    Whats the best SD ammo in 9mm that these little Kahrs shoot well? I need to pick some up!

    I have tons of ball ammo but really will prefer to carry it with the best 9mm SD stuff out there.

    Thanks!

    I carry Speer Gold Dot HP 147 gr's in my MK9. It likes it.

    Try a couple in yours and see what it reliably feeds.

    Federal Hydra Shok 124 Gr. in my PM9.
    Is it the best? I don't know but my Kahr likes and shoots it reliably.

    I found these three different loads to try. Hopefully all three will function perfectly... then it'll be a toss-up....

    I'm not that wealthy! I have a source for HST's at $22 for a box of 50!! Corbon's... not so cheap!

    I'll stick with the HST's for now.

    Wow, never knew they had short barrel hollow points, I will have to pick some up. Wonder if they make it in .357sig for my Glock 33. I will have to look into the short barrel ammo.

    For my Kahr CM9 (and my Glock 19), I am limited to loading it with Winchester Ranger 147gr. Bonded JHP. (That's what my department stocks in 9mm and that's what I'm allowed to carry)
    They will allow me to carry a different type of ammo as long as it's approved by the range master (who is now me!) but then I'd have to pay for it myself (which I know I'm too cheap, so I won't).

    nope, they don't make it in .357sig.
