Just purchased a P2000SK 40 cal. and wondered if anybody had any suggestions regarding the best ammunition to use? Any favorite manufacturer to use? Any suggestions on best place to purchase my ammunition? I live in CA. Thank you
For range use I'm a fan of Speer Lawman TMJ 124gr, I use it for all my 9MMs (which is now only a P30 & P2000SK).
For SD use, I typically use Federal 124gr +P HSTs - I tried Ranger 127gr +P+. It worked fine in the P2000SK and operated in the P30, but ejection got erratic in the P30, so I went back to the HSTs for both. Obviously more recoil / noise and I just didn't think it was worth the trade off.
If you go with any modern JHP (Federal HST / Bonded, Winchester Ranger T / Bonded, Speer GDHP), you'll be fine.
I buy the Blaser brass-cased 180 FMJ for use at the range ($285/1000). For SD I have some Winchester Ranger 180 grain HP (I know, questions about expansion are an issue) and Federal 180 HP in their Hydro-shock flavor. The sk has liked anything & everything I have used in it and has functioned flawlessly, which is more than I can say about myself these days. Buy the best you can afford and stay away from steel cases. Shoot enough to be comfortable with your weapon and be able to load & drop magazines without thinking (just don't practice on a concrete floor, use a piece of carpet). Get out as often as you can and practice!
