun.
