    pf-9 ammo

    What has been some reliable defense ammo for the kel tec pf-9.

    It worked great with the 115gr and 125gr fmj reloads.

    I tried some remington golden saber 124 +p that it couldn't even get through a magazine.

    Have an older PF9 that's never been back for ungrades and a newer one. Both feed 124+p GD fine. Newer one likes DPX but older one doesn't.

    My exact same experience. What fed through mine perfectly and it is now kept loaded with is Federal's Expanding Full Metal Jacket ammo.

    124 +p Gold Dot works in both my old and new PF9. Chronographs 1126 fps out of em.

    That sounds pretty good forestranger. Do you use the regular or short barrel 124 +p ?

    P.S. Do you think there is any difference in the two?

    Use regular GD 124+p. Never seen SB version in local gunshops. Stocked up on 50rd boxes at $20ea. at local gun shows vs $20+ per 20 rd boxes in gunshops.

    As far as difference, saw somewhere the short barrel version was a little slower but like folks above said, it's probably designed to expand better at lower velocities than regular +p.

    CCW ammo

    Two guys at the shop have them. One carries 124gr Gold Saber the other 115gr +P DPX. Both are happy with their choice.

    FWIW, none of us ever agrees on ammo there. My shortest 9mm has 124gr Hydra Shok in it.

    FNP9 and FMP9M loaded w/DPX. Oldest PF9 will feed DPX, just hard to get that first round to chamber so I use GD in it and newest one and spare mag. DPX averages around 1160 fps out of PF9s. Good stuff. When I ever send oldest PF9 back for upgrades incl. new barrel, I'll probably carry DPX in all my 9s.
