Ammunition selection for DB9
« on: February 27, 2019, 11:27:53 AM »
Why is the ammunition that is recommended so small, are their other types acceptable? Why does the manual say no ammunition recommended for short barrel pistols?
I understand why no +P or +P+ .

I think I read somewhere that the new Gen 4 is +P rated. Anyone?

Yes it is +p rated but we still reccomend a small dose. We did many test with +p. Your hand will thank you if you just stick with standard pressure.

+p is only for the AM2 and the GEN4 DB9

 I have a first Gen. model. Why does the manual stat no ammo labled for short barreled pistols?
 Is ammo sellections just a try and see thing? I know 115-124 grain only.

We do need to update our ammo selection.
Each person has different luck with different ammo. I do know that the DB9 gen 1-3 like softer loads and american Name brand ammo. I have found that the less felt recoil loads have been 100% reliable (for me). When i shoot Lawman ammo or gold dot, it kicks like a mule and i found that im more likely to have an issue. Say i had 5 brands of 115gr and i was shooting out of a 1911, most likely i would not tell the difference in felt recoil; now take the DB9 with the same 5 brands and you will be able to tell the difference in felt recoil between each brand. For me, I found that the lower felt recoil loads tend to run the best. I know it sounds like a weird test but it works. With a gun this small and light, its important that the gun doesn't have more recoil than what the shooter can comfortably handle.

As for short barreled pistol ammo, we have not tested too many brands of this ammo. The main reson for not testing with short barreled ammo is because we test with what we think most shooter will use, but i will make a note to get a bunch in to test.

I will post a new ammo list that is more in depth ASAP. Thank you for your feedback and questions.

Just buy a couple boxes of known good running brands of ammo, like the Remington UMC FMJ and JHP and see what runs 100% for you. Then stick to it. I happen run the PMC 115 gr. JHP and FMJ, and I don't believe it's on any DB list, but it's 100% in my gun. The DB9 isn't a Glock 17 or 43, but what it is, is the smallest lightest 9mm auto out there. That alone is reason enough to see what works best for you and stick to it.

You’re saying you have no jams, ftf, etc. Chris? All my ammo are premium and verified as great ammo by gun store.

Not with the ammo I've selected to use with my DB9. That's not saying other ammo hasn't had issues, so I don't use them (what's the point, right?). For example, I carry Federal 124 gr HST in all my other 9mm's without issue, but it's not 100% in my DB9 (which I hate). Feed issues, although others may have different experiences. The ammo I run in my DB9 is not super premium, but it works, so I stick to it. Example. PMC 115 GR JHP or FMJ. Or the same with Remington UMC stuff. Nothing exciting, but it works for me.  :main_cheesy:

Hey Chris, read my DB9 repair turnaround time thread. Can you do 6+1 like I said mine can't? That resolved all my problems when I stop doing that.
