Welcome to HK Pro. Do you have an idea of what will be your first HK?

The VP9 is a gateway gun. It's always the same song and dance. First the VP9, then something else, then you'll empty your retirement account and kids college fund. It never ends.

Welcome to the site. You've been warned.

No break in needed lol. I've shot Blazer Brass, PMC, Magtech, all 115gr bullets with no hiccups. I also shot my reloads which are with Rainier Ballistics 115gr projectiles (I think copper plated, round nose) with 4.3gr of Hodgdon TiteGroup.

My workup loads started with 3.9gr, 4.0gr, 4.1gr, 4.2gr of TiteGroup and all of these did not lock the slide back after last round. 4.3gr worked perfectly, and without showing any pressure signs. But with all reloading, your results may vary so please do not attempt these loads unless you know what you're doing. The copper plated projectiles are softer than full metal jacket/FMJ and I think this causes the bullet to form to the bore much easier and travel through with less effort. I'm thinking that's why it needed a higher pressure load to be able to push the slide to full travel and allow it to lock back after firing the last round.
