Micro 9 Ammo

Best range ammo to run thru Micro 9? What does everyone use? American made or any ammo?

I've become a fan of Freedom Munitions round nose FMJ in whatever grain you want. Cheap and it works and is pretty clean. I've also used Wilson White Box from Walmart and Federal white box as well as American Eagle FMJ with good results.

I use nothing but Freedom Munitions for range ammo in .380, 9mm and .45.

I am awaiting my first Micro 9 CDP (without laser).
But my plans is this.
300 rounds of Freedom Munitions 147 grain.
Then trying Federal HST 147 in both standard and +P &/or Underwood Ammo 90 grain Extreme Defender or Penetrator.
Not holding my breath on anything with the Micro 9s track record.
But gonna break in with a heavy bullet.......

FM!!!

Why is everyone sold on FM? Not that it is not good ammo, I have shot it, but shipping for me is slow.

Sounds well thought out. I am cautious as well. My first Kimber and want to make it last.

It's inexpensive, great quality, clean and accurate. I only order when they have their big holiday sales and it's to restock my ammo locker not because I'm out of ammo. My orders are usually for a minimum of 2000 rounds and I don't care if it takes a week or a month for it to ship.

I like it because I can get 9mm FMJ for .21/round and get it in quantity. That makes it as cheap to shoot as I can find. And their .380 with the Hornady XTP is my .380 carry ammo so I'm able to practice with my carry ammo for about the same cost per round as any local target ammo I can find.
