Dynamit Nobel 9mm 124grn FMJ 50rd Box
Anybody else out there own a P-08 Luger?
Well, you know how finicky it is with ammo, but the truth (what I have found) is that if you keep the Luger reasonably clean and feed it what it likes, its very reliable.
I have been told by a Luger expert that the P-08 really likes a heavier-weight bullet that is longer in the nose. The hotter and heavier ammo tends to "kick" the old toggle action better and cycles the action better.
So yeah...thats why most bulk 115gr 9mm ammo (like WWB or Blazer Brass) is VERY iffy on feeding in the Luger.
A few years ago, I experimented and found two kids of commercially available 9mm to be best in my 1918 Luger. One was the Greek made "Olympic" 124gr fmj ammo and the other was this stuff that Aim is now carrying.
So if you have a vintage Luger and want ammo that feeds right all the time....grab some of this Swiss Geco stuff because it is accurate and very reliable in the Pistole Parabellum.
...thought I'd pass this along.
Yes, its pricey for regular plinking stuff in your Glock or XD but it runs beautiful in the P-38 and the Luger. I am ordering a case today.
