Shot my new Gen 4 G23 today, third outing but second shooting .40 S&W. I did have a FTF with a Blazer round last week but in 100 Remington rounds today, I had 8-9 FTF. Basically the round was getting stuck on the feeding ramp. Easy to fix but frustrating. The good news is with the other ammo, better ammo, it had no issues.

100 rounds of Remington Value Pack 180gr JHP
100 rounds of Federal White Box 180gr FMJ
50 rounds of Speer Lawman 180gr FMJ
20 rounds of Speer GD 180gr JHP

Since you've changed ammo and it's worked. It's probably the ammo (bad batch).

polishing the feed ramp will definitely help.

Shooting the crap out if it will polish the ramp. Give it a couple hundred more fmjs and then try the Golden Sabers again.
Golden Sabers are fine, it's the cheap FMJ ammo.

If you don't want to keep practicing FTF's then get some flitz and a rag and shine up that feed ramp.
