    Can I run 115 grain fmj through my gen4 g26? Does this low powered stuff cycle ok? Should I use the winchester nato stuff to simulate my +P carry load? Thx.

    You should be able to shoot any 9mm ammo.I started mine off on Federal 115gr.FMJ without issue.So far it's shot 2650 mostly 115gr from different manufactures without any failures.

    You should have no problems. That is what use for target practice and not a single hiccup on G26.

    I've heard it recommended to start off with 3 or 4 boxes of hotter & heavier ammo, like 124 grain just to break-in the gun. (To kinda shake things up until all the parts fit together better.) Others will tell you it's unnecessary. If it's running OK after 3-400 rounds you're good to go!

    IMO, at self defense distances, accuracy shouldn't be an issue, no matter what ammo you use.

    My G4 26 will cycle anything. All of the 115gr fmj I have used have been fine.

    Since the 115 grain ammunition is usually the least expensive and since the ultimate goal is for that and most other ammunition to work fine, I would suggest getting one box of it and trying it. If by chance your range time is extremely limited by travel time or other commitments, get a few boxes of 124 grain stuff also. Then if the 115 grain does not work you will not have completely wasted the time.

    I just picked up a G26 Gen 4 on Saturday and put 100 rounds of 115 grain FMJ through it yesterday, it worked flawlessly.
    I had the 115 on hand. Next time I will take some 124 and 147 along to see what I think of those.

    I like to run winchester 9mm nato through my 9mm glocks as practice ammo just because it's only about 3$ more a box per 50 to the wwb 115gr fmj. It feels better to buy ammo that can be used for practice and hd(If primary preferred jhp(gold dots 124gr is gone for whatever reason). The main reason is the slight difference in cost for me though.
