    9MM Ammo Recommendation/Suggestions?

    Hi Everyone,

    I am looking for your recommendations regarding ammo for my Smith & Wesson M&P9 2.0 - 9MM. This is my first purchase and I don't know what brand and gr of ammo is good. No Steel ammo (Not Allowed at Target Sports Range).


    Looking at the following options:

    - https://www.gotenda.com/shop/ammunit...k-of-1000-rds/
    - https://www.gotenda.com/shop/ammunit...k-of-1000case/
    - https://www.firearmsoutletcanada.com...l#.XgUItkdKhPY


    Any other deals/suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    I bought this, cheapest I've seen but I haven't looked hard. Purchased because it was where I was making a rifle purchase anyways.
    I would like CCI or S&B but this stuff is going bang as it should so far

    My M&P40 eats everything I throw at it. Mostly CCI Blaser in both brass and aluminum case and a good amount of American Eagle. The S&B ammunition I’ve tried has been fine.

    I have shot several thousand s&b in my m&p 9. No issues, I’ve had no issues with any ammo really. I’ve shot lots of blazer brass and aluminum as well as some steel cased stuff. I have also shot tons of reloads, both mine and factory reloads.

    You really need to try a box of as many brands as you can to find the ammo your pistol shoots best. The price means nothing. Do not buy any ammo in bulk until you have tried a box.
    Feeding and going 'bang' reliably is rarely an issue with any factory ammo.
    Steel ammo means steel jacketed. There is steel cased, which isn't the same thing, too. Mind you, steel cased can have steel jackets. The other type is "Bi-Metal" which is copper plated steel jacketed.
    It's best to buy ammo(and reloading components when you get that far. Yes, you will.) locally. So where you actually are matters somewhat. Buying ammo on-line gets expensive in a hurry. The shipping, the cost of which is set by the carrier not the seller, will negate any cost savings. Government thinks ammo is a hazardous good too.

    any bulk commercial ammo will likely run fine, you may want to try different weights (115, 124, 147 gr) and find what works best for you and/or gun

    ^This. Bullet weight will have a greater impact that any minute differences between commercial grade ammo will. A pistol may prefer 124 grain while a Sub2000 may prefer 115. Try a box of each and see.

    Just about anything with a brass case should work fine. Avoid the Sumbro garbage that showed up for a while. Your sights likely came calibrated for 124 gr.

    I ran 3 hundred rounds of steel case Winchester through my S&W SD9 without any problems, Cabela's has 1000/$199 right now, tempting just for backup
