I'd like to get an idea of what everyone's favorite ammo is for their P99 9mms.  

Let's hear what you like for self-defense vs. range ammo.

Thanks for participating!

9mm:

For self defense, I prefer the Winchester Ranger "T" series 127 grain +P+ ammunition.

For range use, I primarily shoot my own reloads.  From time-to-time, I also shoot Winchester "white box" 115 grain FMJs and 115 grain CCI Blazers.

For my P99 9mm I use Winchester white box 115 grain. That's for range use and I acutally keep it loaded with that all the time. The P99 .40 is what I reach for when the need arises at the homestead. In that I use Speer Gold Dot +P JHP 180 gr. For range use I use the Georgia Arms Canned Heat 180 gr. Both loads are great and behave similarly.

Range: Winchester "Value Pack" or CCI Blazer most of the time.
SD: currently the Winchester 115gr. HP in the white "generic" 50 round boxes, but i'll carry about anything, Speer GDHP 115's or 124's, Federal HSHP 135's.
The more i've learned about modern hollowpoint ammuntion, the less concerned I am with who's name is on the box. If its from a reputable manufacturer, and my P99 eats it with 100% reliability, then i'll carry it.

RangeWinchester White Box Wally World Specials, Denel or Geco. The P99 seems to eat just about anything.

SD Speer Gold Dot 124gr +P ammo....wish the P99 was chambered in .45

I use the Winchester Ranger 147 T rounds. My P-99QA shoots this ammo right on the money and groups are outstanding.

Carry: Federal 124gr. +P EFMJ (Expanding FMJ)
Practice: 124gr. FMJ No Brand (A local shop loads these and sells them $20 for 200 rounds! After several thousand rounds, I've had zero bad rounds and found it cleaner than Whinchester white box. Can't beat that! )
