M9 Eclipse

Hello folks. Newbie here on the forum and newly purchased M9 Eclipse I just picked up. Totally stock weapon for now with maybe a aftermarket drop in trigger depending.

My question is if any of you have found any particular ammo that is a problem in feeding?

Thank you and good to be here.

Welcome to the site from Tennessee.

Don't own a Micro9 so don't know about ammo. I would break in with 124/147gr FMJ.

My M9 doesn't like WWB. I got a lot of FTE's with it. (5 out of 25 rounds)

Welcome from Northeast, Pa. Congratulations on your Micro 9. I don’t own one either but I would start with round nose ammo then go to self defense ammo.

Thank you all for the feedback. I have heard a heavy grain to break it in prior to purchasing. I will be using a 124 gr. round nose to run through the pistol for sure in that process.

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois mtsheron and congratulations on the new M9. I favor heavy loads for breaking in guns, in the case of the 9mm I use 147 gr. FMJ rounds. How about stopping by our "New Member Introduction" sub forum and introducing yourself to the membership?
