    Default HK P7M8

    Greetings, I am new to the HK Forum. I just bought an HK P7M8 and just love the gun. What 9mm ammo works best with this pistol's unique rifling?

    Greetings from Scottsdale!

    P7 was designed to work with 124gr ammo. Other weights may lead to malfunctions. There's a lot on this particular subject if you search the board (upper right corner). Did you pick it up locally?

    The P7 series was designed before all of the advance 9mm ammunition we see today. Back then 115 grain FMJ was the norm. That is what I shoot. Anything between that and 124 gain is fine. Do not use anything higher, like 147 grain, or +P or +P+, as it will create overfunction and lead to parts wear and breakage.

    Welcome to the forum! When it comes to P7s, you always need at least 2! One to shoot while the other one cools down.
    Aim High!

    I've shot 147gr and not had a problem but that doesn't mean it's not possible. I usually shoot 124gr as well.

    A great gun to shoot. Stack up on as many magazines as you can afford. The prices have been going up lately. Also, parts are hard to come by so if you get a chance, scope them up too.
