Hi all, I've been lurking for a while and reading a lot of good info.

My pistol license just came in last week ;D So I went to my local gun shop and ordered a Taurus 24/7 Pro 9mm 10+1 round. I was wondering about ammo, I went to walmart and bought a box of winchester 115g full metal jacket 100 round- I looked at the remington 9mm 115 gr fmj and it is shorter than the winchester ??? Are these two different types of ammo? should I use one or the other?

Welcome and congrats on your purchase!

could be the setback was off on one or the other but both of those are fine for plinking.

Winchester are good for plinking. I use to use that but I started using CCI BLAZER aluminum casing they are alot lighter then the brass casing since I have a 17 round clip for my 24/7 Pro the differance is about 5-8oz. BTW if im not mistaking you should be able to get a 17 round Mag for your gun through Taurus. Just in case you didnt know.

Most ammo is made to tight tolerances for fit and function in any gun. Chamber diameters can change from gun to gun and no two being exactly alike. Ammo compaines make their ammo with this in mind to a certain extent.
Any of the ammo makers products from the 115 grain bullet weight up to about 147 grain should work in the 24/7. 90 grain loads may very well be too short to feed well or work at all in the action. There are some out there.

All cartridges can be of varying lengths and sizes. Most are within parameters that will fit your gun.

Remington's ammo may have bullets that are seated deeper in the case or are crimped more tightly or in another way than the Winchester. These should work fine in your auto.
Wichester work well also.

Reading up on the threads in the Factory Loads board would bring you up to speed on any ammo info.

Here are some oldies but goodies;

I would have ordered the 17 round version, But here in New York there is a ban on High capacity mags so 10 rounds are the limit. Unless I bought a pre-ban gun(used) then it's ok. This is all new to me, but I'm learning. I thought it was a nation wide ban but it seems i'm wrong.

Yeah I forgot NY and some other states have a HI-CAP ban. That kinda blows, but the law is the law.
