    Default CM9 Break in period

    Whats everyone think of using Aguila ammo for breaking a new CM9 in and would you use 115grain or 124 grain to do it?

    It isnít going to make a bit of difference. Clean it, Lube it correctly and shoot it. When I took my CM9 to the range for break-in, I was using some old Portuguese military surplus FMJ rounds . Shot those great, but it took a few magazines before it worked reliably with my more mild cast bullet reloads. That was 2013. These days the little gun functions flawlessly with my reloads, milsurp, and every commercial brand Iíve tried.

    I agree to a point. I've no experience with Aguila, for some reason the name just turns me off.
    That being said Kahrs like relatively full power loads especially in the early stages. I used Blazer Aluminum.
    None of mine have required much break in, guess I was lucky. I always shoot several hundred before it goes in the carry rotation but all mine had no boggles. I could sling shot from day one, no worries.

    Hopefully you'll have the same luck.

    so what you are saying is to use the 124 grain load over the 115? I use the 124 in my M&P all the time.

    I donít know if it mattered but I used 124 grain brass cased to break mine in and had zero malfunctions.

    If it were me I'd keep them both the same. I'd lean towards the 124 anyhow.
