    Welcome from Central Texas!!!

    I have shot a lot of Winchester WB 115 FMJ in my PF9 with no problem.

    Kel Tec PF9 is not rated for a large amount of +P ammo therefore I practice with standard pressure ammo.

    The HP carry ammo I am loaded with is Federal standard pressure 115gr.

    I use Golden Saber 124 gr., JHP. They feed perfectly in my PF-9.

    I use only 115 gr. in my PF-9, fmj for practice, and jhp for business, mine is not choosy about brands, I like the 115 for their speed.

    115 - 124 gr, HP's - JHP's, etc. for self defense... FMJ's for practice shooting.

    Now that I think about it, I don't believe I have ever had a malfunction in my P11. She's gobbled up everything I have ever run through it. She's really a decent small firearm.

    My P11 is my "tool box" gun,....literally! I carry it if I'm in a rush to get out the door & I don't feel like running upstairs to grab the Sig or Colt out of the safe.

    She's stoked with Winchester Sub-sonic ST's, (147gr JHP).

    For practice I use whatever is cheapest, but for serious, I use DoubleTap 124g Gold Dot +P. They feed reliably, and are within limits of +P pressure, but give near .357Sig performance. Accuracy is very good, too.

    I bought a good supply of this ammo before the rush, and I don't know if DoubleTap is currently able to get the 124 Gold Dots. I'm sure the velocity and muzzle energy are similar, and I know whatever bullet they are using will be a good one.

    I agree with the above.
