What's your preference for ammo?

Postby ApolloX10 » Sun Nov 13, 2011 3:48 pm

Hey all, I've been putting WWB value and Blaser Brass through my Jericho 941R full size 9mm. She tends to have the similar feeding problems that most CZ75 clones get with the WWB rounds, and I just picked up the Federal Champion rounds. (haven't tried them yet, heard they have less problems than the WWB) The family is getting me some bulk ammo for Christmas/bday as well as the DPM recoil reduction system, anyone here have any advice on what ammo their jerichos like best? With and without the DPM recoil system? Sorry for posting a new topic, just looking for the most immediate answers 8-).

I was using the IMI Samson Di-Cut ammo which worked flawlessly. It has become, however, impossible to find available anywhere. I've only a few hundred rounds left in my stash, so I too am interested in learning what works well and what doesn't. Does anyone here have any experience with the Corbon 125 +P in a full size steel 941?

Thanks for the responses, I tried the federal champs today, and they fed great! not a single problem with about 200 rounds through her. And cleaning was almost sublime, had I used 10 WWB rounds she would have looked like she's been through hell and back. Definitely sticking with the Federals over the winchesters.

My preference for target shooting is MFS 9mm fmj 115 gr. or the S & B 124 gr. :)

My competition load : Winchester 9mm brass, Federal small pistol primer, 4.0 grains of Vihtavouri 320, 124 grain Berry's plated bullet, OAL 1.160, just enough crimp to eliminate the sharp edge of the case mouth,and 11# Wolf recoil spring. Runs flawlessly and is super accurate in my gun.

My favorite is Sellier & Bellot 115 or 124gr. I've never had any issues. It's usually pretty cheap too.
