    Any 9mm ammo brand I should avoid?

    I was going to go ammo shopping at my local walmart, and wanted to know if there is any brand I need to avoid. Will probably buy as cheap as I can...

    Thanks!

    I've had issues with Tula ammo in some 9mm but my OSS feeds and shoots it fine.

    I have the PT-99 and it will digest anything I put in it. I was buying the WWB as it was the only thing I could find at a reasonable price. Before that I had over 2000 rounds of Aguila, again never a problem, this was a gift from some one who could not get it to function in their 9 mm. Over the time I owned the gun I shot many different brands without a problem. Now I mainly use my reloads problem free.

    If we're talking about practice/plinking, I'd buy whatever was cheapest. Unless it proves unreliable in your gun(s), it should be good to go. If you don't plan to reload, the steel and aluminum case stuff is often the best deal, although commercial reloads (like that available from Georgia Arms, USA Ammo, and others) can also be a good value.

    Your PT92 should eat anything you feed it. No problem.

    My old PT92 is a pre-decocking model. It's had a diet of 9x19 that includes all of the larger manufacturers, surplus, and even +P+ "submachine-gun ammo". Each gun will have ammunition that it prefers over some others as far as accuracy goes. Mine shoots just about anyone's 124 gr. ammo more accurately than the 115 gr.

    +1 on Tula ammo unless you want to practice malfunction drills (they sometimes get their handgun primers and their rifle primers mixed up). Also if you want to be able to recover a few intact rounds from plastic coke bottles or coffee cans. I think they have some light loads sometimes.
    Always remember to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle your targets
    Reduce them to shreds
    Reuse shoot them more than once
    Recycle whatever is left over

    I've only used Tula ammo in .40 S&W, and my PT840 loved it.

    As for 9mm, steer clear of Monarch. My dad picked up an S&W Sigma and it came with a free box of it, and every other round was FTF or FTE. Same problems when we tried feeding it to my PT111.

    WWB is great for plinking, as is the gigundo-pack Remington UMC. only had one FTF in my PT111 with the WWB(which was solved by feeding the round to the big, ugly Sigma), and I've yet to have issues with the Remington UMC.

    Just make sure the ammo is from a respectable manufacturer that you have heard of before! I once bought a (on sale) box of .357 ammo that was from a manufacturer that I never heard of before. When I fired it a huge cloud of smoke bellowed out the end of the barrel in my 6" .357, lol.
