    Default GMJ ammo in HK?

    Ok, Wally World has this: 9mm 100-Round GMJ Ammunition Pack: Hunting : Walmart.com for a good price locally. Question is, is GMJ ok to shoot in HK's? I have honestly never even heard of GMJ ammunition until just now. Oh yeah, and what's the difference between GMJ and FMJ?

    I believe it has to do with the copper content of the jacket. Instead of pure copper, there's some zinc in there, I believe. I think FMJs are pure copper.

    I would not worry about putting GMJs through my HKs. Your mileage may vary.

    It's safe to shoot.

    I shot 2000 rounds or so of it. It's the only ammunition I can say is actually inaccurate. On the same day, compared next to 2-3 other types of ammo, I couldn't get it to group under 5" at 5 or 7 yards. Pathetic.

    I've heard similar stories of horrible accuracy from other guys who train/shoot a heavy amount: Federal Champion 9mm keyholing
    DA/SA P2000. Because HK doesn't hate me, and I don't suck.

    Jacketed ammo exists for a purposeful, functional, performance-oriented reason. The only reason plated bullets exist is cheapness. . . they are cheaper to produce than authentic jacketed bullets are. When the only reason for existance is cheapness, you are bound to get an inferior product.
    HK is the way!
