Agreed. You’ll find you’re not alone, why pick up an HK if not held to a higher standard (the posted XDM is cheaper, which is an HS2000 with a Springfield tax).
The VPx is reported to malfunction with 115gr out of the box, but fine after broken-in.
What is your /rd cost?
Online (SGAmmo) 1K/pk S&B 124gr FMJ is $0.19/rd delivered.
