Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois DougB. For the first couple of hundred rounds I like heavy FMJ bullets. I break all my 9mm's using 147 gr. FMJ rounds.

Welcome to the site from Tennessee! I agree with Chuck and also use the 147gr 9mm ammo for break in. I have also used 115gr in my 9mm 1911's with no malfunctions but not in a Micro9 because I don't own a Micro9 but it may work fine with 115gr.
I used 115gr because that's all I could get at the time.

Welcome to the forum from Ohio. I use 147 grain ammo to break in all my new 9mm. YMMV

Welcome to the KT and I'll agree with others here...the heavier ammo is the best bet for a successful break-in.

Welcome to KT from Jacksonville, FL were it's sunny and 60 degrees.

I've never shot the Micro9. However, like most of others, I prefer to use 124 and 147 grain ammo in my Kimber. I have the UC II 9mm.

Good luck at the range.
