    I'm buying a Walther P99 in 9mm. Are they at all particular about ammo? If so, what have you had good luck with?

    Thanks

    Mine has fired everything through it without a single problem.

    I have a Walther P99, (had a P99c too, but sold it when I got a PPS), and both of the P99's would function perfectly with Winchester 115 gn. White Box fmj, (plinking ammo), Gold Dot 124 grain jhp's would function perfectly, but impact low at 7 yards.:barf:

    My favorite self defense round (in all my 9mm's) is DoubleTap 115 jhp's. :D

    Double Tap is g o o d stuff, check it out. (Available online @ www.doubletap.com.

    Mine has functioned with everything but some steel cased Seller and Bellot (wouldn't extract reliably).

    Feeds Everything

    My WALTHER P-99 has fed and fired everything I have tried. So far that includes:
    FEDERAL 124 grain HYDRO SHOK and +P+ HYDRO SHOK
    FEDERAL 124 grain HST +P
    FIOCHHI 115 grain JHP
    REMINGTON 124 grain GOLDEN SABRE +P
    REMINGTON 115 grain JHP
    SPEER 124 grain GOLD DOT
    WINCHESTER white box 115 grain ball

    The HST was particularly accurate.

    Thanks, it's good to hear that it eats pretty much everything.

    yup I had a bunch of blaser crap ammo(wouldnt work the action on my marlin .22) and gave it to some guy at the range in exchange for some range time with his gun. ATE it up.

    I took the P99 out yesterday morning. I started out with 115 gr. Winchester. I could keep most rounds in an 8" circle at 15 yards shooting free hand. After I finished that box, I started shooting some bulk remanufactured ammo I got from Dick's sporting goods. It cycled just fine, but I probably only got 4 out of the 15 rounds in the 8" circle. I hope my Browning Hi-Power likes the bulk stuff better.:mad:

    I had that same problem when I started shooting my P99. You might want to take a look at your grip and trigger pull. The P99's AS trigger, though nice, sometimes causes my finger to "muscle off" a bit.

    My P99 AS has never had a problem with any kind of ammo. I've put many different types of hollowpoints through it and it has performed perfectly.

    Haven't found any FMJ ammo mine didn't like.

    Haven't tested as many JHP's, but it likes everything I've tried.
