This is a very impressive site/forum.

Recently purchased a USP9 after having used a revolver for years.

I am not familiar with 9mm ammo.

I would appreciate any recommendations for ammo for (i) range and (ii) home defense – hopefully something I can buy for an inflated price on gunbroker.

I looked through the various forums and didn’t find any current recommendations, although I may have missed the obvious.

Thank you.

Welcome....

From experience on ammo:

HKs eat anything, but only use Brass cased ammo, and avoid reloads if possible.

HomeDefense: Any Federal HST or Speer Gold Dot works great. Check YouTube for shootingthebull or tn9outdoors, or just search for ammo tests. Lucky Gunner keeps on their website, ammo tests they've done.

For 9mm, we use either HST 124 or 147 +P in SKs, don't have to use +P in 4" or longer barrels. I also use Federal 115 +P+.

Range fodder:

Q4318 NATO from Winchester, Blazer Brass, Speer Lawman, Fiocchi, Sellier and Bellot, Geco, Ruag, I used to buy whatever of those was cheapest, good thing I have a stockpile as ammo prices literally have tripled since December, not to mention supply is very limited now.

HTH, welcome to the HK addiction.
