    Most of my practice ammo has been Georgia Arms 180gr .40S&W. For carry, I have Federal HST 180gr. Don't think that gun has ever given my a single problem...

    My 9mm 239 eats... EVERYTHING. But I usually give it 124gr. +P Speer Gold Dots.

    My 9mm DAK P239 eats everything from S&B, WWB, AE, etc for FMJ and Remington Golden Sabers for JHP.

    Mine has never malfunctioned on anything thru about 1500 rounds. Range ammo has included WWB, Remington UMC, American Eagle, and Federal Champion. Pretty much sticking with Federal now because it is cheap and clean. Defensive ammo has included Remington Golden Saber 147gr Bonded and Non-Bonded versions.

    Carry ammo is Federal 165 gr. HST (40 S&W) but it has eaten everything I've ever fed it. I do not shoot steel case ammo in handguns, but I've shot a variety of everything else.
