SR9 Fiocchi 9mm subsonic ammo

HI,

New owner of a Ruger SR9. Was at the gun store today & bought a box of the only ammo they had, Fiocchi 9mm Subsonic 158 grain. Din't think anything of it at the time, but now I am wondering if it is ok to use it with the SR9.

Any info would be much appreciated!

Thanks,

Steve

From the Ruger website:

"What type of ammunition should I use in my Ruger 9mm pistol?
The Ruger 9mm pistols are chambered for the 9x19mm NATO Parabellum (9mm Luger) cartridge, compatible with the U.S. and foreign military or commercial 9x19mm loads manufactured in accordance with NATO, U.S., SAAMI, or CIP standards, including high-velocity, subsonic, tracer, hollow point, ammunition loaded in aluminum, steel, or brass cartridge cases, +P and +P+ ammunition. Note: The LC9™ is not rated for +P+ ammunition."

So I guess I'm ok to use it.....would still like to find out for though

Why don't you give us a range report after you shoot? I would like to see how it goes. Thx! and welcome to the forum!

Thanks! Will Do, I have yet to shoot the gun, so I don't have a baseline for comparison, hopefully I can scrounge up another box of ammo before the weekend and do some comparisons

I don't know if you go to a range with other people shooting too, but maybe you could trade a few bullets with them? They might want to try the subsonics. Good luck!

Subsonic rounds often have less recoil. On a new, possiblly tight SR9 you will absolutely have to be sure that you do not limp wrist it.

Otherwise you will have Failure to eject and jamming.

Scored last night at Walmart. Staring at the empty ammo section when the guy walked up with two cases of 9mm Winchester 100ct ammo. SO I bought my 3 box limit. Not going to shoot the Fiocchi this weekend, I'll save that for another time.

small world, you must have bought your sr9 where I got mine today I'm guessing... I grabbed two boxes of the fiocchi ammo since I was just happy they had 9mm ammo in stock. I can't wait to break this gun in, hoping to get out tomorrow to the range.

I bought the ammo at the Shooter's Outpost in Hooksett on Thursday. I've had the SR9 for a couple of months

Got to finally shoot it for the first time on Sat. Man I love this gun! Used the Winchester ammo from Wal-Mart. Ran 50 rounds through it trouble free. Can't wait to head out to the range again, very happy with my choice of the SR9!!!
