      Any ammo to avoid for a Px4?

      Greetings! I am the proud owner of a new Px4 9mm full size. I want to buy some cheap ammo to use at the local range. Has anyone found the Px4 to be picky with certain ammo? What about 115grain FMJ Sellier & Bellot?

      Sorry if this has been covered already. Thanks in advance!

      I am not surprised you have had no comments about what doesn't run down the tube of a PX4. Mine shoots anything you throw at it. Go and buy a box or a bunch of Win. white box and burn 'em up.

      Be safe......have fun!

      Yeah, that gun should just about shoot anything. Those are excellent pistols, but I'm just biased towards Beretta products. They build a good gun.

      Actually S&B is superior to most cheaper range ammo you find at wallyworld and much better than PMC Bronze(powderpuff) and Federal 115 grain that runs (dirty) for me.

      Mine shoots everything, even lead, just fine.
      But for accuracy it likes the hot stuff.

      I started with the compact 9mm and put some 3000 rounds of 5 different brands of FMJ and defensive ammo through it without any problems. I just traded for the full size 9mm and put 200 rounds of S&B through it with no problems. I agree with Denner, the S&B ammo is good range ammo. I have not shot any of their defensive ammo.

      I found this forum just now due to a brand new PX4 compact 9mm jamming 3-4 times per magazine. Was shooting PMC 115 grain FMJ. Switched to Federal 115 grain FMJ (from Walmart) and I shot 60 rounds with no issue. Went back to PMC, fail to eject or load several times per magazine.

      What's some of the best defensive ammo out there? I shoot (winch) at the range but I really have no clues as what to use for carrying or home defense.

      I haven't tried Steel cased ammo in mine. But, I read that the mags do not like them.

      I had a couple failure to fires with the Tula steel case, but I suspect that's the ammo, the primers were definitely struck properly. I don't recall a feeding or extract problem yet. As far as accuracy, I've put WWB 115, Tula 115, Hornady Critical Defense 115, Winchester 147, and another load I can't remember off the top of my head through it. All work quite well.

      Cool

      Yeah, I would have to add Hornady Critical Defense 115gr FTX to denner's list (which is an excellent list). It's a Flex Tip round, similar to the Ballistic Tip found in rifle rounds, it keeps the hollow-point from clogging. Nickel-plated cases, and they provide quite decent impact power for a 115 9mm. It's no .44, you understand, but recoil is almost unnoticed in the Px4, which allows quick and accurate follow-up shots.

      Also, this forum has some of the most WTF smileys I've seen in years.

      I myself have the Px4 compact and I use Hornady Critical Defense for HD and prefer Winchester White Box for range shooting. I have over 500 rounds down range and have never had any issues.
