Welcome to the site from Tennessee.

Before range trip; Clean, lube, extra lube...shoot...repeat shoot.

I like 147gr FMJ or at least 124gr FMJ. For break-in.

Welcome to the forum from northern Illinois Wookie and congratulations on the new Micro 9. Like 2sharp2 I like 147gr. FMJ for breaking in 9mm handguns. How about stopping by our "New Member Introduction" sub forum and introducing yourself to the membership?

You can drop the price lower with coupons, My M9 did just fine with it and didn't spend a fortune. For break in, go with what 2Sharp2 said. But this works great for me as a range ammo. You'll find the Browning on sale, but it smokes like a chimney. https://www.brownells.com/ammunition...ampaign=Itwine

Cool Hey Ya'll!!

Welcome to the forum from Monroe, Georgia!!!

As for your question; clean, lube, shoot 147 grain FMJ ammo to break in (500 rounds). After that, use anything that it will digest reliably!! Sky is the limit!!

I thought wookies only used crossbows??!! Shows what I know!!

I support the info here. Take enough ammo to get familiar with it.

Then clean & lube it. Go back and shoot some more.
