    I recently purchased a SA EMP 9mm. I have shot 1911 45s for quiet a while and thought I would give this little gun a try. What weight bullet would yall think I should start off with in the 9mm. Thanks in advance.

    If that's a 9x19 (and I presume it is), the standard weights are 115 and 124, and 147 hollow points if you want to go sub-sonic. I run 115s in all my 9s.

    I heard the 124s are the best.

    124 is what NATO specifies. I personally like 115-125 gr bullets in the 9mm. My fav is a 125 2R cast from my Lee mold.
