Default PM9 ammo

Hello,
I just purchased my second Kahr, a PM9 to use as my BUG and some plain clothes carry. I know all the debate on which ammo is best in 9mm, but what runs most reliably in these PMs? In my full size Berettas I use Federal 115BPLE +p+. Any thoughts?

PM9s don't seem to be ammo sensitive. You will see lots of recommendations for Gold Dots mostly 124gr +P, Critical Defense, Hydra Shoks etc. I personally like the HST 124gr in both +P and standard.

Mine won't hand rack very many rounds but does very well with the Winchester PDX1 Bonded in 124 grain.

That said, it eats everything I feed it.

We use HST in our 40s. I think you suggestion on the 124gr HST might be the ticket. Thanks

Remington golden saber 124 +P BJHP for me, 12 bucks for 25 rds at sportmansguide.com works for me no jams on the 6 rd mags only problematic on the 7 rd mags but this is due to the 7 rds mag not the bullet, Kahr sent me a newly designed base plate I'll post results as soon as get a chance, I also purchased 25 rounds of winchester bonded PDX1 elite at wally world for $17.00 + tax to try. As for practice rounds winchester NATO 124 gr +P at sports authority can be had for $12.00 + tax for 50 rds per box, little bit more that the 115gr but well worth it in my opinion a bit more kick but works very well on very short barrels.

in my CM9, I've had no issues with Winchester Ranger 147gr. Granted, it is the only ammo in 9mm JHP that my city carries, so I'm stuck with it.

I can't remember all of the different types of ammo that I have run through my PM9. It has run just fine with they wide variety of ammo I have used.


I really like the Gold Dot 124 standard pressure or +P I have carried both.

My PM9 has eaten everything I can get in the magazine. I like gold dots and Blackhills extra power

Iíve ran 23 different loads in my PM9, no issues. Carry Gold Dot 124+p or 147 gr.
