Bought some 115gr 9mm rounds for my VP9SK based on the recommendation of the firearms salesman at my local sporting goods store. I was looking on their website and saw that they had options all the way up to 230gr. Where can I find out the practical-limit for 9mm grain size for my firearm. Tried Googling it, but no luck.
H&K VP9SK Compact 9mm | Sig Sauer P238 Texas Edition .380 ACP | Springfield Armory Saint AR-15 5.56mm NATO
This is one of my favorite rounds. I do not have a VP9, but it runs nicely in my USPc.
If dogs don't go to Heaven, what's the point of going?
In terms of limitations I would say trial and error with different manufacturers and don't forget to report back what's good or not. The HK handbook recommends NATO spec 124gr. some people like to use heavier loads for the first 500 rounds as a"break in" period. I have used 89gr and it kept FTF every other round (my guess not enough power to compress the spring back), 115gr works and mainly use it for paper targets. Freedom Munitions Reman for 124gr HP and not a single FTF. You can also pick it up at their store if you live in the Houston area.
Thx! I think it was a filtering-error on the store's site. So I'm good with either 115gr or 124gr.
Not in Houston. Only spent a few months there on a job with GE - Oil & Gas. So glad...oh so glad...that I relocated to Dallas!
