You need to determine which ammo is the most accurate out of your gun . I would say to grab a couple of boxes of 115, 124 and 147 grain from different mfg's.

124gr FMJ is hard to get at Dicks and Wal-Mart. Once and a while they have it. Bulkammo dot com is a good source. You'll just be breaking it in for a few hundred rounds, although it shouldn't need it. Also, start getting your HP or Self defense ammo choices sorted out too. It's pricey, but you'll need to make sure it works and is accurate.
Winchester Train and Defend line of ammo is good. Wal-Mart should have it. The Train is 147gr FMJ. It's well priced too.

Shoot 200 rounds of 115 to break it in. Then try 50 rounds of 124 and 50 of 147. If you can't tell the difference, stick with 115.

Take a look at Georgia Arms Canned Heat 9mm in 115, 124 or 147 in 250/500/1000 cans. You can save on shipping if you order and can pickup at the Chantilly show.

Plus you get an ammo can and repairable brass to boot

Never shot any Georgia Arms stuff, but have shot thousands of rounds of Freedom Munitions. Your first order is free shipping, they always have shipping specials, no sales tax, great target ammo. Always goes bang, plus you can try various bullet weights, and see which you pistol prefers.

I have been a lurker in this forum for a couple months, but I bought a VP9 in July. I recommend 124gr until it is broken in. The recoil spring is very stiff and you might have some malfunctions with 115gr. I read this on the HK forums and didn't believe it. I believe it now after trying 115 gr the first time at the range. I have 600 rounds through it and it is fine with 115gr now. I used Blazer Brass or Federal American Eagle to break it in. I have since been using Blazer Brass 115gr with no issues.

I've heard you can put the vp40 recoil spring in and helps with hotter ammo. I might be wrong about why.
