    I've had very good luck with the Federal Tactical JHP 115gr +P rounds. They feed very well.

    Of course, I'm just now breaking in my PM9, and an issue with the slide-to-frame fit and the rails is causing significant failure to chamber rounds. I'm positive this has nothing to do with the ammo, as this also occurs with the same frequency with Remington/UMC FMJ 115gr, HMC range rounds (under-powered), and a few others. With a polished feed ramp and resolution of the rail issues, the Federal round will be stellar. (I realize this doesn't appear to be a glowing report, but I'm convinced the PM9's behavior across all rounds has nothing whatsoever to do with the Federals I send through it. BTW, these same rounds also feed perfectly through a CZ P01 and Browning BDM I have.)

    I have the Speer Gold Dot 9mm 124 grain +P short barrel ammo in my PM9. No problems with any ammo I have fed through the weapon.

    Thanks for the suggestion badge4436!

    Someone was telling me to try the Winchester White Box which is 115 gr. Have you used these rounds?

    Thanks again!
